The 2019 WNBA season is officially underway, and all roads led to an all-new State Farm Arena as rookie Arike Ogunbowale and the Dallas Wings came to town.
Leading up to Friday night’s contest there were some pretty cool highlights surrounding the young rookie.
The recent Notre Dame grad named as one of the newest Nike signees along with 3 other rookies (Napheesha Collier, Kalani Brown and Kristine Anigwe).
Following the Nike announcement, the 2019 #WNBAKicks Top 10 Sneakerhead list was revealed, landing Arike at the #8 spot.
With the news of the announcements, many sneaker enthusiasts were curious to see what kicks the rookie would lace up in Atlanta.
As Dallas made their way to the court we noticed Ogunbowale wearing the LeBron 16 ‘Clear Jade’ which was a great compliment to the Wings uniform.
During 20 minutes of action, Ogunbowale tallied 12 points as the Wings fell short to the Dream in Atlanta 76-72.
Following Friday night’s matchup, we had an opportunity to catch up with Arike to get her thoughts on joining the Swoosh family, her #WNBAKicks Sneakerhead ranking and more.
