The Aces May Be 2nd In The West But Their Kicks Are Leading The Way

One thing for certain and two things for sure, their feet will be clean as the board of health.

The Las Vegas Aces sent shockwaves throughout the league when they acquired MVP runner up, Liz Cambage, in the offseason. They paired her with the reigning ROTY to form possibly the best frontcourt in the WNBA. The move has provided mixed results in this young season but one thing is certain, they’re dominating the sneaker game.

 A’ja Wilson has an endorsement deal with Nike so it’s a foregone conclusion that she will be rocking endless heat. She turned heads as one of the first to sport the Nike Adapt BB. The shoe is amazing and its self-lacing technology brings back memories of Marty McFly. In the game, Wilson has balled in everything from LeBron’s to Kobe’s. And she’s giving us some serious Flo Jo vibes with her patented single leg sleeve look. Off the court, she’s killed it every Air Max from the 90’s to the 720’s, styled the Jordan 1 and XI in every way possible and was serving in a pair of Off White Prestos. A’ja is definitely one of the flyest ladies in the league and her game unquestionably matches her swag. 

If you have been anywhere near the WNBA lately you know A’ja’s teammate, Ty Young. She is the sneaker queen of the league. She’s approaching style icon status and she’s not slowing down anytime soon. Young has been killing the game for quite some time and boasts one of the best shoe collections in basketball.

She has 500+ pairs of sneakers and her worst pair is better than your best pair. She’s been doing her thing on the court this year in a variety of Jordan XI lows and we can’t decide which ones are the dopest (cherry red or white/red, take your pick). But she might have shut everything down with a pair of Patchwork Nike Blazers she showed on her IG earlier this month. Ty Young has definitely set herself apart in the sneaker game and I’m sure she is going to keep killing it. 

The Aces have high expectations coming into this season and I am sure they will continue to grow together and yield positive results on the court. But one thing for sure and two things for certain, their feet will be clean as the board of health.
