·1 min read

Brands are finally starting to recognize WNBA athletes — and we love to see it. Breanna Stewart collaborated with PUMA for the Stewie 1, Satou Sabally got her own Air Jordan 37, Candace Parker dropped three colorways of the adidas Exhibit B and Skylar Diggins-Smith recently revealed a "Desert Sky" footwear and apparel capsule with PUMA.

Washington Mystics small forward and shooting guard Elena Delle Donne partners with Nike for the Air Deldon, her first signature sneaker. The model features a FlyEase upper, an adaptive textile that allows for ease of wear for athletes of all kinds. This is a particular passion for Delle Donne whose sister has cerebral palsy and has struggled to find appropriate footwear.

Design details include a mint/grey/lime colorway, "EDD" logo tag at the toe and "DELDON" embossed at the heel. Take a closer look at the sneaker in the gallery above and stay tuned for release details.

Elsewhere in footwear, take an on-foot look at the Air Jordan 1 Low "UNC Grey."
