They’ve teamed up with professional basketball player Sabrina Ionescu for the launch of the collection.
The pair have created the Sabrina 1, inspired by the New York Liberty player.
The lightweight sneaker features Nike React cushioning and Zoom Air in the forefoot to help players move quickly across the court.
It’s designed to be responsive and flexible and has a stabilising shank in the mid-foot so players don’t lose their balance.
Nike says its designed for impact and action “but it’s also packed with small meaningful details”.
This includes nods to Ionescu’s heritage, with embroidered patterns reminiscent of Romanian art and architecture on the forefront.
There’s also a tiny dotted ‘i’ at the top and bottom sole of the shoe, wrapping around to connect with another dotted ‘i’ on the heel, a reference to the player’s name.
The shoe also features a small “anyone, anywhere” details that Nike says represents “Ionescu’s unmatched competitive spirit as well as her belief that dreamers can come from anywhere.”
As well as the signature sneakers, the collection features gender-neutral activewear.
This includes t-shirts, shorts, a hoodie and socks, the Nike Unicorn socks made with Dri-FIT ADV.
The new collection has been confirmed to drop this summer on nike.com and nike.com/gb.
