As adidas continues to double down on supporting women in basketball—recently adding number 1 overall WNBA draft pick Aliyah Boston to their roster—the brand hasn't forgotten about the legends who paved the way. Candace Parker, one of the stalwarts of adidas Basketball's women's line and one of the few women in history to have a signature sneaker, is returning with a fresh colorway for her PE line on the Exhibit Select Mid model. Titled "Queen of Cards," this shoe pays homage to Parker’s “Ace” nickname.
The adidas Exhibit Select Mid Candace Parker PE "Queen of Cards" arrives with a dazzling silver metallic finish on the upper, adorned with a graphic of the ace of spades card. Vibrant red accents contrast on the lace set and pull tabs, while solid black hues lend a grounded feel to the sockliner and collar. As a personal touch, Candace's "Ace" nickname is elegantly scripted along the midfoot nylon strap. Comfort isn’t sacrificed for style: underfoot, the shoe features a multi-toned Bounce-cushioned midsole in red, grey, and black. This sits atop a sturdy black and red rubber outsole, ensuring durability and traction on the court.
The adidas Exhibit Select Mid Candace Parker PE Queen of Cards W will release September 1, 2023, through adidas and select retailers online and in-store. Available in women's sizing, the retail price is set at $130.
