Candace Parker Signature Shoe

Candace Parker has been making big moves since her WNBA debut. Not only is she currently averaging 17.7 ppg along with 9.2 boards (On July 6th she dropped 31 points 10 rebounds, and 3 blocks on the Phoenix Mercury), but she was selected to the U.S. Women’s Senior National Team and has inked a plethora of endorsement deals. The other “CP3″ will be the new face for Gatorade as well as have her own signature adidas performance shoe.

We got a hold of her new kicks and they’re pretty hot. Draped in the L.A Lakers/Sparks’ purple and yellow colorway the shoe boasts star-like embroidery which goes along with the Lakers/Sparks theme. Adding to the aesthetic appeal is Candace’s nickname “Ace,” which graces the support strap across the front of the sneaker.

Definitely a hot shoe. If she wears them in the Olympics it will be interesting to see what special make-up adidas creates for her.

If you’re a guy, would you ever play ball in a WNBA player’s signature shoe?

    im waitin for the 1st dude at the park wit them on. IM CLOWNIN!

    that’s an interesting thing to think about – will they ever make a WNBA player shoe that a guy could wear without looking like a bitch and being laughed at on and off the court?

    This one looks kind of close, it looks like a Reebok Iverson shoe had sex with a 2000-era Kobe shoe and then Candace made a girly-looking signature on the thing that fell out afterward.

    What I’m really waiting for is some amazon-looking 7ft female-shaq-type WBNA player who comes in and just dominates and looks crazy as hell doing it. like she just runs around blocking everyone’s shots and doing the KG fist pump and yelling obscenities, but on every single play. that will be the first WNBA game I watch in its entirety. and you have to imagine her shoe would look extra manly and badass.

  • Homeless J

    upon closer examination, she also drew what looks to be small flowers all over it.

    I’ll revise my former rumination: Will a WNBA player get a shoe that doesn’t look like a 4th grade girl’s school notebook?

  • Celts Fan “Kobe, Tell me how my ass tastes”

    not bad. I like them for girls kicks.

  • K Dizzle

    I think it’s “sparks” not flowers

  • Luigi

  • LakeShow84

  • Kalan F.

    Those shoes are pretty nice. If they are comfortable, I would wear them.

  • Derice

    No it’s not bad to wear them. I’d wear the fuck outta them. They’re mad nice! Anybody clownin is just insecure to me. Insults and mockery don’t bother me…they’re tight so doesn’t matter if a girl endorses them or not.

  • Smitty313

    Those look like Gilbert Arenas shoe for two years ago.

  • trapstar

    Those are tight.

  • doc

    I like them but I’d wear only if they made different colors.

  • OKC Hicks

    For real, those are nicer than the garbage AI and T-Mac has haha.

  • rob stewart

    I have a good question. Would a guy look crazier playing ball in these or wearing them out with jeans?

  • Kermit the Washington

    what the….you fools are actually considering rocking girls’ kicks? Isn’t that CROSSDRESSING?

    Just cause it’s a sneaker doesn’t change things…it’s still FEMALE CLOTHING, PEOPLE!!

    First fool wearing these gets clowned off the face of the earth.

  • Kermit the Washington

    That’s like Napoleon Dynamite and junk, rocking that Women’s Suit. Oh, this suit is HOT, I don’t care if it’s on a freakin’ chick manequin!

  • LakeShow84

    Well damn i need some clean laker shoes.. Those are sh##in all over kobes’ shoes, Hyper dunks are a step up from garbage but still not clean to me..

  • LakeShow84

    Wait do they at least sell these in the mens dept?? if they do its a done deal!

  • Donald Sterling (Mr.Clipper)

    You think we can get those in Clipper colors?

  • Donald Sterling (Mr.Clipper)

    Has anyone seen Elton? Please give him my number 323-777-MYASS

  • Jason

    Congrat’s to CP3 for getting her own shoe! They look like the high top version of the Gil-Zero 1.

  • http://www.dimemag.com Austin Burton

    Is wearing these any less manly than rocking a pink t-shirt and tight jeans?

  • http://www.dimemag.com Christian Grant-Fields

    Ok Austin! Good Point. Lol

  • Homeless J

    I’m saving my money up for the new John Amaechis.

    they come pre-bedazzled.

    I’m going to rock them on a sunny day so the light catches on the bright pink fake plastic emeralds and blinds my opponents.

  • Kermit the Washington

    Wait…Austin, who are you referring to with the Pink TShirt and tight jeans? Did I miss something, cause that’s not manly either…both will get you clowned off the face of the earth. It’s also not less manly than the new John Amaechis…LOL

  • http://dimemag.com Austin Burton

    I saw plenty of pink shirt/tight jeans combos (or one or the other) in New York. Apparently that’s the style now.

  • K-T

    Secure men have no problems wearing these. A basketball shoe is a shoe. The ladies have been wearing guys signature shoes without freaking out about it, why can’t we? If they come in anything other than Laker/Sparks colors, I’m in.


    No… nah… & no! it’s one thing to give respect to her for for her game. it’s a whole different shot to be rocking her kicks, like some male groupie. that’s a nice look and whatnot for her, but nah.. not for no dude!

  • K-T

    ^^^^what’s weird is that most dudes don’t hestitate to swing from the jocks of male athletes…”like male groupies”…
    I’ll be Candace’s groupie anyday :P

  • candaceparkerlover

    before this even came out i thought that her shoe should be in atleast these three colors!! (basically the colors of the teams she has played on!) atleast red and grey for her high school! and orange and light blue for tennessee and then this shoe is perfect for her sparks!!! and if wanted maybe a red white and blue for her usa team!! id love to rock these kicks!

  • Monkey Nutz

    1 No, wouldn’t wear a chicks kicks.
    2 I wouldn’t ball in adidas anyway.

  • http://dimemas.com CaNdAcE PaRkEr #2

    Dang Candace i always will look up to you in every way i can those shoes are sweet and oyu are the best i want to be like you when i grow up YOU ROCK MY SOCKS CANDACE

  • dc

    women have been wearing mens basketball shoes for ages without necessarily being “groupies”. if the shoe looked good and was comfortable, there was no problem. and we did it without becoming butch (for the most part). at the end of the day, if you have a little “girl” in you, it was there before the shoe came out and wearing them or not wearing them won’t make it go away. if you’re secure in your manhood, wearing a good lookin shoe that’s also comfortable, regardless of who it’s endorsed by won’t matter. “‘bitch’…is it in you?”

  • candacesgirl3

    ya when do they release?i needa know. i want me a pair of them.

  • l

    They look nice to be Addidas shoes because they usually don’t make nice looking basketball shoes. I wonder if they’re light because their shoes are usually heavy. I’ve never worn Addidas but I’m going to check these out. I wonder if they have them in black.

  • l

    There are plenty of girls rockin Jordans with jean skirts. it wouldn’t bother me to see some boys rockin her shoes. I don’t know if they’ll make them in men sizes though.
