Diana Taurasi is currently in her 14th year in the WNBA, she’s the league’s all-time leading scorer as well as the first WNBA player to hit 1,000 three-pointers. She’s essentially the living GOAT of the league, very similar to that guy LeBron James over in the NBA.
What else do they have in common? Taurasi has worn one sneaker for most of her career and it’s been LeBron James’ signature shoe. She’s been mostly wearing the LeBron 10s for her career but like all sneaker heads, she’s fallen in love with the LeBron 15s. She told WNBA.com, “I think these by far have eclipsed comfort level of any basketball shoe I’ve ever worn.”
The LeBron 15s are his fifteenth signature shoe, and for the first time use the Flyknit technology, which has made them one of the most popular basketball shoes out there. Not only for their fit, but for how great they look.
Not to mention, LeBron went on a #LeBronWatch campaign, bringing out ridiculous colorways ranging from nods to Ken Griffey Jr., the Nike shoebox, and Vince Carter’s Shox.
Now, Taurasi is leading the charge this summer with the best collection of LeBron 15 colorways we’ve seen from anyone besides The King himself. When Taurasi was asked how she got so many great colorways, she told WNBA.com that, “My boy Bronny sent them over. I’ve been a die-hard LeBron sneaker head for a long time.”
GOATs recognize GOATs.
