Candace Parker Drops Second Signature adidas Collection Part II "Play Your Ace"
And it's fire
The adidas Candace Parker Collection Part II “Play Your Ace” is officially available to cop today. The collection aims to empower and elevate the future of women in sport, with Part II specifically being comprised of court-worthy footwear complemented by pre-and-post-game apparel available in inclusive sizing designed to elevate your Ace.
The shoes in question are below.
Rooted in a shared commitment to empower aspiring women athletes and hoopers who like Parker herself set out to create their own legacy. This encore collection is the embodiment of Parker’s evolution on-and-off the court, melding Ace’s style and performance insights for the next-generation player.
Here’s what Parker had to say about numero dos. As always, the major influence was her daughter Lailaa.
"I’m thrilled to announce my second collection with adidas," said Parker. "Women and girls need more athletes who look, work, think, dream and play like them now more than ever.
Our hope is to empower the future of women in basketball and inspire every young hooper to create their own legacy. Part II is influenced by my personal journey and dedicated to the people who have been there every step of the way, especially my daughter Lailaa."
Here’s what all is included in Part II. The collection launches with the all-new Exhibit B, arriving in three custom colorways. Lightstrike cushioning and dynamic handling are the standout features with each iteration being inspired by her personal journey beginning with the “For Lailaa Nicole,” which feature emerald green and silver accents.
As for Parker, it’s not about “wearing the crown,” but about “sharing it” resulting in “Game Royalty”, a purple and gold colorway representing African queens. There’s also a “Windy City” colorway signifying the hometown hero’s 2022 league title, and the remainder of the collection is rounded out by three unique Exhibit B “Elevated Team” colorways emphasizing the magic of teamwork.
The Candace Parker Collection Part II is an elevation for the new generation of athletes completed with a vibrant combination of pre to post-game apparel offerings including signature Ace sweatsuits, cropped jackets, and hoodies, all paired with an assortment of tees and shorts that harken back to pivotal moments in Parker’s iconic career.
Inclusive sizing also makes a return, allowing Parker’s vision for expanded access to female and non-binary athletes who’ve traditionally had to size down to access men’s basketball apparel and footwear.
The Candace Parker Collection Part II will be available for purchase today, August 1st, in stores and online at both adidas and DICK’S Sporting Goods. Prices range from $35-$120 USD.
