Nike Basketball has officially unveiled Ionescu’s first signature basketball shoe, the Nike Sabrina 1, designed for players who are looking to accelerate and cut quickly on both ends of the court.
Inspired by Ionescu’s Romanian heritage, the Nike Sabrina 1 features a special pattern on the forefoot and eyestays paying homage to traditional Romanian art and architecture. It comes equipped with full-length Nike React cushioning combined with Zoom Air unit in the forefoot. A bold message of “Anyone, Anywhere” is embedded into midsole as reference to Ionescu’s unmatched competitive spirit as well as her belief that dreamers can come from anywhere. The shoe also includes a midfoot band system with lockdown cables to help keep the foot secured. This offering of the Sabrina 1 arrives in a Photon Dust, Anthracite, Fuchsia Dream, Light Smoke Grey, and Light Bone color scheme.
“Ionescu is the first women’s basketball player to deliver a unisex signature collection with Nike” Kerry Sobol, Nike’s VP of global women’s team and organized sports, said. “We are thrilled she will lead the charge with us and continue to change the scope of the game for future generations.
