Nike Basketball just unveiled Sabrina Ionescu’s first signature basketball shoe, the Nike Sabrina 1.
Inspired by Ionescu’s national heritage, the intricate embroidery patterns on the Sabrina 1 forefoot and eye-stays pay homage to traditional Romanian art and architecture. The shoe’s design is highlighted by a dotted “i” that wraps around the top and bottom outsole of the shoe. The wraparound detail ends in a dotted “i” on the heel — a detail that pays respect to her last name. On the medial side of the shoe, a vertically slanted Swoosh represents the barriers that Ionescu has broken throughout her career, and a hidden “Anyone, Anywhere” quote serves as a reference to Ionescu’s unmatched competitive spirit as well as her belief that dreamers can come from anywhere. One of the first colorways of the Nike Sabrina 1 to release (shown) comes dressed in a Photon Dust, Anthracite, Fuchsia Dream, Light Smoke Grey, and Light Bone color combination.
“Ionescu is the first women’s basketball player to deliver a unisex signature collection with NIKE, Inc.,” said Kerry Sobol, VP Global Women’s Team and Organized Sports. “We are thrilled she will lead the charge with us and continue to change the scope of the game for future generations.”
You can expect the Nike Sabrina 1 ‘Photon Dust’ to release at select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike.com during Summer 2023. The retail price is $125. Once we have more information, we will make sure to update you.
