Nike Air Deldon 1
Meet the Nike Air Deldon "Lyme," the new shoe from WNBA star Elena Delle Donne. Channel the best of Elena's versatile game with a basketball shoe designed to keep up with the 2-time MVP. Reflecting her battle with Lyme disease, the lime-green accents represent the drive to continue to fight, even when you feel like you've got nothing left.
FlyEase for All
The Nike Air Deldon is our most inclusive basketball shoe ever. Inspired by Elena’s disabled older sister, Lizzie, the innovative Nike FlyEase design has a collapsible heel and an upper that opens wide for easy entry. Step in, press the FlyEase strap to secure and go. Elena says of the design, “The technology is really cool. It creates so much room for someone with special needs.”
Go the Distance
A full-length Nike Air unit is stitched to the upper to help reduce layers and overall weight while bringing the cushioning right up under your foot. There's also a forefoot Zoom Air unit that returns energy with every step. That spring and speed is enveloped in a soft injected foam for complete stability that can help you play at a high level for longer.
Join Elena's Fight
Elena Delle Donne is known for the fight she brings to every game, but her biggest battle has often been invisible. Bold and bright, this stand-out lime green edition brings awareness to the Lyme disease Elena has battled throughout her career. The Nike Air Deldon "Lyme" steps up awareness on and off the court, showing other athletes with chronic disease what’s possible.
Play All 5 Positions
With the size and strength of a center and the agility and skills of a guard, Elena needs a shoe that can keep up. Lightweight, responsive foam combined with a Zoom Strobel underfoot give you the responsiveness to space the floor, run and finish at the rim. Plus, a zoned traction pattern helps you nail every move in any direction.
Pivot, Jab and Cut
The outsole pattern uses contoured lines that bend and deflect in multiple directions to help you gain traction and always feel connected to the court.
Foam insole adds cushioning.
Elena's logo is molded into the exposed foam on the bottom and on the strap.
