Sabrina Ionescu‘s debut signature model, the Nike Sabrina 1, has been an instant hit. With a new year fast approaching, the low-top performance sneaker continues to appear in new colorways, suggesting Ionescu and the Swoosh will continue to dominate the market with their first collaboration.
Similar to previous iterations of basketball shoes, a newly unveiled pair showcases a subtle grayscale design. The upper is constructed with various shades of grey, allowing for even the most minimal contrasts to stand out. Amongst the dark surroundings, the profile swooshes and tongue branding provide a slight interruption, but they are overshadowed by the faint green hue at the spine. The majority of the sole unit also embraces the muted mint color, while the forefoot and outsole opt for an off white shade.
Although the brand has not yet disclosed the full backstory of the Sabrina 1 model, a glimpse at the sockliners reveals that it is a form of celebration. The insoles feature the words "Welcome Sabrina", replacing the traditional "S" branding found on Ionescu's previous sneakers. This bubble lettered-text could be a message from Nike, the New York Liberty guard's personal thoughts, or a reference to something significant shared with her upon entering the professional basketball world.
Be sure to delight in the official photographs showcasing the pair in advance, and eagerly await the upcoming release on nike.com in the spring of 2024.
