In Game 4 against the Liberty, A’ja Wilson scored 24 points, contributed 16 rebounds, a block, and a steal, achieving her sixth double-double of the postseason. With that block, she secured the fourth spot on the WNBA league’s all-time postseason block list.

Nike is building on Wilson’s success by making her the face of the Cosmic Unity sneaker line. She’s been spotted working out in a player-exclusive colorway of the Nike Cosmic Unity 3, inspired by her unique style of play. These shoes provide optimal energy return, pro-level traction, and elite cushioning to help her stay at her best throughout the game.

The sneakers feature a midfoot Flymesh that hugs the midfoot and gives containment and a newly implemented Flyknit collar for plush support, enhancing confidence while reducing the shoe’s weight for improved agility.

Excitingly, the white, orange, and pink sneakers are now available for sale. Fans have the option to buy the Nike Cosmic Unity 3 in the ‘As One We Win’ colorway for $160 in adult sizes through the Nike website.
