Following a summer in which she led her team in China to a championship while averaging 41 points and 10 rebounds per game, Maya Moore returns to the Minnesota Lynx for her third WNBA season. She wears the number 23, is now 23 years old and as a member of Team Jordan, it's fitting that she begins the season in a Player Exclusive colorway of the Air Jordan XX3.
The white-based shoe features royal accents to set the tone for Minnesota's home opener. Atomic teal on the lining and sole give the shoe a more feminine look. Paying tribute to Maya's international championship achievements are hits of metallic gold on the tongue, lace loops, toebox and stitching.
Maya has also been treated to six Jordan Aero Mania PEs, three each for home and away games. All versions display "MAYA" on the tongue and speckled midsoles.
Look for something special on the court tonight at 8:00 p.m. when the Lynx host the visiting Connecticut Sun.
