WNBA Sneaker Watch // 2013 All-Star Game

WNBA Sneaker Watch // 2013 All-Star Game

words // Brandon Richard

After a hiatus last season due to the Summer Olympics, the WNBA All-Star Game made its return, played at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut. Many storylines played out through the game, but none more significant that Tina Thompson's impending retirement, the 9-time All-Star hanging her sneakers up for good after the season. With Tina on the way out, the West wanted to send her off in style, and they did just that.

Down 7 heading into the fourth quarter, the Western Conference rallied behind a strong frame from Candace Parker. Parker, playing in her first All-Star Game after missing previous opportunities due to injury, scored a record 23 points and pulled down 11 points to help the West pull off the 102-98 comeback. She was named the game's MVP.

Parker's big game was played in an orange-based colorway of the upcoming adidas adizero Crazy Light 3. The lightest shoe in basketball tips the scale at just 9.4 ounces and features re-engineered SprintWeb construction.

Check out the kicks worn by Parker and her fellow All-Stars in this special edition of WNBA Sneaker Watch.
