WNBA Sneaker Watch: 2011 WNBA All-Star Game

words // Brandon Richard

Today, the WNBA held their twelfth All-Star Game, this year's contest taking place in San Antonio for the first time in league history. The Western All-Stars were led by veteran Swin Cash, who topped all scorers with 21 points and rebounders with 12. Swin's big game was trumped by a well-balanced Eastern Conference group, spearheaded by New York Liberty guard Cappie Pondexter's 17-point, 7-assist night. Cash took home her second career WNBA All-Star MVP, but it was the Eastern Conference who pulled away at the end to come away with the 118-113 win.

The most impressive element of the game may have been the footwear. Matching the black and orange game uniforms were flurry of Player Exclusives, mainly from the Nike camp. Read on for a look at all of the 2011 WNBA All-Star Game sneakers.
