With the WNBA Playoffs approaching, Candace Parker's Los Angeles Sparks are peaking at the right time. Winning 7 of their last 10, the Sparks are currently seeded second in the Western Conference and have clinched a postseason berth. Maintaining that home court edge may prove critical to the Sparks' championship hopes, as they've only dropped one game at Staples Center this season. The team's leader in rebounding and blocks per game, Candace has a heavy hand in LA's resurgence, and she's doing her recent work in this Player Exclusive colorway of the adidas adiZero Crazy Light 2.
Best suited for the Sparks' road games, this Crazy Light 2 sports a textured purple SprintWeb upper, backed by a gold SprintFrame chassis and white 3-Stripes wrapped around the heel. Gold also works the adiZero pinline and midsole, while white helps fill in the outsole. Personalizing the shoe is Candace's "Ace3" logo on each tongue.
Read on for a closer look at Candace's "Away" Crazy Light 2 PE.
