Henna designs women’s shoes for basketball players
Posted On July 29, 2021
The NBA’s Henna Design and Performance brand unveiled its latest women’s shoe, a collaboration with Nike, to be unveiled at the New York City Marathon on Sunday.
The shoes, called Henna Designs Women’s Run and Walk Shoes, feature a streamlined silhouette inspired by the classic women’s run shoe, and feature a Nike Zoom Air technology that allows the heel to remain raised during running.
The shoes also have a sleek design with a black and white print, and a metallic color.
Henna’s new women’s footwear is the first time a shoe with a Nike Air technology has appeared on the shoe market.
The shoe was first shown at the Nike Basketball New York event in September, where Henna co-founder Nellie McEntee was seen running in it during a presentation.
Henna’s other new products include the Nike Dunk Low and Dunk High sneakers, which feature a mesh upper.
The Dunk High and Dunk Low shoes were released in November, while the Dunk Low is still in production.
The Nike Zoom air technology, which is a technology that uses high-energy air pressure to propel athletes up the court, allows the heels to stay raised during a running event.
It also helps improve the aerodynamics of the shoe, which has been described as a “classic shoe.”
The Nike Dunk High, Dunk Low, Dunk Runner and Dunk Runner Runner have been available in three colorways: a black/white and a gold/silver colorway.
They will be available on Sunday at Nike’s stores, Nike.com and the Nike Store.
