Here's the release from the Jordan Brand about former UConn Huskies and current Minnesota Lynx star Maya Moore about her personal edition Air Jordan XX3.
The number 23 is synonymous with the Jordan Brand thanks to MJ, but today, 23 belongs to Maya Moore. After a summer that yielded a championship in China while averaging over 41 points and ten boards per game, Moore returns home for her third season in Minnesota. She wears the number 23, is now 23 years old, and as a member of Team Jordan (23), it’s only right that she hits the court in player exclusive Air Jordan XX3s to start the season.
On top of a white base, Varsity Royal sets the tone for Minnesota’s home opener. Atomic Teal pops on the sole and liner give these XX3s a more feminine look. Up close are hits of Metallic Gold on the tongue, lace loops, toebox and stitching – all paying tribute to Moore's international championship achievements.
Moore also has the option to wear PE versions of the Jordan Aero Manias throughout the season. Three home and three away versions all display "MAYA" stitched on the tongue. A speckled midsole adds a new variation to the these lightweight, responsive kicks. The Jordan Aero Mania features next-generation Flywire for lightweight support and durable leather for a premium fit. A Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot delivers a cushioned ride.
One of the most decorated athletes in the history of collegiate sports, Moore became the first female basketball player to join the Jordan Brand in 2011.
