Also among Stewart’s favorites is the Nike Kyrie 4 ‘Power is Female’, which she first wore on June 19, 2018, against the Las Vegas Aces. “Those shoes make a powerful statement,” Stewart told Nike.
Finally, the Stewart broke out the Nike KD 11 2018 WNBA All-Star PE during the WNBA All-Star Game. “I loved these because nobody else had them,” Stewart said in a statement. “They’re awesome.”
