Because JMU was sponsored by Nike, Brooks could see that his star player got essentially any sneaker she wanted, even Jordans, within reason from the team’s equipment budget. Between the Nike Air Max 90 Womens kicks she received from her coach and the ones she bought herself, Young began wearing a different pair on the court almost Adidas NMD Womensevery week. In college, she played in everything from the triple-white Air Max 2 Charles Barkley 94 low tops to the all-black Nike Air Max 270 Mujer Air Jordan 10s, the Nike Air Penny 4s and “Statue” Air Jordan 9s. Her go-tos were the “Grape” Air Jordan 5s and “Linen” Air Jordan 10s, both of which she’s repurchased since getting to the WNBA.The Linens were tough to find since they’ve only dropped once, in 2005. But a few years ago, Young stumbled across them at a sneaker boutique in Atlanta and threw them in the bag — even despite the hefty $400 resale price. “There were several games where I’d go back and watch film. In one half Nike Air Odyssey Femme she’d have on a pair of Jordans. In the second half, she’d have on a different pair of Jordans. I’m like, ‘Why?’ And she’d say, ‘I’m not feeling that vibe … I wanted to go with the other ones,’ ” Brooks says. “She expresses Adidas ZX Flux Womens herself through her shoes, and that was an instrumental part for her to be able to play freely, to play loose, to play as well Nike Air Max 90 Damen Rosa as she did.”

At JMU, Young finished as all-time leading scorer (2,121 points) in both school and conference history. “As we went through Nike Air Max Tavas Damen college and got a little more savvy with our money, her collection grew,” Lawrence says. “And as soon as she went to the WNBA and was making a salary, she went crazy.”Somebody’s salary, for sure,” Young says of her lifetime sneaker tab, shaking her head. “I’ve spent a lot.”If there’s one plot twist to her saga as a sneakerhead, it’s that Young has never Nike Air Max 95 Femme been endorsed by a shoe company. Even despite a decade-plus pro résumé that includes stops with three different Nike Roshe Run Womens WNBA teams in the large markets of Atlanta, Chicago and Vegas. And a crazy collection to back up her expert-level Nike Air Presto Mujer sneaker knowledge — nothing.Teammates and friends with shoe deals give her kicks and grant her access to their brand accounts Nike Air Max 2017 Womens so she can place orders. Hoping to capitalize off her considerable influence, random Instagram followers, especially customizers,Nike Air Max 95 Femme will send free pairs, just for a shoutout. She also has a virtual Rolodex of contacts and specific stores that look out when the time comes Nike Air Huarache Womens for a hot new drop. She’s always looking for that men’s size 9. But more often than not, Young comes out of pocket to feed her passion.“Of course I would love to have a sneaker deal. It would save me money,” says Young, who has Nike Air Max Tavas Mujer around 345,000 followers on Instagram and 14,000 on Twitter. The account for her own lifestyle clothing Adidas NMD Womens brand, Ty1Gear, has 10,000 followers. “

To get free shoes and merchandise from a sneaker company that I could also Adidas NMD Femme promote as well? I’m already doing free branding. When I post a pair of shoes, people want to go get them.”After she was Nike Air Force 1 Damen selected with the eighth overall pick in the 2008 WNBA draft, as the first draft pick in the history of the Atlanta Dream’s franchise, Nike Air Presto Femme Young remembers being sent free shoes from Nike during her first year in the league. She says shipments stopped coming after she fell Nike Internationalist Mujer short of that season’s All-Rookie Team.“There were people drafted after me that got shoe deals. I didn’t understand why I didn’t. Maybe because I came from a mid-major school?” says Young. “Had I come from a bigger school, I’m pretty sure I would’ve had a shoe deal.”
