While A’ja Wilson is dominating the courts in the WNBA, her partnership with Nike is ramping up too, with Nike revealing the new signature logo for the Las Vegas Aces forward on Saturday.

The logo, a stylized “A,” will adorn pieces in Wilson’s signature collection, which is set to drop in 2025. Wilson’s signature shoe will be called the “A’One.”

Wilson announced her signature shoe deal with Nike in May, after much speculation over why the two-time MVP and two-time Defensive Player of the Year didn’t have her own shoe yet. The 27-year-old forward answered the question definitively by posting a picture of her wearing a sweatshirt with the words “Of Course I Have a Shoe Dot Com” — a website that lead directly to Nike’s press release.

Wilson is the fourth active WNBA player to sign a shoe deal with Nike, along with Breanna Stewart, Sabrina Ionescu and Caitlin Clark, who signed a $28 million deal with Nike in April.

With the deal, Wilson is also the first Black woman to get a signature shoe since Candace Parker did it with Adidas in 2010, and the first Black woman to sign a shoe deal with Nike since Sheryl Swoopes in 2002.

Wilson is having another dominant season, and is currently leading the league in points and rebounds with 27.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per game.

The two-time WNBA champion is a huge draw for Aces fans, who have been selling out Las Vegas home games in a record manner all season. The Aces have struggled more than expected, going 8-6 so far this season, but recently bounced back with definitive wins over the Seattle Storm and Connecticut Sun this week.
