Hudson is known to have an appreciation for designer sneakers and basketball, making this shoe, designed by a former WNBA player, a perfect fit for her wardrobe. She was seen this week coordinating the red laces of her Gucci boots with her son’s Air Jordans at a Lakers game.

About the Shoes

Woollier The Dreamer sneakers.
Woollier’s The Dreamer sneakers.

The Woollier The Dreamer sneakers are part of Woollier’s Concrete Jungle capsule, a collaboration between the shoe designer and former WNBA star Ty Young. The sneakers add three new color blocks in black, white or lavender with a leopard print stripe across the shoe’s body to Woollier’s iconic The Dreamer silhouette. Each pair comes with a commemorative insert hand-signed by Young.

The Concrete Jungle capsule collection speaks to Young’s interpretation of The Dreamer and was inspired by following her dreams in a big city and overcoming obstacles put in her path. The shoes are handmade in Italy and retail for $395.
