Last Sunday, which was June 11th, was Maya Moore’s 28th birthday. On her birthday, Maya and her fellow star veteran Sylvia Fowles ended up scoring a combined 53 point on behalf of their team, Minnesota Lynx, one of the WNBA’s most experienced teams. Ultimately, the Minnesota Lynx was victorious against the Dallas Wings with a total score of 91-74. Maya Moore already celebrated her birthday by aiding the Minnesota Lynx in defeating the Dallas Wings. However, a week after her birthday, she has also received a belated birthday gift from Jordan Brand in the form of this Air Jordan 31 PE “Red Velvet” featured here.
Maya Moore turned 28 on June 11th. Maya Moore has been a part of the WNBA since 2011 and over the course of time, she has improved tremendously. Maya is a 3-time WNBA champion and a 1-time WNBA MVP. During the recent game, she added 23 points to the Lynx’s final score, which included five three-point field goals. The day after her birthday, Maya also posted a tweet thanking everyone for their “sweet Birthday wishes.” She also expressed her gratitude for having made it to another year as a part of her “Lynx fam.”
Of course, no birthday is complete without gifts and Maya just received a pair of dope kicks as a present from Jordan Brand. This exclusive colorway has likely been dubbed “Red Velvet” because its color scheme resembles that of a red velvet cake. Featuring gradient color blocking, its Flyweave uppers are dressed up in a combination of Burgundy and White. The Burgundy hue is more dominant over the collars and heels while the rest of the uppers are plain White. Both the insoles and the tongue tags also featured Maya’s “MM” branding.
Even though Maya Moore is no stranger to receiving PE kicks, there could be no better gift for a sneakerhead than a fresh pair of cool-looking sneakers like the one featured here. Unfortunately, the Air Jordan 31 PE “Red Velvet” is obviously a one-of-one pair, so it will not be arriving at retailers any time soon.
