If you haven't heard of UCONN Women's Basketball, you don't know basketball.  They have won the last four NCAA Women's Championships, and their 4x Most Outstanding Player is Breanna Stewart.  Breanna is a 6'4 forward/center, and her wingspan, at 7'1, is longer than LeBron James.

UCONN is a Nike sponsored school, so Breanna has been sporting the swoosh for the last four years. Here is a look at the sneakers she wore during all four tournaments.

In 2014 Breanna wore the 2013 NIKE HYPERDUNK.  These shoes are Nike's main non-player line.  Al Horford, of the Atlanta Hawks, commonly wears the latest version of these kicks.

The NIKE LEBRON 12 were the shoes Stewart wore during the 2015 Final Four Tournament.  These are from LeBron's main line and were the shoes that came after the famous LeBron 11's, or the shoes LeBron wouldn't play in.  During the 2016 Season, Stewart wore the latest version, the LEBRON 13.

In her final championship, Stewie wore the NIKE KD8 ELITE, Kevin Durant's latest Nike sneaker.  This shoe features an extended sock-like structure and is built with Kevlar.
