Fresh off the heels of their FIFA World Cup win, the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team traded in their cleats for red-carpet worthy footwear. The team was on hand to celebrate at BODY, an ESPN-hosted pre-party for the ESPY Awards, which will be held this evening in Los Angeles.
The awards will honor the best athletes in categories ranging from ‘Best Male Athlete’ and ‘Best Female Athlete’ overall to ‘Best Jockey’ and ‘Best Bowler.’ The U.S. Women’s National Team is nominated for ‘Best Team’ along with the Golden State Warriors, Chicago Blackhawks, New England Patriots, UConn’s women’s basketball team, and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
U.S.W.N.T. captain Abby Wambach, who was part of the team when they won their last World Cup in 1999, wore a black blazer and pants, which she paired with standout Nike ‘Blazer Mid Premium QS’ iridescent sneakers. NBA player Iman Shumpert also jumped on the red carpet sneaker bandwagon, sporting a pair of Adidas Supercolor Superstar sneakers in pale blue.
‘Best Female Athlete’ nominee Lindsay Vonn wore a yellow dress with a thigh-slit, showing off a pair of satin strappy red sandals. Soccer player Becky Sauerbrunn wore Christian Louboutin ‘Nicobar’ sandals – the same style Jennifer Lawrence was seen wearing at Comic-Con in San Diego.
