Last summer, Nike announced that they would launch the “Greatness Collection” to honor the career of Serena Williams. The collection was a mix of footwear and apparel, with three shoes going on sale in Nike Safari and marble prints: the NikeCourt Flare, NikeCourt Air Max 1 Ultra and the NikeCourt Roshe LD-1000. Williams wore the Flares on the court during the U.S. Open last year. In May, the same shoes were reissued in a unique rose design.
Well, the collection is still going strong, and Nike has included two new designs to the roster. The popular Air Max and Roshe styles are being released on August 25 (sold by select Nike Sportswear retailers and on the Nike SNKRS app) in a pretty chic iridescent finish, shining on a black base. Also featured on the leather shoes is a crinkled material that gives the kicks quite a bit of personality — just like twerk queen Serena. To make the shoes even more personalized, Williams’s logo is included, as well as a message in the sockliner that says “You are strong, powerful, and beautiful.”
Check out a few more images of the new NikeCourt Air Max and Roshe shoes below, customized to fit Williams’s sense of style:
And if shoes aren’t enough, you can get your amateur tennis star on in customized NikeCourt dresses, tanks, jackets, capris and more influenced by Williams’s fashion sense and moves on the court.
