Last name: Ever, first name: Greatest.

Serena Williams has won her 23rd Grand Slam, thus surpassing the trmendous mark set by Steffi Graf and landing herself in that elite 23 club.

In celebration of Williams' history-making 23rd major title, NikeCourt and Jordan Brand team up to present two color versions of the exclusive women's NikeCourt Flare. Both inspired by the colorblocking Air Jordan 1, one pays homage to the original 'Banned' Air Jordan 1, while the second (a black and pink version) takes it's cues from Serena’s 2016 on-court attire in NYC. Both versions are adorned with the iconic Air Jordan Wings logo on the collar.

Additionally, the celebratory pack includes the AJ1 SW collaboration, complete with Serena’s personal logo on the tongue and heel.

According to a Nike press release,

The Air Jordan I is Williams’ favorite sneaker. Since 2004, the year she first signed with Nike, Serena has been lacing up the same beloved style for press conferences, celebratory galas, appearances and trips to training sessions. No matter the season, and no matter the latest record or ever-growing win total, her attachment to Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe remains a constant.

Fittingly, Serena now gets her own Jordan 1 complete in her favorite colors: pink and black. Take a look below at the intricate boxing that houses this special collection.

The SW x Air Jordan footwear collection launches today (January 28) at Nike Soho. Both colorways of the women’s NikeCourt Flare AJ1 release January 30 on SNKRS in the U.S., Western Europe and Japan. The Girls’ Air Jordan 1 Retro High SW is available January 30 from nike.com in the U.S. only.
