While Serena Williams continues to revel in her coveted Sports Illustrated 'Sportsperson Of The Year' honor, the champ continues to laugh off those haters with a little help from Nike as they unveil yet another footwear collection celebrating the queen of court.
For the second time this year, NikeCourt (a tennis-focused peripheral of NikeLab) delivers an ode to Serena this time in the form of a revised Nike Air Max 1 Ultra and Nike Roshe-LD 1000 silhouettes with premium rework. Both sneaks get the revamp in PRM white leather and a distinctive mesh toe cap (complete with an abstract perforated design). Metallic silver rounds off the look, adding a more contemporary vibe to the two piece.
To complete the line (and earn a nod for some pretty well-placed #Chickspiration) Nike added a personalized dose of inspiration straight from Serena to us (at least that's what we're telling ourselves...) with the words "You are strong, powerful, and beautiful!" handwritten on the inserts.
Yea...I'm gonna need those Air Maxes.
If you're thinking the same, both models are now available via Nikecourt online (along with a snazzy, but pricey, black NikeCourt Bomber jacket). The Nike x Serena Air Max 1 Ultra 'Greatness' retails for $180 USD while the Roshe-LD 1000 can be yours for a cool $160 USD.
