Serena Williams Collaborates with Nike to Create ‘Greatness’

So, back when Serena was slaying courts left and right earlier this summer, a few of us jumped on twitter to talk about Serena’s shoe.

Namely, the fact that… there wasn’t one.

Until now.

Designed with Serena’s funky style in mind, we bring you…

The NikeCourt Air Max 1 Ultra Women’s Shoe updates the iconic shoe with marble and Nike safari prints on no-sew overlays for a premium look and feel.

About the Collection

NikeCourt presents a collection that celebrates the latest chapter of a phenomenal tennis career. Footwear and apparel with bold prints, luxurious materials and finessed details embody the strength, power and beauty of a tennis icon—on and off the court.

As well as this off-court Air Max 1 Ultra for style, the collection also contains an off-court casual Roshe LD:

…and Serena’s signature on-court shoe, the NikeCourt Flare:

Nike also will be rolling out two dresses and a white bomber jacket, gear that showcases Serena’s on-court style and fashion sense:

When asked about the idea to title the line “Greatness,” Serena responded,

“They decided to call it Greatness and I was like, okay cool I love that

[…] When you think of greatness, you think of someone that’s great, but also a great person has to be positive and influence other people to be great,” she told Yahoo Style. “That’s what it’s all about — you can be powerful, strong, and beautiful all at the same time. It’s for everyone.” [source]

That message is reinforced inside of each product, where you’ll see positive messages like the following:

Here. Please. Take my money.

All of it.

Check out the line here, and let me know: will you be buying a piece of Greatness this fall?
