As Serena Williams prepares for the US Open — representing the final leg of Serena’s historic quest for a Grand Slam — Nike celebrates arguably the most dominant female athlete in the modern era. NikeCourt’s “Greatness Collection” was initiated by Nike CEO Mark Parker himself, who guided the design team to create pieces that accurately captured the tennis icon’s personality. On the footwear side, there’s the NikeCourt Air Max 1 Ultra and NikeCourt Roshe LD-1000 and NikeCourt Flare (which will be worn by Williams on the courts in Flushing), all finished in a black and white color palette embellished with a blend of Nike Safari and marble prints. They’re joined by a NikeCourt Bomber Jacket constructed from taffeta in a matching color scheme. The Greatness Collection will be available tomorrow, August 27th, at select NikeLab stores and online.
