With the U.S. Open kicking off today the Nike and Serena Williams collabo is right on time. Together they have produced a dope trio of sneakers in the Greatness Collection. Serena along with Mark Parker designed the set as it commemorates this superior chapter in her tennis career.
Mark definitely speaks on Serena not only as a colleague but as a friend in his aim to capture her in all her domination and essence. The feelings are mutual on Serena’s end as she says, “I love my relationship with [Nike] designers, while also saying that it’s, “unique… being able to develop this wonderful relationship with Marc Parker.”
The designs incorporate Williams personal style and personality. The Greatness Collection features three footwear profiles: “the NikeCourt Flare, NikeCourt Air Max 1 Ultra and NikeCourt Roshe LD-1000. Each shoe features a juxtaposition of Nike Safari and marble prints. The former connects to both Nike DNA and Williams’ penchant for animal prints, while the latter symbolizes her strength.”
