Serena Williams recently won Sports Illustrated‘s Sportsperson of the Year award over American Pharaoh. To commemorate this big feat in Serena’s life, Nike decided to create two special version of NikeCourt sneakers. The women’s NikeCourt Air Max 1 Ultra and the NikeCourt Roshe LD-1000.
Both of these special versions of the NikeCourt sneakers will come dressed in a while and silver colorway, where white is used as the base color and silver hits accent the tonal look of the shoe. Both pairs will come with special insoles that read “You are strong beautiful and powerful!” If you’re a big of Serena or simply like the look of the shoe, you can now get the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra for $180 and the Nike Roshe LD-1000 for $160.
Very dope way to commemorate a great Nike athlete on a great accomplishment. The award itself is amazing, but the shoe’s execution I feel could have been better. Can’t have your cake and eat it too, right?
