Amid its resurgence over the past few weeks leading up to the U.S. Open next week, here NikeCourt celebrates Serena Williams with the aptly-named “Greatness” collection. Comprised of three silhouettes and a special-edition bomber jacket, the range was initially ideated in conjunct with none other than Mark Parker himself, with whom Williams retains a close personal working relationship. The bomber jacket sets the tone for the rest of the collection; the NikeCourt Bomber is executed with luxurious white taffeta fabric, bearing a black mesh collar and cuffs alongside a special message from Williams herself at the interior lining.
Elsewhere, the NikeCourt Air Max 1 Ultra, NikeCourt Roshe LD-1000 and NikeCourt Flare – Serena’s signature model – are all done up with a rare custom print that immortalizes Nike’s Safari print in marble. The print, meant to juxtapose Williams’ strength with Nike’s heritage, is carefully applied on a semi-transparent no-sew skin and capped off with a premium leather Swoosh. Pick up these special commemorative items at select NikeLab locations and online beginning August 27.
