Serena Williams recently announced that her tennis career is winding down to a close. Arguably the most legendary women’s tennis player to ever touch the court confirmed that she will be hanging it up after the U.S Open, and to celebrate her remaining days as a professional athlete, Nike is expanding her footwear line with a brand new Air Force 1 LXX Zip “Lapis” colorway that has just been officially revealed. This iteration serves as a follow-up to her “Summit White” variation that released earlier in 2022.

Premium leather is still called upon to form its upper build, but unlike the first release, this forthcoming installment is debossed with tonal floral patterns that wrap around the side panels, heels and the throat. Double-stacked embroidered Swooshes are kept consistent, and the zippers provide extra contrast thanks to their luxe golden finishes. Tongues are designed with tabs that feature SWDC’s signature “10 4 01” logo while the heels trade out the usual Nike branding for her signature. Additionally, the insoles have been decorated with all-over floral graphics.

Check out the upcoming collaboration right here and be on the lookout for these to launch in the coming weeks.

Elsewhere in sneakers, a new Dunk High colorway inspired by AMBUSH’s “Deep Royal Blue” iteration has surfaced.
