NikeCourt Unveils Serena Williams’ Sneakers for Roland-Garros

Serena Williams has a rosy outlook for the 2016 French Open.

When the No. 1-ranked tennis star hits the court at Roland-Garros on Tuesday, she’ll be wearing a special pair of her signature NikeCourt Flare sneakers, decorated with a rose print.

In contrast to some of the neon-colored kicks Williams has been wearing on the circuit this season, the Roland-Garros sneakers come in a rich navy color, with a lighter blue ankle cuff and laces. The Swoosh symbol and back tab are decorated with a red, pink and blue floral pattern inspired by Williams’ personal love of roses.

The shoe is available now on Nike.com for $200. It is the latest release in NikeCourt’s ongoing “Greatness Collection” that celebrates Williams and her many athletic achievements.

In addition to the new Flare style, the brand also created special rose-embroidered versions of the NikeCourt Air Max 1 Ultra and the NikeCourt Roshe LD-1000, which have already sold out on the brand’s website.

Williams was originally scheduled to compete at Roland-Garros on Sunday, but play was canceled due to rain in Paris. So she’s set to face off against Slovakian player Magdalena Rybarikova on Tuesday night on the Philippe-Chatrier Court.
