Want to be like Serena Williams or Novak Djokovic?
While you might not have a Grand Slam-level tennis game, you can at least wear the shoes these top players trust on the court. Among Nike’s top tennis athletes are Williams, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. For the 2017 Australian Open, players are wearing the NikeCourt Melbourne Unmatched collection, inspired by Australia’s hot weather.
Williams is once again wearing the NikeCourt Flare sneaker, which features a supportive ankle cuff, this time in an black version with small white accents. For her 2017 debut earlier this month, Williams wore the same model in a bright orange hue. Federer is wearing the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor 9.5 Flyknit, and Nadal is in the NikeCourt Lunar Ballistec 1.5, both of which are done in bright orange with green accents.
