On her feet, the Nike athlete continued her list of styles from the brand in a tri-tone pair of tennis shoes. The mixed pale pink, plum purple and fire red pair came set atop a contrasting white midsole with a securing ankle strap placed over medicinal wrap as well. Though the pair is unique to Williams, the silhouette bears resemblance to the brand’s NikeCourt Flare 2 pair, the athletic powerhouse’s only female-specific design. The shoes take inspiration from Serena Williams herself with its soft foam midsole and molded rubber dot on the midsole for durability.

Watch on FN

You can find the NikeCourt Flare 2 for $110 on the brand’s website.

Williams has been a Nike athlete since 2003 and has released a number of collaborative projects with the brand over the years. In 2019, the two powerhouses announced that they were looking for emerging designers to help create a Williams-inspired shoe and apparel collection for 2020. She also created her own namesake apparel and accessories brand in 2018 and has since debuted capsules during New York Fashion Week.

In May as well, Williams signed on as the newest global spokeswoman for Stuart Weitzman, starring in the brand’s 2020 ad campaign. The photos show the tennis powerhouse wearing a high-fashion version of her signature tennis whites (a sleek trench coat and bodysuit, plus a blazer and briefs) and standing atop a series of pillars in a variety of shoes from the brand.
