The Swoosh has announced a striking all-white Nike Blazer Mid to honor Serena Williams’ return to slam competition since her maternity leave.
Arguably the greatest tennis player ever, Serena Williams will be competing in the French Open (Qualifiers begin today, and the draw will be made Thursday). For the occasion, Nike has created a luxurious premium leather Blazer Mid with thick laces that sport Williams’ SW logo. Textured accents add depth to this otherwise minimalist sneaker.
According to Nike, limited quanities of the Nike Blazer Mid SW will be available beginning May 24 in Europe at a special pop-up store in Paris and at select retailers. The shoe will be available in the States via Nike SNKRS. The shoe will retail for $120.
