Serena Williams Gets Her Own Nike Sneaker for French Open (PHOTOS)

Nike is honoring Serena Williams’ appearance in this year’s French Open by releasing a limited edition Blazer. The company is celebrating the 23-time Grand Slam champion’s return to the clay court for the first time since winning the Australian Open while pregnant in 2017.

The footwear manufacturing company has created an SW-branded version of its classic Blazer Mid silhouette. The shoe is highlighted by its monochromatic white leather look with textured accents and Williams’ logo equipped on the tongue tag and laces. The pair of sneakers is nicknamed the “Open Book” paying tribute to dominant athletes who have rewritten history and redefined what it means to be an athlete according to Sneaker News.

Williams’ Nike Blazer will retail for $120 and can be purchased on May 24 at a pop-up shop in Paris, at select retailers in Europe and North America and through the company’s SNKRS app.
