Tennis champion Serena Williams is giving fans and sneaker fiends the opportunity to walk/run a day in her shoes.
The woman on top of the sports world is collaborating with her longtime footwear endorser, Nike, and releasing a signature shoe collection aptly titled The Greatness Collection.
A few days ago, she teased the launch via her Instagram.

And now more details have emerged. The collection will include three pairs of kicks: Nike Air Max 1 Ultra, Nike Roshe LD-1000, and NikeCourt Flare, all sporting her favorite affirmation, “You are strong, powerful, and…beautiful!” Paired with a coral and black snakeskin printed tennis dress, Williams was expected to debut a pair of her sneakers during last night’s Round 1 match which was suspended early due to an injury suffered by opponent Vitalia Diatchenko.
And as Serena advances at the US Open, be sure to keep your eyes open for a fresh look at the whole collection of black and white marbleized and leopard print sneaker designs, tennis dresses, and bomber jacket.
The sneakers hit stores and the web on Thursday, September 3. Will you cop a pair?
