Serena Williams, the “Queen” of Nike

Nike is teaming up with tennis champion, Serena Williams and Off-White designer, Virgil Abloh for an exclusive capsule titled the “QUEEN” Collection. Designed by Abloh, the collaboration honors Queen Serena by fusing together the fashion and tennis world. The pack includes two tulle dresses, a bomber jacket, a bag, and two pairs of sneakers.

What’s even better about the collection? It’s reported that the sneaker pack is a women’s exclusive release! We don’t get many DOPE exclusive releases so I’m always excited when we do.

Abloh puts his Off -White stamp on two new colorful iterations of the Nike Air Max 97 and Nike Blazer Mid SW.

The Air Max 97’s upper is made up of a bright pink color, while the Blazer comes in a mix of grey and pure platinum. Each pair comes marked up with the Off-White branding we’ve grown to love, such as the “AIR” labeling on the Air Max 97 or the Blazer’s oversized Nike Swoosh. A gradient-inspired midsole completes each of the new designs.

Official release information has yet to be confirmed, but with the 50th U.S. Open underway, expect the collection to be dropping soon. Stay tuned to New Soles and our Instagram profile for more updates on the “QUEEN” release.
