Off White and Nike’s newest shoe collaboration has been released, a remix of the iconic Air Max 97. Titled the “Queen” collection, the shoe has been designed for the tennis legend and burgeoning fashion icon, Serena Williams.

Featuring Off White’s signature Helvetica font and bright zip-ties, the shoe is consistent with past collaborations between the two apparel powerhouses. With exclusive color ways like neon yellow/glittery silver and white/rose, the shoes are a statement whether you’re on the court or off.

"With Serena, we have one of our generation's most powerful, inspiring athletes as the muse," said Virgil Abloh, the innovative design force behind the collaboration.. "I was trying to embody her spirit and bring something compelling and fresh to tennis."

Additionally, coinciding with the start of the U.S. Open yesterday in NYC, the collaboration has been officially announced as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the international tennis competition. Reportedly, Williams will be storming the competition while wearing the “Queen” collection, so be sure to get your hands on the shoe before they all sell out.
