This Air Jordan 1 features a Pink, Black and White color combination, but there is more to the shoes then the shades used. Across the uppers we have leather while Pink lands across the Nike Swoosh, around the heel, collar and across the tongue. Serena Williams’ logo is then seen on the heel and replacing the Jumpman or Nike Air on the tongue. Black is placed on the panels, Wings branding, tongue and laces while White fills in the midsole. Completing the look is Pink on the outsole.
In celebration of Williams’ history-making 23rd major title, NikeCourt and Jordan Brand present two color versions of the exclusive women’s NikeCourt Flare.
Both inspired by the color blocking Air Jordan 1, one pays homage to the original ‘Banned’ Air Jordan 1 colors, while the second (a black and pink version) takes cues from Serena’s 2016 on-court attire in NYC. Both versions are adorned with the iconic Air Jordan Wings logo on the collar.
Additionally, the celebratory pack includes the AJ1 SW collaboration, complete with Serena’s personal logo on the tongue and heel.
The Air Jordan 1 is Williams’ favorite sneaker. Since 2004, the year she first signed with Nike, Serena has been lacing up the same beloved style for press conferences, celebratory galas, appearances and trips to training sessions. No matter the season, and no matter the latest record or ever-growing win total, her attachment to Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe remains a constant.Nike, Serena has been lacing up the same beloved style for press conferences, celebratory galas, appearances and trips to training sessions.

The NikeCourt x Jordan Brand commemorative box is adorned with Jordan’s iconic Jumpman on the left lid and Williams’ “SW” logo on the right. Beneath each lies graphics which underscore the two champions’ shared athletic achievement. Under the Jumpman lies the number ’23,’ the symbolic tie between MJ and Serena. Additionally, six words (one for each of MJ’s championships) — creative, determined, innovative, classic, performance and stylish — appear as reminder of both athletes’ winning mindset. Beneath Williams’ logo is a flowing pattern highlighting her career. It is intentionally unfinished, allowing for Serena’s drive for continued success.
