The Australian Open fashion releases are kicking into higher gear, as right after showing you Maria Sharapova’s Nike dress for the upcoming Grand Slam, I’m learning that these banging shoes that Serena Williams revealed on Instagram yesterday are actually footwear for her title defense in Melbourne.
After her special-edition rhinestone-encrusted Nike sneakers that wowed everyone at her wedding, the tennis legend brings on extraordinary tennis shoes and pairs them with stunning socks whose gold back section perfectly complements and enhances the sparkly kicks. The breathtaking Nike design screams: “Momma’s back!”
What her three-and-a-half-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. thinks of the new design? Let the picture do the talking!
In a way, it’s the baby’s title defense as well, as Serena was pregnant during her run to the 2017 Australian Open champion’s trophy.
As you know, the new mom has officially entered the Australian Open. Tournament director Craig Tiley stated a few days ago:
She’s got her visa, she’s entered, she’s practising. There’s no question she’ll be ready in our view.
I can’t wait to see the dress that will go with these shoes! It can’t possibly be any less spectacular.
