share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Serena Williams Design Crew (SWDC) has teamed up with Nike once again to unveil a new "Summit White" pair of Force 1s coming our way following the Queen of Tennis announcing her retirement from the sport.

Their reveal has come shortly after blue versions of the SWDC Air Force 1s were seen earlier this year, with both colourways featuring a unique zip-up lock-in system rather than traditional laces.

Dressed almost entirely in white though, these "Summit White" SWDC shoes more closely resemble the iconic and incredibly popular '07 Air Force 1s first launched, as their name suggests, in 2007.

Serena Williams Design Crew x Nike Air Force 1 Summit White Release Date

Despite some reports announcing their arrival in February, Nike SNKRS has now confirmed that the "Summit White" Air Force 1s are available as of 29 August 2022.

Make sure you act fast to secure your pair as they'll likely sell out fast given the highly popular profile of Serena Williams and the Air Force 1 model.

As their name suggests, the "Summit White" Air Force 1s are made almost entirely from an all-white pebbled leather material that is matched by the classic white sole units.

However, the sneakers include a few unique characteristics that separate them from previous Air Force 1 releases, with the double embroidered Swooshes along the side panels being one of them.

You also get a metallic gold zip where you'd usually find the laces, offering you a more unique lock-in system than what you'd traditionally find on a pair of Nike sneakers.

The golden tone is then continued as you make your way around to the heels as you'll find Serena's signature embroidered in a gold thread at the top of the heel tabs.

As a final nod to Serena's legendary playing career, Nike adds custom woven labels to the tongues that display "10 4 01" and a special message that reads "A collection created to inspire change and move the world."
