NikeCourt and Jordan Brand join hands to celebrate Serena Williams’ unprecedented 23rd major win in the sport of tennis. The Compton, CA native just took down her 23rd win by winning in straight sets at the Australian Open, further quieting the debate as to whether or not Serena Williams is the single greatest tennis player in history. To commemorate this mark, Nike and Jordan will release special footwear – her NikeCourt Flare signature shoe and the Air Jordan 1 Retro; the Flare will come in two colorways (one a tribute to the Banned and the other a representation of her 2016 on-court wear) while the Air Jordan 1 Retro takes on the Banned color-blocking with her personal logo on the tongue.

The Serena Williams x Jordan collection goes on sale today at Nike SoHo. The NikeCourt Flare in both colorways will release on on Nike SNKRS on January 30th; the Air Jordan 1 Retro will release on nike.com also on January 30th.

Update: The Air Jordan 1 SW 23 is available now on Nike.com.
