The 2019 US Open in Flushing Meadows, NY is right around the corner, so NikeCourt has debuted their Fall 2019 apparel collection, inspired by the essence of NYC and featuring a specially-modified version of the Air Jordan 8. Modeled by rising star Sloane Stephens, these volley-ready AJ8s borrow their color scheme from the “White Aqua,” a women’s-exclusive makeup that originally released in 2007 and returned for the first time ever earlier this summer. Although the upper is indeed all classic Air Jordan, the normal basketball-centric midsole and outsole are swapped out for a version that’s derived from the NikeCourt Air Zoom Zero, completing the fusion of hardwood and hard court stylings. The rest of the collection is basketball-themed as well: there’s polos, jackets, and pants, plus a new Flare Knit Low that’ll be worn on court by the legendary Serena Williams. Check out images of the hybrid hoops/tennis shoes right here, and expect the entire collection to hit Nike.com on August 19th.
