NikeCourt Debuts An Air Jordan 8 Tennis Shoe For Upcoming US Open

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.
