Virgil Abloh Gifts His Nike x Serena Williams Sneakers to Industry “QUEENS”

Not everyone has friends that can afford to gift them fresh kicks: unless of course, you happen to be a close friend of Designer Virgil Abloh. According to a new image, the designer is sending out his Nike x Serena Williams “QUEEN” sneakers to some of his nearest and dearest, including Beyoncé Knowles, Michelle Obama, Naomi Campbell, Anna Wintour, and Oprah Winfrey. The “QUEEN” collection, which pays homage to the 39-time Grand Slam winner, feature Abloh’s take on the Nike Mid Blazer and Air Max 97. Both shoes include a pink/purple gradient sole with OFF-WHITE’s signature quotation branding on the side panels. Currently, there is no official release date for the kicks, which means those top-ranked on Abloh’s ‘friends and family’ list will be the first to get their hands on the sneakers.
