Celebrating Maria Sharapova’s return to play in Paris, NikeLab collaborate with the city’s boutique, colette for a capsule collection.
It’s clear you’re a bonafide icon when you get custom shoes made by one of the biggest brands in the world with your own logo on the back, plus a nod to your five major tennis wins hidden on the insole. Maria Sharapova’s got just that from sportswear giant NikeLab. The sockliner even has her own words printed on as a reminder, “I am not the next anyone, I am the first Maria Sharapova.”
The collection includes the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 and the NikeCourt Tennis Classic in colette’s signature blue. Fancy yourself a respectable amateur? Sharapova wore the Zoom Vapor 9s for her victory last year. Both made from leather and of course using the latest textile technology, you can match your favourite players, even if it’s only for a game on the back lawn, and hope the designs fit for a champion might at least give you a helping hand.
