Editor’s Notes: The OFF-WHITE x Nike Blazer Mid with a pink gradient sole was unveiled earlier this Fall as part of Serena Williams’ Virgil Abloh-designed “QUEEN” collection. Now OFF-WHITE’s official Instagram account has confirmed it will be seeing a wider release at select flagship stores worldwide.

This Blazer Mid design had been leaked previously and was considered to be Abloh’s most daring colorway yet, mainly owed to its eye-catching midsole. Canadian retailer SSENSE dropped the Blazer Mid on October 25. No other retailer has announced a release date or availability at time of writing.

Earlier, Abloh and the Swoosh announced that the sneaker would be part of Williams’ “QUEEN” collection, comprising three sneakers alongside tennis apparel. The other sneakers in the pack are the similarly colored Nike Air Max 97 and the Williams “Queen” NikeCourt Flare 2 PE.

The Nike Air Max 97 from the pack surprise-released during Williams’ first-round match at the US Tennis Open in late August. Whether there will be a wider release of the 97 is currently unknown.
