Editor’s Notes: The OFF-WHITE x Nike Blazer Mid with a pink gradient sole was unveiled last Fall as part of Serena Williams’ Virgil Abloh-designed “QUEEN” collection. Whereas the sneaker was initially released through OFF-WHITE flagship stores worldwide, Nike has now announced the highly-popular sneaker will drop through its SNEAKRS app in Europe on February 9.
This Blazer Mid design is considered to be one of Abloh’s most daring colorways on a Nike sneaker yet, mainly owing 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.
Abloh and the Swoosh previously 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.
