Fan Girl Moment: Serena Williams X NIKE
When I got the email from Nike, inviting me to meet my fitness idol; I squealed the gym down at work! From a young age, myself and my sister have loved watching Wimbledon. And we might not quite be the Williams sisters on the court, we sure as hell try our hardest to look as good as them off the court💁🏾.
I headed down to London Bridge, on what felt like the hottest day of the year. In the shadow of the Shard, Tanner Street Park is the perfect location for the Nike Court🎾, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city!
We got changed into some fresh tennis gear, some managed to nab a pair of Serena's (yes, we are on first name terms now) new kicks- NikeCourt Flare, to play in for the day! After a few activities on the pink and blue tennis court, we rested on the bean bags and await the champ herself!
Serena came out and gave a great interview, talking all things techy about the design elements of her new swanky tennis shoe!
She talked us through how she spent hours with the Nike design team mind mapping and planning her new shoes. I would say the key feature being the ankle strap. Especially for a tennis player, so easy to go over on their ankles! It's inspiring to know that some Celebs actually work really hands on with designers - and don't just pop their names on products!
We all headed to the court and got the chance to return Serena's serve, for a fan girl like me... I was so excited! After a few selfies, it was time to head home.
Serena's NikeCourt Flare's are a UK exclusive - available at the King's Road store and online!
Thank you so much to the team at NIKE for the invite and Serena Williams for being an UBER BABE.💕
