The NikeCourt Flare, the latest shoe that tennis superstar Serena Williams is playing in, draws on the design langue of the Nike Kobe line, so it's not that surprising to see it borrow a colorway from said line here.

The shoe looks rather like the "Bruce Lee" Kobes, although it would fit the bill better were its obsidian sections switched out for black. When Nike introduced this shoe it mentioned the model being inspired by kung fu, which makes an underlying Lee connection all the more likely.

This NikeCourt Flare style is available now directly from Nike.
