Venus Williams New Endorsement Partnership

08/23/2007

Two-time U.S. Open champion Venus Williams will step into a new endorsement partnership today in Manhattan. The reigning Wimbledon winner will unveil her new collection of Steve & Barry's high performance and casual apparel, footwear and accessories at a Manhattan press conference.


Designed by Venus, the collection includes the clothes and shoes she will wear during next week's U.S. Open. In keeping with the Steve & Barry's mission, every item — including the high performance on-court gear — will be under $20. Williams formerly wore Reebok shoes and clothes.

New York Knicks guard Stephon Marbury currently partners with Steve & Barry's on his "Starbury" basketball shoes

The surprise. Thank God. I was so sick of Reebok on her! Anything will be better.

Thanks for the news!

Re: Venus Williams New Endorsement Partnership

Interesting can't wait to see her on opening day.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Wow... just wow.

I've bought a pair of Starbury's. They're like slippers there's so little padding. I hope Venus's kicks are of better quality

Re: Venus Williams New Endorsement Partnership

wait so she's with steve and barry's? whoaaa...i'm a little discouraged, didn't an article pop up saying she was wearing RBK with a new design. I can't believe she wouldn't sign with Nike, Addidas or anything else. Steve and barry's? Oh crap, now i'm nervous...for how she'll look.

Venus Williams. Serena Williams.

Re: Venus Williams New Endorsement Partnership

Interesting I hope the quality of Vee's stuff is good, because yeah, some of S&B's workmanship is a little

But I mean COME ON GUYS this is Venus we're talking about, so I know they'll take care of her

Finally good to see some new clothes on her though

I was just there a couple of weeks ago, and SJP has a line of jeans for girls there, so they're definitely raising their fashion profile.

I hope their line of sportswear is good enough for the Venus name, but like I said, I'm sure it will be

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

It's real. Go to google news and type "Venus + Steve and Barry's." You can even see some of her designs.

Re: Venus Williams New Endorsement Partnership

First reaction: OMG everythings like under $20?! It's gonna look like crap!
Secondary reaction: Oh well, I guess it'll be great to see her in something different and a line she's designed exclusively. Had a look on the website and it seems SJP has a line too so it MUST be good.

I'm gonna guess there won't be any Swarovski crystals on Vee's outfit..lol

I was practicing with Venus in Florida, and she was just killing me. I'm kind of glad she didn't make it, for my sake (laughter). You can't sleep on her because she's playing unbelievable. I got to take my chance now while she's out because when she's coming back, she's really playing like she's playing with no fear and she's practicing really hard. Yeah, she's playing unbelievable. > Serena Williams AO '07

Re: Venus Williams New Endorsement Partnership

I think it's a good thing. Venus and Serena have brought tennis to the underprivileged, why can't Venus bring them tennis fashion too?

I like that she's doing this. I know some people will rip her for it, but I think it's great. All that and it looks like she has creative freedom over what she wears.
