The Emperess' New Shoes

A lot of us have noticed that Venus has been wearing Nike shoes since the US Open. Now the Nike Breathe 2K10 is listed as her official shoe. Did she sign a secret deal? Any have any details?

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

I hope this doesn't mean Venus is playing barefoot.

Re: The Emperess' New Shoes

Venus has always been playing with Nike shoes, just at selected events (wimbledon sometimes, rg sometimes) etc...

I guess she uses Nike for court where her feet need extra comfort and protection, cause I doubt a $15-$50 eleven shoe is healthy.

Re: The Emperess' New Shoes

If she is using Nike shoes for Wimbledon/RG then obv.ly cause she needs a different kind of shoe for these surfaces. Esp.ly Wimbledon. The sole of the shoe differs depending on which surface you play on.

And empress = JJ.

It is quite possible, she and Nike worked out a shoes deal. I know Venus enjoys doing her own dresses but there isn't much you can do with sneakers anyway so why not.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. MLK

Re: The Emperess' New Shoes

Seriously, I thought this was about Jeja's shoes. Isn't Venus the queen? I know "The Empress" is better but that title's already taken. Sorry.

Also, if this was actually about Empress' shoes then I'd understand why it was posted in GM, but the queen's shoes should be discussed in her own forum.

Re: The Emperess' New Shoes

Re: The Emperess' New Shoes

I've never heard anyone call Jelena Empress before? Who does apart from her fans...I mean what is she Empress of? The Empire of Pushers?

Venus and Serena are both tennis-goddesses, but the greater can include the lesser so I think Venus could be referred to as Empress or Queen really - no matter who else has a title
