The NikeCourt Air Zoom Zero will come in three New York inspired colorways.

The shoes, unveiled on on Monday, feature athletic requirements such as a full-length curved Zoom bag along with a rubber outsole to make the shoes withstand rigorous modern tennis activity.

The streamlined shoe includes stylish features including the Nike Swoosh on both the toe front and the sides of the shoes. Other details include a unique heat mapping pattern on its tongue as well as the word “New York” written in multiple languages – a tribute to the U.S Open, reports Sole Collector.

If that’s not enough, other details on the sporty NikeCourt Air Zoom Zero include a unique cutout on the sole of the shoe. According to Nike, the cutout reveals a collage made up of several national flags. This pays homage to both the different nationalities living in New York City as well as the various nationalities of NikeCourt athletes.

The NikeCourt Air Zoom Zero will be available on on Thursday, July 19. Price is currently unavailable.
