    I flipped on the US Open, and I was curious what kind of nearly all-white shoes she was wearing, and sure enough, it's a pair of Nike Air Max Breathe Free II's. A quick search revealed nothing on the subject, but it's so unusual to see her not wearing Reebok.

    I'm thinking Serena had something to do with her wearing the Nike shoes. As for her own line EleVen, I'm still surprised she is still wearing it, bc it's parent company, Steve and Barry's, has been fully liquidated (i.e. bankrupt) last year.

    Hate all the apparel that Venus wears. I like Azarenkas on the other hand, but think Sharapova is doing an awful job with the bandana

    Eleven makes tennis shoes as well as clothes or at least they used to. Steve and Barry's used to sell those Eleven shoes for like $15 a pair.

    Steve & Barry's were just the outlet for her company. Now where you can buy the line, I don't know.

    You can't buy it anywhere anymore. They have closed down all 276 stores and the website. Their clothes were very cheap, and very cheaply made.
