No, You Can't Buy Serena Williams's Boots in SF
By now, you've heard the story. Serena Williams, the greatest athlete of all time, was wandering by the tennis courts at Dolores Park Monday night when she decided to ask two guys if she could play the winner of their match. Of course, they accepted.
Since Williams was just out for a stroll with her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, she didn't have footwear for a proper ass-whooping. Nevertheless, she persisted...and played in her Uggs.
Exactly what style of Uggs does the world's number one tennis star wear for pickup game in 40-degree weather? That would be the Roxy, which looks like the classic tall-shaft boot, but with leather laces to cinch the front. The Roxy is no longer available on Ugg's website, and a staffer confirmed that the Union Square store no longer carries the style. But, if you're a truly committed Serena fan, you might have luck on eBay.
While I can't confirm the authenticity, there is an eBay seller out of Australia who has a large supply of Roxy Uggs in 13 colors, including black like Serena's boots. The seller is listing them for a Buy It Now price of $146.04, but it's unclear whether they'll ship to the US. (The listing says no international shipping, but eBay's international service is so easy that you might be able to convince them.)
If you really want to be like the greatest, you'll find a way to make it work. Serena would.
