Wimbledon Brings a Variety of Footwear to the Court

Tennis Shoes

In order to play like a champion it’s important to dress like one. Footwear is especially significant in tennis because of the importance of speed and agility. Not only did Wimbledon feature some of the years’ best tennis but also showcased a sea of white and a plethora of different brands in footwear. When it comes down to it, the biggest question for tennis enthusiasts is what equipment is going to make me the best athlete. Well, let’s start at the top…or should we say the foot.Adidas Mens Tennis Shoe

Novak Djokovic was seen sporting the Adidas Barricade 7. His special edition shoe features his signature logos including a Reiki symbol representing energy and protection. This shoe is built to keep break-in to a minimum and provide superior traction on hard courts. Adidas also offers many recreational tennis shoes starting at $50.

Nike Tennis Shoes Roger

Wimbledon saw Federer sporting the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour. These shoes are even lighter and faster than ever before and feature Nike’s Adaptive Fit construction. Legendary Nike designer, Tinker Hatfield, and Roger himself, focused on designing a shoe with the comfort of a running shoe, immersed with elegant touches and ultimate playability. If your style of play is more in line with Rafael Nadal you have to check out the Nike Lunar Ballistic 1.5 shoe, which features more breathability and often comes with a 6-month durability guarantee.Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 8.20.37 AM

 

 

 

Other popular shoes worn by some of the world’s greats include Asics Gel Resolution 6 (Gael Monfils), Yonex Power Cushion Pro (Stan Wawrinka) or Milos Raonic wearing the New Balance 996v2.

There is no “wrong” or “right” choice when choosing footwear for tennis, it’s all about preference and compatibility. Whether you channel your favorite athlete or choose based on style, make sure you find the right style for you…your game depends on it.

With its distinctive F logo, the brand is associated with athletic excellence delivered with its usual Italian elegance. In 2015, the brand still remains the same…only with a futuristic infusion.

Fila Spring 2015The companies’ current crop of athletes, Sam Querrey, Jelena Jankovic, Julia Georges, and Andreas Seppi, will combat the intense Australian heat with INVISTA THERMACOOL technology. This technology optimizes the bodies’ natural thermo regulation to keep the athlete cool. Conversely, the Duoregulation feature warms your body when you feel cold. (Which is perfect for the rest of us in the Northern Hemisphere!) Sam Querrey will don a classic white and navy polo while Andreas Seppi will sport a bolder look with his navy power and shocking orange Platinum Laser Cut Top.

Fila Spring 2015Jankovic and Georges showcase outfits with removable bra padding and the ever-flattering diva pink print. The Men’s and Women’s Platinum Collection features laser cut no-sew seams, reflective finishes, pockets that are fantastic for holding your every tech device and bold hues that play into the line’s futuristic vibe.
