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
