With Wimbledon’s finals fast approaching you’d be forgiven for getting swept up in the excitement and energy around the historic event. Many of us will now be taking the courts at our local clubs playing out our own version of Nadal V Federer and guess what, Nike have just the gear to make sure you look as good as them doing it too.
Lets start with the apparel the NikeCourt London 2019 collection creates a visceral experience with its textures, which are primarily knits on sublimated sweaters, cardigans and more vintage-inspired looks in white and black. They playfully subvert the heritage of the tournament we all know and love. Looking closer at the collection reveals elements inspired by hand-crafted details, such as the black twill and white thread arrangement of the Swoosh on the chest. The black version of the apparel is offered at retail, allowing mix-and-match options off the court. You’ll be looking like a true champion stepping onto court in this gear!
And then we move on the the all important footwear, after all, a bad tennis player wears bad footwear are we right?
That being said NikeCourt are offering two silhouettes in their 2019 collection, rocking the famous ‘hot lava’ colorway with its sleek, lightweight upper constructions. The NikeCourt Vapor x TC Knit pays tribute to the tooling of the iconic tennis signature shoe. The circular-knit upper descends to a visible Max Air unit in the heel, while the Swoosh design is debossed in leather. The NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor x Knit is constructed of high-tensile strength yarns to support quick cuts and movements. A stretchy internal sleeve provides a sock-like fit.
So do yourself a favour, don’t step on court without this gear. If you do, you might be at risk of losing, not only the game, but the on court battle of style too. Don’t take the risk.
