Adidas Tennis Apparel
Founded in Germany in 1949, Adidas was named for its founder – “Adi” for Adolf and “Das” for Dassler. But it wasn’t until six years later that the company we know for its high-performance athletic gear came into being with what is known as the “Bern Miracle.” Germany’s national soccer team faced off against a favored Hungry and emerged from the battlefield victorious. What were they wearing? Adidas soccer boots made with the first removable rubber studs.
The modern Adidas is as well-known for its style off the field as it is for its performance in the high-pressure world of professional competitive sports. Designer Stella McCartney noticed Adidas’ unmistakable appeal and teamed up with the company to create a line of sportswear for women who take their style as seriously as they do their sports. The line includes clothing designed specifically for the gym, wintersports and for running, and Adidas by Stella McCartney is the apparel choice for tennis pro Maria Kirilenko as she continues her climb up the international rankings.
Other tennis pros who count on Adidas to showcase their personal style on the court include Marcos Baghdatis, Ana Ivanovic and Nadia Petrova. Recognizing the legendary prowess of Adidas athletic shoes (remember those soccer boots), athletes of all ability levels chose the Barricade IV W, enhanced with a unique three-claw forefoot, helping you make a more controlled shot and faster turns. Just ask Justine Hennin-Hardenne. The Barricade IV W has the added weapon of Adidas adiPRENE, which helps maintain forefoot propulsion and cushions your heel against the impact of the court.
If you are looking for a lightweight tennis shoe with a stable foundation, you need look no further than the Adidas ClimaCool Boom W. This shoe is loaded with technology to keep you on your toes – not to mention its sleek appearance. Perfect for players at all levels, the ClimaCool technology will keep you feet cool no matter how hot things get on the court. These shoes even include a ClimaCool sock liner.
The ClimaCool Boom W also boasts adiPRENE, giving you control, comfort and the response you look for in a high-performance shoe. If apparel is what you’re looking for, you need look further than the Adidas Competition Tee. Made for both men and woman, the Competition Tee is a serious piece of gear for a serious athlete. Loaded with technology like 3D engineered ForMotion, it gives you the perfect fit without hindering your movement. Don’t forget ClimaCool, which keeps your temperature controlled even in the heat of competition.
The Competition Tee is also equipped with UV protection, helping you stay healthy even on the hottest summer days. Choosing your apparel wisely is an important part of your game. So choose the Men’s Competition Shorts. These shorts may appeal ordinary, but they are made using Adidas technology like ForMotion. The material moves with you, never inhibiting your movement no matter how fast and furious you are playing.
The ClimaCool technology is incorporated into these shorts, engineered for anatomically-correct moisture removal and ventilation. The built-in UV protection wards off the harmful rays of the sun. Protecting your head and eyes from dangerous UV rays is as important as protecting the rest of your body. Choose the Adidas ClimaLite cap and get UPF 50+ protection from harmful rays. This washable cap also features the ClimaLite technology to keep your head cool and dry.
What is it that they say? Never let them see you sweat. Rely on Adidas shoes and apparel to keep you looking cool and confident, no matter how competitive your game.
