Summer is on its way and things are starting to heat up on the court with the Nike Summer Collection! Luckily, every piece in this collection features Dri-FIT technology to provide sweat management. You’ll stay cool, dry, and comfortable during play. In addition to the technically perfect fabrication, there are plenty of new colors to keep you ahead of the competition: Cosmic Purple, Deep Royal Blue, Energy, Hyper Cobalt, Light Photo Blue, Ocean Fog, and Wolf Grey.
Well, let’s dive in and begin with tops!
The Premier Advantage Sleeveless Polo is a NEW top that adds a modern twist to a classic on-court look. The slim ribbed collar works together with the traditional polo placket so you look stylish and club ready. The racerback style allows for a complete range of motion while the dolphin hem provides modesty when you’re making those big moves. Look for Victoria Azarenka to shine in this Polo this summer.
Another classic look that has been punched up in style is the Premier Maria Top. It sports a feminine, flattering fit with a rounded neckline to make you feel like a champion on the court.
Moving on to skirts, we must discuss the best news from Nike this year: ALL skirts now boast built-in undershorts. This means you can stop worrying about finding the perfect shorts to keep you covered and comfortable during play, since they have done all that legwork for you…pun intended! Additionally, Nike has added a second length option so there are now the regular 11.75” and the longer 13”. The Baseline Skirt is the most popular in the whole Summer collection. It is feminine and flowing, a completely vibrant look.
The Victory Skirt has been designed with the most aggressive players in mind. The beautiful pleats emphasize quick movements on the court while the Power Mesh waistband creates a flattering fit. You may remember seeing Serena Williams rock this look at the Australian Open!
If you like this collection so far, you’re sure to love the Premier Advantage Tennis Dress. My favorite piece in the collection , it’s a wonderful callback to the sleeveless polo above. Choose what you’ll wear underneath to personalize this outfit and keep you feeling and moving naturally. This classic, athletic look will be seen on up-and-coming star Eugenie Bouchard this summer.
Let’s leave behind all those exquisite skirts and dresses and move on to the other up-and-comers of the season: shorts! We all love to run and cross train in shorts, but now you can follow in Victoria Azarenka’s footsteps and boldly wear the Ace Shorts in competition. They feature a mesh waistband for comfort and breathability. The 2-way spandex undershorts enhance range of motion without sacrificing coverage, so you feel comfortable and stylish.
Finally, let’s talk about the updated Featherlight Visor. No more Velcro! Nike has modified this visor to include a stretchy sweatband, so you no longer have to fret with the closure getting tangled in your hair. The traits we have always loved remain: shield from the sun, reduced pressure against the forehead, and a comfortable bill.
That’s all for now, but don’t fret as the rest of this collection can be found at TennisExpress.com!
