It’s back! The 2020 U.S. Open will be the first major international sporting event since the beginning of the global COVID-19 pandemic in March. As players head to the New York bubble, and safety protocols are put into place, we can check out what some of the biggest names in the sport will be wearing with the Nike New York Slam Apparel Collection. Featuring bold patterns and vibrant colors that were originally debuted on Andre Agassi in 1990, this collection is truly worthy of the return of the sport!
Women’s New York Collection
Nike players, such as Sloane Stephens, Amanda Anisimova, Aryna Sabalenka, and Victoria Azarenka will be taking the court in the iconic New York Slam Tank. The pattern of this tank is reminiscent of the 90s, but has been updated with a modern silhouette. Lightweight knit fabric and moisture-wicking technology guarantee breathability. The cutout in the back ensures you’ll stay cool while defeating your opponents in both points and style!
Pair the tank with the New York Team Court Slam Tennis Skort for an all-over energetic look! Available in both Regular (11.75”) or Tall (14”), the bright color splashes will make you stand out in the best way! The breathable fabric and Dri-Fit technology will keep you cool and dry, while the wide, mid-rise waistband and inner shorts keep you supported.
For a classic print with an updated style, the Court Challenge Cropped Tennis Tank is the perfect fit! The retro flaming tennis ball graphic has been updated with soft jersey fabric, a classic racerback shape, and a slightly cropped fit.
If you prefer shorts, Nike has you covered with the New York Team Court Slam Tennis Short. These classic shorts are made of breathable fabric and Dri-Fit technology to keep you cool and dry. The stretchy, woven fabric and hem vents are made to move, and the inner shorts keep you supported.
For added layers, the New York Team Court Tennis Jacket and Pant are the perfect mix of style and flair! This look is classic 90s, with vivid color splashes, original Challenge Court graphics, and a slightly crinkled fabric. The Jacket features a full-length zipper and snap buttons for a customizable fit. The sustainable polyester fabric is lightweight and versatile, and eyelets at each underarm allow breathability. The corresponding Pants have a jogger shape which creates a retro look with stretchy, zipper hems to easily take the pants off or on without removing your shoes. An elastic waistband and drawcord create a perfect fit between matches.
Pair the collection with the Nike Women’s Air Zoom GP Turbo in White and Laser Fuchsia for a bold look, head to toe! Flexible, breathable, responsive, and built to last, these shoes deliver style and maximum function on court.
Men’s New York Collection
Many ATP players like Denis Shapovalov, Francis Tiafoe, Taylor Fritz and Grigor Dimitrov will be sporting the Nike NY Slam collection on court, paying tribute to Agassi. Join their ranks, and stand out against the competition with the New York Team Court Advantage Tennis Polo! Nike’s Dri-FIT technology allows for quicker sweat evaporation to keep you cool and comfortable. The shoulder seams are rolled back at an angle for a greater range of movement during overheads. Featuring the same graphics from the original 1990 Nike Challenge Court Collection, this polo is bright, fun, and perfect for your most intense matches!
The New York Team Court Challenger Tennis Top is another perfect option, with loud prints and sustainable materials. The retro pattern is made modern with Nike Breathe fabric for comfort both on and off the court. The sleeves have been reshaped, making them more open and slightly shorter for extra room to swing. The shoulder seams feature the same rolled back seams as the Polo for freedom of motion during overheads and serves.
The New York Court Slam Half Zip Tennis Polo offers a more subdued pattern, but keeps the bright colors of the rest of the collection. The front of the polo is slightly cropped for a retro silhouette, making it practically identical to the original top worn in the 90s. The mesh fabric and Dri-FIT technology are guaranteed to keep you cool during the heat of the game. Raglan sleeves allow for a smooth feel with no shoulder seams.
Mix and match any top with the New York Team Court Flex Ace 9” Tennis Short for a bright, classic look, from top to bottom! The vibrant colors fit with the rest of the collection, and the Nike Flex fabric stretches as you move. The angled hem-vents allow you to move side-to-side freely, and the elastic waistband and hidden drawcord create the perfect fit.
Another classic-made-modern option is the New York Team Court Slam Tennis Short. Featuring the classic flaming tennis ball graphic, Nike’s Dri-FIT technology, and angled hem-vents, these shorts are the perfect option to look and feel cool on court.
The classic street style of the Court Standard Challenge Tennis Polo is made athletic with breathable fabric, Dri-FIT technology, and eyelets at the underarms for breathability. The pattern is pushed through the material for a vintage look. Subtle details add style, and the longer back hem lets you wear the polo untucked.
If comfort is key, the New York Collection also features three casual tops to go from the court to the gym and everywhere in between! The Court Challenge All Over Print Tennis Tee highlights a bold pattern in more subtle colors, Dri-FIT technology, and soft jersey fabric. The Court Challenge Fireball Tennis Top and the Court Challenge Long Sleeve Tennis Top both feature the vintage flaming tennis ball graphic for a classic look to display your favorite sport.
In between matches, channel the 90s, with the lightweight, slightly crinkled fabric of the New York Team Court Tennis Jacket and Pant. The Jacket features bold graphics, a full zipper and snaps, and enamel eyelets at the underarms for breathability. The Pants come in solid colors to mix and match with any top, and have a hidden drawcord and elastic waistband and hems for ultimate comfort and fit.
The Nike Men’s Vapor X in Volt and Black completes the eye-catching look of this collection. Featuring lightweight and supportive technology, these shoes allow you to run, jump, and slide match after match!
