Nike has launched their second fall release for men with looks from Rafa and Roger and stylish pieces in colors you won’t want to miss. I’ve pulled the top 5 looks for men that will add style and performance to your tennis wardrobe.
Rafa Nadal’s is going back to sleeveless for the 2014 US Open. Take his trend to the court with his sleek Advantage Premier Sleeveless Top in light photo blue. Made with high performance fabric, this top offers excellent sweat wicking, along with mesh insets for a quick dry. Wearing the Premier Gladiators in obsidian, these shorts feature an innovated mesh-lined waistband and no-sew seaming that provides comfort in every wear. Rafa will throw on the ultra stylish Premier Jacket in light magnet grey, showcasing a new bomber-inspired design. Details like the inside mesh-lining, stretch woven fabric and full zipper makes this a must-have for fall. Complete your Rafa outfit with the Premier Headband he will sport in photo blue and light magenta. And just an FYI, the new Lunar Ballistecs in game royal and hyper punch go great with this look. They’re durable, lightweight and supportive, everything you need in a great tennis shoe.
Federer will grace the courts at the US Open in the Advantage Premier Polo in light retro. This lightweight shirt is a classic look you can take anywhere offering an athletic fit and no-sew seams at the shoulders for reduced irritation. Perforated holes are located at key sweat zones for coolness and ventilation on court. The Premier Gladiators in light photo blue is his short of choice featuring spacious side pockets for ball storage, a comfortable mesh lined waistband and laser perforations on the sides for air flow. The ultra soft Premier jacket in deep royal blue will keep Roger warm in-between matches, definitely an essential for fall. Roger’s go-to shoes, the Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tours, are a win when it comes to performance and featured in the brand new color photo blue.
