Nike's Slammin' Summer Styles

Nike Slammin' Summer Styles

As the city of love gears up for Roland Garros 2013 I have to ask: is it purely coincidence that the new additions to Nike’s summer collection incorporate intense shades of pink and red, or was Nike bringing the spirit of Paris to the courts here at home? Either way, you can’t help but fall in love with the new options for summer styles.

From shoes to hats, for men the color red is where it’s at - like the Nike Men’s Vapor 9 Tour Clay Tennis Shoes in Stadium Gray and Total Crimson. This lightweight shoe is Roger Federer’s weapon of choice for its adaptive fit technology that allows it to cradle your foot for added stability, Nike Zoom technology for increased responsiveness, and Extra Durable Rubber (XDR) for enhanced traction. Another RF favorite is the Nike Roger Federer Hybrid Tennis Cap that offers protection from both the sun and sweat. The Nike Men’s Premier 8 Inch Woven Tennis Shorts are also constructed to keep you moving on the court. Featuring Dri-Fit technology, these shorts wick away sweat to the fabric surface where it can evaporate. The hook and loop and hook and bar closure combination stays put during play. Nike offers a multitude of options for tees and polos so you can dress up or down, like the Nike Vamos Rafa Lockup Short Sleeve Tennis Tee or Baseline Tennis Polo. For a more middle-of-the-road look, try my personal style favorite, the Nike Advantage UV Stripe Tennis Crew in Red, featuring UV Technology for added sun protection!

For the women, Nike wants you to take the court by force – Pink Force, that is! This summer Nike makes it easy to mix-and-match with nearly every style option in Pink Force. Tops come in many cuts, from racerback tanks like the Nike Novelty Tennis Tank to the Nike Pure Short Sleeve Tennis Top that offers more coverage. My personal favorite is the Nike Power Tennis Tank which features shots of white on the sides to slim the silhouette; So far I’ve received compliments on the top every single time I’ve worn it! Skirts and skorts also come in every style option: no pleats like the Straight Knit Tennis Skirt, 4 pleats as with the Four Pleated Knit Tennis Skirt, and somewhere in between like the Nike Pleated Knit Tennis Skirt. Pieces such as the Power 11.8 Inch Tennis Skirt also offer options in skirt length. If shorts are more your thing, Nike has you covered as well with the compression-style Slam Tennis short and the more traditional Victory Tennis Short. The entire collection is constructed of Dri-FIT technology for optimal moisture management which keeps you dry and feels soft against your skin. Whatever pieces you choose, the Nike Women’s Lunarflash + Running Shoe in Pink Force, Anthracite, and Dark Gray completes your look and treats your feet to Lunarlon cushioning with Marking Rubber BRS for added durability.

Regardless of whether or not pink and red were intentionally linked to the city of love, one thing is for certain: Nike wants to help you commemorate the 2013 French Open with original hand screen printed designs on their super soft cotton tees. The Men’s Advantage Paris Short Sleeve Tee features a very creative fusion of a racquet handle and the iconic Eiffel Tower. The Women’s Get Dirty Paris Short Sleeve V Neck Tennis Tee conveys the message that it’s not just men who work hard to win!
