I thought that Adidas would just like Nike repeat the US Open collection at Roland Garros, but at the last minute they presented a new tennis collection called City Lights. This cold fortnight in Paris, Angelique Kerber, Garbine Muguruza, Kristina Mladenovic and Maria Sakkari are wearing the high-performance footwear and apparel pieces designed to make a statement on and off the court.
The collection features marble-effect prints with pearl metallic and glitter details, while muted tones of green blended with accents of silver complete the look.
Due to low temperatures and drizzle in Paris, players are wearing several layers, so we can’t properly see all the pieces. In this photo of Maria Sakkari from her first-round win over Ajla Tomljanovic we can see the new marble-printed skirt in action.
When it comes to footwear, the adizero Ubersonic and SoleCourt have also been reimagined with a marble and metallic affects style. Both silhouettes are available in hard and clay court outsoles.
The adidas SoleCourt features a TPU chassis, midfoot torsion bar, BOOST midsole, and 3D heel counter for extra durability, stability, and comfort. The SoleCourt silhouette also features PRIMEBLUE, a high-performance recycled material made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic.
Meanwhile, the Ubersonic 2 is built for ultimate acceleration and agility with its reactive, lightweight EVA midsole, breathable net mesh upper, and lightweight sprintframe construction.
The new Adidas collection is available at Tennis Warehouse USA.
