NikeCourt Melbourne Collection Tennis Clothes

Did you know Melbourne is one of the hottest tennis courts used for a Major? And soon, 700,000 people will flock to the opening slam in Australia to see the action. NikeCourt is Nike’s line of tennis clothes – made for performance and good looks. And later this month, NikeCourt will unveil their 2020 collection. And it’s gonna be hot – so NikeCourt designers developed a knee-length bodysuit for women as a baselayer. This garment was designed using Atlas body-mapping to identify the areas that tend to overheat. For women that is typically under the bra and at the neckline. But what Nike has done here is to piece this garment together to maximize breathability for those hotspots. Why use a base garment? It serves dual purposes. Players often want to combine a cooler outfit and still present a unique style on the court. (After all – who doesn’t want to look good under the watchful eye of thousands of tennis fans?)

The Nike Metcon 5 AMP is a colorful addition to the Nike Metcon 5 line of shoes. These shoes are popular for expanding the boundaries of the modern cross-training shoe performance. Thanks to the ultra stable heel and outsole they offer increased stability for weightlifters , but still have greater flexibility in the forefoot for runners. CrossFit shoes also need to be tough. The Nike Metcon 5 uses durable, haptic 3D print on the mesh upper that will offer superior durability- especially in the high-wear areas. This is because the print is applied more densely in the areas that get the most wear – like on the edges of the toebox, for example. And hey – [Read more …]
