The tennis sneakers that scared Wimbledon.

Predominately white is the fashion rule at Wimbledon but players aren’t taking any chances this year. Gone are even the littlest touches of on-court color besides those in logos.

Rog. went down fairly quickly after that. Not sure you can blame the shoes but tennis players are never happy changing-up what’s working mid tournament.

As they say, better safe than sorry.
