New: The adidas Adizero Ubersonic Sun Tzu for men
“Quickness is the essence of war.“ – Sun Tzu
Tennis matches have become battles and so it is fitting that Sun Tzu, the great Chinese military strategist, philosopher and author of The Art of War, is commemorated in a Limited Edition Ubersonic, adidas’ lightweight, speed-oriented premium tennis shoe. The footwear is the third release from the limited edition adidas Ubersonic footwear Energy Pack and it’s being released now while the guys are on their swing through Asia.
This is a sleek shoe with a color scheme that would’ve fit in well at the French Open- but they had their own shoe, too. Tennis Identity has watched adidas all year for these special edition shoes. See our other looks at limited edition adidas releases- Alexander The Great, Hannibal, Aphrodite, and Artemis.
Now, this particular release is part of their “Energy Pack” series- but Sun Tzu was a warrior, so shouldn’t he be in the Strategy Pack with the other military guys like Alexander and Hannibal? Or is that the Warrior Pack? Arrrgh, confused. The Sun Tzu is available now at Tennis Warehouse.
Striking design features around the shoe honor the great military general. The brushstroke camo print across the upper paints the perfect balance between defense and attack, two elements that are crucial in achieving invincibility and victory. And finally, the red accents represent fire, success and good fortune in Chinese culture.
Fly around the court in this truly unique offering that still offers enough support and stability for even for the most elite players. A seamless bootie construction provides a personalized, comfortable fit while helping to lock in the foot for added stability.
The super breathable and lightweight upper material has been reinforced with a plethora of technologies to further secure the foot and enhance durability. Sprintframe technology keeps your foot in the optimal position for aggressive lateral changes of direction on court.
Alex Chan, Global Category Director, adidas Tennis explains,
Sun Tzu is famed for the words ‘Speed is the essence of war’ and with adizero footwear providing speed and acceleration on court, he made the ideal muse for our latest release from the Energy Pack. Tennis is a sport that is as much about mental strength, strategy and tactics as it is physicality and skill, and the adizero Ubersonic Sun Tzu is our expression of that.
