Our picks for gear that celebrates the Australian Open
The 2017 Australian Open is underway Down Under. You can just call it the AO, as that’s what their new contemporary looking logo does. Gone is the tennis player silhouette from years past. Here are a few special edition AO-themed items you may want to check out.
We’ll start with one awesome effort by Asics.
Asics Gel Resolution 7 Melbourne Men’s and Women’s Shoe
This Special Edition colorway from Asics features a print across the upper that pays tribute to some of Australia’s unique animal life, commemorating the first Grand Slam of the 2017 season! Who wouldn’t want kangaroos on their sneakers? Doggone it, if Asics made these in extra-wide, I’d order a pair right now. Here is the men’s model:
The women’s model:
adidas Men’s Aussie Open T-Shirt
You can head out for some on court training or watch some grand slam tennis in this adidas Aussie Open T-Shirt. The cotton-blend tee offers Climalite performance, a soft feel, screen print graphic on chest, and printed adidas logo at left chest. 70% cotton, 30% polyester.
Australian Open 2017 Men’s Process Blue Basic Logo T-Shirt
This men’s T is 100% cotton with screen printed graphics.
Australian Open 2017 Men’s Performance Zip-Thru Jacket
Though for the life of me I can’t image needing to wear a jacket there — kinda hot don’cha know — this jacket is 100% poly with a wind-breaking exterior, front zip pockets, elasticated cuffs, and a contrasting lime interior and chest logo.
Australian Open 2017 Ladies White Fashion Polo
This polo is 100% Cotton Pique with the new AO logo printed on the left chest.
Australian Open 2017 Logo Plush Kangaroo
It’s Australia! You gotta have kangaroos! (I didn’t see any tennis koala bears, though.) Not tennis gear but just plain cute.
