Nike’s NYC Collection For The US Open
NikeCourt has released the looks we’ll be seeing on the courts of Flushing Meadow (You already know about the new Federer/Jordan shoe shoe and the Maria Sharapova/Riccardo Tisci outfit.) Let’s take a look!
(This first shirt Fed is wearing is called the Nike Men’s Fall RF Top. We expect that RF will wear red by day and black by night. The color gradation adds an artsy edge to a fairly traditionally cut V neck.)
The Nike Men’s Fall RF Flex Ace 9″ Short matches the shirt. In three colors, White, Midnight Navy AKA Black, and White. Notice the “RF” now shows on the shorts- it used to be on just shirts and jackets.
And we’ve seen The Fed himself sporting this one. It’s the Nike Men’s Fall RF Court T-Shirt. In Blue Jay w/Black..Action Red w/White..and White w/Black.
Next up is the Nike Men’s Fall Rafa Aerocourt Top. I must say this one is a head scratcher, if only because he’s been wearing this design for what seems like forever. We’re long past the days of Michael Chang, who wore the same red/white/blue Reebok top for about ten years. (Well, not really. But it was a long time.) Black, White, and Yellow for this one. And we know Rafa, he doesn’t like change, no? We stay with this one.
Now we come to the Nike Men’s Fall Advantage NYC Henley – fabrication and print are new here. In NikeCourt’s promo shots, Jack Sock, Nick Kyrgios are wearing this one. Black w/Hot Punch and Armory Blue w/Pure Platinum.
And finally, let’s take a look at shoes that will never see the light of day at Wimbledon, but should look sleek under the lights of NYC. For the guys, this is The Fed’s shoe, the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Flyknit Red/Silver. Find it: TW/USA • TW/Europe
There has to be a daytime shoe, right? Right. The Nike Zoom Vapor Flyknit Day Grey/White. (You might notice that TW has different names for this shoe depending on the continent. TW/Europe calls it “Day” so we’re goin’ with that, capiche? Find it: TW/USA • TW/Europe
OK! Time to shift gears!
This is the Nike Women’s Fall Slam NYC Tank, which Madison Keys will be wearing. It’s available in Metallic Platinum w/Pure Platinum and Metallic Platinum w/Hot Punch. All in the family with this collection – take a look above at the men’s henley.
And this is the Nike Women’s Fall Slam NYC Dress– in Matte Silver w/Hot Punch. It might have been for Serena.
