New Men’s Nike For The 2018 Australian Open

Time to crank up some Swoosh magic on the sizzling courts of Melbourne and the Australian Open. Lightness of fabric and ease of movement in your clothes means everything because it’s a hot one, don’cha know. Australia is waaay over there, er, down there. We’re freezing, they’re an Easy-Bake Oven. You’ve seen those shots on TV of the players wrapped in ice- Maria’s not so happy, is she. The holidays are over, and it’s time to get to work. Let’s see what Nike has in store for the men, right? (Women covered here.)

Nike Men’s Spring RF Zonal Advantage Henley 

Now here’s a different look for Club Fed and I like it a lot. Kinda has that soccer football vibe. Roger will look good in this. I can’t say I’ve ever seen striping like this from Nike before, but I could be wrong there. The only drag is here the stripe is front only, nothing on the back…wrap-around would have been neat. In Vast Grey w/Bright Citron & Black (shown) and White w/Lava Glow & Black. Find it: TW/USATW/Europe

Nike Men’s Spring RF Jacket

So here’s the jacket that matches. Why do you need a jacket in Melbourne? No idea. And I’m not so sure about that collar detail…what is that? Black w/Dark Grey Heather & Lava Glow and White w/Dark Grey Heather & Black for this one. Find it: TW/USATW/Europe

Nike Men’s Spring Rafa AeroReact Top

Not sure what Nike is doing with their Rafa lines. Just totally uninspiring from this point of view, no? Pure Platinum w/Black, or White w/Black. Find it: TW/USATW/Europe

Nike Men’s Spring Zonal Challenger Crew

This one really pops, (as on pro Frances Tiafoe, below) and echoes the Fed look up top, though this one is two-tone on the back, too. Atmosphere w/Grey, Black & White (shown) and Lava Glow w/Black. Find it: TW/USATW/Europe

Nike Men’s Spring Tennis Balls T-Shirt

You can see the various facial expressions on the tennis ball as the game’s score proceeds. And here I didn’t even know they had faces, silly me. Black w/Wolf Grey…Dark Grey Heather w/Volt…White w/Black. Find it: TW/USA
