Prince has announced the arrival of its new Lightspeed footwear, pictured here at the Australian Open on doubles duo, Johan Brunstrom (right) and Jean-Julien Rojer. Both are wearing the GLM Crew and Knit Short from Prince's Men's Spring 2010 Gold Label Collection.
The Lightspeed will be available in two models, the Rebel LS, $110 USD, for men (pictured here) and the Poise LS, $105, for women. According to Prince, the new shoes are designed on a low-profile platform that keeps a player's center of gravity low for enhanced balance, agility and responsiveness. A key feature is a propulsion plate - a lightweight chassis built to transfer energy fluidly from the heel to the forefoot, resulting in quicker reaction time, better acceleration, and a sense of being on the balls of your feet. In addition, each shoe features Dri-Lex lining and Prince’s Shock Eraser Pro heel insert to deliver maximum impact protection.
The Rebel LS will be available in yellow/black/silver (above) which coordinates with the EXO3Rebel 95 racquet and black/white/green to go with the EXO3 graphite. Cool. I have to say, a little matching in your on-court style is deadly powerful looking guys. White/navy/silver is available for traditionalists. The womens version, the Poise LS comes in white neon silver. No matching racquet, well, maybe the EXO3 white 100.
Players also wearing the new line include: Marcel Granollers, Santiago Ventura, Rik DeVoest, Martin Damm, Filip Polasek, Johan Brunstrom in the Rebel LS and Kveta Peschke and Yvonne Meusburger in the new Poise LS.
