Breast Cancer Awareness Month: The power of pink.

Just because Breast Cancer Awareness is only campaigned during the month of October, doesn’t mean you can’t wear Pink Ribbon clothes for the rest of the year to show your support! To kick off my favorite Breast Cancer Awareness outfit I chose the Under Armour Power in Pink Fighter Long-Sleeve. Especially since the weather is starting to cool down, I find myself wearing these comfy long-sleeve crews quite often. They’re perfect for chilly weather workouts. They keep your arms covered from the cold air and they’re not quite as heavy as sweatshirts so you can still move well. With this top in particular, I love the colorblocking raglan sleeves for a little extra style. The Nike Winter Racer Long Sleeve Top and tasc Fall 5K Long Sleeve Top are some notable ones with fun colorblocking to check out as well.

Quick Review: Lotto Ultra Raptor IV

The Lotto Ultra Raptor IV is one of the best performing and unappreciated shoes on the market.

The Lotto Ultra Raptor IV is one of the best performing and unappreciated shoes on the market.

The Spanish grinder and top 5 ATP pro David Ferrer has been a model of consistency for a number of years. Regardless of the draw, the conditions, the surface, he seems to always be there deep in tournaments. Like David, his shoe, the Lotto Ultra Raptor IV, has also been a model of consistency, as Lotto year after year produces one of the best performing shoes on the market. However, it goes almost unnoticed by most tennis players, even the enthusiasts!

We playtested the latest update to the Lotto Raptor line when it came out at the beginning of the year, and almost our entire team concluded it is one of their favorite shoes on the market. Currently, it’s the choice of four top 10 pros on the ATP and WTA tours. Recent Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli along with top 5 WTA pro Agneiska Radwanska are sporting the women’s version, while Spaniards Ferrer and Nicolas Almagro rock the men’s.

Petra in Purple in Instanbul!

I’m really loving a bunch of the pieces in the Nike Winter group that we have right now. We are seeing a lot of purple from several brands right now and the Purple Dynasty from Nike is really standing out as a great seasonal color. My favorite WTA player, Petra Kvitova, has one of my favorite looks at the moment.

pppThe big serving lefty from the Czech Republic is wearing the Nike Winter Printed Knit Top, (which is similar to the top Li Na wore at the US Open, which I also loved). Despite the chill in the air, some of us will continue to benefit from the SPF protection (UV 40+) this top offers while playing outside, while everyone else that moves indoors for the fall/winter season will enjoy how lightweight this top is so it won’t weigh you down on the court.

 

She pairs it with the Nike Winter Woven Pleated Skort in purple dynasty. I love this skort because of it the fit, but also that line toward the middle that looks like a ribbon encircling the skort. Her shoe of choice is the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9s in the White, Pink, Purple colorway. I love the the swoosh on this shoe because it has a sparkly pop of that purple dynasty to tie the whole look together.

 

Hope you all are enjoying the great tennis in Instanbul at the BNP Paribas WTA Championships!

 

Play with heart,
Michelle
