Men's Tennis Shoes: Save vs Splurge

For this week’s installment of Save vs Spurge I take a look at some of the best shoes to wear on the court for any tennis player’s wallet. For those who don’t want to break the bank, the adidas Bercuda 3 would be the perfect fit coming in at $49.95.  With its stylish looks, this shoe features adiPRENE+ technology for responsive feel and has adidas’ signature stability claws in the forefoot. For those looking for a high performance shoe, check out the adidas Barricade 8 for $114.95 (and our review). This sleek black/green colorway has plenty of stability and support for even the most aggressive player. While the Barricade 8 has an adiWEAR 6 outsole for high durability, it also comes with a six-month outsole durability guarantee for extra protection.

Check back next week for another save vs splurge!

Tennis Jackets: Save vs Splurge

 

It’s time for a little shopping! Should I save or splurge? Inspired by the rainy weather today here in San luis Obispo, I wanted to get a jacket. My save today is the Asics Fall Racquet Jacket in green jade and is a bargain at $54. This lightweight jacket features all the technologies you need as well as some stylish details. It features a full-zip entry and elastic binding at the cuffs and hem along with a tonal screen print and rushing on the back.  For my second pick, the adidas Stella McCartney Spring Jacket in fresh aqua is a perfect splurge item. This lightweight jacket is perfect to throw on after a match and is stylish enough to keep on once you step off the courts.The exaggerated collar make quite a statement on both the front and back.

With each of these Save Vs. Splurge blogs, I’ll first feature a “save” since everyone loves a good deal, myself included, and I am always on the hunt to find the best price. And the second will be a “splurge,” which I think is necessary at times to purchase an item that is top of the line or just released. The products will range from apparel to shoes to bags to accessories. Keep checking back in with us for another edition of Save vs Splurge!

Diadora Speed Star II

Like a typical female fashionista, shoes are one of my biggest weaknesses! Everything from cute sandals to wedges, boots to flip flops, running shoes to flats…and of course, tennis shoes!

speed star 2

So when I put on the new Speed Star K W IIs by Diadora…let’s just say, I was one happy lady! Plush cushioning enveloped my feet in a sleek black and purple design. I was officially obsessed! And by obsessed, I mean I couldn’t take them off! I proudly wore them all over the TW explaining to everyone how amazingly comfortable these cute shoes were. I wore them down the hall, I wore them for a hit and I wore them in the gym…I even took them out for a walk to get some coffee because there was no way I was taking these shoes off! Nothing can beat the plush perfection of these shoes!

So comfort and cosmetics aside, why else do I love these shoes? They are quick and low to the ground, yet still stable and have a good grip on the court. Everything I’m looking for in a tennis shoe and more! While they work great on the court, I must admit that I find myself slipping these shoes on whenever I can! With a six month outsole guarantee, I know I will be getting a lot of use out of these and can look forward to a new pair if I happen to wear them down in the next 6 months.

These are quickly climbing up the ladder to be a new favorite shoe of mine…ladies, trust me on this one…check these Diadoras out!

Play with heart,

Prints are in for men when it comes to shorts this season. Notable pros to step out in printed shorts at the start of this season include Roger Federer and Juan Martin Del Potro. Here are my top five printed men’s tennis shorts.

1. Travis Mathew Men’s Spring Curtis Short – $68.00

Plaid shorts have been around the courts for ages. Everyone has done them, Nike, adidas, Fila, the list goes on. But no one has done it better than newcomer to the tennis scene Travis Mathew. Looking at the Curtis Short from a distance, you’d think this is a casual cotton short. Up close, you realize that this is a performance stretch woven short.

Throwing a tennis-Oscar party, 6 easy ideas!

It’s Oscar time! The Academy Awards show doesn’t start until 7 p.m ET/4 p.m PT on Sunday, so that leaves plenty of time to get some tennis in beforehand.

I am no party planner, but I do love a get-together. Add in tennis and a theme? You had me at Champagne brunch. Here are six easy ideas for an informal tennis-Oscar brunch.
