Best new gear at the 2013 Australian Open

There’s tons of new racquets, shoes and apparel being released at the beginning of the year, so I want to dish out some awards to the best introductions of new swag at the first Grand Slam of 2013…


Best men’s outfit (shirt/shorts only, no shoes):  Lotto

I’m going with a surprise in this category, but I think the new Lotto outfit is awesome. The bright yellow design is super eye-catching on TV, and they have quite a few guys still going in the draw, like Kevin Anderson, Nicolas Almagro, and David Ferrer.

Murray is wearing a pair of Barricades in the colors of the Barricade 7 Orange/White. You can get a similar look to him in the adidas Spring barricade Logo T-Shirt and Spring Response 9-inch Short.
