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!

Sneak Peek: adidas ClimaChill – The coolest shirt ever!

Screen shot 2014-02-18 at 3.26.44 PMWhether you’re ready or not, it’s time to start thinking about that upcoming tennis season. This year, there is finally apparel that will help keep you cool and your game sharp in the sweltering summer heat.

adidas introduces ClimaChill technology to their tennis apparel that actually keeps you feeling cool and refreshed on court.  What you’ll probably notice first when you try it on will be the Aluminum Cooling Spheres. Little round metal dots are strategically located on the garments that actually feel cool to the touch. When moving around the court, your skin will touch the dots and make you feel a cooling sensation as you brush past them.

Screen shot 2014-02-18 at 3.30.29 PMTops and shorts are also made with a revolutionary material that is ultra breathable like mesh, but without it being see through.  Along with exceptional ventilation, the clothing is made of a revolutionary flat yarn that contains titanium. Upon surface contact with the skin, it draws heat away from the body faster than traditional round yarn.

We’ve seen tennis racquet, string and shoe technology evolve, and now it’s time for apparel to follow suit. Check out adidas ClimaChill and feel the difference! It’s time to drop your body temperature and raise your game to new heights!

adidas brings back the Barricade V tennis shoe

If you are a longtime tennis player, like myself, when you hear the word “barricade” you instantly think of a very stable adidas tennis shoe…or is that just me?! Launching in the year 2000, adidas has created a legacy in the Barricade line of shoes for being one of the top tennis shoes for aggressive tennis players of all ages.

AWB5CBP-1My first run in with the Barricade line takes me back to my college tennis days. Back in 2001, our team was sponsored by adidas, and our shoe of choice (along with several other teams across the country) was the Barricade. The ideal shoe for a college team, our Barricades held up great with the 20-hour practice weeks and tournaments and matches every weekend — not to mention they were easy to move in, yet provided the ultimate support and stability.

Stocking Stuffers! (Great Tennis Gifts under $20!)

sstwBeing that tennis has consumed a good 95% of my life, you can assume that means my family and friends eat, sleep and breathe almost as much tennis as I do on a daily basis (and I certainly make sure they get their daily dose of tennis). Even the members of my family that don’t play tennis anymore still love the clothes and accessories that tennis players adorn from the hoodies to headbands to tops and capris, etc. And don’t even get me started on the obsession from my brother-in-law-to-be with the sour candy from Sugarpova.

With that being said, although I am slacking slightly this year in my gift buying, there’s a good chance most of my presents will be bought where? Where else but the Warehouse! So while I can’t disclose too much on the specifics of my shopping cart because I know I have snoopers in my family…I can offer some pretty awesome stocking stuffers (I’m talking some seriously fun swag for under $20!) for you guys to contemplate for the tennis lovers in your life!

Winter tennis looks: Dress to suit your style or mood

If the weather out there is frightful, it’s time to head indoors for some tennis! And even in milder climates, it’s time to pull on some outerwear — or at least start thinking about it. There are so many options to create a variety of styles, so you can mix things up day to day or keep your look streamlined. Below are just a few looks that are perfect for the season.

Winter tennis looks: Classic

Rich colors have a way of seeming cozy and warm. Nike got it just right with raspberry red and deep purple. The colors look great together. Above, the Pure SS Top is paired with the Slam Skirt. The Pure Top is a flattering top that offers full coverage and a great option for cooler days. Throw on the Nike Knit Sweater for added warmth for a classic finish. The sweater looks sharp on court but just as smart with a pair of jeans. Accessorize as you see fit, but we’ve chosen the Featherlight Visor and a Maggie Mather tote in a neutral color.
