What: DeFeet D-Evo socks. Tabby Groovy and the Tabby.
My take: Get them. Your feet will thank you. Here are five quick reasons why:
1. There’s a size for you! Offered in sizes small through extra large, the D-Evo socks come in a size to fit everything from a women’s size 6 shoe (that’s me) to a men’s size 14.
2. No yucky rubbing on the toes. DeFeet calls it an “imperceptible toe seam.” I call it magic. Really it’s a seamless toe construction, which minimizes rubbing on the top of the toes — where tennis players can experience a lot of friction. That in turn means less chance for blisters on the tops of your toes.
3. The heel tab. That’s going to protect your heels from unwanted rubbing as well as help keep your socks up (stop your shoes from “eating” your socks).
Today, the playtesters are picking our favorite pro outfits of the year. In no particular order, here are our favorites from the WTA (in case you missed it, we picked our favorite men’s outfits, too):

Karly: ”Ana Ivanovic, Australian Open (adidas Spring adizero Dress). Not only were the colors great and really popped, but my favorite was mesh backing and striping that made this dress better than the rest. It’s all about the attention to details that made this outfit a hit!
Andy also chose the same dress: “Ivanovic is always looking good, but these colors contrasted well with the Rod Laver Arena court, helping her take down the No. 1 seed, Serena Williams.”

Chris: ”Best pro outfit ATP Tie: Nicolas Almagro and Potito Starace as they wore almost identical Lotto apparel at the Montecarlo Rolex Masters. Classic and clean looking white crew with light blue accents paired with a light blue short. This outfit popped against the clay court backdrop yet looked classy and sporty.”
