Wimbledon Whites

 
NIKECOURT FLARE
CLICK ABOVE TO SHOP

 
The Wimbledon tennis tournament is one of the oldest sporting events in the world, first played in 1887. It is the third of the Grand Slam events and the only major still played on grass. When the tournament commences Monday, all players will step on to the court in white, as they have done for more than 125 years, adhering the strict traditional dress code of The All England Club. This year’s tournament will be whiter than ever with accent colors being limited to no more than 1 centimeter of trim.

Now we think tennis whites are one of the chicest looks in sport, and no matter the tournament have a winning style that can’t be beat. While we may be bending the rules a little in terms of this year’s restrictions, below are a few of our favorite tennis whites, a number of which will be making their debut on the grass courts of Wimbledon this week.

ABOVE:  NIKECOURT FLARE $200. Look for #1 seed Serena Williams to be sporting this revolutionary new tennis shoe from Nike at Wimbledon this week. It’s the first on-court shoe engineered specifically for this great champion. Offering lightweight stability in a more minimal, low-profile shoe, the extended stretch collar gives streamlined support, extra-durable rubber outsole provides more traction, and mesh overlays add breathability and comfort.

Salt. X Aether

 

 
Adventure seekers rejoice! Two very Style of Sport brands, Salt Optics and Aether Outerwear, have joined forces to create a limited edition ultimate function-equals-style sunglass. The collaboration’s two styles, the SCOUT and the EXPLORER, were created with the motorcycle rider in mind, but are sleek enough to be worn by anyone, anytime. These SALT + AETHER glasses have been constructed to deliver optical clarity when engaging in fast, in-your-face activities. And did we mention they are unisex?

Made from lightweight, beta-titanium frames with nearly unbreakable temples, the collection offers two lens options, both polarized to block glare. The first lens option also includes a photochromic filter that automatically adjusts to suit the light conditions. The second includes a scratch-proof mirror coating that increases glare blockage. Both lenses are available in a total of four colorways. Windshields with an extended top frame, inspried by classic glacier glasses, control wind-flow and peripheral sun, and reduce these distracting elements by more than eighty percent.

Whatever your choice of outdoor adventure may be, these shades have got your eyes covered in style!

Good Vibrations

 

HYPERICE VYPER FOAM ROLLER

The benefits of foam rolling have been well documented for increased flexibility and range of motion; faster muscle recovery; better circulation; and thus improved overall sports performance. The latest evolution of the foam roller adds vibration therapy into the mix, another established recovery technique, and takes the foam roller to a whole new level.

The HyperIce Vyper is the first high intensity vibrating fitness roller. Word is Kobe Bryant was using a foam roller on a Power Plate, the full body vibration machine, which inspired the idea. The Vyper has 3 speeds of vibration powered by a rechargeable 16.8 Lithium Ion battery. Vibration Therapy delivers high frequency oscillations that force muscles to rapidly contract and relax. While foam rollers are the go to recovery tool, adding vibration with the intensity and frequency of the Vyper allows the therapeutic benefits to permeate deeper.

HyperIce is recognized for creating a new generation of wearable icepacks that have become post-workout recovery favorites for such high-profile athletes as Lindsay Vonn, Blake Griffin, and Hope Solo. The Vyper is their second product and is being utilized used by professional and everyday athletes alike to warm up and recover from training and competition.
