As action kicks off at one of the biggest stages in tennis—the U.S. Open, of course—Nike has rolled out a limited edition reflective footwear collection to pay tribute to the iconic tournament.
The collection, which includes all-black versions of the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour, the Nike Air Max Courtballistec 4.3, and the Nike Air Max Cage, is featured in a stealth all-black colorway with unique reflective details for a truly bold look.
Unlike in running (where it’s used to help runners be spotted by motorists), reflective material on tennis sneakers is more of an aesthetical element more so than performance. After all, unless you have the luxury of playing under the bright lights, it’s probably not the wisest idea to play tennis in the dark of night. Regardless, the limited edition lineup is quite an impressive one from Nike, especially as far as tennis sneakers go.
If you want to scoop up a pair of the reflective sneakers, don’t hesitate. They’ll only be around for a limited time. Check ‘em out at Nike.
