SPOTTED: Michelle Larcher de Brito Upsets Sharapova in the Nike Air Max Cage

Rafael Nadal’s shocking first-round loss to Steve Darcis isn’t the only major upset coming out of Wimbledon. In the second round of women’s singles play, Maria Sharapova has been eliminated by Portugal’s Michelle Larcher de Brito. Sharapova was defeated 6-3, 6-4 after a rough match, requiring medical attention during the second set.

Larcher de Brito laced up the Nike Air Max Cage in the Wimbledon-appropriate white colorway. The Air Max Cage features an injected TPU cage which wraps around the foot for added support. Named as one of Sneaker Report’s ten best clay shoes for women, the Air Max Cage is also suitable for grass court play. You can pick up the same colorway Larcher de Brito wore today for $115.
