I believe men are as interested in tennis fashion as women, they just aren’t so likely to admit it (my partner being one of them!). The majority of my blog posts so far have been focused towards women like myself, who are interested in getting fit, playing tennis and looking good in the process. But I have quite a few male tennis players following me on Instagram and so I thought I would write a few fashion articles for them, whether they think they are interested or not! I have decided to start with a piece of tennis apparel that all male tennis players will undoubtedly agree they need: tennis shoes (or ‘kicks’ if we want to get stylish about it).
There is no disputing the importance of a good pair of tennis shoes that allow you to do fast footwork on the tennis court whilst avoiding injuries at the same time, but function and fashion don’t have to be mutually exclusive. As I have no personal experience with men’s tennis shoes, the following picks have been put together thanks to positive feedback on their performance from my partner and one of my followers on Instagram (catching_details). Thanks guys! I have just selected the colours that I think look the best.
Have you ever tried out these shoes on the tennis court? If so, let us know how you thought they performed, or recommend another pair of tennis kicks (for men or women!), in the comments below.
