With the French Open set to begin this week, I wanted to show you guys what world #6 Milos Raonic’s will be wearing. He will be sporting the newly updated New Balance 996v2, a lightweight, stable and durable performance tennis shoe. To keep him light on his feet and cool, Milos will also be rocking the Men’s Tournament Crew (MSRP $64.99) with UV protection and laser-perforated side panels for added breathability with the Men’s Tournament 9″ Short (MSRP $59.99) with lightweight stretch woven fabric for ease of movement.
Heather Watson and Nicole Gibbs, two top female players who are also part of team New Balance, will be competing in the New Balance 996v2 as well, and wearing the latest in women’s tennis gear. The Women’s Challenger Tank (MSRP $44.99) with racer back design provides them with full range of motion on the court and the Women’s Tournament Skort (MSRP $64.99) features a comfortable stretch waist and laser-cut N houndstooth pattern, adding an element of style and breathability.
The New Balance 996v2 features PROBANK stability technology, REVlite midsole foam, full foot TPU cage for supreme flexibility, and NDURE forefoot cage to help athletes own the court for those long matches. The high performance 996v2 is perfect for any player, from those giving it a daily workout, to the weekend warrior. The stylish houndstooth detailed 996v2 come in various colorways and is available to purchase on www.newbalance.com for a suggested retail price of $119.99.
