So I've previewed Rafael Nadal's + Roger Federer's Aussie Open '09 Nike duds so let's check out the tennis fashions adidas has come up with for Novak Djokovic.
The defending champ will be working the Edge Polo in phantom which features a black-on-black shadow graphic design on the front and yellow piping on the neckline. The white version showcases the same shadow design in white-on-white on the front body and adidas' 3-stripe trademark in olive and yellow piping on the sleeves. Both Edge Polos showcase the eagle graphic design on the back top-left shoulder Nole debuted at the Masters Cup:
Nole will most likely pair the Edge Polos with the new Edge Bermudas in phantom + olive which have a combination tie + elastic waist and longer length.
The sexy Serb will tie the whole look together with the new sleek + shiny Edge ClimaCool trainers in metallic silver/black/neon yellow.
As you guys know I'm usually pretty tough on adidas for their lack of design innovation and marketing efforts for their top ballers. But, as of late, the sports brand has turned it up a notch and pulled out some interesting and original gear for both Ana Ivanovic + Nole.
Now, while I may not love the actual clothing every time (love the shirts + shoes here, don't love the curtains-as-shorts moment) I can truly appreciate the effort and innovation that adidas has been showing.
