With Wimbledon reaching fever pitch, we’ve been bitten by the sporty little bug and the schuh HQ office chat is frequently revolving around the tournament. With us being obsessed with shoes, we’ve been making quite a racket about our favourite tennis shoes. Off the court stylin’ has never been so easy, so why not check out some of the tennis shoes we’ll be serving up during the Wimbledon Championship.
Wimbledon is pretty much the oldest tennis tournament in the world and it’s pretentiously known for the thousands of strawberry-eating-oohing-and-aahing-spectators, and of course, its strict all-white dress code for the competitors. The mono white look has never been hotter and we predict that S/S ’16, or for at least the next two weeks of the tournament, clean whites will be at an advantage, stepping away from the chunky runners and into some sleek simple silhouettes.
With the Wimbledon qualifying underway; you’re probably already glued to the action. So you’re bound to have witnessed the classic adidas Stan Smith – it’s undeniably the silhouette to be seen in.
Taking five seconds to tie your laces could potentially mean missing the most important serve of the match, with that in mind the Stan Smith Comfort will make sure you never miss a back-swing.
The Superga 2750 Leather creates a super slim, feminine aesthetic. This clean white leather style is the perfect plimsoll – imagine them with a white tennis skirt and tanned pins? Perfection.
The Nike Tennis Classic – why did we pick this one? The clue is in the name and the metallic gold detailing is pretty much the deciding point, and it puts a little spin on the off the court stylin’.
There are definitely many sporting legends among the Wimbledon Championships but there’s none quite like the ellesse Anzia. This 90s throwback smashes through qualifying and straight into the final. Take that, ball-boy.
Keep your eyes peeled for more coming later in the season as S/S ‘16 – off the court stylin’ is here to stay. In the meantime, shop our wide range of men’s and women’s tennis shoes.
