Adidas Barricade

Did you watch The Australian Open? Adidas had lots of sunny bright colours for the sunny climes down under. The blue and orange colours of the adidas Melbourne Line were a great match for the blue tennis courts the players were battling it out on.

Players including Angelique Kerber, Dominic Thiem and Sascha Zverev were equipped with brand new Melbourne and Barricade performance wear, designed to maximise performance at the first Grand Slam of 2017.

The super lightweight collection is built to keep athletes cool in the Australian sun. ClimaLite materials encourage quick evaporation of sweat, and Climacool technology enhances the body’s ability to regulate its temperature in the heat of summer.

You’ll look and feel good on court in this tank! The Melbourne Skort is a slim fit, stretchy tennis skort with shorts inside – a perfect fabric for freedom of movement on court. The side-slit adds to the feminine look. We are also stocking the Melbourne Line Skirt Legging and the Melbourne Line Tee.

According to Lotta Jurica Design Director at adidas Tennis, “The conditions of an Australian summer can present a serious barrier to the players performing their best, so we have designed the collection to combat this. The lightweight designs and cooling fabrics will help them keep arrayed with patterns inspired by the local environment, layers symbolizing depth of the ocean and sky combined with sun bleached print, will enable the athletes to deliver stand-out performances whenever they step out on to the court.” Ok, I know we don’t have these heat problems in Ireland, buy hey, we can look good on court anyway! And who knows, maybe they’ll inspire us to play a little better too. Roll on summer league…
