2012 Women’s Singles champion Maria Sharapova will compete in Paris later this month wearing a new custom Nike Tennis outfit and footwear. Designed to showcase her characteristic on-court style, the Nike Premier Maria Dress and personally-customized Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour iD shoes will deliver comfort, ventilation and confidence as Sharapova steps onto the clay in one of the world’s toughest tournaments. Designed with Dri-FIT technology, the Nike Premier Maria Dress will keep Sharapova cool and dry whatever the conditions in Paris. “When you’re out there competing, you want to feel cool as much as you can,” Sharapova says of the design. “The material in the dress makes it very breathable and easy to move around in.” With its flattering princess seams and discreet Inner Definition Bra, the dress offers a supportive, supremely comfortable fit. Sharapova pairs her dress with the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour tennis shoe, which she personally customized using NIKEiD. Combining the lightweight support of a running shoe with the durable foot-frame needed for quick on-court turns, the Vapor 9 iD now offers a choice of outsoles to facilitate maximum performance on distinct surfaces: hard, grass or clay courts. Sharapova’s NIKEiD design complements her dress and is inspired by global street style. Her chosen colorway is a palette of sophisticated neutrals, with a pop of color on the Swoosh — a nod to the effortless chic of Parisian women. “I travel around the world and I’m always inspired by the way women from different countries carry themselves and put together an outfit,” Sharapova says. “Paris is such a unique city… beautiful, with so much attitude and style.” Off-court, Sharapova will wear the classic Nike Air Max 1, which she personalized with the distinctive floral Pepper print from the Liberty of London and NIKEiD collection. She’ll also rock the Free 3.0 Hybrid of her own NIKEiD design as well. All of Sharapova’s footwear is emblazoned with her personal iD, MS 87. {gallery}2013frenchopensharapova{/gallery} Follow us on Twitter @mobettershoes. You can follow Ian on Twitter @soxanddawgs.
