Ok so it's a croc, not a gator...but Samantha Stosur is no longer wearing Lacoste. The Brisbane International courts were the first to show off Stosur's switch to ASICS tennis. ”I am really excited to join the ASICS team.," said Stosur. "I’ve actually worn their shoes for a couple of years, so now to be fully kitted out is really exciting for me and I am really looking forward to getting the year started.” Clearly the US Open champ found the pay-out was worth overcoming any superstitions. Le croc WAS good to her. Stosur wears the ASCS Gel Resolution tennis shoe. I haven't seen ASICS dresses in stock anywear yet but they are sure to be hitting retail shortly. I'm looking forward to seeing if they are as comfy as the shoes. Gel inserts maybe for the less endowed? Hah, just kidding ;) A promo video of the announcement is below:
