Pass the strawberries and cream – Wimbledon has begun!
With Wimbledon in full swing (pardon the pun), it seems respectful to honour the oldest tennis tournament in the world with a Tennis Whites Edit showcasing the whitest and brightest of on and off-court footwear.
It is a strong tradition for the grass courts to only be accompanied by players wearing white; a protocol dating back to as far as the 1800s. Rumour has it that the sight of sweat through coloured clothing was noted as improper, and from this point onward ‘tennis whites’ became an institution. A classy choice!
With such a serious game, comes such serious rules. For example:
- Strips of colour can only be a centimetre wide.
- White is white. No cream or off-white attire is acceptable.
Although at AllSole we aren’t that particular, we do have some bright white shoes you need to know about, for both the on-court player and spectator.
Asics, Lacoste and Diesel make up or Men’s On-Court picks. Clean designs, rubber soles and easy fasteners – what more could a tennis player want? For anyone keen to take up tennis, see the full AllSole range.
