The adidas Sports Performance and Y-3 labels have joined forces for the first time, for the love of tennis.
The 'Roland Garros' Collection, referencing the French Open's famous court of the same name, was designed to take Y-3’s bold aesthetic and combine it with adidas Sport Performance's breakthrough technology. Included is an all-new adiZero silhouette, along with accompanying apparel and accessories. The sneaker comes in black and white, with a Hawaiian floral print graphic throughout, a Yohji Yamamoto’s signature look, which also ties into Y-3's Spring/Summer 2015 Collection. adidas Tennis stars Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Ana Ivanovic will both sport this line as they compete at the 2015 Roland Garros French Open, which kicks off in late-May. The ball boys and girls will also have the hookup, as they will be wearing the collection throughout the tournament.
The 'Roland Garros' adiZero Y-3 is available now at select adidas Sport Performance and Y-3 retailers worldwide as well as online at both adidas.com and Y-3.com.
