Adi Dassler, the founder of adidas, once said, “I understood that equipment can help an athlete perform better.” He wasn’t wrong, and he’d be proud of his legacies latest creation.
Ape to Gentleman were invited to shoot the superb new Adidas tennis range, to be worn by players competing at Wimbledon 2015.
