NikeCourt in New York

With the 2015 US Open beginning next week here in New York, NikeCourt have released a complete day-to-night footwear and apparel solutions- designed for practice, on-court performance and off-court style.

The main crux of the collection is connection through print and colour. Accents of Hot Lava and sweeping camouflage can be found throughout. Each product is informed by player insights and inspired by player lifestyles.


NikeCourt’s practice apparel is designed to equip players for intense training sessions.

Grigor Dimitrov will prepare for his matches in the NikeCourt Logo Crew and Nike Gladiator 9” Short. The crew features a poly-cotton fabric for a soft feel and lower shoulder seams offer a smooth fit. The short’s Nike Dri-FIT fabric helps keep him cool and comfortable.

On-Court Night Looks

NikeCourt’s on-court night clothing features contrasting colours and patterns- inspired the grit of New York City set against the celebrity glamour of the tournament.

Rafa Nadal will take the court in the Nike Premier Rafa Crew and Nike Gladiator 7” Printed Short. The top features Nike Dri-FIT fabric, which helps keep him cool and comfortable. Lower shoulder seams provide a smooth fit. The short employs Nike Dri-FIT fabric and features a drawcord for a custom fit.

Grigor Dimitrov will pair the Nike Advantage Breathe Polo with the Nike Gladiator Breathe 11” Short. The polo features all-over perforated Dri-FIT fabric, which delivers ventilated comfort to help keep players cool during the heat of New York nights. The dropped back hem provides additional coverage. The short’s perforated mesh allows for a base layer, worn underneath, to provide a pop of color. Nike Dri-FIT fabric aids moisture management.

Off-Court Sport Style

The NikeCourt Bomber Jacket is inspired by pre-match warm-up jackets. It features lightweight nylon fabric, a stretchy collar and cuffs for comfort and style.

The NikeCourt Fleece Crew combines soft French terry fabric with modern details such as a full-side zip and asymmetric hem. The camouflage print connects to the on-court night looks for the tournament.
