Nike pulls out all the stops, though we may not be sure what they are exactly, in a flashy new promo clip for its plush-looking Tech Pack, introduced in the brand's Fall 2014 line. The likes of Serena Williams, Li Na, Rafael Nadal, Victoria Azarenka, and Eugenie Bouchard inhabit the gear, joined by such sporting notables as Richard Sherman, Sean Malto, Paul George, and more.

Nowhere to be found (perhaps oddly, perhaps not) is one Maria Sharapova. For all we know, she couldn't fit the shoot into her jam-packed, candy-coated schedule. In any event, Tech Packs are hyped to be "engineered to the exact specifications of championship athletes," which means for a pretty penny you can probably give yourself the appearance and feel of a professional star. After all, walking on court to warm up in confidence-building attire is always the first chance to intimidate and look like you know what you're doing? (Of course, you then have to hit the ball.)

In closing, the Spin will say this: Champions sure look comfortable.
