The tennis holiday gift guide: All the best women's shoes and apparel
High performance and winning styles for the tennis player on your holiday gift list.
Published Nov 27, 2023
'Tis the season to give the tennis fan in your life the perfect gift. For the next few weeks, we're pulling together a short list of our favorites, from on-court gear and apparel, to off-court accessories.
Ace The Moon Tennis Score Tube Sweatpants
Anyone who’s played in tournament and club matches will recognize the net post score tube. These unisex sweats provide a super cozy take on this gameday staple. Made in Los Angeles with buttery soft, 100% cotton, they are perfect to layer over shorts or a skirt before a match, or simply to lounge around the house. Those looking to complete the head-to-toe look can pick up the matching crewneck.
Adidas Ubersonic 4.1
The Ubersonic 4.1 provides some needed polish to the outgoing Ubersonic 4. The core elements of the previous model are there, but small tweaks provide a marked improvement in overall performance. Most notably, the cut has been restructured to offer a narrower and more supportive fit. The lacing system has also been fine-tuned for better security and comfort. Additional fortification around the upper makes it sturdier and more durable. And it still manages to remain lightweight and speedy around the court.
Fila Mondo Forza
The Mondo Forza is an entirely new model from Fila. For its 50th anniversary in tennis, the brand created a high-performance shoe built to handle the rigors of aggressive baseline play. Designers sought a minimalist construction with a blend of natural and recycled materials for a streamlined profile that promotes fast footwork. This includes a leno weave mesh upper and a midsole wood-based support plate. A key element is the innovative split-surface outsole that maximizes the balance between traction and transition. The result is a highly stable and comfortable shoe that fosters swift and confident movement.
Lucky in Love Fly Racerback Tank
The jersey fabric in this sporty tank is a combination of polyester and Lycra cut for a tailored fit. The racerback design flatters as it adds greater breathability. A built-in bra lends support and shape, while the chevron color-blocking with neon accents grabs attention.
Mizuno Wave Enforce Tour
For many, Mizuno may still be thought of as a running brand, but as the Wave Enforce Tour proves, it’s a legitimate tennis player. Launched in April, the brand-new model is equipped with Mizuno Enerzy throughout the footbed, giving the shoe a plush ride and high energy return on quick transitions. The Dyna-Heel Lock is an integrated lacing system that keeps foot and shoe in constant alignment during movement. And the DuRubber outrigger outsole provides a powerful base for rotational movement, and comes with a six-month warranty.
Nike Heritage French Terry Tennis Pants
When weather demands an extra layer, these cushy and plush sweats serve as an ideal cover. Infused with Dri-Fit technology, it keeps perspiration at bay and the pants from sagging. The classic stripe taping on the elastic waistband adds both a touch of style and a comfortable fit. The tapered cut finishes with a zippered ankle to ease removal, even over a pair of shoes. It comes in three color choices: Diffused Blue (pictured), Noble Red and White.
Tnuck Sport White and Navy Emma Tennis Dress
Tuckernuck offers a boutique shopping experience online. The Washington DC-based retailer sells its own line of clothing, as well as handpicked favorites from nearly 300 other labels. This vintage-inspired mini-length, sleeveless dress is made with quick-dry, stretch performance fabric. The swing silhouette and boxy shape afford plenty of freedom of movement so strokes are never constricted. The mandarin collar with blue piping gives it a classic appeal that looks the part on and off the court.
Vuori Courtside Track Jacket
Go to and from the court in style with this versatile and sporty top. Made from mostly recycled material, the moisture-wicking performance stretch fabric stays dry as it keeps you warm during or after play. Welt pockets add utility and refinement to the monochromatic look. The jacket comes in Grass (shown) and Black.
Wilson Midtown Skirt
Made of an anti-odor, quick-drying fabric, this piece combines a seamless inner short with a pleated skirt overlay. A tiered, compression waistband provides support, coverage and an adaptable fit. The inner short comes down to the upper thigh and has a pocket to store a ball, smartphone or other valuables. Shown here in Classic Navy, it comes in 11 other color options.
