Spain’s Rafael Nadal will take the court in Paris later this month seeking an unprecedented 7th French Open Title, which would solidify his legacy as the greatest clay court player of all-time. For Rafa’s run, Nike Tennis has supplied him with a new collection of Roland Garros-inspired footwear and apparel, including this new make-up of his Air Max Courtballistec 4.3 signature shoe.
Falling in line with Rafa’s Paris look, this Courtballistec 4.3 features a white synthetic and mesh base for enhanced breathability and comfort. Scarlet Red DragOn 2x material at the toe adds durability, flexibility and support. Red also works the inner lining, laces and Max Air window surround, while anthracite handles paneling along the sides. Extra Durable Rubber on the outsole ensures long-lasting on-court support.
