Original Tennis Logo


Start with a classic: Fila’s low-profile sneakers have a welcome hit of throwback green-and-purple detailing. 


Club C 85


Club Cs are some of the easiest (and most comfortable) sneakers to throw on with jeans all spring long.


Stan Smith Shoes


If you’re not sure where to start—or not sure you can pull off a tennis shoe—Stan Smiths are as universally flattering as a shoe can get. The low-profile white sneaker is truly timeless. 


Carnaby EVO BL 1


Lacoste is the king of blending functional tennis gear and street-friendly clothes. These shoes bridge the gap.  


Gel-Court Speed


For your actual tennis-playing needs, Asics makes a solid option for under $100. You can never go wrong with all white.

Adidas x Pharrell Williams

Tennis Hu


For a sneaker that you can play in—or not—head to Adidas and Pharrell’s Hu line. It’s comfortable and responsive but low-key enough to wear with non-athletic clothes, too. 

Cole Haan

Grandpro Tennis Sneaker


Cole Haan puts its signature responsive sole in a dressed-up sneaker—perfect for when you’re traveling in a more formal setting. 

Nike Tennis

Air Zoom Cage 3 HC Tennis Sneakers


It’s pretty common for tennis clubs to only allow white clothing on the court. What could be more subversive than a hit of bright pink?  


V-10 Sneaker


We’re strong believers that you can never have too many white court sneakers. Swap your beat-up pair for some fresh Vejas. 

Adidas Sport + Stella McCartney

Barricade Boost Tennis Sneakers


You can basically guarantee that anything by Stella McCartney for Adidas is going to be heavy on the stylistic detailing. Of course, the functional aspects—like abrasion-resistant toes and a solid trimming around the footbed—keep focus on utility first.

Polo Ralph Lauren

Price Stripe Tennis Sneaker


For a sneaker that belongs near a beach tennis club, you can never go wrong with Polo. These have a simple but standout suede stripe. 

Hugo Boss

Futurism Tennis Sneaker


You can pull off a black sneaker all year long. A bright white sole helps keep them lighter for spring. 

Junya Watanabe + New Balance

CT400 Sneakers


Junya Watanabe elevates a classic New Balance court sneaker with standout mesh paneling and traction-friendly Vibram soles. 

A.P.C. x Kid Cudi

Tennis Minimal


Yep, you read that right: A.P.C. and Kid Cudi made a tennis sneaker. The off-center graphic is just edgy enough.

Saint Laurent

SL-06 Court Classic Nubuck Sneaker


For the die-hard court fans, head to Saint Laurent. This suede take on the sneaker is about as luxe as it gets.
