CONTEST IS CLOSED – A WINNER HAS BEEN SELECTED (pictures to come)
I can’t believe that it’s that time already, it’s the time where I give away some free tennis stuff to one lucky reader! If you remember, I do contests for every major tennis tournament (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open), last time around one lucky winner won a brand new 2012 Wilson BLX ProStaff Six.One 90 (Roger Federer’s tennis racquet of choice).
For the 2012 French Open, I have been thinking what to offer my favorite people…I decided on a pair of new Nike tennis shoes! Yep, Nike tennis shoes…for free!
Which Nike tennis shoes are going to be given away you ask? Well, for the men I will be offering 2012 Nike Vapor 9 Tour SL Blue Soar or in Anthracite:
The shoe of choice for Roger Federer, the Lunar Vapor 9 Tour offers a new look and feel while maintaining the Vapor line’s integrity with a light weight, supportive fit for high level performance. Well known Nike designer, Tinker Hatfield (google it), was lead designer for this latest version of Vapor. Designed with running in mind, Nike incorporates Adaptive Fit technology for the ultimate in fit, optimizing foot stability in a light weight fashion while increasing forefoot flexibility.
A Cushlon midsole with Zoom Air in the heel provide comfortable cushion while keeping a low to the ground feel. The XDR outsole with herringbone pattern keeps traction and durability at a performance level for all court surfaces. Flex grooves in the outsole help promote faster movement, allowing shoe flexion in conjunction with the feet while aiding in greater court surface traction for maximum tack. This improved Vapor continues its heritage by offering the ultimate in lightweight comfortable performance.
Now, I can’t just offer a free pair of Nike tennis shoes for only the men, I am also be including the lovely tennis ladies of the world, in this contest, I will also be offering a pair of 2012 Nike Lunar Speed 3 White/Scarlet tennis shoes! This is the shoe of choice for Maria Sharapova, so you know it’s a good choice.
It’s all about moving quickly on court as Nike continues its Lunar series for women with the Lunar Speed 3. Built with an internal fit system that hugs the foot, the shoe provides an exceptional fit, and a carbon fiber shank provides lightweight support. Additional support is provided by the nylon wires of the Flywire system in the upper. Add those aspects to an extremely low-to-the-ground ride from the Lunarlon cushioning, and this shoe delivers speed on the court. This version features a more accomodating fit than previous versions with a widened forefoot and deeper toebox. Always stylish, the Lunar Speed 3 will appeal to the competitive player who craves the ultimate in lightweight performance.
Now for all the juicy detail for winning these awesome Nike tennis shoes; this contest starts May 2nd, 2012 and will continue through to the end of the French Open (June 10th, 2012), only 1 winner will be selected (woman or man, NOT one of each). I will contact the winner privately and will announce the winner after I have received confirmation of that winner. Winner will have 24 hours to respond to my email, if no response received within 24 hours, another winner will be selected. If an international winner is selected, that winner agrees to pay for international shipping (sorry, I’m not made of money!).
