The Coco CG1 tennis shoes, Gauff’s first signature sneaker, originally designed in a more muted all-white color scheme, have been relaunched in a new “Primary Power” colorway and include shades of red, yellow and blue. The shoes feature a full-length Ndurance outsole for added durability in high-wear areas, NDure upper technology, a non-marking outsole and a herringbone-pattern outsole for added traction during lateral movements.
Influenced by traditional basketball sneaker silhouettes and aesthetic values from the early 90s, the Coco CG1 was created as a reflection of Gauff’s own style identity and her history of top performance within the sport.
In addition to her new shoes, Gauff sported one of two New Balance ensembles. Both looks, designed as a crop top and skirt set, are dyed in bright shades of yellow and navy with reverse contrast stitching on each. The top, adorned with a New Balance logo in the top left corner, features a quarter-sip detail down the center front. Each skirt hem also features an exposed elastic and mesh waistline insert, resulting in a criss-cross pattern across the wearer’s waistline.
Gauff, an American professional tennis player from Atlanta Georgia, has won seven WTA Tour singles titles, including a major at the 2023 U.S. Open and eight doubles titles. The athlete additionally has career-high rankings of world No. 3 in singles and of world No. 1 in doubles by the Women’s Tennis Association.
