Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Russian tennis pro of U.S. Open fame and feature athlete, loves miadidas, and YOU can have them. For FREE. It goes without saying here at Refinery29 that when others are watching athletes rule their sports, we're paying attention to what they're rocking on and off the court. Currently champing the U.S. Open Women's Singles performances to the quarter finals against Serena Willams, Anastasia's fly moves and even more fly gear caught our eyes. With 103 career wins on the court and a habit for painting her nails before games, we're suddenly crushing on Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and seeing tennis chic in full play. Enter our dream combo of the two: Anastasia's fresh kick miadidas design for Adidas sportswear: the Barricade shoes. Embroidered with her nickname, featuring her home country flag, and in her personal favorite color, Anastasia's tennis flair is awesomely reflective of her background. Watching them perform in match after match in her singles events, we can vouch for what these puppies can take and why she loves her sneaks. If these kicks can give Anastasia enough power support to face Williams, we're betting they can support us, too... especially getting to work or the gym on time.
