It doesn’t smolder quite like Nole‘s photo shoot for the fall/winter 2010 Sergio Tacchini collection, but Potito Starace does his part to sell us the clothing of Italian brand Caster Bleige.
On the court: Potito lost in the first round of the 2010 US Open to 14th seed Nicolas Almagro in four sets. Earlier last month, he made it to the finals of the Croatia Open in Umag before going down 6-4, 6-4 to Juan Carlos Ferrero.

We never tire of hightops, and this one from Le Coq Sportif is no exception. Originally designed by the French company for Chicago Bulls forward-center Joakim Noah back in May, the Joakim Noah Pro Model switches from an all-red shoe to a Frenchified blue/red/white for the replica version, available in limited runs starting this week. The shoes went on sale September 10 at stores in France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal.

And as far as we know, none of the big-time ATPers are playing in LCS right now. Potito Starace was in it for a while, but now he’s wearing clothes from Caster Bleige.
