Coco Gauff is an 18-year-old professional tennis phenom currently ranked eighth worldwide. With her climb towards the top of the international tennis rankings comes her signature performance sneaker: the New Balance Coco CG1. Although it is a shoe specific for another sport, it will still do well on basketball courts because the movements and performance needs are similar. These are viable options for anyone looking for a shoe that will last a long time and perform well outdoors.
