According to New Balance, "The ‘Spooky Season’ colorway of CG1 was inspired by Coco’s favorite holiday, Halloween, incorporating a black on dark purple color scheme for a spooky feel and essence." The ‘Spooky Season’ colorway showcases a moody rendition of Coco’s signature shoe — just in time for Halloween.
As the first signature model of one of the most exciting young stars in tennis, the Coco CG1 is much more than just a shoe with Coco Gauff’s name attached. The Coco CG1 deviates from a traditional simple, low-cut court silhouette.
This shoe from New Balance contains on-court performance features geared towards a fast, power-driven game. From a fashion standpoint, the shoe has style cues that include a basketball vibe and a 1990s throwback design inspiration.
In short, the Coco CG1 is an expression of what makes Coco Gauff unique on and off the tennis court. This Halloween version of the shoe is sure to turn heads.
