Wilson is expected to release a special edition Pro Staff cosmetic in collaboration with Ronnie Fieg's Kith brand. Stay tuned for early access and more details.

The racket features a design with golden orange and maroon accents, as well as olive branches on the frame and "racquet crew" on the side. We previously reported on Ugo Humbert using this cosmetic, however the Kith logos were not visible on Humbert's sticks. There are Kith logos throughout on the retail frame, with accents reading "Queens, New York," "Kith & Kin," and "Racquet Crew."
While the confirmed release Kith cosmetic will be on the Pro Staff 97, Humbert endorses the Blade. This begs the question of whether or not Wilson will also release a Kith Blade, or if Wilson will shift Humbert to endorsing the Pro Staff line. If so, it would seem a logical choice, as most of Wilson's top players are endorsing the Blade.
Nick, the son of Roger Federer's former coach Paul Annacone, is actually the Chief Operating Officer at Kith. They have recently been involved with the launch of Roger Federer's new signature On The Roger Pro tennis shoes, and previously the Nike Zoom Vapor Federer x Jordan collaboration. Wilson and Kith recently collaborated on renovating a public NYC court in Kissena Park using recycled tennis balls.
