Are you looking for some new shoes and you are a fan of Halloween? Coco Gauff and New Balance have just the shoes for you. And no, I am not getting paid to say this (at least not directly from Coco Gauff or New Balance), but the New Balance Coco CG1 ‘Spooky Season’ look is fire!

The shoes are available to buy on October 6 from the New Balance website and will retail for about $170 (162 in euros). The shoes are black-on-dark purple in color with off-white shoelaces for what New Balance is calling a “spooky” look. And while they might not scare anyone if you wear them, you’ll look pretty awesome still.

Coco Gauff has been a well-known fan of Halloween since the public began to know about her. She seems to dress up every year and posts her looks on social media. The funny thing is since she is only 19 years old she is just past the age where one can go trick-or-treating.

The shoes will be a limited release, it appears, however. So if you want some, you might have to be near your computer on Friday to buy them. Maybe buy me some too, please?

In much sadder news, former WTA No. 1 Arantxa Sanchez Vicario is facing some massive legal issues. In 2009, Sanchez Vicario was fined 5.2 million euros for tax fraud by Spain’s Supreme Court. Few have that kind of money sitting around, so Banque de Luxembourg agreed to cover the fine in return for repayment, including interest.

In 2014, Sanchez Vicario had not repaid the loan, however, and Banque de Luxembourg took her to court and won. But still, Sanchez Vicario, who currently lives in Miami, Florida, did not repay the loan so now she faces criminal proceedings. Sanchez Vicario could face up to two years in prison if found guilty, though a judge could suspend the sentence.

In her 2012 memoir, Sanchez Vicario said her family has somehow squandered the $60 million she earned from playing and sponsors. Her ex-husband, Josep Santacana, is also on trial for the same fraud count and he could face up to four years in prison.
