Britney Spears has always been ahead of one of this year’s biggest footwear trends: “ugly” sandals.

Considered traditionally “ugly” in the world of fashion, the singer’s sandals added her a growing list of stars — including Katie Holmes, Kendall Jenner and Chris Pine — who are trading out their chic footwear for more sport-style or orthopedic-inspired sandals from brands like Birkenstock, Teva, Prada and more.

Tournament organizers also attempt to build their own large team each year when they assemble volunteers to help make their event run smoothly. Sometimes teams within the larger group even add their own unique stamp on a tournament, thanks to extra attention to special details.
