The secret is finally out of the bag.
When @NikeTennis tweeted the pic below, Roger Federer fans (myself included) were certain it would be another awesome shoe for the Swiss Maestro.
So today, right after Federer's convincing win over Phillip Kohlschreiber, Nike finally unveiled the Limited Edition Zoom Vapor Tour 9 in full.
Say hello to the Savile Row version of one of the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn:
Below is the press release from www.nikeinc.com
Inspired by Roger Federer's signature style both on and off the court, the new "Savile Row" Zoom Vapor 9 Tour LE combines innovative materials with time-honored craftsmanship.
The Zoom Vapor 9 Tour has been Roger's shoe of choice for over a year and this limited edition version is an homage to the exquisite craftsmanship of Savile Row. The shoe was specially created for Roger to wear during the year end finals in London.
The "Savile Row" Zoom Vapor 9 Tour LE resembles a classic English brogue with a detailed pattern of perforations on the upper and a hierarchy of color that conveys the subtle elegance that is one of the hallmarks of Savile Row tradition. The shoe also comes with a high quality RF branded shoe bag.
Additional custom elements of the "Savile Row" shoe are a special RF logo on the tongue and uniquely patterned synthetic upper that have both been shaped using high pressure and heat to retain definition.
The "Savile Row" Zoom Vapor 9 Tour LE uses flat laces instead of the usual oval ones and all the external durability elements that are typically seen on a Nike high performance tennis shoe have been replaced by brouging more often seen on a gentleman's dress shoe.Simply put, it is one shoe I can't allow myself not to get.
