I am watching the Federer-Soderling match on ESPN 2 currently, and there was a point where Soderling slipped and fell. After this, one of the commentators said that the Adidas grass shoes are having quite a few issues. They also said that Djokovic and Andy Murray have an agreement with Adidas to wear Nike shoes instead. What's up with the shoes Adidas is giving their players??

It looks to me like the little studs that give you grip don't go around the outsoles in their grass shoes.. Hence, less grip.

You are not allowed to have the rubber pimples (little rubber studs) all around the outsoles. There are very specific rules for the little rubber studs that are on the bottom of the grass court shoes.

I think djokovic just does not like the fit of the Barricade II with the grass court bottom.

One thing about grass courts no matter the soles you are going to slip at some point out there especially if it very green.
