He's wearing the same jacket he wore in miami, this time in blue. I want it badly.


I reckon he's just wearing the V's for practice.

It's refreshing to see a man who doesn't shave his legs or wear ankle socks nowadays.

He can do anything he wants, he's Roger Federer and Nike will give him all the shoes he wants forever.

I wouldn't be surprised if he wore those in matches, if you look closely you can see that the inside of the shoe has the same matching color (sky blue/aqua/whatever nike calls it) as the bandana and wrist band, and correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that's a new color for Nike this year for summer.

Murray ain't sponsored by nike and he's wearing the VI's

A possibility may be that he announced Monte Carlo participation really last minute so Nike didn't have time to get new shoes for him.

Hmmm I noticed this yesterday when I saw a picture of him in practice. Prolly he's not satisfied with the VI after 3 tournaments? Makes me really wonder though.

When he decide to get in the tornament ?? if you see the draw he have a WC next to his ranking , i don't understand why.. some body can explain that??

Well they've got the pale blue on aswell, so nike must have done them especially. Maybe additional support for the clay?

Well as far as I remember a week before the tournament. MC is a non-mandatory masters so top players are not required to commit to this tournament unlike the other masters event. As far as the WC is concern, Fed did not commit to this event before the start of the season hence he was not included in the main draw. Fed was offered a WC and accepted it so he has WC after his ranking.

I think Nike didn't have the right color way for his clay apparel (VI is Sterling blue) not including FO, this is I think the reason he has to use the Vapor V since it matches his apparel completely.

In that pic, look at Roger's left leg, he's wearing two pairs of socks.

Maybe for added comfort??

topher.juan
04-15-2009, 11:39 AM
looks like the obsidian trim from the RG08 shoes, the light blue inside and heel match the new outfit, so i think it's a newly designed shoe.. I *really* hope they're bringing back the vapor V, i have a pair of the rg08 shoes and they're the best ever.. the VI has had so many problems, why not stop that line and bring back what works?

In all pictures of Fed I've seen of him this year he double-socked his right foot. Probably comfort. Why else?

That would be a marketing nightmare.
The VI definitely looks like it was rushed. The design is cool but functionally I've heard really bad things. Next version should be better.

They have braces for that, like the ones A-Rod wears all the time.

I don't agree. If you'll look at post #23 it is definitely the same including the skyblue trim.

Yes, but his goes over the sock,
Feds is probably an ankle sleeve.

Federer did wear an ankle brace for a few tournaments a few years ago

I think he uses it to prevent foot blisters

Josherer
04-15-2009, 08:17 PM
just for more cushioning...

He doesn't use it for ankle support.

It's ironic that Fed's gone back to the 5's for clay and Murray(with not shoe contract) who uses different shoes for different surfaces is using the vapor 6....to much better effect ;)

Maybe Nike has decided to stop the marketing of the new vapors until they solve this (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=241648&highlight=vapor) problem.

^^^exactly.. maybe it's a marketing nightmare as someone called it to bring back the V's, but I think it's MORE a marketing/product nightmare to keep producing the VI's.. not only the spots but there's clearly performance/pain problems with the shoes.. admit a mistake, issue refunds and go back to what's tried, tested & loved by many.. anyhow, just glad to see roger wearing V's and a little glimmer that maybe they're not dead yet.

Well, just like Nadal, Nike could be advertising that they are wearing the VI's or Ballistics, but in reality, they're wearing their old shoes.

^^I just got a pair really cheap, and have used them 3 times (about 6 hours). Although they are stiff out fo the box and definitely have a break in period (unlike other vapors), I haven't had the red-spot's yet. Will definitely update if there is any change.

For the record, I wouldn't have bought these if I hadn't gotten them so cheap.
