Yeah, I noticed too.
I think Murray is sponsored by Fred Perry for apperal only. He is free to choose what shoes he wears. I think last year he wore Adidas Barricades during the US Hardcourt season.

Yeah, this has popped up a few times. He has no shoe sponsor, so can wear whatever he likes. Seems to prefer barricades for hardcourt, and nikes for grass and clay

He should try the Feathers on clay

Seems for the more sliding surfaces he wants the lower ride, faster footstep, and easier slide.

For the hardcourt pounding he'd want the protection of the Barricades.

Seems right.

Should try the Jack Purcell, Feathers are soooooooooo narrow.

I like observing the guys with clothing-only sponsorships....to see what kind of shoes they're wearing. You'll see the French Lacoste guys often wearing the Oscillates or Breathe Frees. You know those are the best shoes because those guys aren't getting paid to wear them.

VictorS. full marks for an interesting point, I think the other brand you see palyers wearing freely is those ASICS Gel ones, they seem to turn up on toes too, though they're positively difficult to come across here in Australia for some godforsaken end-of-the-earth reason ;)

Anyone else think it's weird that the no. 3 or 4 tennis player in the world doesn't have a shoe sponsor?

I'm sure people with shoe sponsors get paid way more than the value of the shoes they use.

I read somewhere that it is a condition in his clothing contract with Fred Perry that he cannot have a shoe sponsorship contract.

Weird. As a pro I actually think that'd be better to be paid not to have a sponsorship though because then you'd be free to use whatever equipment actually worked best for you.

yeah, but often companies will specialize equipment for you if you're important enough.
