When will Nike release this hat- they used to issue this hat in the early 2000's it's a sphere material and in my opinion much better then feather lite?

Thank you

Yeah TW sold them in winter of '05. I have the black with gold hat (that I'm getting rid of) that federer wore during practice and while he was getting interviewed.

Once in a while you'll see them on the European tennis retail sites.

Man they need to sell this again= granted the RF hats work well- but one doesn't want to wear them all the time. The Sphere hat is not only light- but it absorbs sweat better then any hat out there- where the Feather lights can actually make your head feel more like a dutch oven- the Sphere breaths like linen!!! Honestly who decided to stop selling this hat= it's a GOAT

The facade of the issue is "it's just a hat." The underlying principle of it is that AA, the actual personal behind the name, comes off as a complete jerk to first do the "na na na, look at what I got!" and then profit from it, and STILL not foster the community information-sharing that we're here for.

And I have that hat, so i'm not really angry that I don't have one or anything. I just got mine a while ago and don't have the style numbers which CAN help someone locate it through NikeFind (if it's publicly available at a Factory Store or a NikeTown).

It's not on the hat itself, but the tag that was attached. The seller who sold it to me ripped off the # so no one else could find it (very selfish of him).

I called Nike a few days ago and mentioned there is a market for this hat that Berdych and some other touring pros wear. The CS said he'd pass the feedback to the buyers. Doubt we'll ever see anything come of my one call... but if we ALL call Nike... they might actually realize we want the freakin' hats!

geeeez Gino, i wasnt very selfish when you wrote to me that you havent enough money to buy the hat and if i can give you a lower price, of course i did it or the time you also ask for the style number and told me that you werent going to put it on the board, sometimes its better dont say anything at all.

That's not the case at all. I politely emailed you for the style number because I really loved the hat. You didn't reply to that email... I don't want to argue, you are a great buyer and I just wish you would help us out. Giving a style number is not a big deal AA.

I got the hat today, thanks!!


for those who would like to know, this hat is not made for those with any size head at all; I never thought I had a huge head but, this hat is wearable for me but snug at as far out as I can adjust the velcro. It is on the shallow side too (rides kind of high on my head). I like the style of this hat but I like the fit of the RF Hybrid and the Feather Light hats better.

anyone know where to get Isner's hat that he wore on the Today show interview the day after his marathon match at Wimbledon? Can't find a picture but it is black, looks like cotton twill, with a frayed nike rectangle patch on the front. It's a casual hat, not a moisture wicking or perfromance material hat.

I saw Rogers cup on TV today and both nalbandian and fed coach wore the hat.
Nalbandian coach wore brown with white swoosh and fed coach wore white with brown swoosh.
The color theme looks similar to fed short.
Hope Nike will release those hats.
Does anyone know that there is Nike booth at Rogers cup?

It seems like this is the only hat that Nike pro's and people in their box are wearing at the US Open.

Anyone hear anything about Nike selling it to the public.

I just can't stand the shape of the featherlight hat, and it sticks up too high on my head. I have a feeling that the way it sits is the reason pro's don't wear the featherlight on court.

maybe 10ace gave us wrong color code by mistake:confused:
103 is old hat color code and 106 (or 105) is for the us open.
I assume that 103 might be more white than 106.....
I will get us open hats next week so I might be able to find differences.

No typo. Color codes are right. US open hats are remanufacturing hats so they decided to change colors a little bit.
Those hats are overstock items (I don't think there is more hats at MD store)

I don't think any hats left at the store by now
Actually I ordered two hats on Wed. Their description of hat was not clear at that time because I was one of the first person to order the hats. I tried to wait to post here because I was not sure It will be same hats we were talking about such a long time ^_^ but someone posted information before me. When I called them they said they don't have black color but actually, they had the black color hat.... Anyway, I will have most of hats though ^_^.
Did you receive hats from joeldali and nike yet?
If so can you compare color differences between US open grey hat and charcoal hat? Charcoal hat matches with 09 AO fed charcoal color polo.

I just saw this and checked the white one with black swoosh it's 106 My bad on the typo.

I put it up next to the white Nike sphere with black swoosh I got years ago and the us open swoosh looks more navy/obsidian then black. Could be it still has the sheen on the thread reflecting the light more so then the washed out black swoosh old one.

Is there really a difference between the charcoal and the grey from the US Open?

I will post pics of all of them for you guys.

I think it should be a little different because the color code is 033 for charcoal and 040 for the us open grey.

I got the hat today, thanks!!


for those who would like to know, this hat is not made for those with any size head at all; I never thought I had a huge head but, this hat is wearable for me but snug at as far out as I can adjust the velcro. It is on the shallow side too (rides kind of high on my head). I like the style of this hat but I like the fit of the RF Hybrid and the Feather Light hats better.

Nike Sphere Isner/Berdych hat is the GHOAT, hands down! Your black sphere hat is on the way to you Priority Mail today JoelDali.

I got my hats from Hagerstown MD yesterday, popped on a black one, and left it on all day. So light and comfy....

so why do you like these hats now after not liking them previously?

09-14-2010, 03:38 PM

each hat has a slightly different fit. The one I had tried previously and sold to Gino was slightly a bit too snug.
Out of the 10 I received from Hagerstown, I found 3 that were roomier for some reason, and they fit me fine. I guess kind of like shoes, each one can vary slightly in size......sometimes a size 11 shoe will fit fine for me and another of the same shoe, same size will be too small. I just keep trying till I find the right fit. I kept the 3 best fitting (for me) of the 10 I got- 1 black, 1 white, and 1 grey. The grey one is the roomiest of all of them. The 3 that I kept fit me great.

Hcb,

You are totally correct my friend. The hat you sold to me is very different from the new trend hat. It is more "fitted" than these new trend hats, which are very flexible. The material on the hat you sold me is thicker and more sphere-like.

The sphere dry hats from 2006 are totally different from trend hats of 2010 just as a future reference for everyone.

it's more like fitting issue and material issue.
both featherlight and sphere hats are excellent GOAT.

it's personal preferences.
I still like featherlight hat material because it dries quicker than sphere hat.
as far as fitting I prefer sphere hat.
extreme hot weather, I prefer featherlight hat.
I don't need big head size so sphere hat fits much better and bill is a little small which I like because I wear hats backwards.

I got the hats from Joeldali today but I think the fit and material is exact same.
for the white color hats (103 and 106), almost impossible to differentiate between two. 106 might be extremely slightly whiter than 103 but it's just same color.
033 charcoal and 040 Nano gray is different though.

Having worn my new Sphere hat for 3 days now, the thought ocurred to me that the great unique thing about this hat is that it fits like a second skin on my head, but ISN'T TIGHT. It just comfortably sits on my head like a feather; the band around the inside doesn't dig in and leave an impression on my forehead like other hats (including the Featherlights and RF hybrids). Anyone who hasn't tried one just would not understand........it truly is a marvel of hat engineering.

I am a big fan of featherlight hat and I like both hats.
Trend Woven Cap (Actual name) might not be perfect for everyone because of the hat shape. if someone has a rounded big head, might look strange.
Also extreme hot weather condition, I prefer featherlight hats because it dries quicker than a trend woven cap. I wear hats backward so I like a little short bill of Trend woven cap.

I assume nike tried to push this cap both tennis and aerobic then sales were poor so decided to discontinue (maybe the hat was too expensive in 2005??? TW sell it for $24....if you consider a inflation, nowadays, it will be around $27 for a hat.) I still think featherlight hats are most popular (selling) hat from Nike's hat/cap line.

I drew the #1 seed in a tourney in the second round. I just pleaded to not go down in bagels being the guy was a 5.5.

I wore the Isner grey and lost 1 and 2.

I do attribute those 3 games and the 4 or 5 spectacular shots I hit to the Isner sphere hat.

It gave me a certain comfort on a mildly hot and windy day that I would not have had with the RF or a normal dry fit.

This hat has done me well. I'm glad this thread came into being or I suspect I woulda been double bageled for sure today.

I have yet to wear them for a match, but just trying them on they feel wonderful. I have never felt this way about a hat before. It is almost like nothing is there. Plus, they have a great distinctive look. The black and charcoal ones are especially sharp.

I just wish Nike had sent me a white/grey swoosh hat like they were supposed to, instead of 2 white/black swoosh hats.

If you recall Nike introduced it's sphere fabric in the 90's, this was when I purchased the first of my "Nike sphere dry" hats- white with black swoosh. I became such a fan of the sphere fabric, for its many qualities, that I began purchasing their workout shirts- seemed to never touch my skin when filled with sweat. Soon Nike made this fabric thinner and less dense and called it Nike Fit Dry.

In the early 2000's Nike released the Nike sphere hat again- this time tennis warehouse carried it. I think they called it a baseball cap or something odd. What you refer to "trend woven" a name Adidas carries too. Since the inception of the hat named Nike sphere- It shall remain in my mind as such.

Feather light replaced it for the fabric is easier to make than "sphere" and it's cheaper.

Just received the three white/charcoal Sphere hats I ordered from MD.

Upon first glance, I thought the charcoal was black, but it's just a really dark shade.

They do have a tiny bit more room than the black/lime from the US Open, but not that much. The hat comes down slightly more closer to my ears. I do think that they have a better brim than the one from the Open. Seems more firm, with a better shape.

Overall I'm definitely happy with them. At $7.99, you can't beat that deal.

Hopefully Nike just brings the hat back for good. It would be nice to know that they are readily available when needed.

Played 3 sets in my black one last night, they feel so good on zee head.

I think I figured out the secret for WHY these hats "feel so good on zee head"

It's the mesh inserts on the top of the hat from the button on top of the hat that go down the sides toward your ears. Those mesh pieces are like a knit fabric that has some stretch, so the hat flexes and stretches slightly when you put it on. A marvel of hat design!! That combined with the lightweight sphere fabric makes it so light and comfortable you forget you have it on. This hat SHOULD have been called the "Featherlight" instead of those other hats!

JoelDali
09-27-2010, 07:22 AM
Wow, I did the same thing yesterday while watching illegal Chinatown DVDs on the couch after 3 sets in the AM.

I inspected the Isner grey and noticed the cushiony material in each of the sphereical dome structures that circumfrancingly encases the hat. When worn, it creates an appealing sensation on the head like a woman's hand on your thigh, but non creepily.

The Isner Berdich hat is near the top of favorite gear. A must have for the backwards hat wearing tennis pshychoidals of the world.

Undisputed GHOAT.

I too was skeptical my friend until the wondrous design encased my fat ugly dome in a cocoon of breathtaking design...it is the most form-fitting cap ever made, curving to match even the most lopsided of melons...it also breathes like the lungs of an opera soprano hitting true high "C" and breaking champagne glasses throughout the audience...it also is the essence of low maintenance, needing only a quick wash, rinse and hang dry overnight in the shower. So stay sweaty my friend and when you domecover, say GHOAT...Nike for perfection.

The hat literally molds to your head the flexible joints allow an effortless fit(you and the hat become one), and the fabric is the best fabric in the universe- sweat absorption is like a sponge allowing a desert to form on your brow- when the wind blows the microscopic entry holes seep in gods breath allowing your dome to cool off. Knowing full well the greatness that is the original Nike sphere hat, having lost one a decade ago- let me worn those- care for it, wash it by hand! Hang dry, do not drive with the windows open- never place it down on a change over- loosing even one, leaves an open wound in your subconscious that never goes away. Do this and it will protect you for years to come.

Gotta feed the second-longest-running GHOATthread (behind Pope Joel's original masterpiece)...it feels like the Great Schism of Roman Catholic/Greek Orthodox days. GHOATworshipping was attempted at Orlando's Premium Outlet Knike store to no avail. Some guy on staff offered me a job due to my devout knowledge of the greatest product the Oregonian Knikesters ever made. I told him I wasn't interested in working for a company unwilling to stock and sell what they can design and manufacture. The GHOATquest continues!

Yeah, GHOATs became hard to find after craze stirred up by the GR&RBand and their album, "Goat's Head Soup".

Seriously, this next two weeks might net a GHOAT or two at Wimby. I would imagine the limitation will be "white only" on any tourney edition GHOATs. Probably have the red hot chili pepper swoosh. Now, if Fed gets a sudden case of alopecia, we know Phil Knike will rush in some GHOATs with a green swoosh to promote Oregon Ducks athletics and match Fed's new duds. BTW, I like the shirt...very understated with the skinny pipings.

The top photo of Berd shows the side panel which is quite more translucent than featherlite material. The biggest drawback to FLs has always been their lack of "breathability", which would be addressed by the construction shown in his new lid. Also, I have never owned a FL with a "shaded" bill. They are all same color top and bottom.

Mind you a great Hat such as the GHOAT is fantastic for those who know it- but its really a blimp in Nike's bottom line. I have been an avid fan for a decade- and find it to be the best sweat absorbing, breathing hat out there.

Congrats on the potential job at the Nike Factory Outlet- in these times any job is a bonus.

Yeah, I realize a cap is not high on their priority list because $$$ to be made is not "blimp-size". It would be nice if someone can clear up the issue. I wear my Workhorse GHOAT daily and he needs some reinforcements in non-B&W colors. F-Lite is not an option. Maybe UnderArmor or Yonex are my next options if Knike can't muster up more GHOATs.

Just got my GHOAT in the mail. The bill of the cap is flimsier than I imagined but it's still a bamf when worn backwards.

Looks like isner's hat has same material but there is a grey color under the bill. Camera tried closed up several times and camera zoom catches the material (dotted like pattern).

I have one of these white GHOATS in my collection...with the gray under the bill.
it's the GOAT of the GHOATS....

With the grey under the bill? Or is it white on the underside of the bill?

Mine is all white even under the bill with a grey swoosh.

Ahhh....therein lies the difference. The white that has the GREY under the bill is one of the rarest of the GHOAT species, right up there with the yellow, Photo blue and white with red swoosh GHOATS.

Thread resurrection...almost! Why did they have to nuke the original????

Watching the Isner/Djokovic SF Saturday made me sure the GHOAT is truly TBE...Isner was soaking that inferior Lacoste lid! Djok, on the other hand, looked pretty dry above the ears. Has anyone tried out the Uniqlo caps? It looks nice!
