Nike iD perhaps? You too can have the same customization for $10 more.

TTC showed the Nike house in Miami for Nasdaq 100 where the endorsed players get their stuff - they get a big duffle bags 5 times a year. Shoes are customized, not just Nike ID. The same shoe will have a different sole for the clay season, maybe a different insole etc. The tag on Federer' shoe says 'FEDERER' not 'roger federer' btw.

Most football (soccer to you US guys) have totally customized football boots, (exact shape to fit their foot perfectly), you can actually have this done for about £300 with Adidas boots!
So it wouldn't surprise me if the top tennis pro's had totally custom shoes aswell, for optimum performance!

The shoe is the only thing that touches the ground!
