Anyone ever wonder why he only uses the Wimbeldon colorway? Ever since after the FO final where had the standard black/white ones, I don't think we've ever seen him using anything else. Is it because UNIQLO has something to do with it, or just he enjoys using predominantly white shoes?

Now, keep in mind I'm not hating, I just have a wondering mind as to why he would use the simple and clean colorway when there are others out there that can match his outfits.

The same question I was wondering, yeah it's definitely odd, second half of a year he wore only white's, I guess he loves it:), but actually I think Novak is like anti Nike kind of a guy, like he doesn't really care if it's mismatched shoe and clothes colors, I think he personally doesn't care how he looks on the court.He wants to be different, and that's just my opinion:)

In bold would be my guess. The White with black are the only ones I wear too, go well with anything.

Why didn't he do that with the B6 or B5's?
Change of taste?

I don't know him, so can't answer with certainty, but I'd think like most people he probably goes through phases of what he does and doesn't like.

FINALLY!:)He changed his white shoes, if someone could just tell me what's on the rear side of shoe, I don't see it as adidas logo, maybe his personal logo???

Yes,me too:)But look how it's matching his warm up jacket colors, I thing this year UNIQLO is going to design his clothes to match his shoes more often.

It is not good taste that decides what colorway a sponsored pro is using, come on! The white ones are in stock, making money, barricade 7 are still the top barricade model, and he has an individual contract that allows him to use these and those shoes. Money, money, money...

That said, some taste probably kept him from changing the white ones for all the crazy colorways adidas offer each season :)

Wished Uniqlo had chosen something other than yellow for this AO season. Lotto, Adidas, Sharapova... Too many yellows already.

They all have custom shoes made that differ from the stock options available to general public.

Djokovic actually uses the retail B7 besides his own custom insoles and the extra designs he has Adidas put on them.

Looks like we were wrong (for now). Novak's in white/green right now, but I can't say too much yet as we haven't seen the other outfits.

Something like a vintage/classic Fila shirt for Borg.

Small pro shops and locally owned, independent B&M tennis retailers with Adidas accounts would likely disagree with you.
