    We have attested over the years that pros paintjob their rackets to look like the retails ones.
    Do you think they do the same with thir shoes,polos and shorts?

    Well, I'm sure items like clothes can be tailored to fit better. I'm not sure that counts the same as a racket paintjob.

    I'm sure several of the top players have shoes that are custom molded to their feet. But when it comes to the cosmetics, it looks like they would use the same colors, paneling, supports, etc. that would come on the retail version of the shoe.

    I guess it depends on if you think pros buy of the rack and use clothing and shoes without any modification......I'm sure that depends on the pro, but I'm sure some do and some don't.

    So.......basically I'm not sure.
