    murray wears barricades during the hardcourt season and i thought he was sponsored by adidas for shoes but then he wore nike shoes during the clay and grass season and now hes back to barricades again for the hardcourts. i would think he'd get some endorsements with nike or adidas since hes a high profile player.

    maybe he would rather choose when he wants to wear what shoe... also im sure he has enough money to buy his own shoes and maybe he gets them for free from coaches or friends...?

    he probably doesn't have one, but i highly doubt nike or adidas would make him pay. he probably asks the companies and they just give'em to him

    yup it doesn't look like he's got a shoe sponsor...

    his apparel deal is with Fred Perry and of course they don't make functional tennis shoes (maybe they used to in the past...I don't know)...

    Adidas during the hardcourt season and Nike during the grass and clay competitions...

    And he doesn't hide the logos by painting over them as some other pros have done coz there's just no need to...he doesn't have a shoe sponsor and there's no conflict...

    It's just like some of the Lacoste sponsored pros....many of them wear tennis shoes of other brands...like Cornet with Asics, Gasquet with Asics, Santoro with Nike and Asics....but I think Llodra does wear Lacoste shoes...

    he doesn't have a sponsor b/c odviously if he did, then he'd be wearing the same brand shoe year round. why do u think he wore Barricade IV's alot last year? and this year he switched between Vapors for clay and grass season and Barricades for hardcourts...

    I respect the hell out of Murray for choosing the kicks he likes, but you must admit that Nike and Adidas love this.

    Nike had a darn good shot at having two guys wearing gold vapors in the finals, one a GOAT contenda and the other Britain's huge hope.

    At Oz and U.S., Adidas is looking good to get bitter beer face into the finals with their shoes.
