Via his facebook:
Looks like Federer decided to take a stand against pink.
Top one looks promising.
I like the top one as well. The blue ones look the same as the previous model he wore in 2012.

Bet Vapor 9 ID sales will increase big time after he wears them at the AO.
i like all of them. anything roger wears always look great on him
But isn't there a vapor 9 out in a colourway specifically designed for his outfit, the pink and grey. The black and grey vapors go perfectly with that outfit. Sure its not a great outfit...but some of those do not match up at all?
Black & pink is for the night sessions, these are for day sessions.
Yep. There's two turquoise colored ID shoes in there for a reason.
Has anyone notice how the forefoot outsole is different from the retail model? It's similar to the old V6 / 2K mold.
The variation is not as bad as the vapor8, where only the upper was similar (V6 air zoom underneath instead of the dreadful quicksand lunarlon...)
As if Nike ID sent him the shoes... aside from the looks they're very different to the Nike ID shoes*.
(*the outsole, the shank, the wear guards, the shape of the toe-box etc.)
Very good marketing though. What a way to raise attention to the NIKEiD..
yeah its been discussed before: basically ever since the V7 he's been using vapors with outsoles of the V6. during 2011 season the only time he used a shoe that at least "looked like" the V8 was the australian open colorway, after that he used basically V6 shoes with colorways similar to ones on retail
Yeah, you're right. It's not just the outsole, the shank looks thinner, the toe box more squarish... I'm sure overall it's a much lighter package.
Also, given the fact that Fed will be wearing light blue for his day sessions and considering how all of his outfits were carefully matched until now, i don't really see him wearing a mismatched red V9 with a blue top. My guess is that the light blue one wins.
Isn't the light blue outfit for post-AO events such as Rotterdam and Dubai? :?
guys... u're missing the big point... nike went and did a campaign with adverts with the black/pink vapor (we all saw the adverts) ... surely they would have ran the color/options with fed before ausopen/print... why change now?
did fed get cold feet with wearing hot pink? whoever came up with the color scheme/thought it'll look good on fed... lol good luck
and i'm voting for federer to wear the recently released volt/white scheme....
I think you didn't get the point.
They're letting us decide his shoes for his DAY outfit, he is definitely gonna wear the black/pink ones from the adverts for his NIGHT outfit.
What do you think, that he made them himself? Just because they're not retail...
whens the last time federer wore a day/night outfit to an Ausopen?
think stubborn federer is making a stand against pink... and who can blame him... doesnt look good on feet
2008. The first and only time that he did it.
2008, and now 2013.
He will in 2013.
On Nike FB page (reliable source... I guess...) here is the description of the white/pink iD :
This ZV9T is inspired by Federer's Australian Night ZV9T - taking a lighter color to fight the heat.
the V9iD (1 of the 4 Fed was sent) will be for the Day outfit (neo-turquoise polo + white short) and the anthracite/pink V9 will be for the Night outfit (grey/pink polo + anthracite short)
We know he's not going to wear a pair of shoes which don't match his outfit so you can discount the ones with peach or yellow trim.
Ohh, that Neo-Turquoise is so beautiful... I hope that he only play in day sessions =P
I guess the facebook "game" is just to promote, and it works, but they don't care the result : Fed will choose the blue one to fit the outfit.
(well... the blue iD is indeed winning the vote right now, anyway)
Black and red or whatever that color is.
A shame, because that peach swoosh one is the biz. Love it.
The peach one would suit his night outfit better than the actual Night Z9VT.
Right, that would be a beautiful shoes for Night outfit !
Would be nice if Fed switch for it sometimes. Don't think it's possible though.
I guess he doesn't care what people "LIKE" on FB.
Lol. Mixing things up.
its only practice...
The winning shoe is announced!
Me too. Would probably go for the black/peach thing if I had to.
Great idea by Nike. But does make me wonder if Roger took a look at the black/pink things and started shaking his head slowly...
Wow, what a coincidence, the "winner" was the one with turquoise details! Who could see that coming?
He will need to wear the Vapor 9 that shoots out Laser beams in order to beat Murray. lol
From what collection is the shirt he is wearing by the way?
