    You may have noticed Federer's new Nike shoes at the Australian Open this year. What you may not have noticed is that they are nothing but a paintjob. If you watch closely on changeovers you will see that they are really Adidas Stan Smith court shoes painted to resemble the latest from Nike.

    As with his racquet, Federer has decided that he is simply too good to use modern equipment, it makes the game too easy for him. As with all the great players, they use the oldest equipment possible to prove that they really earn their victories. The new crop of young players are using bigger, more powerful frames to cheat so that they might have a chance to beat him. But no true professional would ever really use modern equipment, because that definitely would be cheating. Federer takes this to the limit by buying all of his equipment used at Goodwill stores and then spending the weekend painting them to look like current offerings from his sponsors.

    Not only is he the greatest tennis player of all time, he is a master painter...a true Swiss maestro.

    Federer is actually CG..you've never really seen him, he is added in later, hence the 10 second delay on all televised matches.

    There has been some speculation during the AO if they were truly PJ's.

    If you check out close up pics of his shoes in Indian Wells. They are NOT the lunalite sold to the public as well... Fed's looks soooo much better. The retail ver is lame.

    Guys....I was joking about the whole paintjob thing. He's not really wearing Adidas Stan Smith Court shoes.

    From my observation, Federer wears the retail version of Vapor Lunarlite only during his practice sessions or unofficial exhibitions, he wears customized (Vapor VI alike) shoes still for his official matches.

    Everyone knows Fed doesn't wear shoes. He simply wears socks with rubber on the bottom and a PJ of the latest Nike shoe.

    This was proven over a year ago. Do a search. ;)

    I've heard Federer uses old Wilkinson razors with Gillette paintjob.
