    Not exactly the same. Nadal's had yellow inside the red. Also, if you notice Blakes's swoosh is gold(much like the rest of the Nike USA shoes for ther rest of the athletes). I'm guessing this is the Olympic shoe for team USA. Maybe one of the moderator's here can answer whether or not TW will have these available? I know last year you had the Davis Cup special make-up shoe. Count me in if you do!!!

    That RED color looks like it is for Girls......Usually when Men wear red, it is more of a dark red color.

    Technically who made up the matching the rule? Must everything match? :confused:

    They look fine to me, plus they match with his tournagrip tape. :D

    I do agree with the matching look for the Pros. amateurs like me can wear crashing colors and it is no big deal but top level pros like Blake always has camara on him with millions of people watching. they have certain obligation to look good. I suggest to Blake, Wear Red Top with White shorts. Or Red Shorts with White top. Or All white top and shorts with Red headband. this is perfect combo with his red shoes.:)

    Everything must match and that little strip of red showing on the racquet doesnt count. :p It's all about coordinating your colors properly. Mr Blake obviously has more important things to worry about. ;)

    In the apparel update thing it said

    "James Blake wears Nike apparel, Nike Vapor IV's/Nike Breathe Free II's, and plays with an Aerogel 200. Brought to you by Tennis Warehouse"

    Kinda bad marketing for people who know tennis, those were clearly Breathe Cage II's
