    Melzer has on a pair of shoes that are all whited-out, definitely not adidas shoes. Anyone notice, and what are they?? all white 2k10??

    Why all whited out then, no adidas markings? that makes no sense; makes one think he is doing a djokovic @ wimbledon a couple years ago when djoker wore Nike BC II's with the swoosh whited out

    Maybe that's the purpose, to get your attention

    They white them out because they don't want anyone seeing the colourways before they're officially released. So they give the players these custom whited out versions to playtest. The only thing that seems strange is that melzers wearing them now; usually they use them for practice (fed and rafa did it last year with the ll's and 2.3's) but then will use their regular shoes for matches, due to the fact the shoes are still, relatively in the development stage and could have some small problem or design flaw. Guess it means he really likes them.

    Well maybe if Verdasco was wearing them, it would get more attention from people, thus everybody asking. Maybe Melzer is a low key guy and no one will care... just us freaks who are spot-on on everything the players wear making him a good playtester :)
