    What the hell is k-swiss trying to do? I was watching the game and looked like they are wearing identical short from distance. I was like what??

    Even color is same and plaid style is same tooooo.

    Monfils' shirt is also sea blue (i dont know what would be a better explanation) lil close to Nadal's shirt color.


    Is it just some random coincidence??

    Amazing then that someone will call Monfil's outfit a clown suit while praising Nadal's outfit. From the streaming video, the outfits looked identical from a distance.

    Styles go in and out. It's not unheard of for companies to imitate each other. And, it's plaid we're talking about. Hardly some unique design that Nike developed and patented.

  5. hondas, a lot of people have ripped Nadal's nike gear to shreds on here. I don't think people consider Nada's outfits to be awesome and Monfils' stuff to be stupid, in general.

    Nadal "Oh... my... god... he shows up wearing the same thing as me? I should go change, no?"

    But seriously dude look at nadal's left arm there. It looks like you could hit it with a baseball bat and the bat would break.

    It looks to me to be the spring group Boardshort in white with Snorkel Blue plaid. And a spring group shirt in Snorkel Blue. I'm kinda surprised he isn't wearing the Summer group Boardshort and Vivid Blue shirt.

    Anyway, Robbie, how do you like your K-Swiss shorts?

    Looks really cool out of the court.
    I don't like them too much on court, are not confortable,
    I use them as casual shorts, i prefer my Nike shorts.

    I found these shorts in clearence, that is why i buy it :)

    JS,
    I'm with you on those shoes, they look like they might be pretty good.
    Any idea when TW will be getting these and what colors they'll come in?
    THe Kswiss site has them in all white and a white/navy pair.
    The ones being used at RG look white and royal blue.

    I think the Speedster that Monfil wore were white with Snorkel blue stripes. Anyway, they were nicer than the colorways on the K-Swiss website.

    One of the shoe factories in Thailand that K-Swiss contracts through was recently shut down. This is leading to delays in the production of some shoes. I'm not sure what models this is affecting but could be the reason we do not have this Speedster yet.

    I think you're right about the snorkel color.
    Any idea if K-swiss will bring those out?
