oooooohh.... not bad I guess @.@
Fed should wore that "armory navy" color of shorts, instead of white. Would fit much better IMO.
I strongly agree. The white would suit better with the blue shirt.
Bought the men's fall striped Sphere Crew, and the material is great. May be my favorite tennis specific top out of the ones I own.
Just saw all new PREMIER wristbands for Fall2013 on another website... (sorry, can't post link or pictures here).
So I believe TWE will have them all too, as it was the case for summer !!! Great news !
Would Federer be wearing his US Open polo for Hamburg and Gastaad and the US Open Series plus the US Open. Or will he change. Remember he wore the V-neck during the US Open Series then wore the navy polo for the Open.
Saw them too... At least $80 worth of wristbands in my cart lol
Fed is wearing the current polo for the 2 clay tourneys and the Open Series. For the US Open he has a day outfit Blue polo/white shorts and Night outfit armory navy polo (dark navy) with blue shorts
I see normal wristbands:
Armory Navy/Sonic Yellow
Light Armory Blue/Armory Navy
Dark Armory Blue/Atomic Red
Dark Navy/Sonic Yellow
the ones with a little band on one end have:
Armory Navy/White/Light Armory Blue
Armory Navy/ Blue/Light Armory Blue
Blue/Light Armory Blue
all of them seem to have the premier wristband composition (nylon instead of cotton)
Great info. Thanks. Seems to be a lot of chioices this fall
I just added the color code beside your post for the collectors, and also some comments about their description and pictures, which may be wrong or not final yet (as it was the case for their summer wristbands pictures)
Hope you don't mind
But this is not for US Open right?
Nope, only the Masters series.
There will be new shoes for USO too? Is that how it usually plays out?
Anyone think this looks a lot like Monte Carlo/Madrid/Rome 2011 except for the green wristbands/bandana?
different yellow though.. I think that was tour yellow and this is sonic yellow.. so this yellow is brighter haha but yeah the overall outfit is similar
Similar to Nadal US Open 2009
Anyone bought Nike RF shorts he wore at Hamburg/Gstaad ?
On the picture below, you can clearly see a dark blue detail on the belt, though on Nike pictures the detail is red !
What's the real thing then ?
edit: OK, I got the answer as TWE updated their website with new gears, a couple of hours after I asked !
The retail version is the same as Federer's.
Fed's US Open night outfit?
Yes it is. I'm seriously sorry for Federer, but like Nadal at RG '09, I wouldn't be able to take it if they were to lift the trophy, even if I like both of them. I don't usually complain about outfits, but to my eyes, this is THAT awful.
If that really is Feds USO outfit then they really failed :/
Well I was sent a catalog picture of Federer wearing it. Eww.
Now, like he did with his bandana, he'll maybe tweak it a bit during the competition. Or let's hope he only plays during daytime, which is unlikely since he prefers night sessions.
Delightfully elegant apparel coming out of Nike studios. Sartorially on-trend and rich with streetwear crossover appeal.
The kind of gear fashion bloggers would take Instagram pics of if they happened to walk past a tennis court and saw you wear it. But most of all, it's worth buying even at full MSRP coz it will pay for for my condo one day or kids dental bills. Yessiree, these clothes will make money for me.
Fed's outfit did fail but I do like the fact Nike tried something DIFFERENT. That is the first step....
Ala Federer's US-market shorts, it seems Nike are trying to slowly make the Nadal shorts more and more generic. First the hook and loop went to be replaced with velcro, and now there isn't even a velcro fly but a drawstring. I'm glad I got some Nike stuff for good prices while it was still somewhat unique, the recent decontenting of items and the horrible designs mean I won't be buying these even at 70% off.
That's just awful. He should stick to the shorts and shoes he was wearing on Hamburg and Gastaad.
That's just flagrant.
And Peter Parker would endorses those shoes.
I cannot see Fed actually coming out in that outfit. There must be an alternative plan. Anna Wintour will disown him if he does.
I don't wear sweatbands or bandanas but even from a layman's point of view surely the Nadal wristbands and headband cannot be the right color? Or are they official pics? If so, someone needs firing and the Spaniard needs a new neck.
I thought this is for women but it says Rafa jacket.
Maybe Roger is faking the back troubles so he won't have to wear these Nike kits.
The shoe Nike are advertising has the fit frame/midsole colours reversed compared to the TW ones...looks much better imo
HO.LY.CRAP. how can he even wear that.
You have to be a 5.0 tennis player and in good shape to pull this off. I like the shoes and shorts a lot, I also like both of Rafa's tops.
I was sent the Vapors, Fed shorts and Rafa shirts and shorts about a week ago. I've rocked if different combos twice now and have gotten lots of compliments. Don't hate the player, hate the game
Man, if you're 5.0, you can wear sandals and I doubt anyone will say anything.
It's the 3.0's with bandana bunting moonballs left and right, barely breaking a sweat, that need to take note.
I like this year's USO kits. Finally Nike decided to try something new for a change. Will probably get Rafa's X-Shirt and the Pink one.
Can finally post these now that they've been released. Had them for a couple of weeks.
One word... FUGLY. And, yes, I'm a Fed fan. Doh!!! Way to go Nike. You hit the ball out of the park again just like you did with the pink/black/white Vapor 9s six months ago. WTF?!?!
The polarized pink vapors are awesome but once again it's a 5.0 and above shoe
Lol. Well played sir. That made me smile.
I usually like Nike promo pics, but I don't understand this one : we don't see the polo at all... How can it be a good "promo" pic then ? Strange !
Seems like only the shoes is shocased here.
