    Can someone please tell me why Nike doesn't release the matching wristbands when they release new outfit? They release the shirts,shorts,shoes and even bandana that matches, but not the wristbands? Doesn't make any sense? When I look at the wristbands, it's always the generic white/navy/blue/grey ones, very rarely do I see other colors. Is it just TW that doesn't carry the matching wristbands or it's a Nike thing?

    Nike has only been selling wristbands in europe, however with this season that seems to have stopped. Some times they would get the wristbands and we in the US got the bandanas. It's very odd. Of course the good wristbands (i.e. the premiers) seem to be only sold in the US (IW, Miami, US Open) and on occasion majors outside of the US, but I don't think that's been the case for some time. I wish Nike would just mass produce the premiers and charge extra.

    Thanks for the info. Yeah I wonder why Nike does that, i'm sure matching wristbands would sell well.

    Nike does a lot of things that don't make sense. Like how they stopped selling the button/fastener shorts in NA but continue to sell them in Europe. Also now they have begun selling Roger's shirts without the RF logo for significantly cheaper prices. I've never been a huge fan of the RF logo and pretty much stopped buying nike shirts because the RF logo in many ways is just out of place and is Nike's justification for jacking up their prices. Might have to use a proxy now to get the non RF logo shirts from overseas.

    Edit: Upon further investigation, I believe the RF polos are of a higher quality (seamless design, also more "innovations" in the line), but it would still be nice to have the option over here.
