    how come some guys are wearing fed's current vapors? Tomic for instance. I though fed always had exclusive stuff that only he was allowed to wear when it first came out.

    Nike is testing out new prospects because according to TT posters, Federer is retiring soon.

    Not always, like Berdych and Dimitrov also wear the all white vapor9 in their clay season, which are Roger's wimbledon shoes

    Fun fact, the Nike players can wear whatever shoes they want. They are not told not to wear certain colorways.

    Thats why fed usually has an unreleased PE of the shoe with some grandslam markings on it or what have you

    That may be so but Nike supplies them their gear and seem to generally make sure their players are in 'kits' of a sort and not badly mismatching stuff (unlike some of Haas's shockers).

    He wears completely custom versions of the shoes made just for him. The availability of the retail version most other pros get to wear is irrelevant to what colour-way he is wearing.
