    I know that this is not a real close up pic, but it was the best I could find.I had never noticed that Roger also wore a special Vapor V for his "smoke" outfit that he wore only once during the US Open 2008. Does anybody here actually know why he only wore the outfit once, and then always the red?

    ...because it looked ridiculous

    Smoke is a better secondary colour IMHO

    I really think Nike could do a better job with the PJs of Rogi's shoes. The ones they did for him at the beginning of the year in Australia, Dubai and Indian Wells, as well as parts of Miami were almost identical, but they were still mostly V6s. Even if there is something they really can't include from the V8 because of Roger's preferences, they could at least make the cut out panels and try and get the colour pops in the right places.

    You can see from FabFed's pictures, the main difference is the full length Lunarlon outsole, which Roger obviously doesn't like, which is also why I assume they're going back to Zoom Air next year. But they could make a bit more effort to conceal the fact that he's using a shoe two years out of rotation, whilst marketing some new stuff he doesn't even like.
    I mean, if you're gonna lie about the stuff he's using, at least do a good job, right?

    The less red the better for sure

    Very nice. The commercially available color is too yellow!

    a person with a shoe fetish is correctly called a *sneakerhead*- heres the dictionary def.


    A sneakerhead is a person who owns multiple pairs of shoes as a form of collection and fashion. It is often manifested by the use of shoes primarily made for sports, such as tennis or basketball, as normal everyday clothing. ...

    i am considered a sneakerhead because i collect jordans... etc..

    You know you're a sneakerhead when you have more pairs of shoes than your wife.
