    Nasty....
    Too bad he has those ticks, otherwise would have been great to watch. I lose my patience (and interest) watching him after first two games of serving.

    Those are possibly the best Wimbledon shoes ever.
    Stupid spoil-sport rich old white man's club.

    But Serena is allowed to keep her ridiculously bright underwear, and we see more of that than we do of Rogi's shoe soles.

    This happens to me with pretty much every pair of socks I have ever found. I weat 10.5 so not too small but when you pull the sock on tight the heel always comes up out of the shoe.

    I have no problem with large socks, the bad are the thin socks.

    ^^^ I'm thinking that, in addition to his OCD issues, he also hates his toes and / or toenails.

    Why have Federer customized the upper front part of his shoes? It is not mesh like in the commercial version of the 9.5 Vapors.

    To not let clay get inside the shoe maybe?

    Nevermind. Those are for sale too. Seems to be the clay version of them. With clay outsole too.

    If you go back a few years you will find countless threads on the various differences between Nadal and Fed PE shoes and the retail versions.

    In Fed's case, most of the differences between PE and retail version of shoes relate to them not requiring any break in time.

    That gradient colouring on Elderer's nike is puke-inducing.

    Sweet congrats... Love the "The Man" text. Also, what size or is that some european shoe size on the tag?

    BTW I love this thread... I kinda hate feet but there is something cool about footwear in action shots, cropped and close up.

    Dogopolov

    I say next to Dogopolov at Indian Wells this year for a Womens match and got a Pic of his Joma shoe with his name on it and a custom sole. He said is was basically just a clay court sole but that many of the guys like that type of sole on hard courts as it makes sliding easier. I am not sure how to post pics though or I'd post it.

    Anyone else find it interesting that Wawrinka doesn't wear normal clay pattern soled shoes? I wonder if Yonex have decided this is a better way to go.

    Hi darklore009

    You are definitely quite good at capturing good shoe close ups! Do you have one of Federer's Wimbledon shoes from his 1st round match today?

    Thanks in advance

    Very nice - do they have any unique features to them? Tongue looks different, funny shape on the toe bumper and the label is in a different location

    Those seem like they are clay soles, but the toe area is mesh. I thought on clay versions it has a leather toe area, or do they not do that on NikeID.

    Late reply, but actually it is the clay version that he's wearing. It just has a significantly different pattern from most of other shoes on the market.
