Not sure if joking haha. If not: Rafa at the 2010(?) French Open I believe
No i was serious.. i didnt know anyone ever wore them after him.. i knew it looked like a pair ive never seen so i asked
Sorry didnt mean to come off snide!
It was the Courtballistec 2.3 with that zig-zag being a throwback to Agassi for sure. It was a seriously comfy shoe!
The Lunars that they sell now are the newest iteration of that line.
Among other colors through out 2010
Yea i just looked it up.. i thought they were a pe of the challenger 3. I didnt know they were a different shoe.. they are sweet
No u didnt. I wonder ir they are hard to come by now..
Oh yeah. 180+ on the bay. From a quick check.
You may be able to find them cheaper I dont know
Looks like Grigor is now sporting a Vapor with a carbon-fiber-like shank similar to Federer.
Mind the outsole pattern!
Looks like a Vapor 8 outsole
How can you tell? it looks like the typical faux plastic carbon weave if anything at all I could be wrong though.
I've written "carbon-like", as far as I'm concerned it's plastic.
The new thing is his outsole: his shoes used to have the vapor9 pattern.
From that pic it definitely looks as though Grigor has adopted Federer's vapor outsole pattern (and likely material) and carbon fiber shank...he definitely used to just run the standard retail vapor outsole pattern and plastic shank....wonder if he's also adopted the other elements from Federer's PE Vapors?
Great close up pics @Rhino and @mpournaras ! I thought I saw some green crosses replacing the red crosses from previous years. Does anyone have any close ups? I could not find anything on Getty images. Thanks in advance.
Although the shoes look like Barricade 8 and 8+, the upper seems to be pretty unique. If I had to compare it something I would say the Barricade 7's synthetic upper. It's not as rubbery as the B8+ upper which Andy actually used. Nice and simple modified herringbone pattern on a pretty sweet sized, one-piece outsole.
