    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.

    Looks like Grigor is now sporting a Vapor with a carbon-fiber-like shank similar to Federer.
    Mind the outsole pattern! :)

    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.
