    Remember Sampras stayed with the Oscillates for like 8 years till retirement. Now he still wears those old Vapors for about the last 5-6 years.

    It must bother Nike that Sampras did that, while Fed and Nadal changes shoes and colors seemingly two or three times a year.

    WOnder if Pete was under pressure by Nike to let them change his shoes or if they just let him do what he wished. Anybody know.

    Yeah, Pete is stuck with Vapor-3's , but they are customized - I think becuase they heel area & the back certainly looks wider than my old vapor-3's. But , I personally thought Pete would atleast switch to Vapor-IV , that shoe was so much like the oscillates. Low to the ground feel , glove like fit - I guess Pete Really likes those V3's
