The simplicity of the colorway in the OG shoe really brings out the subtleties of the shoe's design. the TPU frame, adaptive fit system and mesh upper all being one color has a really nice effect, highlighting the form of the adaptive fit against the mesh. it was also the first release of the year featuring a TPU frame that matched the color of the upper, much like the previously leaked but later released USO colorway.

EDIT: one reservation i have is not necessarily with the shoe but with the rest of the OG outfit federer wore with the shoe. i feel like the shoe would look great if the entire outfit werent comprised of white and red.

Yes the OG with just the all white and red sole are probably the BEST EVER color scheme in a tennis shoe.

It's really too bad this shoe was a limited edition or else I would have purchased another 2 pairs. I get complimented with the OG shoe at every club/venue and the chicks love it too.
