Players go through shoes faster than most people think, sometimes the deliveries happen to tournament sites sometimes to hotels, their residencies etc... if a player is using older model of shoes it can be for a lot of different reasons, Murray was wearing Nike at the time on clay because he was allowed by Adidas to wear since the Nike may have been a better shoe at the time for Murray, still He was sponsored by Adidas, but Murray is/was a different case.
Djokovic, the number 1 player in the world is getting sponsorship money from Adidas, as any top player get paid to wear shoes from a brand. Being on Adidas site or not doesn't mean much, maybe Adidas doesn't want to put Djokovic's picture there because what most people will see is Uniqlo (which pays him to wear clothes in every photo shoot), and that's the last thing Adidas want is someone like Djokovic to be wearing a competitor's apparel on their site - meaning Adidas will be promoting Uniqlo.
Anyway, Bobby Jr is right on the money with what may just as well be what happened in the "Djokovic's case" .
Dude, we've told him this many times, he doesn't get it. I once said that he could have his pic on the Adidas site, it'd be him naked, just wearing Adidas shoes, smiling. He is the type of guy that is right no matter what, if he decides the sky is green, then it doesn't matter that it's obviously blue, he says it's green, and that's it.
