The soles of his shoes are from the Vapor Speeds (2's) and have been for a long time. The cushioning/support inside is probably totally custom to fit his feet exactly.so are these ones not just a less disguised version of his 'iv's? Thought Nike might try to avoid giving the public completely different ones this time round...
Like the pale blue on them

Great eye. I didn't notice. Obviously Nike just does what Fed wants but gives us the rest. Odd as his use and input make the product better. So why not sell it and give a superior product.
The answer is that Federer’s customized footwear would not stand up to the typical six-month durability guarantee that the top-of-the-line shoes tend to come with in order to justify their high price.
As you probably know (e.g., from racing tires), the best traction is from softer sole compounds that simply do not last long at all. Also the most comfortable and most supportive upper materials – presumably like those in Federer’s customized shoes – tend to be softer in order to conform to his foot, but also cannot retain their supportive properties for half a year of intense beating from hard court use.
Roger's shoes are custom made. The width is VERY wide. Just guessing here, but I'd imagine they just use the original mold from the previous shoe for the outsole as outsole molds are costly to build. Due to the extreme width of his shoes, they would require a custom built outsole.
"... Shoot ! I left the oven on back home !...:
Federer has not worn any red polos at the Aus Open. He wears the light blue for day matches and the black for night matches.i liked it when he wore that red polo.

He looks awfully sinister imo.
