    they should really put more thought into these quite hideous offerings.. this washed out pale blue 11 shirt might be the worst of the bunch

    Sick and Tired of talking about lack of Nike Tennis designs. It’s just nothing new nowadays.
    With those boring design, Nike can’t sell “20” fed shirts and probably this one too.

    Nike needs fresh minded person in their Tennis department.

    Prefer to see Fed and Nadal both gone and spend those money to invest another innovative products.
    Probably it will cover entire Nike products.
    If Nike stays same, adidas will eat the market share more and more.
    If Adidas’s new marketing experiment is successful (basically copying nike’s Store haha), they can take 10-20% market shares within 2 years from Nike.

    They could write something there, like King of Clay not just 11 and small bull logo

    They know you’ll buy it anyway. Sad - but true.

    Quotes from avid Nadal members from TTW printed all over the shirt with a centered bull logo.

    That will do it.

    :cool:

    I wanted to buy it but not gonna do it. It's basic cotton and bad to play in it, so it's a no go for me

    The people who have ordered the commemorative shirts like this for Fed and Rafa in the past the last three years have been very disappointed and most of them have returned them. It’s just ridiculous.

    the biggest issue for me is the quality.. these most recent accomplishments from rafa and fed are incredible. i would rather nike matched theses hallmarks with specialty releases of shoes, jackets, or hats.. not pure cotton t-shirts. nike produced those fed hats to match the shirt.. only problem was they were awful.

    100% cotton! That means you cannot really wear it for doing anything athletic! Terrible! Where is the the dri fit? I do not like to have it shrink after washing it 10X and sweat in it soak in 90+ degree sunny weather! Nike should of made it with dri-fit and charge the $65.00!

    Exactly what I said - probably they thought of it only for casual wear, not tennis... that's weird..

    Nike seems to be "on the cheap" with these promotional honor record achievement type T-Shirts. Normal 100% t-shirt with a swoosh blue logo sells for $18.00.

    The problem is not that it is cotton.

    The problem is that it is paper-thin, cardboard-like, cheap, low-quality cotton with a print that will go in no time.

    Ditto that! But I purchase it directly from Nike Store because I call them and the gal said they would take it back if I had concerns! Nike has alway done what they said so I purchased it there.

    It's threads like this that have pushed Federer away from Nike.
