Hey, so I had a thought about the vapor line...

I'm worried that the we will be stuck with the vapor x for, well, a long time. With Federer leaving for Uniqlo, I'm worried that Nike won't allow Roger to update the vapor x, and possibly just any Nike ambassador. Me personally, I think the vapor line can still be improved. Thoughts?
 
I think Nike is scaling back their tennis dept now that Fed has completely left and Rafa is in the twilight of his career. If you think about it, it’s completely ridiculous the the Nike Vapor S2, a shoe released in 2004, features better cushioning and materials than the 2019 Vapor x. We’ve gone from getting a leather shoe with heel and forefoot zoom for $100 to a plastic shoe with heel zoom and nothing in the forefoot for $170. With Fed moving to ON in 2020 Nike needs to give consumers quality if they want to retain their fan base.

It is sad it has come to this, almost everything Nike and Federer made together were incredible in my opinion. And yeah I agree the cushioning in recent years has really gone down in quality for Nike.

They definitely had one of the best runs of signature lines out of any athlete in living memory. The RF line was, in terms of apparel, the best of any signature line in terms of aesthetics and quality, I can’t really even think of another athlete who comes close.

The shoes were up and down, but you can’t argue with the Federer-Jordan collab. It’s sad that Nike has been pinching pennies for the last few models, it’s truly a dismal and undeserved end to of of the greatest athlete signature lines of all time. Hopefully Nike can do some protro releases like they’re doing with Kobe.
