Wow! (Thanks for the review). Now I'm really bummed it's on backorder. Niketown here I come...
Thanks for the pictures and reviews, the black crew looks absolutely stunning!!
Im tempted to get it as well, just havent found a shop yet who has it in stock so far. Damn those delays. Also, if I take the size from the AO and FO crew, I should be fine with the black one as well?
Its a very narrow shirt, I havn't washed mine yet, I'm curious how much it will shrink.
I love the narrowness of the shirt new, after a dry it may be interesting.
Hey innovashaun. Can u get me the nadal headband and wristbands (us open 2010)? Remember u got me the french open ones?!
Let me know. Thanks
One of the sites I get my tennis equipment has the shorts with the graphics on them for $60 and they are in stock. They are a reliable site too and I have gotten most of my apparel there alongside tw.
U don't put it in the drier do you? Hang dry those shirts!
Niketown BH has them too - quite an odyssey getting there (405 north construction is ridiculous, even at 1030AM) - but I got one. But fellow So Cal'ers, don't procrastinate - they only have 4 or 5 (unless they have more in the back - didn't ask) left. Of all the tennis shirts, these seem to be going the fastest.
And to add to what Joel Dali said, the pics don't do them justice - they are even more bad *** in person.... big Win for Nike. And the lime one is very bright - haven't pulled the trigger on that one yet.
And appears to be a pretty 'standard' cut. Not the ultra thin and long blue/yellow Rush and Crush sizing.
Fed in pink doesn't look too bad:
Agreed. (Except for the shoes) that is a good look. But not buying any of it. The Nike designers for Rafa are on fire right now...
No need to order them from TWE anymore. The US has them:
Rafa's wearing the Solar Red Vamos crew in Toronto tonight. Looks different from ours - the side lighter colored section doesn't go all the way up to the armpits - stops about mid-ribcage. And it appears to be a lot shorter... will post a pic when I can find one online.
Nothing you see on Fed or Rafa is stock.
Here is the pic:
JD, I knew their stuff was cut to their bodies (and goofy things like chest pockets are removed) but didn't think something this obvious would be done. Maybe it's the Euro version?
The shirt looks red in this pic. Is it dark red or actually pink?
I think it's the pink/mango - just bad night time lighting in that pic - plus it's drenched in sweat - so that makes it a lot darker too. When he came out on court and it was still semi-light it looked the same color as the one we are buying. But I guess to be 100% certain we need someone who is there - or should be able to tell during a day match.
The wristbands look like the AO aster pink ones (at least the pink one, the other looks like a regular white w/black swoosh)
it looks like the correct length in this pic:
Rafa start the match wearing the vamos lawn short in white and lt wild mango and finish the match with the Summer Rush & Crush Clay Short of Roland Garros...Why???
I just noticed nadal isnt wearing his watch
I think thats only a Grand Slam thing.
BTW his wristbands were indeed "Aster Pink"
Look the difference between roger retail short and his personal one
It's a snap instead of a button. Roger told Nike when they started putting button closures on his shorts that he was afraid that the button would pop off, or the thread holding it would unravel, so they switched his to a snap closure. Similar to Nadal's vamos shorts, except only one snap instead of two. Great catch!
Nike are obviously feeling the recession, no custom coloured shoes for Rafa and he is using his AO wristbands. I was expecting some solar red CB2.3's.
Yeah, I was really hoping for custom 2.3's even though they probably wouldn't be availabe to the public.
So what shoes is he wearing with this outfit? Anyone know if the bandana is available?
looks like he wore white and black CB 2.3 (Wimbledon) and the bandana is not available for public.
What's the deal with all those bandanas not available to the public? I ruins the "complete outfit" experience.
Anybody manage to find a pic of Rafa's or Fed's shoes at the Rogers cup? Getty appears to have no shots of Rafa's shoes? I know Fed is wearing a white and tan version of his custom vapors, but was hoping to see some good shots of both of theirs.
Why do you ask same question twice? Actually, no one can give you the answer unless Nadal...Why??? ^__^
I can only see the start and the end of the match...no the middle...and I ask if rafa change the short in public oe went to the rest-rooms to do that...
After the first set he went to the restrooms
Are these going to be available in US, or are we doomed as with the white Wimby shorts?
FedHammer I'm pretty sure these will not be available in the US. Bummer, we'll have to make do with the elastic waist woven shorts
is it just me or does Nadal's wrist band look a slightly different shade of pink than his shirt? :-?
not digging fed's shoes either:
they are lot better than the lunalites vapor "vii', though the color scheme is hidious
i'm pretty sure they're the aster pink ones used during the australian open.
Fed's shoes have perfect pink lunarlite material?
OMG. Feds real shorts have different button than the retial ones?!
This... cannot be!
yeah, i thought the wristbands were a bit more bubblegummy than the shirt. so are they the ones that go with ao '10? and if so, which are the ones that are supposed to go with this outfit
i wished feds shoe should have a bit of pink in it
i think its the same color from the shorts?
Look the lunarlite material. I think that it's perfect pink.
Federer's outfit is actually quite classy. I didn't think he'd pull it off.
yeah i agree. the pink and brown actually go quite nice together.
sorry i cant see pink
have you noted that nike swoosh logo on roger's shorts is painted?
On the retail ones it is embroidered....
