Nike "Glitter Shorts"

Perhaps this belongs in the Pro Gear section, but is anyone else not loving the Nike glitter shorts on Fed & Rafa?

Ugly like hell.

Initially I intended to go bash (in a good-natured way obviously) Nadal a little bit about it. Then I watched replay of Fed's match and to my horror saw he was sporting the same thing! Who knows, after today I might have to admit Djokovic has better outfit than Fed (for once):shock:

That said, Fed's still better than Rafa's :twisted:

ditto. At least they made them both wear them. They're ghastly.

Rafa can pull that outfit off, IMO, but it would look even better with rollerblades!

Should be in the Pro Gear section indeed, but before it gets moved over there, I just have to say I LOVE both Nadal's and Fed's outfits. No wonder - apart from the colours, they are exactly the same. Nice move, Nike.

The glitter stipes may have been left off, but having started to watch tennis during the Borg/McEnroe era, I surely don't mind to a little more of these guys' great legs.

So, here's a different tune - absolutely great outfits and both of them pull it off very nicely. Fed's current Dubai (?) sunny tan surely helps in this regard.

I totally dig the new shorts. Reminds me of the glitter I had on my platform shoes in the 70's. I love me some glitter.

Yeah, to clarify, even though I was making fun, I do like them even though it seems like I shouldn't :)

Plain wrong. Can look like a number of things, shirt for road workers, pyjamas, beach shorts. Utterly disgusting, much worse than anything Agassi used to wear in the 80s.

Sadly, even Federer is even wearing similar shorts though they're of different color and striping. His is a bit more subtle but the stripey thing is there. Also, I noticed on TW that the white shorts that are for sale have a more subdued pink stripe and, frankly, looks better than the ones Rafa is rocking. But I guess the ones for public consumption don't look as striking on video as the glittery ones.

Absolutely hideous. Hate Rafa's pink kit, but I don't mind Fed's. Volt > Pink.

Still wouldn't buy either.

Nike missed the mark. Glitter shorts are ugly. Too much neo-yellow and neo-pink. Nadal's shirt and shorts are cut short. Nadal looks like the easter bunny out there. Fed's are just a little better and might be passable without the glitter stripe on the shorts. All in all, Nike went too far on the men's side. Nike on women looks better. I think Nadal's outfit would actually look better on a woman.

You know I say show your colors. Escape from the rampant vanilla-ness out on the rec/club courts.
I wouldn't wear the hot pink that Nadal and some others are flashing, but I support their right to do so and doesn't bother me one iota.
The man upstairs created the world in color. Go forth with your bad self and express yo-self y'all
