    I think that he will just wear an obsidian bandana, kudos to Nike for letting his hair covers most of the bandana anyway lol.

    About university red, would you guys say that it's very similar to the red in RG 11? Thanks!

    According to the picture, one could guess that the bandana will be obsidian, but if you look closely, you see that it is actually red. I am just wondering if it is this one or another one.

    I also guess that his wristbands might be those although it says Varsity red w/ black. The only University red wristbands on TW are with a white swoosh - and they are only available on TWE.

    A pity that all those things are only available either on TW or on TWE - but I mentioned that before. :D

    Yeah I noticed that it's red too but maybe deeply inside I just wanna assume that it's obsidian because I intend to match the outfit like it later and I think that obsidian bandana would look better as well. Either ways we can only know for sure till the open since Nike's PTS works are usually not that accurate :)


    Yeah I just look over that section from TW as well and has the same thought as you. However I also think that that bandana is too bright of a red for Fed to match his outfit so there maybe some exclusive stuff at the Nike booth.

    For the wristbands, were you referring to this one on TWE? http://www.tenniswarehouse-europe.com/descpage-NSDVR.html

    If that's the case then the only difference between 2 continents' wristbands are just the swoosh color which is fine for me :D

    You asked if there was an actual store at a factory. I replied that there wasn't one. A nike factory store is just a regular clearance store

    Yeah, I guess we have to wait until the USO - I guess an obsidian bandana would also look great with that, so there's no problem there. :)


    Yeah, I meant those wristbands at TWE and you're right, if the swoosh is black or white - it doesn't matter. I am just wondering if the exclusive USO stuff gets available here after the Open - that would be perfect as I would really like to pick up a red bandana.

    On TW, there are none (except for Varsity Red) and on TWE there are those although it doesn't say the exact color. But according to the picuture, it seems like Roger is wearing the ones from TW.

    Interesting. Think I'll just stick to the obsidian combo, I already have enough shades of red bandannas and wristbands. I prefer the white vee outfit he's currently wearing to that one.

    Without having to search through 6 pages of posts, can someone tell me if they're planning on releasing exclusive shoes for Fed like they did in 2010 and previous years? Thanks

    I know I'm kind of pissed that nike is recycling colors for both Fed AND rafa. Roger had obsidian in 2010, red in 2011. Rafa had the same color scheme in 2010. Then again Roger is almost always Blue/Black/Red at the Open.

    I don't think we will know until the nike shop opens its doors.

    Agreed!

    Nike need to mix the colours up.

    Rafa in yellow/blue 04, 05, 07, 09, 10, 11 and 12.

    Fed in blue or red 03, 04, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11 and 12.

    How about some variety in the colours?

    I guess somehow a repetition will always come up from time to time, but I agree, they are recycling a bit too much sometimes. For example, the blue shirt of Roger (USO day) reminds me a lot of the polo (according to color) he wore when he won the FO.

    If you have Amex card, use that for all purchases on site. You get $50 Ralph Lauren gift card for every $150 purchases. Although $50 at RL hardly gets you a t-shirt.

    For me they seems to basically copy the old USO of 2010. But they still looks okey so you beat me Nike

    Where do you get the bigger fall photos from?

    I know tennis warehouse show them in a small icon and prodir show them on the side, but which site shows them in their full 'default' glory?

    I'm convinced Nike messed up the photo shop and forgot to make the swoosh white, but maybe I'm just crazy. Here is DY at Winston-Salem with University Red/White wristbands.

    these pics also show just how frequent nike is reusing styles and colors. fed night sessions for both years are essentially the same, with obsidian or dark navy base and details at the collars. Day sessions have essentially the same color, except ones a crew and ones a polo. although they're great outfits, some more creativity would be good nike!
    adidas is doing this far better than nike at the moment...
    2013 is probably nike's year

    i went to us open today, and the nike store was "half open," as the gate wasn't completely down, and I managed to take a picture of what I believe will be the limited edition fed shoes. They're similar to the "dark navy/obsidian and red shoes" but the upper appeared to be alot brighter of a blue. i'm assuming this is for a day shoe. i took a picture for you guys, but i don't think you can see it very well from a distance. and under the shadows it looks too similar to the current ones in stock, so you'll have to wait till friday to find out for sure or you can take my word for it. =) either way i'll be back friday to pick up a pair of these bad boys =)

    i saw many things, but i'm not sure what you're specifically referring to. i probably didn't pay attention to much else other than this. i saw a tshirt, another mad-ball one with some writing on it but i forgot what it said.

    the only side of the booth not pictured is the side with teh shoes and wristbands, I dont think there are any extra shirts on that side... all the shirts should've been displayed on the screeen.
    thanks a lot for the pics!!
