i thought i would share this with you's

i was watching nadal a few days ago on sky sports (the match against monfis) and they mentioned the pro's nike socks, how they are the exact same sock as you would buy from any sports shops, all they do is roll the top of the sock into the inside of the sock making the nike tick at the top of the sock


you can see on this picture, nadals socks which are just folded into the inside of the sock.

i do this myself and they look exactly the same,

no i have seen some of the wimbledon gear, at my local store on his computer awhile ago, the guy told me that roger federer's shirt might be a heat changing top, which sounds nice, i will let you know what the fall gear is like if he lets me take a look.

So, you're saying they're not paint jobs? Everything is a freaking paint job, man! We're being fooled! Arrrggg... Er, sorry; haven't had my pill, yet...

I don't know about Nadal but a lot of touring pros wear double pairs too,Safin definitely.Also a lot have their ankles taped (Federer) and some have some kind of protection "pad" or something on their achilles tendon,I think Nadal in this picture as well.

Look how chunky the midsoles of Nadal's shoes are...guess that was the panacea to his foot problems earlier this year.

And does anybody else find it amusing that Nadal's shoes are printed with "Vamos" and "Rafa" instead of his last name, like everybody else's is?

Cool! What does the wimbledon gear look like?
 
i don't understand what you mean by folding them inside the sokc, i have the smae ones that nadal and fed wear, and i am trying to make them look a little less stupid and get the swoosh to the top, but don't understand how you explained it

No, no, no. Your assumptions are all wrong. Nike makes tennis specific Dri-Fit socks that have the Nike swoosh at the very top where there's also a "collar" as in the above pic.

You can buy them from TW. Here: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageNIKE-NMDFSTCS.html

why do all the pros wear high socks... any of them wear quarter or ankle socks??
Perhaps the gay ones do? ;) LOL. :mrgreen:

Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.
