The Tinker Hatfield-designed tennis shoe, created especially for Roger Federer, will be customizable on NIKEiD beginning December 18.
In January 2012 under the hot sun of a Melbourne summer, Roger Federer took the court in his most advanced tennis shoe to date -- The Zoom Vapor 9 Tour. Created by Tinker Hatfield, Nike's VP of Creative Design, the shoe immediately joined Hatfield's long list of iconic creations for elite athletes.
The shoe now makes its customization debut at NIKEiD in Men's, Women's and Kid's sizes. From December 18, tennis athletes and Federer fans will be able to create their own personal versions of the Zoom Vapor 9 Tour.
The customization options include the classic color variations NIKEiD is known for, but the performance customization options are the stand-out elements. Varying widths and traction patterns allow the designer to create the ideal shoe for their chosen surface and style of play.
The Tour Fit delivers a locked-down feel on the court with its more narrow silohuettte. The True Fit offers a slightly wider design for those players looking for a roomier fit. The various traction systems are optimizable for hard court, clay or grass.
The shoe's performance capabilities include an Adaptive Fit construction with "fingers" of soft material that wrap the midfoot and arch from underneath to create a glove-like fit. Extra-durable rubber protects the heel and forefoot, whilst ultra-breathable mesh helps airflow through the shoe to keep the foot comfortable.
Elements exclusive to NIKEiD include:
- Choice of hard court, clay or grass traction
- Color fades in the 'vent'
- Wide fit upper
- Laser etching on the foot frame or tongue
