“I asked Tinker (Hatfield) to design something that would give give me the comfort and breathability of a running shoe, but was closer to the ground to benefit tennis players” that was the original insight from Roger Federer to Tinker Hatfield the VP of Creative Design at NIKE.
The result of that collaboration between athlete and designer was the NIKE Zoom Vapor 9 Tour. First debuting during the hard-court season in early 2012 the shoe immediately joined Hatfield’s long list of iconic athlete-specific designs.

Whilst the original design was created with a mesh upper and used during the hard-court season, the latest update is adapted for the clay court season and will debut in Paris this May. Replacing the mesh that adorned the shoe earlier this is a a synthetic leather that will perform ideally on clay.
