Nike legend Tinker Hatfield has collaborated with tennis star Roger Federer to develop the new Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour.

““An innovative fit system uses “fingers” on the outside and a loop system on the inside. When the laces get cinched tight, the fingers mold to the shape of the individual foot, resulting in a customized fit that continues to adapt as the foot moves during a match. Wrapping the laces all the way to the bottom of the arch further enhances the glove-like feel and a synthetic-leather quarter panel overlay adds to the firm fit.

Lightweight mesh throughout the shoe helps keep the foot cool. And the TPU foot-frame from the mid-foot to the heel delivers stability and protection during the quick slides and directional changes of a competitive match. Rubber overlays in high-wear areas improve durability. Soft and springy Lunar cushioning and a Nike Zoom unit in the heel work together for exceptional comfort and impact protection.”

Roger Federer chooses a classic, but not conventional look with highly advanced performance features. Dri-FIT UV jersey fabric in this polo wicks away sweat and provides protection from harmful UV rays. The sleeves are a touch longer than is typical, delivering added UV protection. A unique yard dye stripe design in this polo wraps around the body and the narrow contrast color stripe adds a modern take to a familiar classic on the court.
Designed to be paired with the RF Oz Polo, these well crafted woven shorts combine performance fabrics and enduring design details.

Rafael Nadal keeps his cool in this ultra lightweight and breathable crew with his signature bull logo on the back hem and a vivid geometric sublimation print over the mesh shoulder panels. The focus on the perfect 360 degree fit resulted in removing the seam at the top of the armhole for better freedom of movement and adding bonded elastic taping to boldly reinforce seams at front and back. Mesh sleeves and side panels increase ventilation and reduce weight while Dri-FIT fabrics throughout help to draw sweat away from the skin.
