At the 2012 Australian Open back in January, Roger Federer debuted the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour, his most advanced tennis shoe to date. Created by Tinker Hatfield, the shoe was an instant classic, featuring a foot frame for increased support, Lunarlon and Zoom Air in the heel for lightweight cushioning, and finally Adaptive Fit that wraps around the midfoot for a personalized fit.

The shoe now makes its customization debut at NIKEiD in Men’s, Women’s and Kid’s sizes. You can now create your own personal version of the Zoom Vapor 9 Tour.

Twenty years ago, the Nike Tennis design team created the “burning ball” logo inspired by the type of tennis Nike stood for: fast, furious and unapologetic. The mark was first used on the Nike Air Tech Challenge and was added to the neon colors, denim and spandex of that era’s Challenge Court collection.

To pay homage to 1992, Nike Tennis has created a new Flame collection. The Air Zoom Vapor 9 Tour, Air Max Courtballistec 4.3 and Breathe 2K12 have been released with the same visual design for the first time.

Roger Federer will wear the Air Zoom Vapor 9 Tour in London in November. The collection is available on www.nike.com beginning November 1.
