Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour

“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.

Nike just unveiled its 2012 line-up of Nike Tennis footwear, but a special highlight goes to the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 – Roger Federer’s signature shoe designed by none other Tinker Hatfield.

This Fall, two more colorways of the Vapor Tour 9 will release – a colorway of Obsidian and Red and another White/University Blue.

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.
