To kick off the 2012 US Open in high fashion, Nike has released a super-limited version of the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 (Roger Federer’s signature model). This limited version features a Royal Blue and Orange color-scheme with the “NYC” logo on the tongue and insole.

Released in only four locations across New York: NYC Racquet Sports, Masons Tennis, Packer Shoes, and the Nike retail space on tournament grounds.

A very limited quantity will be sold today at Packer Shoes, with each pair accompanied by an amazing NYC Tennis t-shirt designed by UNDERCRWN (a play of Mr. Met, tennis, and the brand’s signature graphics). $175 will get you the shoes and the t-shirt, but the tees will also be sold separately once the limited run of the shoes sell out.
