Roger Federer, Wimbledon 2017

Roger Federer defeated an injured Marin Cilic in straight sets 6-3 6-1 6-4, to win a record eight Wimbledon title, his 19th overall.

To honor his victory grace, Nike is releasing a limited number of all-white NIKELAB Oscillate Evolve RF shoes (the style pays homage to 1997’s Tinker Hatfield-designed Nike Air Oscillate, which is one of Federer’s favorite Nike Tennis silhouettes) customized with a laser-etched 8 on the heel. The shoe will be available July 17 at NikeTown London and 21 Mercer.
