With the US Open only a few days away, Nike Tennis provides us with a look at the new dubs they’ve designed for two of their flagship superstars, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Since our main focus is sneakers, we set the polo, short, and jacket sets aside to bring you a look at the footwear end of things. As usual, both ATP players are presented with two sets of color palettes for the US Open, one which features lighter colors for their day matches and the other which includes darker shades for their evening bouts. Both of Federer’s signature sneakers, the Nike Lunar Vapor Tour, appear with a White leather base with Light Blue accents on his day pair and Navy accents on his evening pair. Nadal’s signature, the Nike Air Court Ballistec 2.3, takes into account his flamboyant personally, using a vibrant Hot Lime hue to bring attention to itself. The day pair features a White base with Lime accents, while the pair designed for his evening matches, dubbed the “Neon Nadal” by consumers, consists of Lime throughout the entire upper with contrast Black details.
All four of the sneakers, and the new gear Nadal and Federer will be wearing, are available now at select Nike Tennis retailers, such as the Tennis Warehouse.
