Flushing, Queens is home to the historic sport landmark known as the U.S. Open, where the world’s best clash at Arthur Ashe for Grand Slam glory. To kick off the 2012 US Open in high fashion, Nike will release a super-limited version of the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 (Roger Federer’s signature model) in an area-specific colorway of royal blue and orange – the colors of the New York Mets MLB franchise that takes the field just across the street from the US Open. Federer will be wearing the Navy/Red colorway of the Vapor Tour 9 (featured as part of the Nike Tennis New York Collection) throughout the tournament, but will he switch things up to the Blue/Orange ‘NYC’ if he reaches the final? Along with this special Hyperstrike colorway is the classic Nike ‘NYC’ logo on the tongue as well as on the insole of the shoe to complete the regional vibe. A select number of pairs will be released on site at the 2012 US Open (much like last year’s ‘Tennis Ball’ Courtballistec was made available) with another batch set to drop across the river at New Jersey’s Packer Shoes. Check out the teaser pics after the jump, and with the tourney starting today, expect specific release info coming very soon.

It’s likely that you completely missed out on copping the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 ’287′, which was a tribute to Roger Federer’s record-breaking spot at #1 (take that, Mariah Carey). There’s still some more tennis to played this season, so while it certainly would be an awesome treat to see R-Fed rock his Black/Gold ’287′ PEs, it’s more likely to see him wearing thi snew White/University Blue-Black colorway of his signature shoe. Such an supremely-design sneaker built for Federer’s top-notch game was actually designed by Tinker Hatfield on an iPad of all things, but that doesn’t mean the shoe is meant for light work. Eastbay has ‘em in stock if you’re looking to switch up your grass/clay-court footwear.

No one has ever dominated men’s tennis like Roger Federer.  By any statistical measure, Federer has been better, longer than anyone else who’s ever swung a racquet, and Nike Tennis will honor the record-crushing 17-time Grand Slam winner with a new PE to celebrate his total eclipse of the man who’d most recently worn that crown.  RF just passed Pete Sampras with 287 weeks at number one in the ATP World Rankings, an accomplishment noted on the Certificate of Authenticity inside the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 Tour RF ’287′ (which Federer apparently signed as a gift to himself).  ”#1 never left Roger, and it never will,” notes the transparent shield guarding those black and gold Vapor Tour 9s; click through so you can see for yourself if they match the stature of the legend they celebrate.

Give Tinker Hatfield a pen and paper and he’ll draw up a sick prototype of a sneaker. Of course, we’re at an age where pen and paper have taken a backseat to more high-tech devices, but the idea is the same; when we first showed you the debut of the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9, we noted that Tinker designed ‘em using an iPad. So as we get closer to the 2012 tennis season, Tinker and Co. have introduced a new Black/Neon colorway of the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 that Roger Federer will wear for the season, giving Roger a visual upgrade that matches the performance advantage provided by the Vapor Tour 9 (primarily the unique fit system, which has been adopted by the Lunarglide+ 4 and Lunar Hyperdunk+). Detailed images of this sweet new sneaker below, so take a look and watch for these soon at Nike retailers.

“It’s very important to be yourself.”

Sneaker News recently showed you Tinker Hatfield’s Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9, designed for tennis superstar Roger Federer. Roger recently sat down with a number of young tennis hopefuls at the Nike Player’s Lounge in Melbourne, Australia, providing some tips and encouragement while detailing his new Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9. Roger mentions how transitioning from one shoe to the next might be tough for a tennis player, but the Zoom Vapor Tour 9 is definitely worth the switch as it provides the necessary traction and support required by a top-shelf tennis trainer while owning the lightweight and responsive feel of a running shoe. Check out the video of Roger after the jump and cop your Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 right now from id4shoes on eBay.

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. In the earlier preview of the Vapor Tour 9, we saw Tinker work his signature magic by designing the shoe on an iPad (a hand-held tablet that most use to read comics or destroy levels on Angry Birds). Using the innovative ‘finger’ fit system, the Zoom Vapor Tour 9 offers tennis performance with running shoe feel, a certain unfair advantage to Federer, who is one of the best in the game. This Fall, two more colorways of the Vapor Tour 9 will release – an Olympic-esque colorway of Obsidian and Red and another White/University Blue. Check out the quick angles of both below and stick with Sneaker News for more Nike Tennis updates. via CK.
