The 2012 US Open is off and running in Flushing, Queens as the world’s greatest tennis stars convened once again for this annual tradition.

More of the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 ‘NYC’ and the t-shirt below, so take a look and let us know if you’ll be trying to grab a pair as Federer tries to add #18 to his belt at the US Open!

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.
