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.

Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 – Fall 2012 Releases

January 24th, 2012 by | 2 comments

nike zoom vapor 9 tour fall 2012 Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9   Fall 2012 Releases

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.

It only happens a few times each year, so you know when Sneaker News turns our attention to cutting edge tennis shoes, we’re getting close to a Grand Slam event.   The Australian Open is the first of the four major tournaments each year, and Nike’s sending two of the top three men, two of the top five ladies and two up and comers in fresh new gear.  Arguable GOAT and four-time Aussie winner Roger Federer gets a Swiss-style kit along with neon accents on his Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9, while arch nemesis Rafael Nadal opts for green on his shirt but more of a focus on bright blue with the latest Air Max Courtballistec 4.3.  Young Croation Bernard Tomic proved with his upset of the 22 seed in Round 1 that he’s deserving of recognition if not yet a signature sneaker, as is the case for ladies 5-seed Na Li.  Nike keeps the WMNS side on equal footing thanks to a new Air Max Mirabella 3 for Serena Williams along with Maria Sharapova’s Lunar Speed 3 lowtops.  Click through to check out the entire collection and let us know who your money’s on down under.

Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9

Nike introduces the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 – a high-performance tennis shoe designed specifically for tennis superstar Roger Federer. For the Zoom Vapor Tour 9, Tinker Hatfield was presented with the challenge of creating a lightweight, breathable shoe that could withstand the rigors of the game of tennis; that balance is a bit difficult to find as running is dependent on rhythm while tennis hinges on blasts of movements in 360-degree direction. Using the innovative ‘finger’ fit system, which allows the upper to mold precisely to the contours of the foot, Hatfield created a shoe that feels like a running shoe, but performs for Federer’s game. The combination of Zoom and Lunar cushioning provides an unparalleled level of comfort, while the rubber overlays improve durability at all major high-wear points. Check out the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 as well as a video with Hatfield and Federer below to get a full overview of this latest innovation in Nike Tennis footwear.

Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 SL – Roger Federer Paris 2012

Is the 2011 U.S. Open a must-win for Roger Federer? He certainly has his work cut out for him, as the worst-case scenario for the Swiss tennis player has him facing the #1 ranked Novak Djokovic in the Semi-Finals and #2 ranked Rafael Nadal in the Finals. If Federer can’t pull out this Major win, it would halt his streak of nine straight seasons of winning at least one Major tournament, but even if he falls short, that won’t take away from the greatness and other-worldly mystique that Federer has built over the last decade. Nike’s already got 2012 in its sights for Roger, as it plans to outfit him in the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 SL; it features an all-new tech-package, opting for lightweight and breathable materials, a unique upper that allows for maximum flexion, and Nike Zoom for supreme comfort. Accompanying the Zoom Vapor Tour 9 SL is the Nike RF Smash Clay Polo, which should keep Roger cool and composed during his matches. Check out the images of Roger Federer’s 2012 Paris Collection after the jump and let us know who you think will win the final leg of the Grand Slam! via CK.
