Roger Federer 2017 Australian Open Nike Outfit – the 17-time grand slam champion is back in action, after a long layoff to properly heal his surgically repaired knee. Coming off a good week in Perth for the Hopman Cup, the Swiss maestro arrived in Melbourne yesterday, putting in quality time on Rod Laver Arena for his first practice session at the 2017 Australian Open. The 35-year-old Swiss will sport the latest from Nike, part of the NikeCourt Spring 2017 line, including the flagship NikeCourt Zoom Vapor 9.5 Flyknit shoes, an evolution of the iconic Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour shoes.
The new Flykit models feature breathable, lightweight Flyknit fabric that wraps the foot for a second-skin fit. Nike Zoom Air provides stability and responsive cushioning. The NikeCourt Zoom Vapor 9.5 Flyknit shoes retain the vintage characteristics of the previous Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour, having phylon foam midsole with Zoom Air heel unit for responsive cushioning, TPU midfoot shank for lateral support and stability, and XDR rubber at heel and forefoot for durable traction. Prominent colors of the new gear are shades first, white and black, complimented by hyper orange, stadium green, lava glow and volt.
