Roger Federer 2017 Miami Open Nike Outfit – The Swiss maestro makes his return to the southern Florida, for the 2017 Miami Open, presented by Itaú. Federer missed the tournament last year due to a stomach virus, but enters the event this year after winning his 18th grand slam, at the Australian Open in January, and claiming his fifth BNP Paribas Open title a week ago. Federer will carry over his Nike gear from Indian Wells into Miami, with stadium green, black, and volt as prominent colors. The new outfit is 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.
With titles in 2005 and 2006, the 35-year-old Swiss will seek his third title at the Miami Open.
