The man behind some of the most iconic sneakers of all time is back with a new pair of signature kicks for Swiss tennis star Roger Federer.
The Zoom Vapor 9 Tour was designed by Tinker Hatfield to be both lightweight and supportive. Using a special lacing system, the laces, when pulled tight, essentially reach all the way down to the arch of the foot, providing support and a customized lockdown fit. Finally, a TPU frame at the bottom edge of the upper helps to keep the foot and upper from rolling over the sole when moving laterally.
Check out this new video as Tinker and and Federer discuss the design and inspiration behind the new tennis kicks.
