The Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9.5 has been a hit amongst tennis players and now Nike Sportswear will be upgrading the model. Introducing the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9.5 Flyknit which will debut tomorrow.
Rather than program an entirely new Flyknit structure, NikeCourt designers borrowed construction from the Nike Flyknit Air Max. The performance running shoe features a strong, dense knit, which helps deliver the support necessary for tennis’ lateral movements. While the tighter Flyknit weave in the midfoot provides support, open construction in the toe delivers added breathability. Also, with this Flyknit structure, NikeCourt designers could deliver stability while eliminating the Zoom Vapor 9.5’s signature Dynamic Fit system. Simplifying the construction of the shoe helps further reduce its weight.
Aside from the new upper, the shoe maintains much of the technology that has made it a favorite amongst tour players. The Phylon midsole features a Nike Zoom Air unit in the heel to deliver low profile, responsive cushioning. A TPU frame wraps the midfoot for additional stability, while the herringbone traction pattern helps shore up grip on hard-court surfaces (Federer’s shoe for SW19 will feature an outsole designed for grass-court play).
The Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9.5 Flyknit in White and Neutral Grey will release on June 25th, 2016 and retail for $200. Check out more photos below.
