The rumors about a collaboration between Jordan Brand and Roger Federer have been proven correct. Nike has unveiled the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3, which draws design inspiration from Jordan IIIs and technology from Federer’s Zoom Vapro 9.5.
With the signature elephant print, white/cement leather upper, Jumpman tongue, and Nike Air detailing on the back, the shoe most definitely evokes the iconic White Cement IIIs. As Federer’s shoe of choice on the court, the shoe features Dynamic Fit at the upper, which works in combination with Phylon and an Air Max sole unit to provide comfort and stability.
The result is a collaboration which combines the trademarks of two living legends. Interestingly enough, both models from which this collaboration draws inspiration from were designed by Tinker Hatfield.
The shoe is set to release online and at New York area retailers 21 Mercer, Nike Town NY, Flight 23, and Dover Street Market.
