Tennis star Roger Federer has teamed up with famous Nike designer Tinker Hatfield on the creation of the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour, an innovative tennis shoe that can put up with rigorous use on the tennis court. (Typically, tennis shoes don't last very long due to the aggressiveness of the game.)

Hatfield designed the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour to deliver extreme strength and a superior, customized fit that adapts to the person's foot when worn. The shoe has been created to fit like a glove, and it features a special system that comprises 'fingers' on the shoe's exterior with a loop system on the interior. The fingers will mold to the person's foot shape when the laces are tied tightly. Further, along with exceptional lightness and comfort from springy cushioning, wearers get a durable shoe that also keeps the foot cool.

As Hatfield describes, the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour is "a combination of a lot of hard work and team work between Roger Federer and our folks here. This shoe is the future of tennis."
