Roger Federer's US Open shoes at the upcoming Grand Slam won't just get him mad style points and performance advantages, they'll also ensure that he has the support of the greatest player to have ever played the game -- of basketball.

The NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 was unveiled by Federer during his first-round match against Marinko Matosevic, and is a shoe that bears a distinct resemblance to the Air Jordan III. Michael Jordan was in the crowd to see the kicks in action.

The classic Air Jordan III and the Zoom Vapor 9 Tour AJ 3 US Open shoes were both designed by legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield.

Both Jordan and Federer are considered by most to be the greatest basketball and tennis players of all time respectively, and this beautifully designed shoe is destined to go down in the annals of sneakerdom as an all-time great in its own right.
