NEW Federer NYC Pop Up, Nike Zoom Vapor Air Jordan 3 & Air Zoom Oscillate, Signed Fed Gear
Updated 08/23: We’ve got Nike news and notes for you as the USO cranks up in one week! Remember the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 from 2014? The Jordan Brand/Nike RF hybrid…is baaaaaack.
Nike Zoom Vapor Air Jordan 3
According to Nike there’s going to be a RF19 Pop-Up store set up this week in Manhattan. This curated pop-up will be located at Kith SoHo, 644 Broadway, New York City, (hours 10am-9pm) and will be open from August 23 to August 27. The space honors the tennis icon’s style and New York City’s sneaker culture by featuring Federer’s latest NikeCourt Collection and a new iteration of the Nike Zoom Vapor Air Jordan 3. This style is in “Fire Red” and will reportedly cost $200. (Update: they’re going for a bit more than that on a certain online bidding site.)

Autographed Fed gear
So, first we’ve got the shoes. Must be the shoes. And here’s where the sneakers get really expensive. Like, buy these or a new Honda expensive. Check this one out! This customized Nike Vapor 9.5 Flyknit shoe was autographed and worn by Roger Federer at one point during his record setting two weeks at the 2017 Wimbledon. The shoe has some wear and does not come with an insole as Roger uses his own custom insoles and removes them from the shoes. (What? For 10K, let’s have ’em!) Proceeds benefit the Roger Federer Foundation, and you get a COA (Certificate of Authenticity.) BTW, this is just for the left shoe. You want the right? That’s another 10K.
You need the matching shirt, too. Go big, or go home. This is the Roger Federer Autographed Wimbledon 2017 Henley (Worn). This one is 10K.
BTW check out the The Nike Air Zoom Oscillate! (This one honors Sampras)
Nike has also released an update to the famous 1990s Pete Sampras shoe, the Air Oscillate. Wore that one back in the day, and there was nothing like it. Such a smooth fitting lightweight shoe. This is the Air Zoom Oscillate, in white/navy…Find it: TW/USA • TW/Europe….
And if you’re not familiar with the original 1990s Oscillate, here’s what it looked like.
Ah, we almost forgot the Roger Federer Autographed Wimbledon 2017 Tracksuit Top. Yep, 10K.
