Here we have the man, the myth, the legend... Roger Federer.
The tennis great and 19-time Grand Slam champion explored the shelves at Stadium Goods in Complex's latest Sneaker Shopping episode.
For some, it will be surprising to see Federer speak astutely about sneaker culture – especially models from the Air Jordan line. That includes his signature shoe, the Zoom Vapor Tour AJ3.
"He is an incredible mind, super inspired, and very fast working, I find," Federer said of working with Nike design legend Tinker Hatfield, who created the Zoom Vapor Tour AJ 3. A conversation about tennis sneakers taking at least 90-minutes to break-in (causing discomfort during on-court play) inspired the design, which amends the classic Air Jordan 3 silhouette with a low-top look suited for competition.
