Here is what Roger Federer would have worn for Wimbledon 2018 had he been able to strike a new deal with Nike. The Swiss has instead signed a new contract with Uniqlo after his Nike deal expired in March with the pair unable to agree on new terms. The outfits are planned quite far ahead so Nike had the following scheduled for SW19.
Naturally, it's an all-white affair as per the rules at the All England Club with a little bit of blue detailing on the logo. I'm a big fan of the shoes with the light blue Nike tick and I think this is a pretty good effort all around, they've even brought back the pants which he hasn't worn since 2009.
The shoes pictured below are not grass court pimpled soles and don't feature the RF logo or slam count like the ones he'll probably be wearing during matches. But the design is the same. For those eagle-eyed readers, you'll also see he still has the “7” on the shoes he wore today in practice. Is Nike having a dig? 😆
The only thing I don't like is that it's called the Essentials Range which sounds rather like the cheap section in a high street clothing store except these are anything but cheap! You can check it out below:
Let me know your thoughts in the comments, do you like the design?
