Kith Exclusive: New Roger Federer On THE ROGER Pro Tennis SignatureRelease: 1 July 2021
Roger Federer has been deeply invested in the local brand from his native Switzerland, On – not only as an investor, but also as one of their signature athletes. As such, he’s landed a new performance model that’s straightforwardly known as THE ROGER Pro. To help elevate its presence, this new court-ready colourway has launched exclusively at Kith.
Tennis is a completely different ball game to running, so On have adapted different tech for THE ROGER Pro that’s specifically been designed the play style of the Swiss maestro. In fact, they’ve gone further and based the last around scans of Federer’s actual feet. Also, On’s Speedboard sole plate has been tuned for the explosive and rapid movements of the sport – peep that massive carbon-fibre arch plate. Roger certainly ain’t messing around.
Up top, all the hallmark features of a modern tennis shoe are present. Lightweight mesh uppers are essential for optimal ventilation, and they’re reinforced with welded and stitch-free panels to prevent irritation. Despite all the ‘Swiss Engineering’ happening up top and bottom, THE ROGER Pro employs a traditional eyelet lacing system. Don’t fix it if it ain’t broken!
The only place to cop On’s THE ROGER Pro is from Kith’s retail and online stores right now.
