First spotted on Rafael Nadal during his jaw-dropping performance at Flushing Meadows, the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor Cage 4 will soon be available for purchase by the general public. This is a special one for the budding tennis aficionados out there.
This model was designed by Nike with one question in mind: how can a performance tennis shoe return more energy and allow for a faster transition to the next hit? The end result combines the speed of the Vapor series with the durability of the Cage line to create the ultimate champion's shoe. The silhouette dons a purple, black and white colour scheme – patterned with hints of orange, indigo and red on its heel – and the upper's charm is two-fold: part-studded, part-sleek, split right down the middle.
While Nike hybrids are no longer big news, the merging of two revolutionary technologies such as this is bound to attract some attention!
You can get your hands on the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor Cage 4 from Nike and select retailers on January 2.
