Nike knows it's tacky but at the same time they like $$$.

I've always thought the "RF" cup was also inadequate and a little bit ridiculous in my eyes, but recently when going live in a tournament, enjoying that I was not the only Roger-fan, happy to know I could share that, and also as he goes old and I have more the feeling of what will go, I've started appreciating it.

Probably I will buy one one day, but I still have something which prevents me from doing it.

I can clearly see the pleasure I would have having those shoes.
And if it's really the price, $287 doesn't look expensive to me, I'm sure they will go in one hour or so

Recently I learnt that there are "platinum" limited editions of Barbie dolls

RF stuff is quite expensive but it is nice to have a way to distinguish some of the RF fans. I reckon I'll buy a cap soonish but I don't usually wear one. I'd love to find a green or blue one.

I have four RF caps. And one RF t-shirt. And one RF polo tee from Credit Suisse.

Nike should release commemorative 287 caps. What a missed opportunity.

The thing the haters don't understand is that Roger has so many records he is yet to break (which he probably will), Nike will complete a whole clothing attire which just celebrates his records .

Can't wait to go to the AO next year decked out from head to toe with RF attire although I sense I will have to make my own custom panties

Not if Nike has anything to do with it. I'm sure they can arrange something for you.

The thing is I don't think Nike's making money on this. Limited editions like this gotta cost a hell of a lot more to be profitable. The marketing campaign only must cost them more than the total sales.

It's just their "gift" to Roger and his fans. Good intentions people, good intentions.

it's not a gift, it's a great advertising for their company

Personally these moments are the only moments when I realize that Fed wears Nike's sportswears

I am deeply disappointed wasn't donning a RF cap when he played Federer in RG. What a gimpy tard.
