New Arrival: Nike Vapor 9.5 Flyknit

The latest execution of Roger Federer’s Nike shoe of choice has finally arrived and just in time for the spring/summer season.

The very first thing our customers ask us is “so what is the difference between this new Vapor Flyknit and the Vapor 9.5 Tour I’ve worn for years”?

Nike Vapor Flyknit

This new Vapor Flyknit offers an all new upper which is impregnated with Nike’s flywire which literally wraps the foot giving the player amazing stability without adding additional weight to the shoe making it one of the lightest tennis specific shoes on the market. This new Vapor Flyknit uses the exact same EVA midsole with Zoom Air in the heel as the Vapor 9.5 Tour which adds responsiveness and cushioning for a soft ride on the court. This new model also uses the identical TPU midfoot shank as the Vapor 9.5 Tour which is essential in eliminating twisting during play. Finally, both models share the same outsole comprised of Nike’s XDR rubber compound which offers good durability and traction on whichever type of court surface you are playing or training on.

If you are wanting to see for yourself why Roger Federer insists on using this model, come by and try on a pair and see for yourself how fantastic this shoe really is.

The new Nike Vapor Flyknit is now available at First Serve Tennis.
