Nike Reveals the "Federer Forever" Air Force 1
“Betterer with age.”
Roger Federer first topped the ATP world rankings 14 years ago. Now, at the age of 36, Federer has further cemented his status as the G.O.A.T., becoming the oldest tennis player to ever hold the top spot. Naturally, Nike is celebrating the occasion, hooking Fed up with a pair of customized Air Force 1s.
Billed as the “Federer Forever,” the unique kicks come decked out in premium leather and sport bold gold Swooshes along with a stark white sole unit. What really sets these apart, however, is the appearance of Federer’s signature logo on the tongue, not to mention special “RF1” embroidery across the heels. Best of all, though? The shoes come in a custom wooden box that celebrates his 302 weeks at the top of the rankings.
Sadly, however, Fed fans won’t have a chance to own a pair of their own anytime soon: according to Nike, the special “RF1” was crafted solely for the Swiss legend.
