As the public face of On, the highly-regarded Swiss performance brand, Roger Federer is responsible for the aptly-named The Roger Centre Court — a hybrid casual/tennis shoe that’s heavily influenced by classic court style but boasts plenty of modern tech. After its debut in an all-white makeup last year, the Centre Court is now set to return in another crisp colorway dubbed “Ice.”
Much like its predecessor, this new style’s upper is constructed of durable white leather and stamped with gold Roger/On branding both under the eyestays and around the heel. Where it differs, however, is towards the rear: both the mesh collar and TPU heel clip are done up in a classic gray shade for contrast. You’ll also see a small red Swiss flag pinned between the collar and the heel overlay.
Down below, the shoe’s most notable performance feature is provided by the midsole’s combo of On’s signature Speedboard plate and CloudTec cushioning system. Working in tandem, the setup provides responsive-yet-soft cushioning, equally apt at handling a long walk or a casual tennis match. Classic gum outsoles round off the look.
On’s The Roger Centre Court “Ice” will release at retailers like Afew on February 2, and is priced at $200 USD.
