"Jordan Inspired. Federer Approved." That's the tagline for the Michael Jordan tennis shoes Roger Federer debuted on court today. They were a big hit on Twitter and are likely to be an even bigger hit in the stores when they go on sale tomorrow. The shoes are called NIKECOURT Zoom Vapor AJ3 and are expected to cost are $200. If I was a man I'd totally be picking up a pair of these bad boys.
But forget the shoes for a minute, because Michael Jordan himself turned up to watch Federer take on Marinko Matosevic today. He was a hit with both players, with Matosevic yelling out loud during the match, "I just wanna be like Mike," and pointing at Jordan, who was sitting in Federer's box.
