Nike responds on Twitter to Roger Federer’s shoe ban

Roger Federer tried to make a strong fashion statement during his opening round match at Wimbledon. Officials were not amused. The 7-time Wimbledon champ came out decked in orange soled shoes, a no-no at the All England Club.

They were banned immediately after his match.

Today, Nike “swooped” in, offering their support.


The whole thing appears to be some kind of marketing ploy. Nike said they would “make a bold style statement in London” and now, as of Wednesday afternoon, the shoes are sold out on their website.

So, yea, good job, good effort Nike.
