flashback: a kangaroo on roger's shoe


Roger Federer took his first (of three) Grand Slam titles this year at the Australian Open. He beat Chilean Fernando Gonzalez 7-6 (2), 6-4, 6-4 in the final.

While it might seem that Nike kept Roger’s outfit subdued for the fortnight in Melbourne, make no mistake that they were crafting a look specifically for this budding fashionista.

His Aussie shoes were customized with a kangaroo and two marks (not discernible from this photo) which represented his two titles (’04 and ’06).

And here’s a shirt worn for training.
