Yesterday we kicked off our favorites of 2012 countdown with the playtesters’ favorite racquets of the year. Next up, we pick our favorite shoes from the past year.
Completely redesigned for 2012, the Vapor impressed our playtesters. Roger Federer’s shoe looks great and fits a variety of foot shapes well with its adaptive fit technology. It did so well in our tests that Chris went further than saying it was his favorite shoe of the year.
Chris: “With its unbelievable fit and feel, the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour quickly became my favorite shoe of all time. The adaptive lace system allows the shoe to wrap my feet in incredible support and comfort. The shoe is lightweight, very fast feeling, offers great traction and looks absolutely killer. Nike shoe designer Tinker Hatfield took tennis shoe performance to a whole new level when he penned this one.”
