2011 Nike Lunar Vapor 8 Tour
Roger Federer's choice of shoe, this version features the RF logo on the heel. The Lunar Vapor 8 Tour offers light weight speed with the support and stability needed to compete at the highest level. Comfortable right out of the box, the Lunar 8 Tour is ready for match day performance on the first wear. With the use of Lunarlon cushioning through the midsole, this shoe offers a responsive ride to help promote maximum court speed without sacrificing comfort. The overall fit is roomier with a lower ride through the arch support. Nike has continued the trend of keeping the fit roomier to make it more suitable to a wider variety of foot types, and we have found slightly more room here compared to the previous version. Nike's XDR outsole material in a herringbone pattern offers traction on all court surfaces. Flex grooves cut into the outsole promote faster court movement as they allow the shoe to flex with your feet. The grooves also help promote better contact between the outsole and the court surface during extreme lateral forces providing added grip when you need it most. Improved comfort and a ride that is both responsive and plush make this a dynamite update to the Vapor lineage.
