We’ve touched on tennis giant Roger Federer’s style before, but at this year’s U.S. Open, the FedEx man is taking things to a whole new level. Photos have surfaced of an exclusive version of Federer’s Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9, which features elephant print on the forefoot and heel—a clear callout of the Air Jordan III. As fate would have it, Tinker Hatfield, the designer of many iconic Air Jordans, including the III, also designed the Zoom Vapor, so this mash-up is really no surprise. Federer’s logo appears on the midsole, and even though nothing here is official, you can expect these kicks to show up on Federer’s feet at some point as he tries to capture his sixth U.S. Open title.
