Roger Federer is a superstar athlete who is celebrated for his moves on the tennis court, but there’s no denying that he’s also known for his better-than-average sneaker game. The Swiss sportsman, who turns 37 today, is a longtime Nike athlete who wears the brand well.
In honor of Federer’s birthday, we take a look at his best game-time shoe moments to date.
At the Miami Open in March, the star tennis player showed off his Air Max 95-inspired shoe, the NikeCourt Vapor RF x AM95, in the statement-making mismatched “Greedy” colorway. The bold design features a suede upper, a Vapor outsole and colors influenced directly by the courts where he has collected titles before.

Meanwhile, at the Austrailian Open in January — where he became the first man to win 20 Grand Slam titles, putting him just behind Serena Williams’ Open Era record of 23 — Federer rocked Nike Air Zoom Vapor X tennis shoes in the brand’s signature Melbourne “Lava Glow” pink shade. The vibrant shoe popped against his mostly white outfit while perfectly matching the pink stripe in his shirt.
