On July 8, 2012, Roger Federer did what Roger Federer does best: break records. After capturing his 7th Wimbledon title on July 8, Federer also secured the all-time record for the number of weeks as the top-ranked tennis player in the world, surpassing his idol Pete Sampras' record of 286 weeks. To mark the momentous achievement, Nike is releasing a limited edition of the Swiss maestro's signature tennis shoe, the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour, which match the pair given to him soon after winning the title that were obviously under tight lock and key. Releasing only 287 pairs, the limited edition sneaker will arrive in a special black and gold colorway, packaged in an equally special box numbered to represent a particular week of his reign along with a certificate of authenticity signed by the man himself. Each pair also feature an embroidered gold RF logo on the tongue an embossed "287" in gold on the black heel. Only available at Nike's online store, the Nike Tennis Zoom Vapor RF 287 released this morning for $287. An unbelievable shoe for an unbelievable achievement.
