Swiss Shoe Brand On Releases THE ROGER Shoes For Everyday Wear

Swiss shoe brand On announced the release of limited shoes it has designed with Roger Federer. The shoes called, THE ROGER Centre Court 0-Series are designed for everyday wear and not for the tennis court. 

Federer will continue to wear Nike Air Zoom Vapor X shoes on the court even though he doesn’t have a contract with Nike.

Federer became an investor in On last year. Though the value of the financial investment was not disclosed, it has been speculated that Federer invested $50 million in the Swiss company.

The limited-edition shoe was released to coincide with the 17th anniversary of Federer’s first grand slam win at Wimbledon in 2013.

Federer told Vogue, “It’s not for tennis, it’s for the street. I hope it’s a shoe you can wear every day, sort of like your watch—something that’s so comfortable, you want to wear it all the time.”

The Roger is On’s second lifestyle shoe. On released Cloudnova earlier this spring. Cloudnova was sold out and a big success for the Swiss brand.

The Roger weights only one-third the weight of most sneakers and is made of 100% vegan leather. 

CloudTec soles that are eponymous with On are hidden in The Roger shoes. Federer challenged the design team to make them sleek and less clunky. 

The limited-edition shoes are limited to 1,000 pairs that are individually numbered and will be made available through a draw online.  If you miss out, don’t panic. There will be other opportunities in the future to buy The Roger shoes.  More colors will also be available in the future.

What Shoes Does Russian Tennis Star Andrey Rublev Wear?

Andrey Rublev is the part of the next generation of Russian tennis stars. Though he has yet to make deep a run at a grand slam, it is only a matter of time. With his powerful groundstroke game, he can beat any opponent when his game is on.

At the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, he won the gold medal in mixed doubles. His best result at a grand slam is reaching the quarterfinals, which he has done multiple times.

Rublev has an apparel and sponsorship deal with Nike. He currently wears the popular Nike Air Zoom Vapor Pro shoes on the court.


  • Popular shoe among top players – both men and women
  • Delivers outstanding performance
  • Lightweight, comfortable and provides a good fit
  • Good ventilation
  • Not durable (especially if you are hard on your shoes)
  • Traction is okay but could be better

Sports runs in Rublev’s family. His dad Andrey is a former boxer and his mom Marina is a tennis coach.  His sister Arina is also a tennis coach.

The Nike Air Zoom Vapor Pro shoes are lightweight and are one of the best lightweight shoes on the market.  These shoes give your feet a lock-in fit when you put them on.  The shoes are very comfortable and provide excellent support to allow you move freely on the court. The shoes have redesigned uppers that more lightweight than the previous versions and provide additional stability.

These shoes have a unique design on the perimeter of the outsole to improve traction on the court. This allows you to make quick cuts on the court and improves your movement on the court. 

The shoes are durable enough considering their lightweight and will tolerate the wear and tear well for normal use. The shoes come in multiple colors and will make you look fashionable on the court just like Roger Federer, who used to wear a predecessor version of this shoe before moving to On shoes. 

Bottom Line

Nike Air Zoom Vapor Pro shoes are one of the most popular tennis shoes on the market and for good reason.  The shoes are lightweight and provide good traction on the court.  The shoes are also extremely comfortable to wear.
