Kei Nishikori Serves Up a Nike Air Zoom Vapor X LTR PE
Nike are honouring the Grand Slam era's most successful Japanese tennis player — Kei Nishokori — with a special Air Zoom Vapor X LTR PE.
There’s a wave print on the upper referencing Nishikori's hometown of Matsue, which translates roughly to ‘Water City’. The sock liner print tips its hat to the Japanese cherry blossoms, while NikeCourt appears in Katakana syllabary on the shoelaces — a nice bit of finesse.
The NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X LTR PE ‘Nishikori’ releases globally October 1 on Nike.com and at select retailers.
