Nike Air Max Courtballistec 2.3 - Hot Lime/Black-Nano Grey-Black
What shoe was Rafael Nadal wearing when he completed the Career Grand Slam on Monday night?
words_Brandon Richard Prior to Monday night's Men's U.S. Open Final, only six men in history completed the Career Grand Slam (winning Wimbledon, Australia Open, French Open, U.S. Open) in tennis. More amazing is that only two men had accomplished the feat since 1961 - Andre Agassi and Roger Federer. So to say that winning the Career Slam is a sign of greatness would be a vast understatement, considering guys like Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg, Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe can't say that their name is on the list. On Monday night, Spain's Rafael Nadal etched his name in stone as one of the game's greats by winning the U.S. Open, the last tournament he needed to complete the Career Grand Slam. Additionally, Nadal joins Agassi as the only two men to own the Career Golden Slam, which adds an Olympic Gold Medal into the equation. As much of a statement as Nadal made with his racket, the attention of sneakerheads drifted down to his footwear. Nadal wore an eye-popping colorway of his Air Max Courtballistec 2.3 shoe. This shoe features a hot lime DragOnX upper, with black accents on the Swoosh, tongue, midsole and outsole. Nano grey is spotted working the inner liner. Lime green once again pops from the visible Air unit. You can pick up Rafa's Career Grand Slam winning shoe now at NikeStore. Hurry though, as sizes are moving fast.
