Tonight, Roger Federer will make history when he steps out onto the court unveiling the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3.

Two iconic Tinker Hatfield designed shoes collide, honoring two athletes who have mastered their respective sports, Michael Jordan and Roger Federer. The NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 combines the sport innovation of the Zoom Vapor 9.5 with the attitude and off-court appeal of the iconic Air Jordan III. Featuring Dynamic Fit technology, a Zoom unit housed in cushioned and supportive Phylon and a low-profile upper, along with signature RF graphics, taken from the Vapor 9.5.

Bringing the Jordan element to the party is a full premium white-based tumbled leather upper with a red embroidered Jumpman logo on the tongue, elephant print detailing and original 'Nike Air' branding on the back heel tab. All of this coming in the classic AJ3 white and cement grey colorway.

The 'Air Jordan 3' NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 hits nike.com as well as North America NikeLab locations, Niketown NY and Flight 23 on Wednesday, August 27 in limited quantities.
