"I follow all the websites, and I call the Nike guys and say, 'Is there a chance for me to get that sneaker, too?'" Federer explains. "And they will say, 'OOF, it’s really hard, but we’ll make that exception for you.' I’ve had them tell me 'no' in the past, too, so it’s OK."
One has to wonder what tier of Nike product it is that the tennis superstar doesn't have access to, but he unfortunately doesn't name any of the sneakers he's been denied in the piece.
