Nike contract expired more than a month ago
chaussures nike pas cher Federer recently signed a new contract with Uniqlo worth over $300 million (R4 billion) over ten years and is guaranteed even if he retires before it expires. The new deal technically ends Federer's 24-year relationship with Nike, but it appears the two sides are not entirely out of each other's lives yet. While Federer was in Uniqlo apparel for his opening match at Wimbledon, he was still wearing Nike shoes. It is not unusual for an athlete to wear shoes from a company they are not endorsing — he has to wear something — but it is interesting to note that the shoes were still personalised with a unique logo specific for this year's tournament even though his Nike contract expired more than a month ago. chaussures nike soldes Here is a close-up of the shoes. In addition to Federer's Nike RF logo, the logo on the right shoe has the No. 8, reflecting how many Wimbledon's he has won. The 36-year-old eight-time Wimbledon champion penned a contract with Japanese apparel giant Uniqlo, virtually severing a two-decade association with Nike in the process. His deal has been widely estimated to be worth $408 million over 10 years, compared to the $13.6 million he was reportedly making each year from US heavyweight Nike. Curiously, he was still wearing Nike shoes for his 6-1 6-3 6-4 win over Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic on Centre Court at the All England Club. chaussure nike en Ligne In a fashion reveal that had all the drama of Rihanna stepping on the red carpet at the Met Gala, Federer ended weeks of speculation with his wordless entrance onto Centre Court in a jacket made by Uniqlo, the Japanese casual wear designer. It was both a major surprise and the revelation of the worst-kept secret in tennis. Since the start of June, there had been reports that Federer’s 21-year relationship with Nike would end and a $300 million deal with Uniqlo was imminent. The outerwear clothier wanted to expand its worldwide footprint and make a splash before the biggest showcase in sports – the 2020 Summer Olympics – came to Japan. chaussure nike en Ligne pas cher But Federer showed up in Stuttgart and Halle wearing his usual Nike gear and then, last week, the company released his outfit scripting for Wimbledon, suggesting that maybe a reconciliation was still in the works. And then Federer showed up to the dance with a different girl on his arm. The unveiling showed a flair for theatrics that Federer probably enjoys more than he lets on (you can’t be friends with Anna Wintour if you don’t revel in the show a little bit). If you weren’t proclaiming the end of Roger Federer as we knew him or wondering about the repercussions of four-square inches.
