With the Australian Open kicking off in 10 days, Sneaker Report is keeping our ear to the ground for the latest tennis shoe releases.

Nike rolled out the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour in what looks like an Australian Open colorway, featuring the Lunarlon cushioning TPU footframe of its predecessor. The Dynamic Fit system has been reconfigured to a textile material that wraps along the midfoot and arch for more surface area which means more room for Open-themed prints instead of the finger-like support system that the Vapor 9 relied so heavily on.

Now we'll have to wait and see if Roger Federer takes to the new version of the shoe (which tennis players are not known for) as we gear up for the Australian Open.
