Jordan Discusses Federer's Input Toward Air Jordan Tennis Shoe
Hornets Owner Michael Jordan sat in Roger Federer's box last night and talked about the Air Jordan Hybrid R.F. shoes Federer was wearing in his opening-round U.S. Open match. Jordan: “He’s done a lot of input in it. One of my shoes was his favorite, which was the (Air Jordan) 3. I told Roger when they first came up with the idea, I said, ‘Look, as long as you have input, you control it. I know nothing about tennis and most importantly it has to be functional.’ ... He took it to heart and he actually got involved in it. I was very surprised, the shoe looks very nice” (“U.S. Open,” ESPN, 8/26).
