Roger Federer ‘super excited’ as he launches his signature shoe to the masses
Roger Federer’s signature shoe is now available for purchase by the general public after more than a year of product attention and a limited release in 2021.
Ahead of his return to the tour in March 2021, the 20-time Slam champion was spotted working out in an as-yet-unreleased pair of tennis shoes, ditching his preferred choice of Nike shoes up until that point.
Upon his return to competition at the 2021 Qatar Open, Federer unveiled the On Roger Pro, a one-of-a-kind custom shoe developed with Swiss running brand On, their first foray into performance tennis footwear.
After much anticipation from fans of the Swiss great, the shoe has been released in limited quantities and sizes for a lucky few to try.
Now even more public consumers can try On Roger Pro.
Federer tweeted from his personal account: “Super excited to hit the market in bigger numbers with the Roger Pro.
“We spent a lot of time perfecting it.”

Federer has worn the shoes in all 13 professional matches he has played in 2021, including all five matches he has played in his run to the Wimbledon quarter-finals.
Now 40 and away from competition since Wimbledon in July, fans are hoping to see the former world number one wearing his signature shoe again in top-level competition in the not-too-distant future.
