Tennis legend Roger Federer is bringing a new Jordan-like look to the tennis court for the 2014 U.S. Open.

In his first-round match against Marinko Matosevic, Federer unveiled the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3, a shoe sneakerheads will recognize as bearing a distinct resemblance to the Air Jordan III and the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5.
