Have your kids ever wanted to be like Roger Federer? Well, you can pick up those young tennis stars a pair of Nike's new Roger Federer shoe called Nike Zoom Vapor RF.

For those of you sneaker heads out there wanting to be like Roger Federer, Nike has decided to release a special limited-edition pair of those shoes that will celebrate Roger passing tennis legend Pete Sampras for the most times ranked as the world's number one men's player.

We'll let the folks over at the Examiner explain the rest:
To celebrate the occasion, Nike has put together a special colorway of Federer's signature shoe, the Nike Zoom Vapor RF - which is a re-skinned Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour - that will be limited to only 287 pairs. The black upper will be complimented by gold accents all throughout the shoe and will come with a special box and certificate of authenticity that is signed by Federer himself. Each serial number commemorates a week of Federer's reign and it looks like each shoe will come with a little news blip about that particular week.
