• Special Federer shoes find their way to eBay

    Special Federer shoes find their way to eBay A limited edition of commemorative Roger Federer shoes has sparked a stampede to the eBay auction site.

    The move is a carefully orchestrated campaign by clothing company Nike to celebrate their top tennis client's rise back to world No. 1 status.

    In addition to tributes to the Swiss after he won his seventh Wimbledon crown (17th Grand Slam title) and his 287th week at the top of the ATP rankings to beat the record of Pete Sampras, the Oregon multinational also issued a special pair of shoes - complete with a clever marketing twist.

    The Zoom Vapor Roger Federer 287s cost an eye-watering $287 - with only 287 pairs put onto the market. Of course, the supply was quickly snapped up, with some of it headed straight for eBay.

    The pricey, numbered runners are numbered and shipped in a custom box; they also contain a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Federer. On the auction site, their prices are running the the $2,000-3,000 range, meaning only serious collectors or mad Federer fans need apply.
