A lot of us have noticed that Venus has been wearing Nike shoes since the US Open. Now the Nike Breathe 2K10 is listed as her official shoe. Did she sign a secret deal? Any have any details?

Venus has always been playing with Nike shoes, just at selected events (wimbledon sometimes, rg sometimes) etc...

I guess she uses Nike for court where her feet need extra comfort and protection, cause I doubt a $15-$50 eleven shoe is healthy.

If she is using Nike shoes for Wimbledon/RG then obv.ly cause she needs a different kind of shoe for these surfaces. Esp.ly Wimbledon. The sole of the shoe differs depending on which surface you play on.

And empress = JJ.

It is quite possible, she and Nike worked out a shoes deal. I know Venus enjoys doing her own dresses but there isn't much you can do with sneakers anyway so why not.

Seriously, I thought this was about Jeja's shoes. Isn't Venus the queen? I know "The Empress" is better but that title's already taken. Sorry. :lol:

Also, if this was actually about Empress' shoes then I'd understand why it was posted in GM, but the queen's shoes should be discussed in her own forum.

I've never heard anyone call Jelena Empress before? :shrug: Who does apart from her fans...I mean what is she Empress of? The Empire of Pushers?

Venus and Serena are both tennis-goddesses, but the greater can include the lesser so I think Venus could be referred to as Empress or Queen really - no matter who else has a title :lol:

The Goddess is The Empress' BFF and although The Queen is Goddess' sister the titles have been decided so there.

Goddess > Empress > Queen.

I introduced Empress Jankovic to this forum a month ago because that's Jelena's title among Serbian fans that they use at Serbian forums and websites - it is also an established title. And yes, same as with Queen Vee, some people use it mockingly:

"The Empress" has risen from her deathbed to give her last atom of strength for her team.

We know she's the queen, we just didn't know she wanted to be an empress as well. :rolleyes:

Jelena is The Empress of Cool. Serbian words "Tsar" and "Tsaritsa" are often used as colloquialisms - people that are extremely cool. The manner in which Jelena won Wimbledon mixed doubles title is more cool that all Venus' singles titles at SW19 combined. ;)

:lol: but see the thing is that these titles usually suit the players personality. Nothing about JJ says "I rule an empire."" whereas Venus has always been described as having royal, stately, majestic qualities especially at Wimbledon. Jj OTOH is more suited to Diva, Drama Queen, Wicked Witch (in a good way) etc. ;)

It is quite common for tennis players just to have shoe contracts with certain companies. Tennis shoes are expensive, so it's worth it getting a player to wear them. Besides in terms of you know how it affects your game tennis shoes are so much more critical than clothes, so having them worn by top 10 players even though they don't wear the clothes is some sort of sign of "respect" that it's great quality. (Examples: Nole with ST, but adidas shoes. Murray used to get $$$ for his adidas shoes while wearing Fred Perry. Several Lacoste players opting for ASICS shoes. Some players with Nike or Adidas clothes wearing Babolat shoes when they play with their Babolat rackets, because they prefer them etc. etc. etc.)

1. Sergio Tacchini and Fred Perry don't do shoes, and since Lacoste didn't do shoes until last year, Lacoste-sponsored players didn't have a choice.

2. Please name one Nike-sponsored or Adidas-sponsored player, male or female, that does not wear corresponding shoes. Not a player who wears Nike or Adidas clothes, mind you, but a player who is actually under contract with Nike or Adidas.

I guess your problem is that they get to "profit from Venus for a cheap shoe contract" and that's why you don't want to believe there is a contract.
It's the same thing with strings at times. The Bryans even used to wear Tecnifibre patches, because they were getting strings from them.

:rolleyes: this thread is about Empress and her new shoes, not some Technifibre patches :o

Empress just comes naturally to Vee.

Queen Vee showed us her new shoes at the Sony Ericsson Awards.

2. Please name one Nike-sponsored or Adidas-sponsored player, male or female, that does not wear corresponding shoes. Not a player who wears Nike or Adidas clothes, mind you, but a player who is actually under contract with Nike or Adidas.

Djokovic wore Nike shoes at 2008 Wimbledon ;) But just for that event because he was more comfortable in those shoes on the grass.

Yeah well :lol: He was sliding all over the place because the sole of his shoes didn't suit grasscourts all too well and then well his footwork doesn't suit grasscourts at all anyway :lol:

Official shoe, eh? Someone forgot to tell them:

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/player/venus-williams_2257889_9027
http://www.venuswilliams.com/sponsors.php

Nike would not, WOULD NOT, sign an athlete of Venus Williams' caliber and just have her wear their shoes. She's wearing them because the EleVen shoes were a bit delicate (although they were so trendy and elegant I found, when worn with my cream blouse and floral skirt), and her sister can get her all the free shoes she wants.

A lot of us have noticed that Venus has been wearing Nike shoes since the US Open. Now the Nike Breathe 2K10 is listed as her official shoe. Did she sign a secret deal? Any have any details?

I thought 'listed as her official shoe' meant she'd filled out a form or something for the wta site. I didn't realise it meant official listed on tennis warehouse.

It definitely seems now as though Venus just happens to be wearing the shoes, no contractual agreements involved.

Venus, Lena and Serena were giving it in this pic :lol::lol:
Ivanovic was trying.

:lol: I remember the shoot. It was funny because I think initally it was just the sisters serving the photographer and then in one shot it looked like Elena was observing what Serena was doing and then - that shot was next. Elena gave fierce.

Richard Branson looks like he's trying to own it too :tape:

This is outrageous! :speakles:

First a Venus fan opens a thread that has no business being in GM in the first place. While doing this they try to steal one of Empress Lady Diva Drama Queen Ms Jelena Jankovic's rightful titles. :lol:

Naturally, Jankobitches assume this is a Jeja thread, come in in great numbers only to be shocked with the content. All this time Veelievers mostly stay away from the thread as they have no idea it's about their Queen either, while few of them try to defend their right to call Queen an Empress. And now you accuse us of being desperate? :lol:

:o I don't care much for this empress stuff but... shouldn't an empress have some sort of recognised empire? Venus kind of has... you know, SW19... Jelena's is... um... ?

Also, Empress Lady Diva Drama Queen Ms Jelena Jankovic's sounds like a drag act. Now while Jelena does resemble Renee Richards...

got a question, how long does it take to break in new shoes?

I got a pair of new nike courtballsstec 4.3, for the width they fit comfortably but pretty tight. Played tennis for 3 hours with them today and it was a big relief for like 5 min after I took them off. Didn't really feel that bad during the 3 hours. and that night the feet was ok no blisters or discomfort.....should I return them and get half size bigger? usually how long does it take to break in shoes?
