Anyone has any ideas as to why Venus was wearing Nike shoes during today's match? Is this the opening gambit in her "defection" to Nike, or did she simply lost her luggage with her "Eleven" shoes and had to borrow a pair from Serena?

Thoughts?

because she doesn't trust in her own shoes anymore and she wants to ruin her knee. (changing shoes can cause major problems for your knees, most people don't know about that!)

Yes, Venus is "defecting" from her own clothing line. :cuckoo:

She's been wearing Nike Breathe Free IIs since the US Open. Where have you been?

Apparently, I've not been paying attention. But why would she undermine the integrety of her own product by endorsing the competition?

Well, I doubt most people would even notice the swoosh. :shrug: I watched some of her match, and I didn't notice, mainly because there's about a hundred other things I think to observe before I'll look at a player's shoes.
People are going to notice the clothes that she is wearing and the EleVen logo on that or the one on her headband/visor before they notice what she's got on her feet. Doubt it'd do that much damage really.

I was being more than a little facetious, Calabar. The truth is, EleVen has been all but dead since the last Steve & Barrys stores closed January 15. She can't play barefoot, so she's been getting free shoes from her sister.

It's the same as Lacoste (and Fila?) players using other brands of shoes.
