Roger Federer is a living legend of tennis, but his legacy is overreaching the world of tennis. His name and personal qualities are also in demand in the corporate world. One of his prominent collaborations is with the On shoe company.
Update March 2023: On Shoes made big acquisitions. Iga Swiatek, WTA number 1, will wear On Shoes and also Ben Shelton, ATP number 39, will join the company as the brand ambassador.

On and Roger Federer
On, is the Swiss sneakers company established in 2010 with sales of over $200 000 000. Its products are very popular among runners thanks to the Cloud rubber soles.
Roger Federer made an undisclosed investment into the company that was announced in November 2019. It was also revealed that he will participate in designing his own sneakers line. And now we see the results of his work.
Roger Federer is going on the same road as all basketball stars starting with Michael Jordan. Establishing its own sneakers line and earning royalties from its success. Roger Federer is probably the first tennis player who is not just renting his name but also actively working on sneakers.

THE ROGER Collection
At the moment, the Roger Collection consists of four models: THE ROGER Centre Court, THE ROGER Clubhouse, THE ROGER Advantage, and THE Roger Pro Clay, the latest addition to the collection. All models are extremely light, using Vegan leather, mesh sock liners, and standard lacing. The Roger collection is available in men’s and women’s versions.
THE ROGER Centre Court
THE ROGER Centre Court is the flagship of Federer’s collection.
The neat design references the old tennis days when white dresses and shoes were a must. The modern technologies (Speedboard and Cloudtec) embedded in these shoes are a must today. Overall, you get all-day comfort and stylish retro design at its best.
THE ROGER Clubhouse
The Clubhouse line is the boldest one. Shoes are available in many different colours but I still see the retro aspect in them. They again use all the smart technologies for all-day comfort. The thing runners appreciate most in the On running shoes transformed into casual shoes too.
THE ROGER Advantage
The Advantage line is supplementary to the models above for me. It goes back to a minimalistic white design and provides everyday comfort.
THE ROGER Pro Clay
The Roger Pro Clay tennis shoes are the latest addition to the Federer collection. The clay in the name refers clearly to the surface they should be used on. They weigh just 405 grams, the outsole gives you a firm feeling and stability on clay courts.
They are available in women’s (white/savannah colour) and men’s (white/flame colour) versions.
