Roger Federer Busted By Wimbledon Fashion Police For Wearing Shoes With Orange Soles

Roger Federer has been told by Wimbledon officials that the shoes he wore during the first round of this year’s tournament violated the tournament’s dress code and that he will not be permitted to wear them again according to Mike Dickson of The Daily Mail.

Wimbledon mandates that players wear all-white with only small exceptions accepted. The orange soles of Federer’s Nike shoes (seen above) were deemed to be in violation of this code.
