Wimbledon frowns on Federer's shoes

Wimbledon reportedly asked Roger Federer to change his orange-soled shoes after his first-round match Monday.

Apparently, what you see above is too colorful for Wimbledon.

According to multiple reports, Roger Federer — who probably should have a little clout at the All England Club after winning the title seven times — was asked to change his orange-soled shoes after his first-round match against Victor Hanescu.

Wimbledon is infamous for its strict dress code, calling for predominantly white clothing. Players often test the limits of what is acceptable in the fashion-conscious sport.

Federer obliged. He came out Wednesday for his second-round match in more traditional white-soled shoes:

The new shoes didn't do him any favors though. He was ousted in an absolute stunner in the second-round by Sergiy Stakhovsky.

The orange shoes above matched his overall attire, twinged in orange throughout:
