Ok come on, nike is being stupid. they should bring products that are only being sold outside of the United States to the US. Stuff like the blue and white nike air zoom vapor speed shoes (australian open 2005) or the like 10000000 different blue bandanas federer and nadal have worn over the course of just this year. Its getting ridiculous! Like feliciano lopez was wearing a redish yellowish looking bandana during davis cup in the doubles match vs. the bryans. I mean why doesn't nike just distribute all of their products to all of the countries around the world that they have markets in. I mean i could see like if they can't send every color bandana to lets say (no offense...) sweden. But i mean neglecting the country with the highest GDP and largest economy in the world? come on...!

those bandanas that lopez wore were specifically made for his davis cup matches

Nike is creating demand/desire by only selling certain items to certain countries, not to mention creating an idea of exclusivity.

for some reason nike doesnt think the color will sell in US...if they could make a profit by selling in the US then they would. for some reason their research tells them americans wont like that color so they dont sell it....just cause a few(lets say even a few dozen) people on this message board want some colors i dont think they are eager to spend distribution dollars to the US...that being said, i loved the AO vapors and the oscillates and wished they would come to the US :-\

what they should do is offer everything in catalogs and if u want it, just order it

They did make those Blue vapors in the US, I bought a pair over the phone from a Nike outlet store, and I think they had another 10 pairs in my size, but this was over a year ago so they are surely sold out by now. They are style code: 310372, color code 441. They are definitely sweet, but don't worry about it too much, the new Vapor 4 is a better shoe and I am sure they will come out with some awesome colorways for it.

As for the Bandanas, they also make those, but the catch is you have to order 6 of the same color if you want them. I have some extras in white and black so if you are interested you can email me
