Saw the catalog. Took a quick shot of the Vapor VI. Sadly the copy I saw, this page was in black and white. In the description it mentioned this will be Federer's shoe. As you can see its got some cool Flywire and I forget, but it might have Lunarlite foam in the forefoot. I know in the catalog there was another high end tennis shoe that retailed for 120, and that had Lunar foam in the forefoot and it also came in like a black/yellowish colorway.

Vapor IV description and in black. The images are monochromatic, so its not exactly the best representation.

Nice find!!!

On Tilt EX
06-25-2008, 06:19 PM
The Cage is going away and being replaced by if I remember correctly the ballastic or something like that. Still going to have the "uni-tongue" design, but a more "skater" looking shoe from the pics I have seen. Doesn't look bad, just different. I like the pictures of the new vapors more.

Hope that helps some

staedtler
06-25-2008, 06:35 PM
On Tilt EX is correct. From what I remember the other high end Nike tennis shoe is a little skater like. Definitely not Breathe Cage looking. The colorway I saw of it was kind of wonky. From what I remember in terms of cushioning tech, it had Max Air in the heel and Lunar foam in the forefoot. Also there were 2 takedown versions of this shoe too. So theres like the 120 dollar version with all the good technology. Then like an 85 dollar takedown version, and then even a cheaper version which was I think around 70. They all looked pretty similar too.

Hey staedtler my man, what are the colourways of the new Vapours?

staedtler
06-26-2008, 05:06 PM
White/Metallic Silver - Charcoal
Black/Metallic Silver -Charcoal

The description is on the first page with the images. Those were the only 2 colorways in the catalog.

SempreSami
06-26-2008, 05:20 PM
MORE black Vapours? It's like Nike are listening to what people want now.

kfactor/all/the/WAY!
06-26-2008, 09:31 PM
one thing of the vapor VI is that the heel could be better. i makes it look a bit less of a tennis shoe. i havent seen a tennis shoe with that.

NIke air max are ugly also

KFwinds
06-26-2008, 09:47 PM
Wow - I hope the Breathes are around for a while, 'cause those new Rafa shoes look bad!!!

The Vapors look ok, but maybe too similar to the IV's. I hope the new technology lives up to the hype...

So far, I like the Vapor V the best; it's more comfortable on me than the other versions.

slashrx5

What baout the durability? I mean if they're that thin that must be bad new for someone like me who always drags the inside of my left foot? My black mesh vapor V's wore out in about a month becasue of that. I think they're really nice though.

The technology of Lunarlite and Flywire is perfect for the shoes but it's looking way too plain. I like the looks of the Vapor V more but I'm sure these shoes will be better in performance. Also, these shoes needs a little bit more color and Federer logos.

09-22-2008, 07:04 AM
Hey Leon505,
You wrote that you had every vapor from 2 to 5. I have a question about the vapor speeds (3). What was the sizing like? I wear 11.5 in the vapor 2 (still have some fresh boxes in the closet... greatest shoe ever), but I vaguely remember the speeds running small. I've never worn a 12 in my life but I think I had to try on a 12.5 in the speeds. Is that about right? Do they run a full size small? One of these days I'd like to run across a pair on the auction site and don't want to get the wrong size. Oddly enough, with the Vs I have to wear an 11. Thanks for any additional info.

-wb

weaselberry
09-22-2008, 07:12 AM

On the Tennis Warehouse website, they have an interview with Alex Chan, Nike's shoe product line manager. In the interview they talk about the flywire technology (the lines on the picture of the shoe) which is based on suspension bridges. In the video HE SHOWS THE NEW NIKE VAPOR VI in both black and white. Here is the link:

The picture came from the NikeTeam website ... I was looking for Spring SPAR training clothing. If you look the the Court catalog, the footwear is towards the bottom.

What voucher? From your warranty claims? I thought they can only go to the same exact model of shoes.

A voucher is just a set amount of money (for ex 1$-200$) from nike that you can use on anything on nike.com.

Hence, you get a shoe of equal or lesser value (the voucher).
