breath free 2, breath cage, and cage 2 all feel abit wider than the ballistec 1.3 to me.

so im hoping the 2.3 will be a touch wider.

my feet fit snugly in the 1.3, but are very comfortable in the breathe series.

Well, they are similar, but I doubt they had that in mind. They just changed the 1.3 a little bit by taking some material off the "stripes."

The ballistecs look like a combo between the current 1.3's and vapor V's. the new vapors are um...interesting

I could use these on clay, my problem is that I play almost only in clay and shoes end pretty dirty after the 2nd match. These one seems a good solution.

Atrowurst
06-08-2009, 11:34 PM
Well, I for myself really dig the design.
I'd buy most of those in a heartbeat.

Too bad I just got my 1.3 clay (which do look ugly as hell in my opinion)
Though if they come a little wider than the 1.3 I might consider a switch, since the 1.3 are almsot too snug (and 1/2 size larger is too long)

I like the vapors too. I like the VI a lot, and despite I have 2 CB 1.3 and they are very confortable, I purchased a pair of vapor vi and I love them. I find the CB very bulky.

I use the vapors less than I would because I only play in clay and it's very sad to see these nice shoes go dirty.

And these VII are very nice too. I will probably buy both of them when they're out next year.

TMCW140
06-09-2009, 08:47 AM

First of all thanks for the pics.

The white orange will be Rafas day shoe and the darker one will be his night shoe.

Another thing, looks like Fed will be in blue again. He wears blue every season. Also whats up withg the black red V7īs? They look pretty much like the Fall 09 V6īs.

Once again thank you for the pics. Do you have any pics of the clothing?

Please tell me that's BLACK not BROWN :?

Yeah... it's brown. So Rafa can look just like Charlie Brown at the AO.

Also, I get the feeling these shoes aren't as chunky as the pictures make them out to be, since it's only from this side angle. I got that feeling with the 1.3s too. They were actually quite a narrow fit. hopefully these will turn out to be less DC-like than they seem in the pictures.

Terr
08-03-2009, 06:28 AM
What's with the retro Air Tech 'M'? What does the 'M' even stand for?

I feel like Nike should have brought out an update on the Air Techs since they seem to feel that retro is so 'in' right now and left the 1.3s alone or brought in some new colourways.

Sure I wouldn't wear Air Techs for tennis, but I'd have no problem wearing them around the city. :D

So which of those Ballistecs are going to be available in January (is that when)?

There were 3 pictures. So which one's will Nadal be wearing for the AO?

I ask because I'm new to tennis and I'm currently lookign for some shoes. I really like those black 2.3s so I don't want to get something too similar now and want those in 4 months time.

08-11-2009, 02:56 AM

That's too bad, because I like the Black ones the best, I was hoping those would be out first.

I'm having a hard time finding nice looking tennis shoes. Personally, I think tennis shoes are kind of ugly. Just like new basketball shoes, can't get in to them. I wish they would have some of the classic styles that have been made in to "street" shoes but updated with new materials and support so you could actually play in them.

I personally think the black CB's are bit plain. The Brown ones would be nice if it wasn't for that awful red ziz zag stripe.
