Apparently they are 1 of 10 pairs in the UK, and from an incredibly limited run, made exclusively for Federer and his friends. They are the left overs from this stock and were given to this shop owner as a gift by Nike.
To put this into perspective, the Rafa cotton candy/bubblegum limited edition ballistecs were available for purchase by all retailers and number about 2500 (i think)- these were not available for retailers to buy.
I am aware that they are similar to the proposed Masters cup version, and was initially dubious of buying them because of this, but these are not that version- the colours differ slightly and they have the 'all-important' RF logo (and the fact the masters cup ones aren't out yet!)
So, here they are, if anyone has any questions or want more pictures, please go for it. I'm currently torn between wearing them and throwing them on the bay...it might hurt to do so though, but student debt isn't fun! Moral dilemma, no?

Nice look different, never seen a colorway close to them before. I would imagine they could fetch a pretty penny on the bay, especially after Sunday. I initially thought it was a Nike iD shoe, kinda reminded me of the Kobe IV.

Very, very similar to the ones Federer wore in IW.

TMCW140, may i ask how much your intending to sale these very nice shoes on the bay for. :D

Nice. Been waiting for the pics since you posted in the apparel thread. **** could get you a lot of dosh for those!

Oh, now I see why you were saying "the bay". Only joined a month ago and didn't realise they were that strict.

Hmm...not sure about the '1 of 10 pairs in the UK' and 'made for his friends' sales patter you got on these... They stock them at a certain racketsport specialists in SW19...

They look good though - was tempted myself... But managed to resist!

:)

TMCW140
07-05-2009, 04:37 PM
that was were they came from- i accept it was probably slightly elaborated, but the basic limited edition-ness fits in, so i'm happy.

how exactly are those different from the masters ones coming out later this year? sweet shoes in any event.

johnathan smith
07-06-2009, 03:29 PM
BDAZ,
I think the difference is that these are white, while ones coming out in OCt. look kind of grey/silver.
I could be and hope I am wrong.
I like the white ones that are in this thread.

TMCW140
07-06-2009, 04:15 PM
Cheers.
I think the Master's ones are a kind of v.dark grey rather than solid black and don't think they'll have the RF.
Still so torn on what to do with them! :-(

This isn't a firm decision on selling them, just more of an opening it up to potentially considering it! :)

Al Czervik
07-07-2009, 05:24 AM

Actually cushioning is the upside, especially in the forefoot. Main downside is that flywire is like plastic and it takes a month to break them in, at least the black ones.

Takes 3 or 4 wears to break in the V6s. Excellent shoes that hold up pretty well. I've had mine for 6 months and am due for another pair, but they have lasted better than any others I've had.

I could be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised to see these pop up on nike's website next month. If you remember, there were limited Federer and Nadal shoes last year right before the US Open that were around $150.

But jokes aside, I got the shoes from the same shop outside Wimbledon and was also told it's a limited edition Vapor VI then, kinda regretted it as i paid about 100 pounds (around US$165), so a good $50 more than what it will go for when it is released in Sep/Oct, but its a cool colourway...and I hope Roger beats Novak today wearing it :)

Thanks!

Below is a good shot of the shoes with the glass blue flywire on Roger.

That blue in the shoe looks nice. Too bad Nike sucks and doesn't release these.

Apparently they are 1 of 10 pairs in the UK, and from an incredibly limited run, made exclusively for Federer and his friends. They are the left overs from this stock and were given to this shop owner as a gift by Nike.
To put this into perspective, the Rafa cotton candy/bubblegum limited edition ballistecs were available for purchase by all retailers and number about 2500 (i think)- these were not available for retailers to buy.
I am aware that they are similar to the proposed Masters cup version, and was initially dubious of buying them because of this, but these are not that version- the colours differ slightly and they have the 'all-important' RF logo (and the fact the masters cup ones aren't out yet!)
So, here they are, if anyone has any questions or want more pictures, please go for it. I'm currently torn between wearing them and throwing them on the bay...it might hurt to do so though, but student debt isn't fun! Moral dilemma, no?
Im liking the blue fly wire more personaly the black is just pop out too much, the blue is fresh but settle

What's stupid about the RF logo? Federer is THE main player endorsing the vapor VI, he is a 15-time slam winner and to most people the GOAT. That the RF logo is on the shoes is a treat to all his fans. If you don't like it, just don't buy it, don't diss it, you cretinous philistine

dude, relax. I'm a huge federer fan myself, he's the man, the hero, the living legend! but since unfortunately I'm not roger federer, personally I wouldnt wear his signature stuff. I wouldnt wear anybody's signature stuff really, unless it was my own! i understand I'm the exception here, because probably lots of people would just buy these vapors for the RF logo, but I dont get the policy nike is adopting: I mean, federer and nadal are using stuff that's completely different from the one available to the public (i.e. all rogers shirts have his logo, their wristbands and bandanas are completely different colors than the one that nike is selling as their "signature" stuff, and most vapors came RF free so far...)

anyways, i didnt mean to offend anybody by *****ing about the logo.

btw, have they fixed the red dot thing?? I remember posts saying that the problem was fixed after the 2 models released in january, but i my white/sky blue version has red dots all over it, and that came out in april. can anybody report on red dots on the white/sky blue, wimby and us open models??

Appreciate your clarification Edo, sorry if I jumped in too quickly.

As far as I know, the red dot problem is fixed. I have every pair of vapor 6 since the first white/charcoal/silver one which had the red dot problem, and all of them are fine so far, including the white/sterling blue FO version you are talking about. The Wimbledon version is fine too. Not sure though if anyone else might have the same problem as you, haven't come across anyone mentioning it though.

yeah, it's the white/sterling blue FO version that I got and it's totally "red dotted".... besides the fact that i recently broke one shoe!! I called nike customer service in italy, and they said they'd replace it with a new pair if I only had kept the sale receipt.... but I doubt they could replace it with the same model, as it's sold out at nike.com... i even got the wimbledon version, but I dont use them on court cos I think they kick too much arse to be ruined on a clay court! so I just save them for hard court games, which around here happen about 3 times a year! I just ordered the white/black version though, despite the stupid RF logo!! :):):)

The shoes are brilliant, they have style and class but... the RF logo should be for Roger Federer himself but at least it is the initials and not the whole name...
