Thanks for the pics tennis 334.

I definitely do like his outfit. I'm glad he ditched the blue shirt with lime green under the arms.

Reminds me a bit of Federer's outfit at 2005 IW. The blue Vapor Speed is better looking though ;)

To play so much tennis with such fresh tennis balls that the bottom of your shoes have green fuzz all over them...sheesh. I'm (fuzz) green with envy.

There's fuzz all over the nice grippy courts at IW, so naturally...

What's the purpose of the "dimples"? Nike had the CB's with the "pimples" that I think a lot of people didn't like.

I haven't seen this "dimple/pimple" technology cross over to other sports' shoes (that I can think of). Is it only tennis shoes? Why?

03-15-2010, 04:47 PM
reminds me of the nike breath free 2's, there is probably mesh or some sort of material in the dimples to create more breathablity, something the b v's seemed to lack. i didnt like them when i saw them at first on a different thread, but now that i see them up close they have grown on me, hope they are just as good as the bv's cause those are great shoes

same here :( hopefully they keep the V's on the miadidas atleast. wouldnt mind paying 30 more for a shoe that i think looks better adding onto having my own color way

They better not discontinue them. I love the v's. I get complements all the time on mine too. I don't like the 6's and if they discontinue the V's I will be looking at prince and Nike shoes to replace them.

You can probably recreate the shoes on miAdidas when they are released.

He's been wearing them in most matches since he switched to the brand with the three stripes.

Not true. The BVI presser said that 5,000 will be sold. Looks like only European shops are getting them. I haven't seen any indication from any of the leading US retailers/websites. I pre-ordered a pair from a Euro site, don't feel like waiting until July for the white/black.

Definitely not. What he wore at IW are WAY longer than what he usually wears. Lets see what he does in Miami.

Murray tends to wear "Skins" compression shorts underneath his shorts(prior to signing on to adidas), not sure if he has switched to adidas equivalent

Thats interesting, as Murray was seen to be moving quite poorly and being visibly unhappy with his footwear at IW.

They look long too. He doesn't seem to be wearing them in the practice photo. Why did they seem to stand out so much at IW??? Surely that would have been noticed at other tournaments.

Also, are we certain that he is not wearing b6's in miami?

rovex

He obviously just had a size smaller when you didn't notice them. He ws wearing bv's in practice. And will play soon so we will see if he continues with them.

They will most likely make him a custom pair because i'm pretty sure he's wearing the retail ones since the tongue of the shoes isn't beefed up like on Djokovic's Geniuses. And i think he was expected to wear the new shoes here.

The short tights are meant to be that length, I have a pair and they go down to just above my knee caps.

If compression shorts were to hit about mid thigh, the end of the short would cut off circulation. It has to wrap the whole thigh.

I think the players are switching back and forth between the shoes to use up their last stock of the BV. And also to test which one they actually prefer. I like to think that most players are going to stick with BV. But I know I will be wrong.

Well yeeeeeah, there'd be no point in saying powerweb works the muscle groups if it doesn't cover the whole hamstring.

SplitStepper
03-28-2010, 10:12 AM
Yes.....but I don't think he wears powerweb shorts all the time. I wear boxer briefs and they go to middle thigh. They feel so much more comfortable than others that go to the knee. In ALOT of pictures I can clearly see his lower thigh without the compression shorts. I doubt he is hiking them up on purpose.
