    Assuming you mean propulse. There is a stars and stripes version for the olympics. They will hit the market July 4 and will be sold in very limited quantities.

    You may be right, I have trouble telling the difference.

    I wasn't too crazy about them, but it's a patriotic thing I guess. Maybe if I see someone on TV wearing them I'd like them better. :)

    Same here, I can't see myself wearing them either but it would look a lot better on someone playing for the USA in the Olympics.

    There is a photo on a little sign on the counter at my club offering them for pre-order. I haven't seen a photo anywhere else. I'm looking though.

    I can't find anything on Google images. :( I'll definitely get a pair of these if they offer them at TW.

    Loved these shoes, but they were just a little too wide for my feet (forefoot particularly). Great shoes if they fit your foot.

    I'm willing to bet, if Nadal or Fed wears them, you people will jump on it like crazy!!!
