    Rafa is training with these awsome shoes. They remember me to the Breathe Free III.

    They probably remind you of the Breathe Free III because of the tongue. I am current wearing my older pair of Breathe Free III while my Cage II's are away at Nike. They do look similar to what Nadal is sporting, but I wonder how much of it is due to the tongue, not just the look of the shoe, since the CBs 1.3 and 2.3 do not seem to have a tongue, but rather the boot.

    Cheers!

    I never was a fan of rafa's shoes. I'd rather prefer the vapors than the breath cages, the breathe frees an the CB's.

    But these look nice!

    The inside looks a kind of the Lacoste repels.

    Well, since Nadal failed in his attempt to start a trend towards capri pants for everyone, maybe he's trying to start a new retro trend to go back to the standard shorts of the 70's-early 90's? :shock:

    Is that the new 2010 Babo PP2's on the fresh air inspector behind Rafa?
    Those CB's look comfy.Are they coming with that beefy tongue or is that an Player exclusive for Nadal?

    No that massive tongue is only for Nadal.. Same deal with his 1.3's, the shoes he wears have a really big tongue like that while the model that is available to the public has the one-piece liner.

    Rafa, IMO, looks not only much better in short shorts than capris, he also looks much better with a backwards cap than a bandana.

    I care man!

    Agreed the all white brings a nice touch,considering the future colors are a little to flashy for my taste.If these come as comfy as they look along with a nice a fat width I'm sold.Looks like a stable shoe to me, in the pic anyways.
    Add that Rafa only Beefy cushioned tounge instead of the uni-tongue and they've built a great shoe.
    Will this all White color scheme be available "or No" {sorry had to!}
