    Hey, my friend just got some Ballistecs from his uncle and in a interesting colorway too. Apparently customized. Looks quite nice to me. Comments?

    Ask your uncle where he got these customized Balistecs.... this could be BIG news if Nike started to sell custom tennis shoes.

    digging the black and lavender, but that weird brownish red kinda kills it. i think ballistecs would better off with some colorways that only have 2 colors, or primarily 2 colors. (like black/silver/neon green for BVs)

    The swoosh and the Air max unit are blurry.

    It's fake.

    Could make them look normal for sure if I wanted to. Obviously just left the black alone.

    Stupid friend....

    Guess you guys are right, guess my friend pulled a fast one on me. He lives overseas so I had no way to confirm. But I'm gonna visit him soon and when I do, he's gonna get it.... Sorry guys for this thread but it never occured to me. I guess I can say that jus enjoy the colorway that never was? Sorry once again :)

    Regardless of whether they ARE Rafa's day Australian Open ballistecs that NEVER got released, how did he get his hands on them???

    If they really are Rafa's day AO ballistecs, that would be a hell of a find.

    Can your friend give us more info?
