    Has anyone seen these?! Black and white Vapor's look fresh as hell. I searched Getty but there were no pictures worth posting, if anyone has a picture from an alternate source, post it here.

    Also does anyone know if these will be a special item? Like Federer's shoes being sold at the US Open? Can you get them at the tournament?

    I've seen them, I to think that look awesome. I belive they are the Vapor VI. Not sure, but there was a thread showing new pics of the VI and it looks awfully similar...

    am i the only one that thinks they look kinda ugly? i prefer the white vapor 5's or the matte black ones because they're just too shiny and look like pennie loafers, :p

    Any word on whether these uber cool vapors will be released ??....these are the sickest looking shoes since the vapors that Fed wore in the 2005 Aus Open and 2005 US open.

    Those pair of Vapor V are nice. Love the white color on the fit frame.

    He should just wear all grey, seeing as he's just dull dull dull.

    I got the black Vapor Vs along with Roger's shirt from Madrid/Basel through a friend. The black Vapor V is supposed to be Roger's actual shoes, its a size 12, and the label on the inside of the tongue is different from the retail versions and also has a date (presumably when the shoes were supposed to used) - all his shoes are also made in Korea, not China like the retail versions . Don't think this color scheme will be released for sale, in any case Nike will be releasing the Vapor VIs next month for the Aussie Open so I don't think they will be going back to the Vs. Roger's shoes are interesting as they do not have insoles (like the retails ones), the inside of the shoes is just plain white. I thought they had taken out the insoles when I got the black Vapor V, but then I realised it was the same for all his shoes (see the photos of his Wimby Vapor V I took at the Wimby museum and also his US Open Vapor V) - I think Roger wears 2 pairs of socks..or at least I think he does from some photos I have seen..

    They are definitely the Vapor Vs, but Federer probably wears the Vapor VIs already... He has to be ready for the Australian Open

    Like most pro's, I'm sure Roger has custom made orthotics placed inside his shoes. He just removed them before giving them up...

    I think because it has the grass court tread, the wimbledon ones are flatter, with no arch....maybe it has someting to do with the tread mold, and applying it to the Vapor V's
