    Twin Stripes on shorts? Ugly!

    Yup - to look beautiful, shorts must have THREE stripes. :)

    One thin stripe will do

    For a 3-striper you sure seem to wind up often in Nike chats with your witticisms and invectives. Hope I got all my grammar, punctuation and spelling correct for you, Herr Professor! Go ahead, crack my knuckles with your blackboard pointer. I need more correction. (Smack) Viele danke, can I have some more?

    Ha ha.. I bought a black pair of those shorts the other day. I don't think they're part of the tennis range, they're just training shorts. Those stripes are strips of material where they're bonded/glued (no stitching).

    It appears these shoes were wrought by the fingertips of God.

    Roger's delicate talons and those of the Golden Eagle GOAT skim the clay's surface snatching up the fallen souls of the forgotten and unseeded. Pure class Rogi with heavy duty GOAT training swooshy kicks master best class pure sexi love.

    Looks like they took the pants that prisoners wear and made shorts out of them.

    2012 Vapors I think. Horrible boring colourway. Fed better not be wearing Red again at the Australian Open.

    Babolast... that's actually his running shoe/trainer in front. It's obscuring the tennis shoes.

    They look like a combination of the Vapor V and Vapor VI. Or maybe it's just my fuzzy eyes

    Looks like he put that running/training shoe in front on purpose... Looks to me those are the next vapors! :) If not he wouldn't hide it! Nike must've warned him lol

    Strange that gave Roger painted Nike shoes (prototype) two years ago when they tested the LL were all white.

    I appreciate the offer rjg007, but as t21d pointed out, they can be shipped here to the us. It just annoys me that Nike doesn't sell them stateside. I expect that Adidas has cool colorways not released here, after all they're a European corporation. I just wish Nike would try a little harder.

    Yes, and the overall form of the soles also come back with a V6

    Unless that's just for him and we will be getting the Lunarlon form factor! Definitely hope not!

    Why? Yet in this first photo on this page is not just an ordinary hybrid satellite training trainers.

    @aenri86 - Rather, it will not be Lunarlon, but something like the soles of the V6.

    No.. the first photo on this page is misleading. He's not wearing the shoe you can see in the foreground. That trainer/runner and the racquet are obscuring the tennis shoes he is wearing (probably by no mistake either - someone probably asked them not to take a close pic of his demo shoes).

    Yes, yes, yes.
    V6 was probably the greatest shoe I ever played in. So much support, the comfort was amazing (for me), and the arches fit perfect.
    And Fed was wearing V6 that looked like LL Vapors last year. And from Fabfed's pictures (if you haven't seen it yet, check em out guys!), his current V8 is still a V6 that's disguised as the V8. Which can lead to this new Vapor 9, which will be the next GSOAT!

    It truly was amazing, Especially the Fit frame in the heel of the shoe! I <3 the high of the ground look in the heel instead of this low to the ground Lunar'Marshmellow'Lite stuff.

    If this is a test of new Vapor's it certainly will be on sale, but it is known that the commercial version will differ from his.
