    Hi,

    What shoes is Roger going to use at Wimbledon this year?

    Excuse me if this has been asked before but I used search and could not find any information on that.

    No, you idiot. If it was real gold, the shoes would cost thousands.

    Interesting that Federer's the one wearing gold this year being the defending champion and all. (sigh)

    Sorry. Sarcasm is hard to convey whilst typing. I was just saying that the defending champion should be wearing gold.

    i read a lot of reviews where people complained about those red spots that appear on the vapor VIs, wonder why that happens?

    Something about the chemicals in the shoe make that red dye in the shoes, it's too bad because I'd like those white and gold wimbledon shoes, I own the black VI's and they are obviously fine.

    It was mould growing in them, but it only happened on early versions of the White/Silver AO versions, so the Gold ones will be safe!

    He's not going to wear shoes.

    He's going to specifically try to suck for lols.

    5 Vs 1 guys, he deserves to wear the gold. If they feel that should put gold on Rafa's shoe, then so be it. They both have earned that right.

    That's actually a great idea - since Roger likes his purse & all - maybe he should try what sharapova would be wearing - something like "I'm so pretty or something" - since he is No "I'm so good , I wear gold " anymore.

    It's the flywire in them. I saw some kid at my local Sports Authority return a basketball shoe with flywire on it that had the same red dots on them as the Vapors. Nike should be fixing it soon.

    Are you talking about the first bunch Vapor VIs? The the one with "RF" on the back? I have one, still haven't got around to wear them yet. Will the mould develop if I keep them in the box for a few more month?

    Yeah, but they only seem to develop it after being worn a fair bit-must be the sweat and heat, so should be fine if you just have them in a box.
    In ref to the other quote, its only affected the white/silver with the RF logo. No ones reported it with the black or blue versions

    Thanks for the reply. I have the blue ones also. :p I'm going to keep a pair for collection (well until I need to wear them) and use the other pair pretty soon. Which pair should I wear first? The white one with the RF logo is't a limited thing or are they bringing out more in the future?

    More versions should come with the RF on. Not too sure about the Gold, but think the black/red version for the US should have it. If you used the silver but they went spotty, you could always return them, so maybe them first, just in case!

    Another question I have is, are all first gen(white/grey, RF logo) vapor 6s guaranteed to have red spots developing after use? Or are they actually some that don't have such problem?

    I don't think it's 100% guaranteed they'll appear. Apparently it's the earlier batches that are prone, so you might be lucky
