    Watching the Nadal vs. Federer semifinal match at sony ericson tournament in Miami and it appears that Federer is wearing older version vapors, you know, the ones' that actually look good and like tennis shoes rather than basketball sneaker; matter of opinion i guess. Anyone else see this or am I wrong?

    Sensing that sponsors are starting to look the other way, so he's using the old stock he keeps in the garage ;)

    That is really odd. Nike has been a little out of sorts so far this year. Fed not happy (I assume) with his PJed hybrid-like Vapor 6/8ths during this tournament. Nadal not happy with the size, fit, and stick to his skin nature of his Australian Open top, thus having to wear a much larger than normal shirt. Just seems unusual for a company that is usually on top of their game!

    Cheers!

    Wouldnt be the first time he's done this. He wore the Vapor Speed for 2 years and never wore the V3's. Just his preference I guess. Like Mel Brooks says, "It's good to be the king." :D

    Are you guys stupid?

    It was all planned.

    Yesterday was a demonstration of how bad your footwork is if you don't have lunarlite.

    I expect the V8 sales to skyrocket after this...

    weirdly he started off with V8 hybrids. Then he suddenly switched...Did he actually bring those V6 with him? Kinda silly isn't it

    The same has changed during the AO 2010 Vapory 6th shoes Maybe because at the beginning of year people are more interested in the new shoes of God, or Nike is not yet prepared a year ago custom V7 so they knew that turns them into sixth Vapory
