    my guess is... it won't be available in public.
    there will be black and white vipor vi on sep or oct. so I don't think nike will release this shoes. I think it's only for fed.

    I was not able to see any reference to the US Open titles as in past year's shoes in the pictures on Getty Images.

    Those shoes are sweet! I like the oreo ones a touch better but these are still nice. Hopefully it'll be release, although if they are I'm not sure if I want these or the oreos

    What's up with the courts?

    It is called versacourt. For example, it works perfectly in a demonstration/exhibition of this nature. It was marketed originally as a solution to go over courts with chronic cracking issues. Another application is quicker play after rain.

    Great news about the Star 4. I expect (know there will be) a full report with pictures! BHBH and I have tickets for the 2nd weekend Friday - Sunday. Let me know your size and I will gladly pick up a pair for you. I wonder if they will be available on line where the limited edition shoes for Nadal and Federer were last year.

    those shoes really need the fed black and red polos to bring them out, otherwise theyre not too far above average. good combination.

    The bad thing with this surface it is very slick when it is humid. The idea has not really gained wide acceptance. Works great for a make shift court though.
