    Did anyone else notice that Federers Vapor IVs at the French are different than the ones he wore at all the other tournaments this year?? the white/blk/silver as well as the white/red/grey pair both looked pretty much just like the retail version. The Blue/Navy/white pair at the french is different. around the heel it has a circle like thing in navy rather than a full strip. it looks more like the vapor 3 heel. I wonder whats up, because its not a custom mold, as the other pairs until now looked the same. Wierd

    So. Its basically the same shoes, but its just not that obvious for before, due to the colour is quite misleading. Also, as you have posted in the first pic, if you look in to detail, you can see that the red ones is the same as the blue ones, its just not that clear.
    Hope this information will be helpful to you.
