    I like flashy tennis shoes, shoes that are going to stand out, and that no one else will have. So I've been looking for some and found the volt Vapors and the Noosa Gel Res 4s. The Vapors are too much for a not so durable shoe and the Noosas are just ugly. So please recommend flashy shoes available in a men's 9.5 :)

    P.S. I also loved the stars and stripes Propulses

    If you want flamboyant flash, try the blue Yonex 308 or the lime green new Wilsons. Of course Asics has some really crazy multi colored shoes now. All these are high quality shoes too.

    Asics GR 4 in the TW colorway

    Edit: Nevermind. These are the "Noosa" ones you mentioned.

    I loved that colorway. Bought a pair when they were first released. Will buy another once they come up with a new, equally Agassi-circa-1990 design, but I did get the black/green as my warranty replacement pair.

    Never bought Yonex shoes, but those look pretty flashy.

    definitely not the last pair. i've owned both colors of the 4.3 and the white volt ones are way brighter. I think the flashiest ones would be the 2k12's however

    I know, I really loved the S&S Babs, wish I would have picked them up. I like the B7s, its just I'm trying to go for the cheaper shoes.

    I definitely recommend the Volt Vapors. There were a lot of turned heads when I was at Indian Wells yesterday. And that was even before I rocked the Volt socks with it

    Those would be my first choice, but I can't spend 130 on a pair of shoes, 100 is my max

    If you like them, keep checking them from week to week and they will be on sale. The price will drop to 100 or less but at that time you should buy fast as people jump on top of them.

    B7s are flashy and they have been great on the tennis court!

    I get random people and not so random people who comment on how fab the B7s look. I do wear the high energy colourway which I just adore! Of course, get a colour way which suits your personality ;)

    The B7 performs well on the court for me too!

    You just have to get over the initial break in!

    Pink Vapor 9 are sure to turn some heads... And they'll go on sale in less than a month.

    I'm betting that is what the TW exclusive GR5 Noosa will look like.

    The Nike's aren't going to stand out simply because that's the Fed shoe line and you're bound to see people wearing them. I agree about the Yonex brand standing out. Don't see many Yonex racquet players never mind the shoes. The colors also stand out. Asics are more common but certain colors will stand out as well like my old blue GR2's.

    I'm rocking the yellow CC Feather II's right now. The feather line isn't as popular as the barricades so it's a bit more standout than usual for Adidas.

    No love for the Prince Rebel 2? Great shoe and more durable than the Vapors. Also the black and yellow colorway is sure to stand out.

    Where did they sell these shoes originally?

    Best-looking tennis shoe I have ever seen

    Wait till French open Vapor 9s come out and the Volts should drop down to about $104 typical TW discount from past Vapor 9s sales but act fast as they seem to fly off the shelves but not sure Volt color will :twisted:.

    I just scored a pair of Babolat Stars & Stripes at the Sea Colony Tennis Center in Bethany Beach,DE. Played with them tonight. Great shoe, not much break in. I retied and readjusted the straps after warmup. They fit and felt great for the match. The look on my wife's face when she saw them was priceless. My son thinks they are awesome. I agree.

    Maybe it's because English is not my first language, but I wouldn't call these FLASHY.

    I would call them FUGLY.

    I got these shoes as I too look for colors. I had the yellow GR3 and they fit great in size 13. These GR4 seem tight in toebox. I would probably need 13.5 but I don't know they do 1/2 sizes but they would be boats. The Asics were the best shoes I have had in long time and I suspect the 4s are not a good fit but I like the crazy color. I actually like the color of the new women's RG5 but not sure how the 5s compare fit to RG3 (I am not buying a lady's shoe). Looks like I am back to drawing board trying to find that fancy shoe with good fit. I am going to order the Red Yonex 308 online but have no clue how my RG3 size 13 would equate to Yonex size, anyone have recommendation on size I might consider?

    I know the TW exclusive GR4 Noosa is out, will there be a GR5 version or are you mistaken?

    if there is one i would love to see an all black GR5 or black and white, something less out there but still catches attention. Besides, if you want a flashy GR5 just get the yellow ones.

    Prodigy1234 and PhotoBlue,

    FYI - They still have a few pair of Stars & Stripes left. Not sure what sizes though.

    Stopped by the pro shop at the Sea Colony Tennis Center, Bethany Beach, DE, and they have 3 pairs of Babolat Stars & Stripes left - men's 8.5, 10 and 10.5. Krista said they will ship them.
