    So I just picked up the athracite/red/white Vapor 8's yesterday and I must say, they're really clean. They're not as cool as the ones that Fed is wearing in that one picture but they're still great. I got them for 90$ at a pro shop, so not a bad deal at all. (Sorry for the picture quality. I don't own a camera haha)

    Pretty much. It says athracite but I compared it to my black/red Vapor VI's and you can't even tell the difference really.

    TMC, they have more white on the side. They look way better in my opinion..

    Ahh, ok, thanks for that. You never know, that might have just been an earlier design or something.
    I like your ones regardless!

    Yeah I picked up a pair too and while they still do look fantastic...Feds are better. But those in the pic are the Vapor 8 hybrids which he has hardly worn all year in light of using his VI hybrids, so it will be interesting to see if he comes out with a completely new VI hyrid for the USO or gives the 8's a try again...

    I can't believe nobody has really heard or seen what he exclusive day kicks will be???

    Maybe the ones with more white will b the day exclusives... The ones for retail for the night.... Unless they make an all white version with some red and black.

    Those shoes are srsly GOATworthy. Nice purchase.

    Slightly off topic, but have your other shoes in the picture (the French open '10 Lunarlites) started to come apart? A number of people on the boards (myself included) had real problems with the glue on one side of the shoe Epicfailing, leading to the sole separating from the upper.
