    is the orange on these shoes really as bright as it appears in these pics or is the flash making it seem so? this is the first pic of these shoes that has made me really want to buy them. on the TW product page, the orange seems a little darker.

    robJar, is this the one in Ledgewood? I haven't seen any tennis shoes there in a while what you got was a great deal, Did you notice if they had any 11's? I might go pick up a pair.

    Nope, the one in paramus near paramus park, off of route 17 if you know where that is. They might still have 10.5's, and i think i saw a pair of 11's, but i'm not completely sure if they're still there.

    It's a bit lighting, but it's brighter than I originally assumed. when I saw them at the Rack, not only was I shocked, but the color really threw me for a loop. Super bright, but super comfy ride!

    Hope my Nordie's Rack starts to get some tennis shoes in. I went in last week and the only tennis shoes I saw in any size were KSwiss Approach's for $31.99. Not bad but for another $20 I'll get some CB 2.3.

    Hey N23: any chance your N-racks had a 10 or 10.5 in the black 2.3? or even the solid white ones in 10 or 10.5?

    Dang, great find. The closest Nordstorm Rack to me is about 2.5 hours away but I'll definitely make a stop there as soon as I have the occasion.

    i'm pretty lucky when it comes to finding shoes. The Lunarlites were the best find to date. Other than that, I've found Nike S2's, Vapor Speeds, ...... list goes on...

    Finally, some pretty good finds @ Rugged Warehouse...

    All the shirts were $16.99. Didn't like the polos (didn't like the all cotton feel)
    The sleeveless didn't drive me wild, but felt a lot looser in the chest/mid section than previous sleeveless shirts.

    Lookin for the Nadal Polos....

    Did they have any of those nike sleeveless tops remaining? If so, would it be possible for you to pick one up for me?

    Email me through my profile.

    I'll try and go back this weekend (i'm watching my neice and nephew). I didn't see any smalls, had a few M, 2 L, and 2 XL. I'll also point out that they had many sizes of the sleeveless in all black/black dots.

    What's your size?

    I apologize, the shirt is black with obsidian/dark grey dots. This was brought to my attention by djokster. Is that cool or would you like to pass?

    I could have had a spectacular day today and made away with the lunarlites in black/red, vapor 6 in red/black and the 2.3 ballitecs in the white and orange but I decided to pass them up considering all the shoes I buy and don't wear. I tried on the 2.3's for the first time and they felt amazing! So much better than the 1.3's. It's true what you guys are saying, potential gsoat. Haha

    In my opinion, they are not same as TJ/marshalls or Ross.
    those stores usually get same items nationally but rugged warehouse stores often has certain items at certain stores. I've seen 09 federer Wimbledon shorts at one store but the other three stores, never got the short.
    yesterday, I also went the store and saw some old tennis apparels (not really attractive though) but I found an Adidas track jacket in clearance section for only $10 (not tennis apparel though but other track jackets are better design and quality than tennis jackets).

    You can see my location where I reside. There are three that are around me, durham being the farthest.

    Yes, I can agree that these stores are hit and miss. However, none of the TJ Maxx, Ross, and Marshalls in my area and area's surrounding are selling men's tennis (just lots of women's tennis at the moment), unless you like Adidas Basic Polos for tennis, and I do not.

    It's ridiculous how 2.3's and the newest vapor models are being sold for $50.. I wish deals like that ran frequently in Jersey.

    I went to the Nike clearance outlet in Pigeon Forge, TN today and found some great stuff really cheap!

    I found this shirt in teal, black, and yellow, pretty much all sizes, for $12.99 + 40% off ($ 8 )! I bought one teal one for myself and a teal and a yellow one for a friend of mine.

    I saw about a total of 5 RF hybrid hats at the Ross stores in my area (4 total). They were only dark blue (Obsidian) though, no Mahogany.

    However, I did see 2 Nike Winter Tennis Woven Hat (TW still has it for $20), at Ross for 6.99 in the Dark Obsidian Navy w/ Mahogany. Comfortable hat. I picked up one.

    Besides the hats, no new tennis clothes though. It seems as if my Ross/Marshalls/TJ Maxx stores in town did not receive any Nike or Adidas Fall/Winter 09 gear. Too bad.
    Cheers!

    It was luck that I saw them. I usually only check for featherlights at Ross. I wore my RF hat around town all day today. I felt like such the tennis nerd. Proud of it, though!

    Yeah, very good deals overall. If you can actually make it to a Nike outlet that has a good selection of tennis clothes you can come out pretty good. With their % off deals, you can do really well! I mean, Nadal's shorts for $19.99 is good, but $12 is outstanding! I wish the outlet about 50 minutes away from me actually carried something good. UGH.

    Cheers!
