    Found these today at Rugged Warehouse for $60. They were way too big for my feet (12.5).....

    nope, just left them there.... someone else can put them to better use. If the shoes were $40, I may have considered purchasing them. I'd rather save my money....

    bad idea to sell it on bay. will not make $$$. especially shoes.

    $60 plus tax + bay and paypal fees + shipping

    sellers have to sell it at least $90 to make about $10 profit. not worth to make $10 for packing and go to post office. Also I don't think there are many people who want to pay $90 plus around $15 shipping.

    TW sells it for $89 including shipping.

    This was much of the reason why I didn't purchase them. I would be lucky to break even putting these shoes with this type of size (Sz 12.5) on the Bay and I know I wouldn't make a profit. Just didn't make sense.

    Nothing again at my local RW today, as usual!!! I have only gotten lucky 1 time at RW after about 50 tries!! ONE TIME I found a Cage II clay soles for clearance of $10 (my size), and a CB 1.3 for $10 (too big, sold on eB@y), and that's been it. That was like 2 yrs ago.

    Yea I couldn't believe it either. Apparently it was a guy who was trying to get into the game a few years back but never actually got on court. I had the feeling on hitting the lottery once they arrived on my doorstep.

    Haven't seen any in a while and that's here in California. Ross usually carries some but haven't seen them there either. Maybe it's not the season yet.

    Picked up adidas barricade polo at local outlet in Gravesend for £7 (which still has size M and XL in Nadal's 2010 Wimbledon top) and a sample version of Vamos Masters Crew for £10 at Ashford outlet (which also had other samples of Winter 2010 Nike tennis apparel).
    Can someone tell me if there are any differences between the sample I have and retail?

    I think all samples were Medium - kinda regret not buying the red polo Federer wore at ATP finals 2010.

    Sorry, but won't be heading there again until April at earliest - maybe check your nearest Nike Outlet in Tillicoultry?

    Dude it's Tillicoultry. Anyway I was out there in January and they had loads of 2010 Andy Murray polos in white/blue and the blue green (all sizes).
    Not much of the Verdasco line (shorts only, all sizes).
    Some 2010 Barricade 5 in black (Gonzo) and some of the 2010 CC Genius shoes.
    Also loads of the football world cup strips at much cheapness.
    Happy hunting.

    I'm a college student and i call everyone kid. I always say stuff like "this kid over here..." or "that kid's crazy". Wasn't meant as an insult.

    I would say my mom picks things up for me occasionally rather than shops for me occasionally. Sounds like you're incapable :)

    Cant wait to see what other surprises you have to make us jealous. The Marshalls in the Chicago area are terrible!

    Yeah I have thoughts of grandeur that I'm going to walk into Marshalls, Ross, et.al and find that golden nugget or diamond but end up looking and finding bull$41t instead. Nice pickup and deals TW fam!

    Gonna ask if you shopped at second hand shops? Have dozens of Nike gear from back-in-the-day, pre-owned.

    Sometimes, I do. Just this particular visit I took my parents and they bought about $200 worth of different shorts and shirts for my cousins in the philippines (dad found 2 brand new Tommy Bahama shirts with tags for $14/shirt for himself). Anyways, the store has an athletics section and I found the adidas crew.

    Nice find at Plato's closet. The one near me never has any tennis gear. It all depends on where you live, I guess.

    I'm going to get some cool Nike wristbands in sometime next week! I'm pumped!

    Cheers!

    *breaksracket TJMaxxx here in Boone has that white shirt too. As well as the Federer shirt from Cincinnati in 2009 (the teal one) 30$

    The white one here in Boone with the black collar also had subtle white polka dots on it, does that one?
