    Ha my local smith is the exact same way. I'm in there every week and I've never seen another person in the tennis department. I'll have to see if they're getting rid of it in illinois too

    Not exactly what I was asking, more so that I couldn't see the price tags on the Nike shirts, and I wanted to know how good of a deal you got

    Since some *********s are not going to carry tennis stuff anymore, would any other tennis items(racquets, strings, balls) be discounted?

    it's tax free weekend here in NC (back-to-school shopping). Anyways, the wife and I went to the outlets in Smithfield and it was a bust in under armour and Nike (as usual). Nike had one pair, one pair, of vapor 8s, Sz 9, for $80. I get it, its an outlet store but $80 would be reasonable anywhere else outside of an outlet. My wife and I went to Adidas and picked this stuff up. It was BOGO 50% off any item of equal or lesser value...

    [​IMG]

    barricade polo ($30) and shorts ($20+50% off). outfit was about $40.

    Wife found these...

    ^^ I commended both the cashier and the store manager on duty for having tennis apparel when nike did not. Both men were quite pleased that I had a pleasant shopping experience. Furthermore, the store manager was taken aback as well as found it laughable that Nike did not have tennis related items and apparel as the nike walls are littered with pictures of Federer, Nadal, Serena, and Sharapova. Adidas had two 32" photos of Caroline Wozniacki pasted with larger posters of other Adidas team sports icons hanging outside the store, and that was it. Adidas made the effort in having spring barricade crews and polos as well as the shorts to match. Also, Adidas had Barricade 6.0s and team shoes, as well as Responses. Same thing went on the womens side for shoes. It is what it is tho, another huge win for adidas when it comes to outlet shopping.

    i couldnt agree more. it's ok if nike only had tennis stuff every once in a while, but when they put these athletes all over their store, they better carry their stuff!

    this thread has inspired me to hit up the local adidas and nike outlets for cheap gear.

    i try to hit up TW's liquidation section as often as possible but i think outlet pricing will be even better.

    It's sometimes much better, just kind of have to be either lucky or know a worker there to get those great deals.

    Just a few of the stuff that I bough from Nike clearance. I let pass many shirts and shorts since I didnt need them. When you go to my Nike Clearance you need to buy when you found things cause if you let it pass, their is an middle eastern man that buy in amount of $10,000 in between shoes and cloths. And I dont like to be rush to buy anything so many time I let pass shoes, shirts etc.

    All shirts for 9.99, and shorts for 11.99

    Start with some of my dirty cloth :)

    There are a lot of Nike Pro combat gear at Ross right now. I picked up a few of the fitted shirts, my favorite shirts to play tennis in. Also at Marshalls there were a few nice Sportswear jackets.

    had a long lunch break and browsed ross & marshals.

    white nike drifit shorts for 14.99 and asics gel game for 30.

    but alas i didn't pull the trigger. i was hesitant to get the shorts as they where white. thinking about it now i should have.

    the asics just felt odd. i could have used it as every day shoes but it didn't work out.

    i got some oil and vinegar bottles instead for $3 bucks.

    Picked up a pair of Barricade 5's today for $60. I was so happy, it's impossible to get cheap size 14 shoes nowadays.

    So how do you guys know which marshalls and tj maxx's to look at? I checked both of mine in my area (suburban philly) and didn't see not even 1 tennis item. Seeing your guys' pics of finding nadal hats and tops makes me so mad!!!! hahaha

    Found a few pair of these gems, got them for considerably less than retail and just in time as my current Vapor VI are on the outs. These blow any vapor 7 or 8 out of the water. The hunt for even more backups continues...

    So jealous of those VI's. I'm a size 11 too but am on my last one. I might just try the 2k11 next because they're pretty similar.
