    Any pics? But that's one sweet find tho! How did you managed to get it? Nike store? It could be Rafa's PE shoes.

    There are a few pairs on the UK Bay site... limited sizes. I don't know where the shoes have originated from, but already contacted a couple of sellers for additional sizes. As far as I know, there aren't any retailers, either here or abroad, that have these beauties up for sale... These aren't clay outsole shoes BTW, regular hard court sole. For us on the US that is good news... I hope I can find a pair!!!!

    It can't be Nadal PE shoes since his shoes has different outsole and huge tongues.
    Probably it can be sample or promotional shoes.

    Correct, it's not his same shoe... just a special edition release that never made it state-side... and quite rare across the pond I presume as it's taken this long for us to get a chance to see them.

    I see you've got a pair up for sale on the bay... Any chance you might venture out and see if you can pick up a UK size 6.5????

    I can try, but that's all they had : ( I did ask but as usual the staff don't really know much and said its just samples, they have no control over what they get or even know what they're getting. It just arrives.

    They're obviously not 'samples' as they're UK size 8.5

    Just today, a guy at work who lives in Camarillo, CA (he's got a LONG drive to work!) - said there were RF jackets and t-shirts at the Nike Outlet store.

    Plenty of good deals to be had. These finds were accumulated 2 weeks worth.
    Nike factory had a huge tennis clearance where shirts were marked at high discounts then an additional 30% off. In total spent ~184 for over shirts give or take.

    The orange and grey striped were just under 10 after final sale
    The green RF were under 7 each (marked at 11 and then 30% off)
    The green court shirts were under 7 each

    White rf shirt 50% off retail could of bargained lower but didn't want
    [​IMG]

    Vapor 9.5 qs camo not a fan but for 70 and still get the 6 month warrenty I'll take them. They only had Sz 8.5 and still do but I called a factory store in St Augustine and they had two 11.5 size pairs so picked two up at 69.99 after they price matched their website.

    Bag was super cheap at 74.96 picked up one finally for a decent price but now sold out

    I like the camo. I have some digi camo Vapor Trainers (basically Vapor upper) with a gum/indoor/cross training sole. It's more of a fashion shoe for me as I haven't stepped inside a gym/wood court for some time.

    How is the bag?

    This has to be the lucky find of the century.

    Roger Federer's player exclusive US Open shoes from the 2010 US Open. These are not the ltd edition ones they sold, these are Federer's actual Vapor 6 PE version made only for him.

    This is not my find by the way, somebody elses, but worth sharing. He paid a whopping $40 for these! No joke.

    Picked these up for the princely sum of £20 off the auction site. Big fan of the colour, shame it was never released

    Only $22? How in the heck did you get that shoe for that cheap? Also those will match for winter items this season.

    I think £20 off. Not paying for £20 for the shoes.

    I paid £20 all in! Started as an open bid and just never really went up, so basically just got ridiculously lucky

    Anything below $50 for any vapors are great. Even better it's unreleased color version.

    Love them orange Vapors. In friggin love...
    If anyone has them in a US13, well, well...
    Shame the Perth Nike Factory Outlet closed down many years back...
    Used to love that place, I'd but 2 minimum of anything I liked.
    They are $180 Australian full retail.
    Too rich for me. About $120 is the limit.
