    She's with Nike. I liked her better in Adidas though.

    I thought Raonic was screwed for coolness when signed with NB. I was wrong

    I dont know.

    His shirt is awesome.
    He is finally wearing longer shorts.
    And he has bulked a bit.

    Couple his new clothes with a base Vapor color and it would look sick. You can't match green shoes with anything. That is why the green Nike 3.3s sold like ass

    He looked like a little boy that outgrew his clothing in those lacoste shirts and shorts. Lacoste polo's run really short in sleeve length and overall length - really bad match up for someone of his height. Not to mention that Nike clashes with Lacoste anyway.

    I hope that 996 shoe he has on comes in under $100. It's the replacement for the 851 which was never over $80 (despite what TW's listing claims was the original price)

    I wouldn't consider tennis.com a reliable pricing source. They also say racquets are $260 in their reviews and we all know that's not the case. It's a fair bet they may come in under that when they hit online.

    TW confirmed they are $99.95. That's unfortunate that its a $20 price jump over the previous model. Gotta pay those new endorsements somehow I guess

    This is a great fit. NB puts out all of this nice product, but had no one to sell it. Milos has a shot at some stardom, so this could really pay off for NB.

    I would like to see Under Armour to make a high profile signing.

    I have used nothing but NB for years. I wear 10.5 EEEE.

    Other brands are not even an option. They are too narrow and feel flimsy. NB always feel great, IMO.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some people think Nike tennis shoes are pretty ugly.

    Leaving Lacoste and going anywhere is an improvement in "coolness". :shock:
