    These are my new babies

    Apparently they are 1 of 10 pairs in the UK, and from an incredibly limited run, made exclusively for Federer and his friends. They are the left overs from this stock and were given to this shop owner as a gift by Nike.
    To put this into perspective, the Rafa cotton candy/bubblegum limited edition ballistecs were available for purchase by all retailers and number about 2500 (i think)- these were not available for retailers to buy.
    I am aware that they are similar to the proposed Masters cup version, and was initially dubious of buying them because of this, but these are not that version- the colours differ slightly and they have the 'all-important' RF logo (and the fact the masters cup ones aren't out yet!)
    So, here they are, if anyone has any questions or want more pictures, please go for it. I'm currently torn between wearing them and throwing them on the bay...it might hurt to do so though, but student debt isn't fun! Moral dilemma, no?

    Nice look different, never seen a colorway close to them before. I would imagine they could fetch a pretty penny on the bay, especially after Sunday. I initially thought it was a Nike iD shoe, kinda reminded me of the Kobe IV.

    Nice. Been waiting for the pics since you posted in the apparel thread. **** could get you a lot of dosh for those!

    Oh, now I see why you were saying "the bay". Only joined a month ago and didn't realise they were that strict.

    Wow, those are so effen sweeeettttt!!! Thanks for posting the photos. When I saw Fed wearing them, I was hoping Nike would release them. Here they are at IW:

    Instead, we are getting a greyer version of them. Not nearly as nice.

    Just thought I'd come in here a second time and say how nice those shoes are. Can't wait for them to come out. Too bad the retail ones are a bit on the grey side.

    I wouldn't really wear them. They look too good to wear! :) But it's your choice.

    US size 8- they only had very limited sizes!

    I'm not sure yet, thats the problem. I can basically either keep them for show like you said, wear them or sell. Seriously torn on what to do atm!

    I'd get fed's signature on them and keep them for awhile as they appreciate in value

    Hmm...not sure about the '1 of 10 pairs in the UK' and 'made for his friends' sales patter you got on these... They stock them at a certain racketsport specialists in SW19...

    They look good though - was tempted myself... But managed to resist!

    that was were they came from- i accept it was probably slightly elaborated, but the basic limited edition-ness fits in, so i'm happy.
    I failed to resist....miserable :-D

    BDAZ,
    I think the difference is that these are white, while ones coming out in OCt. look kind of grey/silver.
    I could be and hope I am wrong.
    I like the white ones that are in this thread.

    Cheers.
    I think the Master's ones are a kind of v.dark grey rather than solid black and don't think they'll have the RF.
    Still so torn on what to do with them! :-(

    ok guys, basically because i'm unsure what to do, if anyone would like to try and 'convince' me to part with them, my email is TMCW140@aol.com
    This isn't a firm decision on selling them, just more of an opening it up to potentially considering it! :)

    Actually cushioning is the upside, especially in the forefoot. Main downside is that flywire is like plastic and it takes a month to break them in, at least the black ones.

    Takes 3 or 4 wears to break in the V6s. Excellent shoes that hold up pretty well. I've had mine for 6 months and am due for another pair, but they have lasted better than any others I've had.
