    did not know Nike was planning on making a blue 2.3 ballistic for Nadal, this has come as a surprise., they look nice in this one photo. on outer side, the swoosh is black on a white panel but primarily sky blue. gonna have to get a pair of these. the white and orange had a short run.

    photo here of blue 2.3:

    Is it me, or does the blue on his seem different to the retail ones? Seems more darker.

    could be. Nike sometimes changes colors slightly for Nadal. Last year's US Open 1.3 white and yellow had a dark BLUE swoosh, you could only tell it wasn't black if you saw it close up in person.

    if nadal's doubles partner is able to get them, does that mean we are getting them also?

    Or did nike just provide nadal's doubles partner with a pair...

    if you look closely though the tongues aren't the same. the partner has the retail version while nadal has his with the extended length.

    Just a shame they dont sell them with the bull logo, imo they look way better with the logo on them.

    something weird about that picture marshredder, the sole on that is not for the ballistec, it's for the Lunarlite. I think they made a mistake.

    I always wondered how the birds get them before TW.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I can't figure out the secret of how to order things off of their site. I think I'm gonna get the grey/green/blue ones (FO) anyway though (unless I end up getting both)

    You can't order Nike off of their site. You have to call and make the order. It's quicker if you refer to the product number from the site.

    that's because the ballistecs are in the foreground and they have a lunarlite shoe next to it just showing the sole. probably to showcase the new nike line.

    You can also see that Rafa's shoes have the rubber coming further up the heel so covering the max air bubble on the inside of the heel.
