    I can confirm this because i just went to M I D W E S T headquarters yesterday and they told me that there is a 6 month warranty on the cages.

    aeropro master do you know why ******* is now selling the blue/grey cages ahead of time?

    is feb release for them a wrong date?

    or are they just getting them way ahead of time . ..

    OK, thanks, squints! :)
    I was at that same mall yesterday and the traffic and crowds were crazy, and there was zero parking anywhere. It was worse than trying to drive around midtown Manhattan! :shock:

    I thought they were only taking pre-orders for now? I think you might not actually get the shoes until Feb.?

    with "drag on" now on the vapors, does this mean they will offer a 6-month for them as well?

    lol @ the new cages. now nike is just getting cocky. my thinking is that they are thinking "what if we put out exactly the same shoe as before BUT we make our logo longer, say it has better support, and raise the price? do you think people would still buy it? let's find out" this is a joke. they're even a bit heavier than the regular cages, so as just to make sure that this shoe has no improvements over the previous model. what a joke.

    I got to take a look at the Fall 08 Nike shoe catalog, and I noticed that there will be a Cage II in white/red. Its practically all white with the underlay mesh being red. Very similar to that photoshopped white/blue version. Ill try to get pics for you guys unless you guys already have seen it or know it. Theres also another almost allwhite colorway, but only the swoosh and the inner lining is black.

    For the Vapor V, there is an all-white with royal blue swoosh. And also a white/black/red colorway. That one has the swoosh being black with the fit frame and forefoot outsole being red.

    I just bought the new Cage 2 at my local shop. Nice and comfy shoe. I wouldnt have spent 115 bucks on it, but me and my mom went halves for Christmas so I decided to get it. Overall just from moving around the house in them, they are a comfy and fairly light shoe, especially compared to barricade 4s.

    Is it just me or are the new Federer Vapor V's just plain hideous? I think they look CRAP in that color! I hope a change of color makes it look nicer, cuz the Vapor IVs are way better looking. Actually I think the Vapor Speeds a year back are really nice, even better than vapor IVs.

    I agree. I think the Vapor IV's look way better than the Vapor V's. That's why I just stocked up on the Vapor IV's before they're all gone. :)

    ditto. I'm not too fond of anything new from Nike, especially the older cages. I'm not too sure about these new ones, perhaps they might grow on me. All i know is, Nike should bing the level of customization for their tennis shoes up to par with the rest of their shoes.

    I'm not convinced by the new vapors-they've just been fiddled for the sake of it really. iv's are far sleeker looking. Saying that, because Federer wore custom iv's, are the v's basically his version of the iv's or is he still gonna have 'special shoes'?

    i guess i'm the odd man out here because i really like the new vapors. to me they look like a perfect blend of all the previous vapors and look a tad bit more bulky than the last version which i like. right now i'm wearing vapor IV but i can't wait to try this shoe out

    No, no purple cages. Could be in the next season catalog, who knows. Sorry if the scan is a little whited out. I did my best as I scanned a scan of the catalog.

    Thanks for the pics of the catalog, staedtler.

    Seeing those pics of the two new colorways of the Vapor V, now I'm REALLY glad I stocked up on the Vapor IV. :)

    Staedtler - Are the vapor V's comming out in all black in the summer line? Thought I saw this color somewhere. Sorry if it has already been posted... haven't read through this thread entirely.

    Sorry I dont have pics of the clothing as I dont have access to those and I really dont work in clothing.

    Babolast, these are pretty much all the premium tennis shoes in the Fall catalog, or at least the ones that I thought would interest members here. There are some city courts and del mar IIs, but those dont look good or anything.

    Edberg, I dont know about the black vapors. I do have the spring catalog, which also might include summer. But I do remember what tennis shoes were in there and it was pretty much the new shoes that just came out. I'll see if I can access the summer catalog, but I have a feelign its included in the spring catalog.

    Also its kind of weird that Im looking at the Fall catalog, but most of these shoes are coming out in what would seem to be summer.

    Yeah, no brown vapors, but thats not to say they wont be in next season's catalog. As I said earlier, I dont have access to the clothing catalogs as I work in footwear design.

    Is he really a legend amongst athletic footwear designers? he's certainly a legend amongst sneakerheads...

    I just realized that besides Jordans, he also played a major part in many of Agassi's footwear in the 90's...

    I, for one, am certainly a fan...

    The cross trainer that Hatfield designed in the early 80's (Johnny Mac's) came about after he saw a guy working out in the gym and then change his shoes to go running.

    Hmmm...you're right. The upper on one side of the shoe is completely different than in the pic above. Perhaps the pic above and on the other website was just of a prototype version and now TW has the actual production version? Just a guess.

    I don't know why Nike removed that tiny swoosh on the front of the shoe near the bottom of the laces. Vapor IV's had it and it gave them this really elegant touch. I know it wasn't very noticeable but I still liked it.

    i noticed the differences too-but that happened with the iv's. There were different colored sole designs for identical versions on different sites, so imagine its just the differences in the publicity shots or prototypes etc. You'd think TW would have the real versions

    I got this picture from a friend, who says they are selling this vapor color.

    I may be sick.

    Has Nike really discontinued any 3/4 mid shoes in the future? I've been hooked on them for 20 years now....

    wow

    the cage looks good! too bad dont like air max for tennis, a bit too high and mushy for me

    vapor 5's look good as well.

    great minor improvements on the design!

    even though it's on the insole, the classic nike tennis court logo is what made me go with the vapors over the new cages...and at $70 from my local pro shop, i couldn't pass em up.
