    i believe they do, google irvine tennis and it should be your first link and contact info is on the page. i know they have it priced at $90 at the store, but they gave me a deal when my friend bought a new aeroprodrive and because i go there often for all my stringing/shoes/accessories. i'm not sure if they can give it to you for $70 for just one pair but if you purchase more than 1 item, they always give you great deals. hope that helps.

    I might get the Vapor V's or get another pair of Breathe Free II's. I've got a Breathe Free II (Blue/Grey) and Adidas Baricade V already but theres a sale over here where I can the V's for 80 Aussie Dollars (Roughly 90 US) and Breathe Free II's (Blue/grey OR Orange/Dark Blue) for 90 Aussie Dollars (100 US). Usually these will retail here for around 200, so yeah I'm stocking up. Are the Vapors better for Hardcourt or clay (we have En tous cas courts here [Melbourne]- or however you spell it)?

    I dont think so. But Im sure you could go to like your local footlocker, tennis store or some shoe store that sells nikes, and you could possibly ask to see their nike catalogs.

    Review of the vapor v:

    Nice feel for this year, vapor 5 introduces a much more stable shoe than any previous models of the vapor. It seems as though nike listened when players wanted more stability in the upper and responded with a shoe that combines the upper of an Adidas barricade with the slim, low to ground feel of the vapor v heritage. One thing to note is that nike's new heat block tech prevents any major break-in of this shoe. You should by this exactly the right size and width fit, because unlike the previous models this one doesn't stretch. I wore mine for a total of 24hrs on court to test the break in and they still feel the same. The nice addition of the mesh paneling on the inner sides of the shoe allows for a cooler feel inside the shoe. All in all it is a very comfortable shoe. I would recommend this over the new cage, as it comes off a bit too stiff for a tennis shoe.

    Thanks for the review Leon, very helpful! Are the insoles like the ones in the old cages(ie slightly textured and spongy)? Can't quite make it out on the picture above. Have you worn vapors before, and if so, best yet? I wear iv's and love em, but sadly they're developing a hole in the toe :-(
    Thanks for the insight!

    I've worn every generation of the vapors since the vapor speed 2. Compared to each generation, the combined pros of each gen are mixed together in the vapor 5. The insoles are like the old cages (personal opinion) but the nice thing about them is that they are removable - a first in vapor shoes. Also, if you really like the iv's then the v's will give you the same great low to ground feel with more focus on the stability. I found that my iv's lacked a lot of stability, so on the run shots were tougher to recover from. The v introduces "claws" similar to the barricade series from adidas.

    maybe this might be a bit 'apples vs. oranges', but would you know how they compare to the Cage I's? I'm wearing those right now, so that's my only 'point of reference'... thanks again...

    The vapor 5 is a lower profile in the heel than the cage, as the zoom air unit is a more on the ground feel. If you like having a lifted feel for your heel and really like the bounce from it, stick with it, but consider getting the same ones. Going from a cage I to a cage II is a dynamically different feel for most (this can be a personal experience). If you are a pretty aggressive baseliner, stick with the cage; if you have an all court game or like to serve and volley, go with the vapors. Hope this helped :)

    I wore the Speed 2. I have a semi-wide foot. Eventually they fit fine, but had to wear them a while to stretch them. Are the new V's a little wider?

    they are definitely wider than any of the previous generations. I found no restricting feel when i first put each shoe on, and the general break in period for this shoe is non-existent, as mine feel the same as the day i got them. I know for a fact that the v's wont stretch as much though because of the stability build on the uppers. Hope this helps, slappano :confused:

    well thats good to hear. If they are a wider shoe, then that should be ok. I guess once the black ones come out i will see at that time how they fit.

    Thanks again Leon... that does help... I'm pretty much rooted at the baseline and have been very happy with my Cage I's so I guess thats what I'll stick with... :)

    The way the shoe fits also has a lot to do with your foot type. I have a pretty neutral foot, so my arch doesnt fall a lot so it doesnt widen out. I would definitely suggest trying on these shoes before buying them
