    Any thoughts on this shoe? I think it's great that they came up with this new release. It's available at my local Dutch warehouse but I'm not sure TW sells it aswell.

    Not available over here Pro Staff Pete and your local Dutch warehouse will not ship over here to the States so any suggestions? Would love to have a pair as well as some other Nike stuff your local Dutch warehouse won't ship over here. They say their shipper can't/won't do it.

    Yeah I'm currently using Vapor's but they've become all slippy so it's time to refresh :) Playing more on clay lately so I might wanna give these a try.

    jelichek: you could ask TW whether they are going to sell these in the near future. I'd quicker say yes than no

    i have an original release of the clay oscillates dead-stock in a box. they are white and grey with a red swoosh and it says 'zoom air' on the forefoot outsole rather than this edition's traction pattern.

    No place here in the States including Nike itself. I checked. Several across the pond but they don't seem to be able to ship over here. One told me their shipper can't do it and the other that it would be about 100 euros to get them here. Sounds strange as I've sent stuff over there with no problems but that's what I've been told.

    yes, the TW version is even better than the previous, drc is added for longer wear on the outsole. They run small in size btw...

    well, usual nike is hard :) i wear everything from 9-10,5 on nike myself. my Vapor V is 10 and equals about 10,5 on oscillate... i have a pair in 10 and they are a bit smaller than my Vapor size 10. :)

    many thanks for your kind attention. this is being very helpfull to me.

    funny because i always seem to go ok with 10. so you say that if a vapor 10 fits ok with me, i should go 10,5 on Oscillates.

    I got some from TW and I'm usually a 10 and I went to 10.5 and they fitted perfectly.

    By any chance do you still have Oscillates in size 12 which you might want to sell? Thank you in advance.

    Did anyone ever notice Pete's version for clay had two of the leather sections removed for breathability? Pretty slick.

    To Pro Staff Pete:
    The oscillates have a great traction, very low to the ground feel. Great clay shoes. Had them also, but for myself I prefer the fit of the vapors


    I am seeking for vapors with a herringbone sole for a long time now. Does anyone where you can find these back here in Europe?
