    That's exactly what I saw with a 9.5 dynamic fit.
    The swoosh was more vibrant but it could be the flash/light.

    I forgot it was a 9.5...
    I Just applied a pattern on the "fingers" to make it looks more the 9.5.
    (refresh the page and you should see it)
    It's not perfect, but you get it !

    Not yet unfortunately.
    I guess it's lighter than the shade we see on the promo pic.

    It´s really great. The external part of the dynamic fit seems vibrant as in the vapor 6 Black/red US Open in the pic I saw.

    Not sure Fed will wear the "sparkles" wristbands.
    I see him wearing a plain black wristband or a black wristband with a grey band ;)

    My bad, more "shiny".

    Don't know if it's cause of the light/flash of the camera.

    I don't think so. I think he will be wearing a plain black bandana or a plain magnet grey bandana. I think the head tie are made for Rafa. But I could be wrong.

    I just received an email from TWEurope with a Nike promo pic showing the polo.
    The lighter one on the left Could be the real thing.

    What's the point with the double swoosh on the shorts?

    Should just be a mistake.
    Moreover, on the final version the swoosh is "hyper punch".

    The one on the left is great. Lighter green, minty.

    With the one for Toronto/Cinci, it would a good duo.

    Nike...why...why did you put this colorway on the Air Cage Advantage and not the Air Max Cage?

    [​IMG]

    These don't have the 6-month warranty, and since I burn through the Max Cages in 3 months, I'd hate to see what I do to the Cage Advantage...

    You would imagine Nike wouldn't release 2 almost identical colours, but that looks so much like the mint it's unbelievable.

    Not sure it was a smart move releasing 2 consecutive outfits of a shade of green top with a shade of blue shorts.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the colours, but don't really see people buying both!

    About Vapor 9.5 LE :
    I was told the sparkles were smaller, and the NIKE logo full-black.
    Is it more realistic like these guys ?

    OK !
    Looks very nice then !!!
    I like the smaller and subtil sparkles this way, it's nicer.
    I didn't like the first "mezzo" attempt I made that was too catchy !

    are the us open nike bandana of nadal difficult to the bandanas before? i mean, it look like that the swoosh ist bigger, they got a different color on the back....and the bandanas are called "headbands"

    it looks like that it don`t must be folded...

    am i right?

    will nadal wear these "headbands"?

    Indeed, there are not bandanas but head ties that you don't fold.

    However, for the ones who wear bandanas here, I am not convinced that these head ties are as good as the bandanas. I mean, each head is different and not everybody wears the bandana with the same "width" on the head.

    With a bandana, you have the possibility to fold the bandana until you get the good width for your forehead. With these new kind of head ties, there is only one width possible... (hope you guys understand what I mean...))
    So, not sure they will pass with someone who has a small forehead.

    I guess Nike will make a bandana especially for nadal with this print on.

    Surely the difference lays in that bandanas are thick and will therefore absorb more sweat whilst headties are just going to keep hair out of your face?

    I've gotten 3 of the new Statement crews with the different colored sleeves, I love the look and feel of those shirts. Quality for sure.

    I also just today got a pair of the grey Premier shorts, the feel a little stiffer, but still quality with the air vents on the sides.
    I'm awaiting a pair of the 2-in-1 Printed 9 inch Dark Magnet grey shorts to go with the Blue statement polo (Dimitrov's outfit), that outift to me is the best one Nike has released for the Fall.

    I do hate that in the promo pics with Dimitrov the polo shows a light blue line from the neck to the sleeve, which did not make it onto the actual shirt.

    I heard the Rafa sleeveless fits very tight. Might have to order a size up.

    Nice haul.

    Could you report back if tennis balls really stay in that pouch on the back of the long sleeve shirt and how it feels? I was thinking about picking one up to practice in. Thanks.

    @Jerome2606, as another bandana user I was thinking the tie just wouldn't collect enough of my sweat, the primary reason I wear one.

    I know many have mentioned it and im unsure if the pics are real or not but if you go on facebook and look for tennisspree he has a picture posted of the LE vapors. Black/Hyper punch. I won't post a pic since i know TW will remove it.

    ^^^^^ Excellent find! Thanks for sharing.

    So did you all read what he said? Just search on facebook tennispree - it will be the 1st result - go and look (I'm not digging - guess I'm getting old :) ) - don't be a knob and put the pic in this thread and get the whole thread deleted. Thanks for your cooperation.
