    I think Nike is going the Adidas route of keeping the shoes for a 2 year cycle.

    Well like tmcw140 said, maybe the 4.3 is going to continue for a bit then a new nadal shoe will come out aswell.I can't really look for a 5.3/new nadal shoe if I have no idea what it looks like lol. Could anyone tell by looking at the V9, that it was gonna be the next vapor? Dought it. Could be there but I haven't seen anything but those 2 new colored shoes

    I guess you would have seen samples of the V10 and 5.3's so it's safe to say there wont come out, at least not until Fall 13.

    I should be seeing the line on Saturday and will fill you guys in. Looks like Rafa will be in 'Total Orange' and Fed in pink.

    What about Del Potro and the rest of the Nike guys?

    Post your thoughts.

    Crew Rafa is wearing is VNeck were as Delpo's is round. So it can't be the same. Also don't know if its just me but Rafa's sleeves and shoulders look like a different lighter blue tone than the rest of the shirt.

    Just got a look at the new nikes...

    Fed for australian open is the same design as the shoes for 2012 but the colors are all black and then pink in the back of the shoe


    Nadal for Australian also keeps the same design as 2012. His color is all neon orange across the shoe. Very cool. Also has a second pair that is all neon yellow.

    For the start of 2013 (Doha till AO) Nadal is in pure pink with like an orange highlighted v-neck finish. And he's got some boring dots on his shirt.

    Federer's 'new look' trying to revive his 2005 style shirts is not really that impressive. But as always, let the GOAT wear the shirts and I'll probably be sold.

    2005 resemblance..

    I think my browser refuses to show pink, because Nads FO crew was some shade of pink, and it looked as red as can be, same with the TV for that matter, and the pics that were posted of his AO 13 crew, looked purple, not pink.

    idk why but I always find spring to be the worst part of the season, but that's just me. For me it's Summer > Fall > Winter > Spring.

    Tiffani, am I allowed to post pics of shoes that aren't out on TW yet, but are already available in other countries?

    I saw the Air Max Cage (or are they called the Air Max Breathe?) today and wanted to share...

    ^ I don't think so... they JUST got the shoes in. When I asked to try them on, they were in a stack of boxes next to a wall. Hadn't even been stocked or labeled/price-tagged yet.

    For me, the fit of the Cages were slightly big. The toe-box felt a bit roomy, while the arches felt high (I have flat-feet though).
