Did you buy a pair?
No, I didn't. The rather-bland colorway didn't do it for me.
I wanna go back and try a US10 (I normally wear a US10.5) just to confirm my suspicion that they run big.
They ran big compared to what, the vapors? If so, I'm liking Nike going a bit bigger in the fit (speaking as a wide-footer with a high arch).
Also might be in the minority on this, but really liking those pink vapors. Something different.
Vapors looking alot better in real life rather than on paper. Seems like Nike took the "stars" from the Free Run 3s and put them on the DragOn for the Breathes.
Compared to Nikes in general. I normally wear a US10.5, but felt they fit just a tad big. For me, a US10.5 Vapor 9 felt just right.
But like I said, I want to try them on again, this time in a US10.
Wow, so these breathes might even be roomier than the Vapors. Nice. How was the cushioning compared to the Vapes?
Haha, don't get your hopes TOO high... it was only just a tad big for me.
Could be barely-noticeable for someone else. I'll get back to you in a few days. lol
Still debating on whether or not I should buy the pink vapors... Anybody else gonna be brave enough to buy them?
The new breathe cage will have 6 months durability guarantee?? is such a nice shoe maybe the replacement for my favorite 4.3
Absolutely. Well, unless these new Breathes or maybe the upcoming Gel Res 5 or that fancy Wilson shoe really impress somehow, since those have warranties. But I think the pinks are casually killer and will look great on court. The kind of shoe everyone is initially scared of, but down the road they'll be sought after. To me they're very Agassi-ian, actually, maybe even more so than the recent purples. Will look great with black socks, and possibly with whites, too. Just have to have confidence in the ol' masculinity and roll.
I have a feeling JoelDali thinks these shoes will change the face of the game as we know it.
sounds good to me... if that's the case...
BFII with 4.3 outsole...
Update: Tried on US10's today and I felt that they actually fit better than my usual US10.5. To me, these definitely run a tad big. I also noticed today that the cage toebox felt softer than "cages" in the past.
Didn't get a chance to really test out the cushioning.
Another thing that I liked... Rafa-tongue! Puffier and not attached to the shoe at the sides, like in the Ballistecs.
Also saw these...
Incidentally, the new Vapors and Ballistecs are also more expensive.
They previously retailed here at around US$115, but these new ones are US$128, which I guess is closer to the price-point in the US.
The more I look at these Cages, the more I like them. Not really liking this colorway, so will wait for more to come out before making a purchase.
Awesome pics, man. Digging these pink Vapors even more now. If Breathes are in fact roomier, I'll have to try them on myself at some point, though I love the Vapors.
I think a much cooler yellow/black colorway of the Breathes is due out in a month or so I think? Tomic was wearing them at a tourney earlier this year, they looked nice. These are pretty bland, indeed, but if they feel great, that's the good news.
^ Yeah, I other 2 colorways are
Stadium grey/Neo Turq./White/Squadron
The guy at the Nike shop said that they'll probably be getting those in Jan/Feb.
Great pics my man!
TWE has some of the Spring line up.
How is the orange on these in real life? Really looking forward to them if it's a pretty orange.
You bet, Babs!
Well, it's quite sharp/vibrant/bright if that's what you're looking for. I imagine they'll be even brighter in daylight.
The color is "Total Orange".
F vapor's. Those cages look awesome!
I have a quick question. The all volt/white/black vapors and ballistecs releasing on feb 1, are they going to be released here stateside? Or are they a European/Asian only release? Thanks!
Great, thanks! These are on the must buy list. Nike's total orange is a great color.
P- thanks for the pics! How've you been and merry X-mas to you and your fam!
Agreed and you know why? Because as the breathe evolves, it gets better with each passing model.
I saw the footwear collection at my local store today.. The vapors are AWFUL! The pink really pops out, although the pattern is nice. I really like the CBs and I was about to get them, but we were in a hurry. The pics really don't do any justice- the whole collection (besides the cages) is much brighter in person.
Nike went overboard big time - there will be a lot at the outlet stores in the future. A little pink detailing would have been fine.
I have my gift card ready for the pink and blue polo. does anyone know if it comes out right away on the first or it it going to come out way latter like the black crew fed had for post AUS last year?
TW pics make pink vapors look really ugly... Glad I pulled the trigger on the silver/blue ones at $104 last week...
The pink vapors are brutal!!!! They'll probably be plenty of these left on clearance at the end of the run.
Is anyone else unimpressed with the Men's clothing line? I like the shoe line, but truthfully the clothing turns me away..
Well, last post of 2012 for me..
I'm probably gonna wait until February to get new vapors.. Volt is one of my favorite colors (I had volt shoes before Nike starting overdoing it )
Hope 2013 turns out well
Nice colorway. If they had that for men with the black and mint inverted, it'd be my favorite version of the v9 yet.
You sure it's women? Cause the Swiss crosses are there...
yes, sharapova and azarenka already have them: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=383334&page=17
Which one's are Azarenka wearing?
TWE has the new RF spring polos (IW/Miami) and they look quite nice, however the price tag is not as nice.
Yeah they look really nice, but I'm not paying $90 for a shirt. The teal Rafa crew looks good, but I don't know if we'll ever see him play in it.
The same as Maria, I believe.
No, Vika's were all white with dark grey swoosh and midsole, no yellow.
Nice color. Not sold on the zipper design. It's a little Euro. Or something. Have to see it on.
Maybe its just me but the Fed grey polo for the Aussie looks really dull in person and matched with the pink on the shirt looks odd.
nike need to get back to the drawing board and perhaps adopt the "quality over quantity" approach
who pays for this crap? i cant believe people get sucked into buy these new colourways
Saw the RF silver polo, rafa's purple and green vneck in person - material is great yet colour combos? I dont get it..
Silver/Black/Pink/White is a very bizarre color combo.
Rafa will wear the Atomic Teal shirt when he returns next month.
Anyone know what Fed's night match outfit is? He's not wearing the same thing for day and night is he?
He is, like the last 4 OZs.
I hope it's the neo turquoise, that is actually a really really nice outfit, however he doesn't really have shoes to match it?? Black pink and white have nothing to do with turquoise.
Also here is a nice pic from TWE.
Edit: according to fed fan the silver outfit is day and night with black shorts and the black and pink shoes. I guess the turquoise will be for after the AO.
Several french online shop sell the blue polo + white short as "day outfit", and grey/pink polo + anthracite short as "night outfit".
Don't know if it's reliable though.
Do you think he should wear black socks or white socks with the outfit? No shoes for the Turqoise polo? What outfit is the black/volt shoes releasing in February for?
Maybe he's gonna wear some custom ID's? He'll prob just wear the same outfit for day/night.
Didn't think of that...
Would be a nice opportunity to promote the V9 iD.
They did it with the 2k11iD last year with Berdych and DelPotro after all.
They said last year that the white polo was his day session shirt. And back in '10 they said that the black polo was his night session...
