    I have long been waiting for an "olive green" tennis polo from Nike. I don't think any major tennis brand is carrying that color.

    Fed in dark teal and Nadal in light crimson. No V10s. Lunar Ballistecs men + women. No more air max in ballistecs; full lunar. It will be the gsoat.

    That's all I will say.. please do not email me; because I don't have pics.

    Yup Nadal is in Crimson for the Aussie Open with silver. Crimson Bandana. Grey 7' shorts.

    Federer 9' inch shorts, Grey and metalic for Australia. Interesting design on them. White and metallic for Aussie day it looks like and a dark teal for night. Could be wrong on the day and night thing... two of his shirts are release date 1/1 thats why im guessing that.

    Nadal's kit sounds very similar to what he wore in 2011 at the AO. Hope I'm wrong...

    I far prefer 8" inseam shorts to 12", but while 7" works at the pool, for tennis it's a touch too short for me. I'll be passing on these when they hit the outlets.

    Fed fans; I recommend that you buy every single fed polo coming out within the next 2 years. It's coming..

    Yes it sounds like it in terms of colors but its design is similar to his 2009 Australian open shirts that were wildly popular. Its very similar.

    Light grey and Jade are the two bandanas I believe. The shoes are extremely disappointing though... they awful. The Federer jackets are great though!

    once again, the traditionalist approach in this forum is amazing. Yes, new vapors are nasty. But, performance wise, they fixed some problems that people may of had with the V9s.The lunar ballistecs are amazing though. Most people on the board will hate them; but they will be the most cushioned/softest tennis shoe ever.


    fedzie; I believe those two are for nadal. unless we are talking of different ones.

    Your probably right about the shoes, but do you think people are going to pay $165 for the lunar ballistics?? Vapor 9.5 are a little funky at first glance. The rest of the line I like alot.

    I'm not sure about the bandanas, I just remember seeing red and orange bandanas and assumed those were rafa because that's the color of his shirts?

    probably it might not be US dollar.
    I don't think nike will raise $35. if Nike raise the shoe prices, it might be $140 Max.

    It's a more subtle design. But, as I said; since most people here are traditionalists- y'all are gonna hate them.

    I can also confirm that the new Cbs will be $165.

    Are the other shoes going up in price or just the CBs? If that's true, why only the CB? I will never understand Nike.

    I understand prices going up, but that much of a hike is uncalled for.

    Agreed, but only if the 165 figure represents USD. I'm skeptical on this as it is not competitive with rival manufacturers.

    Guess we gotta start calling them LB'S instead of CBs haha... But dang 165 is a lot for a shoe... Guess there's still 6 month warranty?
    Can u describe the shoe's design a little?

    Is there that much of a difference? The current Vapor 9s are already pretty good only downside is durability. Are they going to raise the price on these to $165 like the LBs?

    I still think that the price won't be $165 USD and will have a warranty.
    I can't remember last year or two years ago catalogue but nike shoes prices were very higher than normal. It turned out that it was not USD and offered 6 month warranty. Raising $35 is too much.

    It's almost the exact same, hence the vapor 9.5. Changed the upper a bit. I'm assuming Tinker didn't design these because it didn't come out as clean as his usual designs.

    Let me double check on LB's...

    EDIT: I once again can confirm that the new LB's will be $165. Although. it's unsure of no more 6mo. warranty because it was not explicitly stated that there was warranty in the description.

    I agree. They've been doing $5 pops on shirts; so $10 on a more expensive product, with the US economy still not great, is more appropriate.

    50/50 on the continuation of the warranty. I could see Nike rolling the dice and removing it.

    I think someone is feeding you bum info. I can't believe Nike has already decided to end the RF line at the end of his career; there will be multiple factors involved in the decision such as sales figures near the end and what type of relation Fed and Nike will have.

    Fed renewed his contract with Nike in 2008 and new contract was 10 year deal so we will see at least 5 more years of fed line. Probably Fed's line might be continued like Jordan brand.

    It is US dollars.
    The Vapors will be $135. Federer jackets are $150 and nadal jacket will be $130 according to the catalog. $20 increase. The shirts stay the same as this year.

    This! You may be true !!
    The line won't stop in two years. Maybe that was just about the lost in QF in RG, which continue to mean the end of Roger for some people ..

    Ok, that's great to know! Was having a hard time knowing which ones were for post AO. I don't think it's orange though; description says like total or light crimson which is the same color he is wearing now.

    Yes you are right about that. I was under the impression crimson was Australian open tho because of 1/1 release date?? Did you see the 2/1 release date shirt? I'm pretty sure that was orange? Might be wrong though :)

    Orange? That was the colour of the accents and shoes Nadal was supposed to wear this year. Light purple like the RG shirt for Federer? I hope it isn't mere recycling, otherwise I am disappointed. Thanks anyway for the informations.

    The purple isn't violet like now.. its somewhere between the that and the bright purple he wore for the world tour finals.

    That's insane... I might have to just buy barricades once the 5.3s come out or stock up in vouchers.

    Tried on the shoe earlier this week at work. Wasn't allowed to take pics. Shoe will be offered in 3 colorways in varying degrees of orange.

    The only thing they can improve performance wise on the Vapor would be to make it more breathable. $165 for the LBs is crazy given how big a jump in price to the current model. They are starting to get into the basketball realm in terms of pricing.
