    unfortunately you are correct; the realm of basketball is exactly where they want to go.

    they're not really that different compared to the current vapors. It's literally the exact same thing actually. Except for more changes that make it look more like a one-piece upper.

    So are they Vapor 10? Or are they Vapor 9 version 3?

    (Version 2 being this year's with the two toned colored upper).

    Not so bad, because I never buy the jackets anyway, and just wait for the shoes to drop to around 100 bucks.

    Welcome back once again :)

    Anyone know if Nadal is wearing the same shorts for AO and post-AO, sounds like that might be the case based on the colours of his shirts? And are Fed's shirts polos or crews?

    I believe it is a lightish mintish green.

    Is night factor the red, or the color that appears black on the LB? I know one of them is a tonal crimson.

    Yup in the power uv polo. Also a baseline polo has jade as the collar color, it's really nice.

    Nope the description is dark mica green for his shorts

    Thanks for the info! What colour is the baseline polo with the jade collar?

    Also what's the deal with the mica green? Is Rafa wearing mica green shorts with turf orange?

    One last question any mica green shirts?

    Thanks mate!

    It will be night factor. Do u remember fed shirt for 2009 us open? That's the exact same design.

    Mica green is an odd one... To me it looks alot like grey. Yes it's with the orange if you go along with the release dates.

    I'm not entirely sure.... I don't remember seeing one but it's tough to remember. Il go back and look over it again :)

    So Fed's "Night Factor" shirt has the jade collar? Cool.

    What do the athlete power crews look like? (Tomic, Dimitrov etc) and what are the colours of the line?

    no, feds shirt has a what appears as a very thin striping around the color. The shirt is 98% night factor; very little green.

    The baseline polo has jade color not fed. I was just saying the baseline polo has the same design as fed shirt from us open 2009.

    The thin trim around the nightfactor collar for fed is red. Hence the red jacket and vapors

    Oh I see. So red jacket and jade bandana for Fed?

    Also is Night Factor the same real as Jacksonville Jags or a darker shade?

    One last question... Do the athlete power crews look good?

    Thanks guys.

    Red jacket for Fed... Yeah Jade Bandana but also a grey is somewhere there in the mix.. who knows how he will use it? I don't see athlete power crews? The other shirts are pretty cool.. some better than others.

    I don't understand why people don't just like their emails to their usernames and have others message them the photos rather than just posting your email so everyone can see it.

    And if anyone would like to message me the photos, I'd really appreciate it.

    This happens every time. All someone has to do is upload the pics to another site, for instance a facebook page, and just tell everyone where to go or what to search for in google.
    That way you aren't breaking any rules here because you aren't posting pics or posting a link. It's really not that hard.

    Part of the charm of the shoe though was the detaling and the vents and heel, being able to break up the shoe with different colours in different places....it looks like virtually the whole upper of the new one will have to be one solid colour, and then some 'graphics' which on that shoe looks like something designed for a child :(

    Patience, I'm sure we'll all like the V9.5 when more cool colorways appear (as usual) and when we'll see the real stuff and not a nike 3D promo pics which are maybe not the final version (as usual).

    ahhh the initial reactions make me chuckle. when the first pics of the vapor 9 were released i remember everyone saying they would never wear such "clown shoes" yet now they are widely considered some of the best tennis shoes ever

    Haha, to be fair I did hate the V9's when I first saw the promo pics! And now i love them. I can't help but feel the shoe looks a little bland now though, and graphics always seem like a cheap alternative to actual shoe design. We shall see!

    see this is an instance where i don't want actual shoes design. I'm a huge fan of what Tinker has done with the Vapor 9 so if nike just wants to update graphics that is more than fine by me. it gives me a new look with tried and tested performance. will it be to everyones taste probably not but i rather have a pair of shoes out with polarizing style than the crap fest that was the vapor 7 and 8

    Well, there's only one Tinker Hatfield... And he indeed did a great job with the V9s in particular.

    cut material costs + increase retail rrp/selling price = nike fail...
    consumers wont buy into it...

    v10 just look like the kids version of the adult shoe (remember how rafa's courtballistic in child sizes didnt have an air pocket etc)

    v9 were great/great colorways (yes i like volt :D)/obsidian/red was the best... v9.5 not sure about the heel being a different color
    but both will be much better than the v10 thats shown here...

    gg nike...

    C'mon it is almost July and no pics on the web ?
    Anyone can post pics in the niketalk forum ? :)

    Same for me, did hate the V9 at first and then Loved them a lot. It's always the same with new shoe, look weird at first, then they bring some amazing colorways and it's in ...

    whatever nike ends up calling the 2014 vapors doesnt make my opinion any different :)

    pray that these are like the vapor club version...

    That's called progress. Companies are always looking for methods to reduce costs. You're paying for the Nike brand and some of Fed/Nadal's endorsement deals. Otherwise, you'd get a shiny new pair of V9's and change from a $10. Not happening.

    I believe that is for Nadal - looks way too showy for Fed - but maybe not.

    Yes, he is The Man.

    Got to see AO's gear for Fedal on the internet... Damn Federer was right:
    http://greginhollywood.com/roger-fe...-pirate-pants-and-the-sleeveless-shirts-28239

    Now they're almost carbon copies. At USO13, the shoes have the same colourway, now at AO14 they almost have the same colours. Grey shorts for both. White polo for day and black polo for night for Federer, red jacket. Red and black t-shirt for Nadal. Mainly red, chest is black with a grey band separating the chest area from the stomach area.

    Bring back pirate shorts and sleeveless tops for Nadal please.
