    Since the first thread was closed, I've decided to open up a new one. Please, no pick-up offers or anything like that. Is anybody at the Nike Booth at the US Open? Any info on the tennis socks?

    I'm pretty sure they were not PE socks. I'm just happy I'll be getting my wristbands soon :)

    it happens man... people new to the forum don't know the rules thoroughly yet I guess... oh well glad someone started a new one!
    so based on the previous thread.. the only exclusives will be the wristbands and the spiderman v9? man I was hoping to pick up some exclusives.... and those v9's will probably end up at TW at the end anyway... nothing like the epic 2010 with rafa's glow in the dark GSOAT cb2.3's and roger's skyline vapors..

    I'm so happy I had someone get me the wristbands this year. Last year I payed a ludicrous amount of money on the bay for them. Never again.

    Also just a quick question, I noticed some of the shirts say "exclusive" however most of the shirts I want aren't. I noticed that some of the ones that arent exclusive are not on TW or Nike.com, so where can we find them? For example, the advantage Federer shirt, and the Drifit NYC tennis in short sleeve, nike only has the long sleeve...

    I think you misunderstood me. There are shirts that aren't exclusive, however they are not on TW or Nike yet. I hope they are soon, these are some really great shirts.

    why would they sell soccer socks at the us open... u sure they're not the volt socks that everyone wanted earlier this year?
    as for the exclusiveness, I think nike puts them up eventually on their website... otherwise even though they're not labeled exclusive, it's exclusive.. the exclusive label is probably just to get people to want to buy it more (worked on me anyway)

    i honestly dont know. these are thinner.

    the volt socks that were sold beginning last year were nike pro compression socks. basically a dri fit sock with elite arch cushion.

    They either are soccer socks or the new compression socks, but those arent the elite volts for sure

    ^^^^^the only hats they have are for the youth"Vamos Rafa " an rf visor and essentially that's it. Other than that, the Nike store was unempressive and uneventful

    These soccer socks I held in my hands yesterday in the booth will change the way the game of tennis is played and dissected amongst Internet tennis speculators.

    Lacko is sort of a clown for losing to Blake but his DiaDora was EPICK.

    Does "exclusive" in 2012 means made in 2008 but didnt sell very well?

    Agreed, JD. Lacko looked like a tennis pro, JBlock looked like a public links hacker golfer. I want somma those kangaroo Diadora shoes, made from the skin of the kangaroo pouch.

    I would GOAT Lacko if I met him at a party and steal his Dia Dora gear as he sleeps peacefully in his midtown hotel room.

    Yeah, Diadora was looking good on their only sponsored player. I got soaked during that rain delay! Picked up some obsidian wristbands but that's about all that was decent.

    Maybe 'exclusive' means 'retro' in French. Or 2008 is the year that Nike beat out Apple for the patent on socks...

    @Joel D, Phil Knight called. He's very upset that you aren't being faithful to Nike. He said Diadora shirt will do terrible things to your skin.

    Red kangaroo skin shoes, made from the pouch of the mommy kangaroo, soft as a baby's bottom. Where can I get some?

    Nike added more US Open shirts to their online shop. Definitely getting the advantage Federer tee.

    I got one of the exclusive NYC vapor 9s. I don't usually wear vapors because I wear them out too fast but everytime I go to NYC I get the exlusives (I also have the 2010 vapor 7s). They look pretty cool IMO, and better than the normal ones. I also have the blue uniqlo djokovic polo and it matches the shoes pretty good.
