    Hey guys,
    It is my first thread here!!:p

    Can anyone tell me that the new Nike Vapor 4 is durable? Cause I am thinking of taking one pair recently, I have tried these awesome shoes, they are very comfortable! But I hope the XDR improves the durability!

    Thanks guys!

    But I don't like this color!
    I still prefer the white/silver one!

    They are already available online and in stores. I like the Nike line of shoes and currently wear them, but them seem to be made more to be light versus being durable.

    the blue one is available?
    I don't play much tennis, 3 h per week, and I just hope the vapor 4 can last 5 months!

    I heard that the durability is not that good. But I don't really care about that. I buy a new pair of shoes almost every year. I bought these shoos just a few days ago...

    me too, I have bought them about 1 week ago!
    but I haven't got much time to play with them!
    actually they are so comfortable and fast,especially they are so beautiful shoes!
    Great shoes over all, but still worry about their durability:confused:

    That's pretty good if your shoes last long enough that you only have to buy one pair per year! I think I must buy like 6-8 pairs of shoes every year. :-o

    But if you've already bought them, isn't it a bit too late to worry about their durability? I mean, if they're not durable, what can you do about it now? :confused:

    Those shoes should come with a 6-month outsole warranty, right? If you wear them out, get another pair!

    Nope, no warranty on the Vapors. Never had them on any version.

    if you base it from previous top of the line nike tennis shoes like the vapor and breathe free series, then durability isn't so good.

    I can't comment on the outsole yet, but I have played 10 hrs so far on my new Vapor 4's. The insole is already coming off.

    I really dislike my barricade 4's
