    "11/06/12 Zoom Vapor 9 Tour iD Customize with NIKEiD $165 NIKEiD"

    Too bad they only last like 3 weeks..

    :evil: I know, I don't need clay/grass Vapor now, but I think I will in the future. :(

    A little expensive but slightly better than 2k11 or 2k12.
    It seems that vapor 9 is one of the most popular shoes nowadays because very hard to find heavy discount price on vapor 9.
    Wondering what colors nike will offer.

    They last me more than 3 weeks so with that out of the picture, I'm going to love this! Can't wait, if true!

    That's because Nike finally made a shoe like their old Vapor 6 offering everything the Vapor 6 does but with better cushioning and no break in required. The only downside is the horrible durability but I guess I can live with it considering I have been looking for a shoe that reminds me of the Vapor 6s.

    I love this ... I stocked up on Vapor 9s (of course I have access to the Nike Employee store ;) ... Just in case they got it wrong for the 10s ... I really hope tinker stays on that project.

    I will by a pair of two ID'd ... I use Barricade 7s as a training shoe, Vapor 9s as a match day shoe....

    Excited to make some cool ones but won't be buying them for that much! They wear out too quickly. Why don't they just offer the Ballistecs? Even if they don't come with warranty they would sell very well because of how much longer they last over vapors

    Does anyone know if Nike is going to have iD available for the 4.3's?

    !

    Hi,
    I just contacted Nike and they said the CB 4.3 will follow after and will be available and good news, the colour 301 which was the glow in the dark colour for Rafa in USO 2010 Will be available for both as well. Great from NIke. Seems like they finally read my mail. WOuld love to be able to customize 2.3's as well and another good news.
    Roger's and Rafa's Logo's will be available to add at the back of the shoes.
    Vamos indeed.
    I only need 1 pair but am afraid I won't get a chance anymore.
    I'm so happy.
    Hopefully Nike will redo this again in the future, SOON!

    I'm good on paying $78 on the general release of the vapors. Nike ID can stick it in their ear with that $165 sans the tax!:roll:

    Also, you have a bunch of dudes stating the worst colors of the Vapors, wait till you see peoples incarnation of the versions of their Vapors. It'll be a hundreds times worse and clownish. They don't realize that people at Nike that make up the colorways are professionals in the colors chosen.

    Hi Guys, don't know why my previouse post got deleted.
    Nike will make ID's for 4.3 CB as well, I just contacted them, They will follow the vapors soon. A new colour will be available, 301, the same colour of Rafa's Glow in the Dark shoes in 2010 USO. You will also be able to add Rafa's and Rog's logo to the shoes as well instead of your name. For the rest they will probably have the same colour as the ID 2k's/
    Hope this helped.
    I just asked the guy whehter I could make 2.3's as well and though not being accurate, he said it wasn't out of the world. I'm very happy for what Nike did and really, hoping for 2.3 edit as well.
    Vamos!

    What would be cool with these at iD is if they offered some patterns instead of only block colours.

    Regardless... I'll be gunning for something like this:

    But would love something like this:

    Whether or not I can make the colorway of my dreams, it is ridiculous to pay $165 for a pair of shoes that dies under heavy use within a month.

    This! I'll buy some Nike stock instead, their margins must be pretty good.

    I'm looking for a good clay court shoe but that mesh would be a disaster with clay and the mesh/comfort is my only reason for buying vapor 9's.

    Agree about the design process. I have tried to make my own shoes on nike multiple times and I'm pretty awful at it. I can just never get it right. However, don't people usually vote on top designs? Usually the top designs for most of the nikeID shoes are very well done, so I'm not worried. I'm curious to see how many color combinations there will be.

    I'm excited. I don't like the price, but considering that in my opinion (aka I don't care what yours is), most of the colorways that have come out so far have sucked, it's worth it to me to get a pair. I like simple style in my shoes, so one main color with one accent is usually what I prefer. I got the Black and Red vapors and the light blue/white ones, this time I'll probably just get a simple black/white pair.

    The white swoosh instead of the gold is killer. Really pops.

    Haha maybe. But I wasn't going for a gold outsole like the 287.
    I was wondering what it would be like if NIKEid had gum outsoles as an option for a purely aesthetic reason, going off of what another poster said about having a simple black and white colorway. Perhaps even quicker wear. Here's what gum outsoles are if you aren't familiar.

    I'm owed a pair of id's, so will probably get a pair as I didn't get on with the 2k11's.

    i'd like to know too. the bay sells some for around that price, if you wear a curious size, like 6 or 14.

    sometimes you'll get lucky and find the one you want in your size.

    i found a site selling vapor 9s for around $50. i bought a pair. they sent me a sponge.

    Twitted to @NikeTennis regarding this and this is what they answered.


    @niketennis: To me: not true. Stay tuned for more cool things to come with the ZV9T

    Hmmm...

    So there isn't going to be a Vapor 9 ID? It would have been a good chance for Nike to make a ridiculous profit off the line, because they are far more popular than the Breathe Cages(or whatever they are called now...).

    There goes my red vapors....
