    Saw the catalog. Took a quick shot of the Vapor VI. Sadly the copy I saw, this page was in black and white. In the description it mentioned this will be Federer's shoe. As you can see its got some cool Flywire and I forget, but it might have Lunarlite foam in the forefoot. I know in the catalog there was another high end tennis shoe that retailed for 120, and that had Lunar foam in the forefoot and it also came in like a black/yellowish colorway.

    Vapor IV description and in black. The images are monochromatic, so its not exactly the best representation.

    The Cage is going away and being replaced by if I remember correctly the ballastic or something like that. Still going to have the "uni-tongue" design, but a more "skater" looking shoe from the pics I have seen. Doesn't look bad, just different. I like the pictures of the new vapors more.

    Hope that helps some

    On Tilt EX is correct. From what I remember the other high end Nike tennis shoe is a little skater like. Definitely not Breathe Cage looking. The colorway I saw of it was kind of wonky. From what I remember in terms of cushioning tech, it had Max Air in the heel and Lunar foam in the forefoot. Also there were 2 takedown versions of this shoe too. So theres like the 120 dollar version with all the good technology. Then like an 85 dollar takedown version, and then even a cheaper version which was I think around 70. They all looked pretty similar too.

    There actually is a black version of the Vapor VI. I'll take a better pic of it. Sadly I dont have pics of the clothing as I work in the footwear industry and I only have access to the footwear stuff.

    Ok guys here are the pics of Rafa's next shoe. I guess on 2nd look they are pretty similar to the cages as its got the Dragon stuff. Well Drag On X i should say.

    White/Metallic Silver - Charcoal
    Black/Metallic Silver -Charcoal

    The description is on the first page with the images. Those were the only 2 colorways in the catalog.

    MORE black Vapours? It's like Nike are listening to what people want now.

    one thing of the vapor VI is that the heel could be better. i makes it look a bit less of a tennis shoe. i havent seen a tennis shoe with that.

    NIke air max are ugly also

    Wow - I hope the Breathes are around for a while, 'cause those new Rafa shoes look bad!!!

    The Vapors look ok, but maybe too similar to the IV's. I hope the new technology lives up to the hype...

    So far, I like the Vapor V the best; it's more comfortable on me than the other versions.

    vapor VI looks sick. I hope it is more comfortable then the vapor V though. I currently wear vapor V and it has no comfort at all or any support

    Hmmm... a big letdown after what we've seen from the Cages... taking Rafa into another direction perhaps?

    Nonetheless, much appreciation for staedtler who took the time and effort in posting these... thanks dude.

    I think the design is ok, very old school. I guess it must be lighter than the fifth.
