    I think the older thread got deleted, and there isn't any true Vapor 9 thread..

    So, we have the pink ones and in February, the VOLT ones. Which I am extremely excited for :)

    I'll never know why these threads get deleted. Practically the only people who even care about upcoming colour schemes of tennis shoes have posted here and know where to find pictures.

    Anyway, I quite like the pink/black outfit, although I doubt I'll get a pair of the vapors this time, I already have four pairs of previous colours.

    Google. Posting pic's and email addresses asking for pic's is why the last thread got deleted. Don't worry, they're hideous anyway.

    Ya, I believe volt for IW and orange for Miami.

    I think the black/pink's will be the first vapor 9's to hit the outlet's in large numbers.

    Did anyone else find they needed to go down a half size with these?

    I wear a size 10 for all the courtballistecs and barricades, but the 10 for me in these vapors seem too long.

    Not very keen of the vapors this season. They need more BLACK, imo.

    I really love the black/pink ones. Also the volt ones. I personally will be purchasing both. Nike has been real unique with the color schemes this year which I really like. I'm just glad to see them mixing it up.

    Looks like the mod's didn't like.

    On another note the 2 women's vapor 9's currently on TW look great.

    I thought the pink ones are the AO ones? The volt ones are women's?

    Is there a real differnce between men's V9 and women's models by the way ? (in matter of shape, finition)
    If I buy a women size 11, will it be excatly like a men size 11 or narrower/shorter?

    You gotta size up by 1.5 so If your a 9.5 get a 11 (which is pretty much max in women's size). I've done it before and was certainly thinking about it with these. Might be a touch on the narrow side? You'd have to try em on to see.

    ^^^^^ (Volt V9s on Tomic) - I don't get it - why aren't the inserts white? There's no contrast.

    Flyknits>Volt Vapor 9s.

    [​IMG]

    If they didn't have to ruin it with that ugly black midsole, the volt vapors 9s would of been a top 3 vapor 9 colorway...

    Replace all the white with Black and I think it would look better IMHO. A little too bold for my liking.

    Yup. Flyknit's look a lot better. I don't understand the white tongue and heel on those Vapor's? Just doesn't look right.

    As much as I would like for them to, I just can't get connect with these shoes. I like a lot of the colors, and the concept of a low to the court yet cushioned shoe, but they just don't feel right on my feet. I wear an 11 or 11.5 depends on the shoe, but 11 feels too short and 11.5 is too loose. Sticking with my Yonex 308 as my best fitting, most comfortable, best performance shoes.

    It's too bad that the customization is extremely limited. Good luck getting that green on the mid-sole/Nike Zoom area.

    ^^^^ I have no desire for any green.

    There are enough choices.

    The gray ones @BobbyJr designed are very nice - if the gray is dark enough and won't get dirty that will be the basis of my next ones.

    I ordered pair of shoes from there earlier this month. It was almost as fast as some state to state shipping. They send it FedEx. It was like 7 days from time I placed order to my door here in Florida.

    At check out you select country. It converts for you. There is a foreign transaction fee however.
