    They're awfully boring and unlike the 287s, they have nothing special(except for grass sole). Good thing I got a great price on them.

    Actually it's a conversation piece, a sharp looking shoe and will forever be undefeated in its Wimbledon history.

    That's how I see that too. One single match, one victory, the first and unique shoes of a 7 time defending champion. Only played on central court. Probably the unique banned shoes in history. And before all the only shoes that suited his outfit!! (because the white ones he wore in his second match are the same generic shoes as worn by Dimitrov, Berdych and so on...)

    These remind me of the Oreo Vapor 6s.

    ^ Can't wait to get these. Probably my favorite colorway of the year.

    Those are the hard court season Vapors. I got them a month ago. The US Open ones look better. The Oreos ones were black, those are navy.

    latest V9's = loser's shoes
    sorry but it's the sad truth
    What made his shoes awesome was the winning effect, he won those in Paris 09, those in Wimbly12, Oreo's, darth federer, speeds, etc.

    box

    Am I the only guy that got a totally pedestrian box with these orange soled shoes? It's the same box as any regular pair of Nikes. Boooo

    You are not alone. I was wondering the same thing. I saw the picture of the box on the famed auction site.

    That's cause the special box was only for th shops in the UK. Pics of special box are not those people's boxes. They are using the promo pics

    Thanks for the information anhuynh. That would have been tough to acquire a pair from a UK shop for me!

    OMG somebody wants $500 on the Bay for a pair of the LE vapors with the "special" box. Please tell me there is nobody out there who would actually pay that ridiculous price because of a shoe box.

    I am quite sure there will be someone on Earth to pay this price only for the box... sadly.

    For the 287, people would probably pay that much. But these pairs only come with the stock box.

    There is an orange and white box with RF on the top and "VII" on the side, if you got the shoes from a UK Nike store.

    Fed should do the opposite sock combo he did during US Open 2011.
    Black underneath White on top, with Black showing at the tip.

    WOW !!
    Didn't noticed before you write it !!!
    Is this the EU version only ? or an old promo picture that doesn't show the final version ?
    I like it better actually :)

    Yes. I think this is the EU version as a few fellow TTers have posted photos of the vapor 9 that I'm referring to.. :)

    So I ended up picking these up yesterday and won my match in them, so they're keepers for now. You can really tell the color is navy in the sunlight, although it is a greyer navy more than a bluer navy like the obsidian color is.

    This is what I'm talking about! What do you reckon if the laces were navy blue as well?

    Guys, I'm so disappointed ...

    I just received the LE wimbledon shoes.
    I did have some hope, for example that as a "LE", the pair will be nicely done. But I guess I can go to hell ...
    Nike tennis is now doing their shoes as f***ing bad as Jordan do.
    The shoes look quite dirty at some place.
    I just want to cry ... Nike is killing passion more and more every days . I guess I'll focus on Nike basketball ... Brons kobe and kd are still in a "ok" quality ...

    So TW has armory navy foot frame w/ white midsole... TWE has White foot frame w/ dark midsole... A US competitor site has the white foot frame w/ dark midsole as well. Are they going to sell both? One site has exclusivity over the other? Whats up with this. Im torn between the two. Looking for a simple color V9 and this are perfect. Just dont know which one to buy and I dont feel like buying from the Competitor site since i have hadmultiple problems with them, either its with the shipping or other things


    TW will you be selling both versions?

    The image that Tennis Warehouse has is the correct version (armory navy foot frame w/ white midsole). As far as the other version, we believe that was a sample that has since changed so we will not be carrying it.

    Weird that TWE don't have the same picture as you then o_O

    Does TWE decide of the design by their own? or is it Nike that ask them to put this sample pics instead of the real product like TW US ?

    raphMODE,

    TWE normally uses the same picture as us. In this case, they used an image of a sample shoe originally provided by Nike and have yet to upload our new picture.

    Pardon my editing skills but this is how this shoe would look like with black/dark laces. What do you guys think?

    Man, have you ever seen so many colourways for a tennis shoe? I've lost track, there must be 20+.

    I like it, but not black. I think it would look great with armory navy laces. Anyone know where to find them?

    Replacing the laces with armory navy would give the shoes a bit of an aggressive look. Or the white would be just as good :)
