lots of colourways to hide the fact that these shoes are not really durable
SO many colorways indeed..
My favourites are the very first one, madrid 12, us open 12 night, flame pack, indian wells 13.
Yes, but if you wore a larger size you just stretched them out to your size, which caused durability issues. They would also shrink in the wash.
The shoes may not be as rare as they were supposed to be but the box is
I'm still wondering why all if them didn't come with the special box?
seriously, the worshipping of a box is just pathetic
I am sure you possess something which is pathetic for the others but which is not for you. For me the shoes + the box make it as a collector piece.
I thought collecting shoes was kind of a niche thing, but collecting shoe boxes....
It's probably a good time to get into this while its still underground.
Absolutely. It's not pathetic if it brings you happiness. Very few people in my life understand my penchant for collecting shoes!
The shoes are inside.
I didn't the buy the box alone.
Dont worry,we're always here for you
Sorry I didn't mean to be rude.
I have my Jordan's collection, never actually really cared about the boxes.
Again: those shoes should not be really considered as a collector because he lost badly in 2nd round.
The loser watermark is all over them.
Not a big deal, but thanks anyway.
I don't see these shoes wearing the loser trademark as he didn't wear them in the 2nd round but I do understand people don't see them as collector. For me, they are (especially with the box).
If I havent been drunk through out my whole life, this is for sure not the first time you're acting rude here (F15) mate.
come on give me a break I said I was sorry
Can't we just talk about rare shoe boxes?
Recently picked up this pair of ladies Vapors for my wife...!
These are beautiful !
I would have picked a pair if they were available in Men version
(yes, I love purple)
I have a rather narrow foot, and high arch, and am seriously considering getting some of the women's colorways this year. I have only bought 2 this year that I liked (Wimbledon White and the Volt) compared to 4 this time last year, the men's colors are so odd to match apparel with in 2013 compared to 2012.
I have high hopes that the US Open and ATP finals versions will redeem themselves from these deep swatch samples we've been getting so far.
Anyone have live pics of the new white/navy vapors? I know they are listed as navy but on TW it looks more black
It's "armory navy". Kind of greenish navy color.
C'mon man. You don't have to lie to us. We know you got them for yourself
They would match that purple Fed polo that you put as your avatar (Well the diagram that's on the polo is your avatar).
And obviously the RG pure violet crew too !
Here's a live pic of mine...just very dark navy blue. There's no greenish tint whatsoever, IMHO.
That looks nice. I'm deciding between that or the Wimbledon colorway (silver midsole).
Any idea if the Nikeid prices will go down from $165? I'd like to create my own pair but not for that much
The Slate Red Us Open Vapors are actually fluro in person. Ill post a pick soon.
They are no where near what they look like in the pictures... so much more brighter.
But they look beautiful!
That's what I was told, compared to obsidian: "obsidian" is a blueish navy color, while "armory" is a more greenish navy. I couldn't check that so I trust you since you have the actual shoes.
Anyone having problems with the outsole of the shoe separating from the midsole? I feel this when I slide out wide to my right. The outsole gets squished underneath the shoe and the midsole gets scratched up on the surface of the court. It's happening to the Wimbledon and the French Open colorways of Vapors that I have.
The Armory Navy has no green in it whatsoever, it's actually more of a greyer Navy than the bluer Navy that is obsidian.
Here's a clear shot of the new shoe. I'll take a shot of them next to the Cincinnati version which was obsidian last year which will give you a good example of the color difference.
Thanks for the info, Brittany !
TWE has now updated the image with the right one.
Oh... I was refering to the first time you wrote that, when I said to Doublebounce and Tyler91 it was "greenish"...
I actually read to fast and understood "greener" instead of "greyer"... Sorry guys
Interested what these would look like with a lace color change; maybe a light gray?
Thanks for sharing that pic - haven't seen them in person yet. Very nice looking. Might have to consider them now...
If the rumors for the 2014 prices for the next-gen Fed shoes are true, probably going up.
Oh yes good point, but I was referring to the current 9s they have on their site. I guess they'll just stop offering the Nikeid for V9s.
Saw the catalog today. Lunar ballistec price is $165 and vapor 9.5 price is $135 in the catalog...
When are we officially "allowed" to see this stuff and post pics?
1/1/2014 is my guess??
To clarify, Nike never made any threat. FedererFan07.com has a great working relationship with Nike and Nike tennis. They asked for future catalogs and content to be taken down and I cooperated. Nike requests this with everyone on the internet who posts future gear.
^^^ anyway that's plain stupid: anythig shared on the web shouldnt be taken down for any reason
FedFan07, it's obvious you're a good online citizen.
Seriously looking to buy Women's Russian blue Vapor 9, rep says its only 1/4 inch not as wide as the men's. Anyone tried it?
I have a women's vapor 9. I don't have wide foot or narrow foot (just average).
I wear 7.5 size men and need size 9 for women's. I compare both shoes and length was exact same 7.5 M=9 W. women's vapor is slightly narrower than men's. Actually Women's vapor felt exact right for me.
The V9 I wear are size 11.5, which means I should buy the women's shoes in 12.5 or 13... and that doesn't exist !
Too bad, cause the women colorways are seriously nice !!
So are we going to see the red/grey colorway in August?
Yep. Should be coming very soon. I purchased them saturday at a local tennis shop in NYC. They look better in person. The red is more of a peachy salmon color, if that makes any sense. Oh and the Air Max Cage look awesome in a similar color way.
You need 13. 12.5 might be small. Anyway biggest size is 12 in women's vapor.
Honestly, Women's vapor fits better for me haha.
Still very hard to get good prices on any vapor 9.
Amazing demand!!! Nike should keep this model forever.
Probably aug.1. BTW my local store already has the color though.
Ok. Thanks. I should have checked at my club shop tonight when I was there. They seem to get the new colorways before the online retailers...
I just got a pair of the "atomic red" vapors. If you order online (like me), be warned, they look very cool, but the color should be perhaps called "atomic pink" or "atomic faded florescent red" or "atomic salmon". It is unique and I like that it is different, but not many people will see these in person and say "red". hahaha
Separate names with a comma.
