    ^^^I agree. Saw them tonight at my local club's shop. I think salmon is a good description but maybe a little less orange, more pink. They didn't grab me. I wish they were gym red or similar.

    The 4.3 is more grey with atomic red accents...they look better, IMO.

    I'm pretty sure most pairs have some irregularity between each individual shoe.

    I think the same :
    Just checked mine (4 pairs) and none of the left feet are exactly similar to the right ones. The differences are barely noticable though, it's not as important as yours.

    My lastest acquisition boys

    $104 on the bay with free shipping and I've got some kicks for the Southern California clay courts

    Notice the synthetic leather details that differ from the retail black/volt V9

    Very lucky find, this is the first time I have come across this colorway in my size or anywhere

    ^It's because you have the clay outsole. The clay version has synthetic leather on the upper instead of mesh.

    Wanna hear something weird. The factories who make shoes generally don't make them in pairs at the same time. They make all the left shoes of a batch and then retool and make the right shoes, maybe days or weeks later, and then match pairs up.

    It makes production much more fluid. Sometimes you can tell how far apart they are made by the dates in the label on the tongue which has the bar code which tracks the whole production process. That tag is the first part of each shoe's fabrication process.

    Anyone have any issues with em? I loved em but then pulled a calf wearing them so I am going back to my cb's. very comfy but now I'm scared of em (weird that way).
    My barely worn 10.5s are in the classifieds if anyone's looking for some.

    There will be 2 new colorways for the Holiday season : One for Shanghai/Basel/Paris, and one for the WTF.
    No matter if Federer play the WTF or not, Nike will release the shoes anyway. don't worry ;)

    Only saw a bad instagram picture, which don't really show the colors well.
    But "basically" :
    - First one has an all white body (heel, midsole, outsole, laces, tongue, vents, mesh) with dark blue "fingers", dark blue footframe, and red swoosh
    Really similar to the pre-USO shoes, but with red swoosh.
    - Second one has a light grey body (kind of dirty white) with blue fingers, blue footframe, and bright "icy" blue swoosh.

    Yeah. Simple colorway. Goes with about everything in my wardrobe. Much more than my Polarized Pink Vapors...

    That's what I'm thinking. And the white isn't that bad to maintain - I still have a pair of the orig AO white/red/volt and with some antibacterial soap and a toothbrush I can clean them up and they look fine.

    Mesh durability. I made two holes where the shoe creases when you walk/run way before going through the outsole. Outsole durability is actually better than the 4.3 surprisingly.

    Exactly! Mesh durability is crucial. I made holes in it in 3 months playing 4 times a week.

    Haha those are the "NIKE Men`s Free Trainer 5.0 Shoe" in yellow and blue. I actually have them and they are very comfortable. Without a doubt the most comfortable sports shoes I have ever worn. Don't try to play tennis with them though, they wear out in a hour.

    The black and white is okay, the red is hideous. 2013 and 2014 Aussie Open vapors were/will be disappointing. Not a good way to start off the year Nike
