    So you're saying he's wearing RG shoes with a winter outfit?

    Cool, everyone has their own interpretation. :p

    I don't understand why mods deleted the photo.

    That photo is readily available on the internet, is going to be the main photo used by ATP's advertising campaign WELL BEFORE the range is launched + there is probably an ATP uncovered Indian Wells photoshoot video featuring Federer somewhere too.

    I was bored yesterday and inspired by your shoes with customization directions.
    I found some leftover materials at home then made my version of RF shoes ^_^
    I realized that vapor 9 shoes is very easy to customize with vinly film and heat transfer paper.

    As usual, Feds customs at IW look much better than the retails.

    I like this colorway

    This reminds me of the first pair of 2.3s I had. Fun stuff!

    I disagree. They could've been done it so much better... didn't like that degradé that they choose.

    I've got the retail version of IW Vapors and they look really nice, I personally don't like the fade that they put on his vents. 1st pair of Vapors that I bought, hopefully won't regret.

    I have vinyl cutters so it was not hard to make it but without the cutter, might need more time. material was just regular decal vinyl film and used heat transfer paper for the shoes tongue.

    Just to update anyone who cares. I ordered my custom shoes on February 1st and they just shipped, with an arrival date of March 19th: 47 days after I placed the order.

    Never again.

    Hey Kim, is there any chance for you to share the templates you are using for this customization(s). I am mainly interested in the foot frame logo.

    Thanx in advance.

    I made the logos through the cutting machine company's software.
    I have images in jpg but honestly it will not really help.
    if you want those images, send me a message.

    Great job. I've been planning to create the 'RF' on the side - just don't have the time. Going to be tough for me - no artistic skills - to cut something that small. Think I'll call the hospital and have them pull a few pints of my blood type to have ready to load... :)

    Its pretty easy to do. Just copy the logo into word, print off, stick some masking tape on a piece of glass/mirror, stick the logo onto the tape and cut. I used the same technique on these non-V9T shoes.

    Can you compare this "midnight navy" color to the "obsidian" (uso12 V9) color ?
    Thanks...

    owning both, i would say these are lighter and have more of a blue/purple tinge to them

    And the countdown begins for the Wimbledon release, so I can hunt these down the French Open release for off-season price. :twisted:

    You stole my question. I wondered if that is black or blue. Why don't they just make these black? The US Open shoe was awesome, but looks goofy with black socks. I have a feeling the same will be true with these.

    Don't know what to think about those newbies. Agree they'd probably look sick with black instead of the navy.

    Yes. There is a clay version that is stadium grey/white/total crimson. There is also the white/pure platinum/court green/black, however I'm not sure of the timeline for when all of these will be released.
