What is the color way dimitrov wear in monte carlo?
it looks nice
I don't think the SL version was nearly as popular as the mesh version. Owning both an SL and a mesh, the SL is very stiff on the toes compared to the mesh and also does not breathe well.
There's a clay Vapor 9 out at the mo which is SL to keep the clay out of the shoe, but every other retail version is mesh this year as far as I've seen.
Fed didn't actually even use SL upper at Wimbledon last year, he was using a mesh upper. The only time he uses SL is on clay surfaces to keep the clay out of his shoes.
Just got these yesterday! Can't wait to play in them tomorrow!
Does anyone have a live pic of the white and orange vapors that came out for IW? Curious to see what they look like.
I do believe those were ID's (if you're referring to the white pair he was wearing in the match against Rafa).
No, they are coming out in June/July...
Well i mean I think they have to be "IDs" because they have clay sole. The ones coming out in june/july have the regular hard court sole. I'm still trying to decide which pair I want to buy (midnight navy/poison green or white/pure platinum.)
Federer and Nadal also have custom, unavailable outsoles. And TW USA won't launch a lot of clay outsole shoes, because of the massive preponderance of HC in America. For example, the orange/grey line of shoes featuring clay outsoles is already available in TWE, and yet to be seen in America.
The colourway of Dimitrov's shoes will be available, but not with clay outsoles IMO.
Like said above, the pros get custom clay kicks....
Wow, just played my first match in these last night. Now I can see what all the fuss is about. These shoes and the Feather IIs are my favorite shoes.
Maybe this is the route for me to go, because it seems I cannot ever claim a 6 month warranty on my Ballistecs. It seems like the cushioning goes before I can get the soles to go.
Has any got pics of the Red vapors Goffin is wearing at the moment?
ID's Im assuming
White lacoste socks+red V9 with yellow laces ===> taste fail
The black midsole .. Yuck. Otherwise they'd be ok in an ugly kind of way.
I am with you on those thoughts.
Yep I tried many many many tennis shoes and Vapor 9s and Feather IIs are also my favorites (also big fan of GR2s too bad GR3 and 4 went away from that comfy low feel).
It's been a good year for tennis shoes.
Everybody says how durability is not good on Vapor 9s but mine are wearing so evenly that I'm getting as much use out of them as much bulkier shoes like barricades, which get worn out in a single spot
it's amazing how conservative this forum is (clothing wise)...
Is it possible that fed will wear the IW vapors at Wimbledon? Not at lot of vapor photos have been released..
I thought about getting something along the lines of what Goffin is wearing above but having the upper the only coloured part and everything else white.
Something like this - maybe with a blue or grey upper would look better.
Probably will get these for BD
I honestly don't think these look bad with the volt sock.
im hoping the aficionados on here can help me. im currently wearing the vapor 8's (i havent played much in the last couple of years!) i wear a size 8 and was wondering if the 9's had change in size at all? is it safe to just stick with a size 8?
Probably 8.5 might better.
I wear size 7.5 for vapor 6 and 9. Size 7 for Vapor 7 and 8.
when does sl vapor come out in usa? I am blowing out my last pair.
I have got both and i strongly suggest you stick with the same size. Once the V9s are broken in after minimal use, its magic!
i have 7, 8 and 9
all are the same sizing.
9 slightly more narrower (very slight and will flex due to the design of the shoe/laces are tighter to begin with)
go with the same size.
thank you very much for the advice. i ordered half a size bigger and im now frantically trying to change the size to an 8!!
on a site which is direct about sport they have 2 new colors up for pre order
Thanks for the info mate not diggin it though
:O the red ones!
You like them ??? i just dont think they mix well
These are the Fall 13 RF shoes or more of a variation of what we saw in the catalog. Diggin' both of them.
My eyes hurt after looking those up. Those vapors are ug-ly. Might be time to stock up on current color ways.
I would love to buy new vapor 9s before the 10s come out however due the colours this year, Im starting to feel hopeless. Has anyone bought the IW colourway? Mind posting some photos? Im 50/50 with this one at this stage..
Does anyone know what the US Open colorway will be? And also how does this shoe compare to the Gel Solution Speed
read the posts above... its red and navyish.
I have both shoes and I prefer the Vapor 9s since they are a bit more plush. The speed solution is the lightest and fastest shoe but they are a bit more narrow and my feet feel a bit sore if I use them for more than an hour on the court.
The best color so far to date for me are the navy/green and clay court version.
Where do you navigate on their site to see pre-orders? I only see the current models.
+1 - buy what you like because you never know if Nike will have anything you like as much. I'm finishing off my '12 USO obsidians/reds (about 7 months of 2-3 times a week on court); then will pull out the 2nd copy of that colorway. Also still have the original AO white/red/volts - but mostly wear those around town.
Speaking of around town, saw a guy yesterday wearing all black and working the black/pink V9's - he looked to be about 55. Good for him.
I guess cuz most people prefer the mesh because the synthetic leather traps too much heat in the toes of the shoes... I do prefer SL for clay though so I'm glad they came out with an SL+clayoutsole on this year!
^i love that guy. Navy/green, pinks, and the simpler IW color way are all so much better than those USO atrocities. I'm shuttering thinking about Fed wearing those at Ashe.
What? Those were great!
I mean the weird red/grey looking kid shoes Fed is supposedly wearing at USO 13, not last year's Obsidians. Obsidians were great.
So the red and navy and the white with the black siding will be out around Aug?
He is wearing the red/navy ones for the uso. think you're getting them confused with the pre-WTF ones.
Ah, so not the red/gray (at least it looks very gray to me) that's on that direct site? Are the USOs essentially the same shoe with navy instead of gray?
You're shuttering? Is there a storm coming or something?
you're correct haha. in the catalog, they look navy. But, description says anthracite.
Yes indeed: an ugly storm, the winds fierce.
(Nice catch though)
I'm digging the red and grey v9 and CB4.3. I'll be buying both, probably. IMO, these are better looking than the volt/white and white/orange v9's.
digging the black laces. Look waaaaay better IMO.
I don't think anything would make those Volt shoes look any better, except maybe painting the whole thing black.
