Saw that the wimby vapors (grass) is now up at TWE. So excited for the HC version now..
You can get the HC version on the bay, but Im waiting till TW gets them.
I just love the Pink and Black version of this shoe. I know I am in the minority, but had to get a 2nd pair for when the 1st wears out.
when does TW get them? I see them at the auction site but worried about authenticity.
I'm a fan. Have the current blue/green ones but may get some pinks on sale for future use.
I'm going to take a wild guess and say June 1st.
Does anyone know when these have been or will be worn? These look awesome.
They are the limited edition US OPEN 2012 shoes. i prefered the obsidions to be honest
Me too. ^ the obsidians looks heaps times better
^^^^ Me three. Just about worn one pair of obsidians out; 2nd pair in box ready for action. White laces.
Peter Parker would disagree.
Tempted to buy a pair of all white HC vapors on the bay but im worried about authenticity
A question to our fellow TTers/nike insiders..
Do you think RF is really going to wear the white/silver vapors at wimby? It doesnt seem to match his wimby polo.. Thanks
Why don't you wait? they'll be on general sale in less than 3 days.
As for Fed wearing this colorway at Wimbledon, I'd say most likely. These shoes go with anything including his White with Orange polo.
Thanks for this info. I was probably just hoping that there's a surprise colourway coming up soon because this years line isnt that great for me..
You are in luck. I can confirm that another color for fed is coming out. It is totalorange/reflective silver/white. On ndc, it's dubbed as the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 Grass LE (limited edition). It's $140.
Great news! Stupid question, whats ndc? Lol.
Found it sorry!
Too late! If I had known I would have waited. The pair I got cost $119 which seemed a little suspicious, but I think they are fine.
Couldnt find it in the website. When's the official release date?
"total orange" or "electro orange" ?
Fed's Wimby outfit is "white/electro orange" (and the matching premier wristband sold on TW is "white/electro orange" too).
Zoom Vapor 9 Tour Grass LE
White/Reflective Silver-Total Orange
Air Max Courtballistec 4.3 Grass LE
White/Reflective Silver-Total Orange
Do you know how many pairs they will be releasing?
OK, thanks for the details
Will this be an on line sale similar to the "287" shoe?
Then what about the white/silver/black ones that are all over the Bay? Another all white one with orange? And $140??
those will be the neutral ones.
While waiting for the other Grass V9 (the ones with the orange details, which I doubt they will be available in Europe), here the promo edition which was available at TWE:
Now on TWE they have also the clay version
Got my HC vapors today. The "reflective silver" doesn't reflect at all for those 3M fans (myself). Will not be wearing these very often, especially not outdoors. Not only because they're all white, but also because i would wear these out in like a month. Won't take any pics since there are plenty posted already but i will if requested.
it will be available in TW US on July.
Does anyone know if the Zoom Vapor 9 Tour Grass LE will be available through TW?
there is no reflective silver....
How limited of a release will those Wimbledon vapors be? Like Rafa's cotton candy ballistic rare? I would love it if they put the RF and the 7 trophies on it.
I think he's talking about the fall post us open (Shanghai) vapors, the one with blue accents/swoosh
That's why they don't reflect haha. Thought the midsole was reflective but I guess it's just Fed's shoe that will have it?
the midsole is just silver. It's impossible to have a reflective midsole without the paint scraping off.. If something is going to be reflective; I can bet that the dynamic fit part will be reflective.
I've just received these ones, clay promo version.
Thank you Tennis Warehouse for these gems!!
I hope you do better on clay with them than Berdych, Dimitrov, and Federer.
I hope the LE vapors dont disappoint. Still no photos leaked out. Well played Nike!
all-white shoes on clay? dang...
I too, like to live dangerously.
I wish I had more clay courts around me to make investing in clay-soled shoes worthwhile.
Midnight vapors with grass soles look nice.
Does anyone here know the exact width of the toe box in the vapor 9s for a size 12?
Why not try them on?
No where in a 100mi radius that has a pair of size 12 vapor 9s in where i am in australia
You've got to be more precise.
In fact, he has large feet, and wonders which ones fits larger between the Vapors and the GR5. On the other hand, he said he tried Air Max Cages, and they fits too tight, which is why we talked about Babolat's SFX and New Balances.
Are the vapor 8's similar specs to the vapor 9's?
Vapor 8's seemed to fit perfect on me today.
Lukhas did you not catch my edit?
End of year V9s are apparently white with green and red trim. Well, according to the catalogue I looked at yesterday.
They also indicated (but with "photo TBA") the V9 would be used for the Australian Open... If true that dispels another insider theory that the V10 or whatever they move to next was coming this season.
The V9 is an ounce heavier.
