    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.

    I'm a fan. Have the current blue/green ones but may get some pinks on sale for future use.

    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.

    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.

    "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).

    Hello anhuynh

    Thanks

    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:

    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.

    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.

    Very nice.

    I hope you do better on clay with them than Berdych, Dimitrov, and Federer. :)

    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.

    You've got to be more precise.

    It's here:
    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=466175

    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.

    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.
