    The new catalogue should say Vapor 9.5. And, there should be two CWs.

    I don't think they are Vapors, but Babolat since they signed a new partnership for shoes. It concerns the SFX and the Drive 3. Or maybe you are talking about something else? Then I don't know, since IIRC, all Nike's Wimby shoes show the same pattern: white, green and silver. I thought there would be one with orange swoosh for Federer to accommodate his outfit, but it seems it won't be the case.

    There was briefly a LE Vapor in orange and platinum up on the nike releases page, but it's since been taken down

    Post #366 was what I was referring to.

    anhuynh16 said...

    "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."

    And in post #371 he gave some product number and possible release date of 6.24.

    Anyway, just wondering.

    And we wait...

    I was sure I had seen one with silver midsole and orange swoosh... Guess I can't find it.

    That could very well be it. Not sure though. It does look like his wimbledon kit. I guess we will find out in less than a week!

    I contacted someone from Nike and they gave me a link to the page that the grass LEs would be for sale on as well as the time and date that they'll be going on sale, so yes, I can confirm that there IS a limited edition pair of Vapor 9s coming for Wimbledon.

    I saw a pair yesterday I had never seen before. I think they are the US Open ones, they are white with either Black or Navy on the adaptive support system. They look like the white/blue SL version he wore at Madrid last year, but where the blue was it is now black/navy (had a hard time telling which one it was). I didn't have my phone with me so no picture, but I'll swing by and get a shot of them today.

    I got the link directly from Nike via a confirmed twitter account. I'm preeeetty sure its right. I guess we will find out next week though.

    As far as specs, I am completely in the dark. Outside of the reported colors and price, I don't know what kind of soles they are, or how many they are releasing or anything else.

    I saw a picture of the man himself hitting today and looked like he was wearing the white/silver version

    EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCeUkOn12jY
    Looking very white, no orange, and for that matter, not much silver either by the looks of it

    Why so secretive lol... Link? Was it from the NDC twitter?

    My best guess is that they said they had no info on it; so they gave you a link to the current selection of Vapor 9s. I could be wrong though.

    Dave: You saw either the pre USO pair or the day USO- not sure when he will wear those.

    If the swoosh is grey, it's indeed one of his USO shoes given what you write.

    Someone's posted a live photo of these shoes early this week. I will get them no doubt since the v9. 5 design very unappealing..

    I'm glad I used my voucher on the current blue/green colorway. Not entirely thrilled with the two offerings shown in that link.

    Nike shoes are made under a tender process so different colourways throughout the season are often made in different locations.

    I just bought two pairs of the French Open colourway from TW last week and they're definitely smaller than the other three retail pairs I own from last season. They're still wearable but even holding them next to each other you can see the soles aren't quite the same length/width etc.

    So, to answer your question: you're probably right.

    Rafa's short on Nike.com is "armory navy / light armory blue".
    Colors are similar to the CB's, so I guess that's it.

    About the Vapors, I guess it's "armory navy" too but the swoosh seems different. Could be "dusty grey" as this color is part of the fall line.

    Thanks for the pics anyway :)

    Not very helpful in an era of internet shopping where the accent should be on the consistency of the product so returns are a non issue.

    The box also says "Stadium Grey"...I'm guessing that's the swoosh color.

    Aha. In theory they should be the same - the patterns are the same and the instructions are the same. Welcome to the world of textile manufacturing.

    My local shop also had the US Open V9. I would post the pictures, but I know they will get nuked. They are cool, they look like an oreo V6, though the fitframe is a bit too shiny for me.

    Curious as to why Nike removed the date on the releases calendar though.

    ^There's a primarily black with red outsole and vent, and with a grey/white swoosh one. Like there's a red and black cage with grey swoosh V9.

    Nike saw Federer's Wimbleon draw and decided it wasn't worth it.
