Any word on these supposed Limited Edition vapors for wimbledon?
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.
"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...
^You mean this? I had seen some Vapors with orange swoosh on promo pictures for sure too. But we don't know as of now.
EDIT: Found it.
^ Those were his Indian Wells shoes I think
I was sure I had seen one with silver midsole and orange swoosh... Guess I can't find it.
Did nike release an actual photo?
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.
Those look like:
BNP Paribas 2013.
Wanna share the link? ;-)
How limited are we talking? 287 limited? Surely not. Ate they going to be grass outsoles? Will this link be common knowledge soon via an announce my from nike?
Man I botched the spelling in that last post. Ha. That's what I get for late night typing on my phone.
Um are you sure they gave you a link? I've never heard that before.
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.
^ Sounds like one of his US open shoes
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
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.
I just got my wimby V9s and it feels half size bigger. Has anyone noticed this? I have 6 pairs and ive noticed this difference right out if the box..
Nope; got mine and I had 11 pairs of these. They were perfect on the get go.. To bad I ruined them yesterday on red clay
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.
Yeah. Would be great if you get the consistent glove fit.. Might have to wear 2 really thick socks
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.
Where are you seeing these and buying these? What stores? I'm lucky to see a blurry picture. Haha
Unfortunately Australia wont be getting that colourway. We would get the red one early July as advised by Nike Australia..
They were at our club's pro shop yesterday (Indianapolis). The 4.3 looked awesome.
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.
These are the USO Vapors indeed.
Yep, could be
Now available in ndc uk along with rf polos
Tomorrow morning, Limited Edition Vapors go on sale. I'll post the link I got.
What time? What price? and link pls :3
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.
What colors are they? Black and white?
So they are grey and what colors?
^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.
So are the limiteds a no-go?
Nike saw Federer's Wimbleon draw and decided it wasn't worth it.
There arent going to be limited editon vapors?
We'll soon find out when he comes out of the court in less than an hour..
Nothing on Nike.com.
This sounds like another 'someone heard something at their local pro shop.' Like the @zapvor 'Fed switching to 95" racket thread'...
