    Is it just me, or did they remove the ventilation window from the 1.5's??!?!?!

    Hope not. That's a good feature of the 1.5

    Nice catch. I'm wondering since it is the "clay" season, perhaps they are doing what they did with the SL Vapor 9s.

    Ahh true, because I guess the window wouldn't be too good for clay <for obvious reasons> :p

    At least I can tell that Wimbledon edition is all white, no green involved.

    Love my LBs. Have the RG 2014 one and the black / pink (USO 2014?) one as well. Hoping to get my USO 2013 soon so I can wear that with the black and pink ones. Unfortunately, I haven't heard anything from my seller on the bay, so I may never receive them...

    Haven't bought any of the new ones yet though. Hoping to get the IW ones at some point.

    Will take unnecessary pictures of my measly collection when I fly back home next week.

    True! since Rafa's all about clay, maybe they should release a clay version of their shoe.

    BTW following up on my earlier posts about them getting rid of the window, I'm pretty sure they have for the clay season. Just looking at pics of Rafa at Monte Carlo, the shoe has no window.

    Nadal's shoes haven't had the window in 2015 since he uses a custom shoe.

    True, true. Well if someone has bought the new LB's can you please post a pic, so we can determine if they have the window or not?? :)

    RAFA's shoe look more substantial, more stuff on it, more heavy and stronger looking than retail version.

    Update* It seems as though the new ones DO have the window - when I just reviewed the pic that I posted of the Teal/Bk/Orange ones, and it appears as if TW updated the images, so it HAS a window. That means that the ones without a window are just samples. If anyone buys the new ones, can they just post a pic so we can determine for sure??

    OK, I hate it. Cushioning sucks on this shoes. Babolat SFX has much more plush and pillow like cushioning. it is not even soft and not even thick.

    You can see he's not even using the flywire. It's just there for show.

    Watching Rublev's match right now. He has the clay sole ballistecs on and they have the window also. I was thinking they might remove the window for the clay soles.

    Anyone know the FA15 colours? There will be a black/hot lava colour way but there should be 2 more colours.
