The purple/orange looks great!
Is it just me, or did they remove the ventilation window from the 1.5's??!?!?!
^^ look at these
These 1.5 LB's have window vents,
Whereas the new ones don't??!?!
Hope not. That's a good feature of the 1.5
I think they are sample pics.
Does that mean that the actual ones will have window vents? and yeah thanks for your input
I am pretty sure, yes.
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>
Damn, I will try to upload the image as soon as possible
At least I can tell that Wimbledon edition is all white, no green involved.
Image not showing? at least for me??
Next time I think I will just paste the web link address on it.
Yeah probably bad luck though
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.
my question is.....when will nike sell a clay version?
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.
JUST got the Brand new pair of Lunar Ballistecs. I am Digging it. Surprised to see how Thick the Cushioning is right out of the box..................I have to test it out tomorrow.............
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.
which window you mean?
Go to page 18; picture in @PureDrive573's post...
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.
I am wondering, where's the "window"?
I find that so amazing
Anyone know the FA15 colours? There will be a black/hot lava colour way but there should be 2 more colours.
I saw Ryan Harrison with a special edition of the Lunar Ballistec in blue i can't find them to buy ! The colors are really great ! Do you know if we can find them on store ?
Player Edition. You *MAY* find a few pairs floating on the fleabay at some point but they were not and will not be a retail release
My 2 cents:
- Best shoe atm, maybe even ever (especially for hardcourts).
- Maybe the sole durability got worse with 1.5 vs 1.0 any general consensus on that?
- Don't pay more then say USD90 shipped- although this price is harder to find anymore, since they introduced the ....USD200 version, like USD165 wasn't already prohibitive?!!!
i did notice the sole durability being worse on my 1.5s than the single 1.0 that i had, but one shoe is hardly a consensus.
Best deal going for tennis shoes is previous seasons color for $90-99 then getting a $165 voucher after 4-5 months. No way id pay $165 for this shoe.
I suggest you check out your local outlets and discount stores. I've found ballistecs for under $60 for my last three pairs or so. Takes a bit, but it's worth it.
yea i go to the local nike clearance store. never in my size.
Lunar Ballistec ends in 2017.
They realized how ugly it is?
Hopefully they reintroduce air or zoom air in the heel. Not a big fan of the lunar in the heel.
It's all about the AIR MAX!!!
Don't know the exact details, all I know is that Nike plan on phasing out the Ballistec model.
So Rafa can use a new shoe instead of using covered CB 4.3.
Or can use a new cover for his CB 4.3.
Maybe when the LBs go away, Kyrgios gets his own shoe????
It took them a while!
Someone inside Nike confirmed me that AO 2017 will be the last line in Nike for Rafael Nadal
Shouldn't he, uh, win something first?
Probably. But might not matter. Nike loves the rebels who appeal to kids - and I doubt kids care.
That's on the assumption that Rafa's contract isn't renewed, I'm guessing?
That would be a shame, because Rafa's kits have been some of the best over the last few years...
