    Yea, the latest Vapor colors looked kind of ugly to me. Sorry to the fans.

    It's whatever, just have to stock up when there are good colors. The red from AO are still some of the coolest shoes I've had.

    I saw the April V9.5 yesterday. Per my sketchy memory, the upper and tongue are light grey - similar to the dusty grey from AO. The swoosh and laces are baby blue, and there's a bit of volt accent on the bottom sole and maybe on the midsole, too. The colorway didn't grab me, so I bought the orange/black ones instead.

    Bright blue upper with yellow & orange accents. White mid sole.

    I'm not big on changing laces, but think the April V9.5 might look a LOT better with a navy lace. Or maybe even volt laces. Those baby blues look like they belong on a women's feet.

    this new colorway, the one after - for the french open and maybe the wimbledon ones I'm going to buy, but all the other ones I'm going to pass on. I bought grey oval laces already to switch out; you're spot on with the blue laces.

    I want to acquire some BLACK vapors but I can't find any in my local stores.

    Even online they don't have my size and I'm afraid I won't be able to get a refund if they suck/don't fit.

    What do?

    There are no black Vapors, but you can make your own on NikeID.

    The US Open Claim the Night limited Black Vapors are awesome. I got mine and they sold out fast! Search of them...

    Agree, I think that's what threw me off on the new colors, baby blue and volt combo was a painful sight imo.

    These are so nice. One kid I play with busts these out once in a while and I'm always impressed by them. Very nice looking shoes.

    They're limited edition. I don't know where you'd even find them.

    I was just checking the prices on e bay and got some ridiculous prices.

    On the other hand the Nike store has these new black/red vapors that look like pure awesome but they're out of stock apparently they're new or something. :(

    Borg, happen to have any pics? I was at the employee store this weekend and didn't see anything new yet, still just the iw shoe. Black and red would look good, much better than the new gray ones anyway

    They don't make the 9's anymore. Those were the id, nike's custom line you can get made to order. I'm really hoping they're going to do this again but with the 9.5's.

    That picture is from a couple months ago from federers twitter. Seriously doubt these go retail. Would love to be wrong though. Best vapor design I've seen.

    Not in the US as far as I can tell. If you go to select it on their site it says temporarily unavailable. Hopefully, presumably until the vapor 9.5 id is available.

    are the 9 id's still available on the UK site? that was where your link took me. The US one is not.

    Why was my post deleted?

    Did Nike agents hack the website or something?

    Same thing happened to me.

    Did you post a picture? LOL I was simply referencing Nike's actual site.

    Hmm, ok I guess we can't post Nike pictures, unless they are photos by users. That makes sense.

    I had asked a question in mine about the new colorways that are on Nike's site for the 9.5s that are listed as "sold out". Curious if those are previews, because they both look very good, quite neutral and not as "loud" as all the current neon options.

    JT_2eighty,

    The pictures you posted are of upcoming shoes that have not been released yet. This is why your post was deleted.

    Legend of Borg,

    Your post was deleted because it was a link to the Nike website. While we sell Nike, we still consider the Nike website a competitor and thus cause for deletion.

    If you mean the new colorway seen on TW then it's also available in Atlanta, GA. Been out here for over a week now.

    Vapor 9 wasn't available for ID last week. I think they may be getting ready to id the 9.5.

    That red shoe is a 9.5 not an id 9.

    I'm pretty sure this was asked before, but can't find it so -- how different 9.5s feel compared to 9s?

    He did look good. And after posting the question I noticed that the dark color fades into the same purple as the shirt - so in that regard the outfit worked. But still a little too bright for me. I think I'm going to like the Wimbledon ones though. :)

    They feel the same to me - soft, comfortable.

    Maybe it is the power of suggestion but 9.5s feel absolutely perfect - would not change anything

    Darn, they seem to have removed an option from a few weeks ago. Midnight navy is no longer available as a mesh upper option.
