    Its been discussed in the past that the removal of the inner top eyelet hardware helps to alleviate possible uncomfortable annoyances of the Vapor 6.

    I've lived with small gripes with my Oreos because of my obsession with their looks, and also I do enjoy the low to the ground tight feel of them. The support is unmatched. But, I have lived with the eyelet pains for a while but never went thru with removing them because I'm fat and lazy and prefer tennis over surgery on shoes.

    Well I did today and glad I did. If you feel any weird pain on your inner right foot from the eyelets remove them NOW.

    The parts consist of a clear hard plastic round clip holder of the eyelet that sits on the inside part of the lacing hole: always remove this first with your needle nose pliers then the black part pops out.

    The little black hardcore steel bullet like eyelet piece, this is the real harm of this setup. The black piece is the cause of all the drama, its poor design, it needs to be re-engineered in the V8.

    Heres some pics.

    I can't tell if your serious or not, but I think your not.

    No way, I'm always down for air hockey exos but what are the chances we're in the same town....

    We can play a 4 player game on this table if you don't wanna play singles.

    Just an FYI, I'm NTRP 6.5 in Air Hockey.

    I removed every eyelet piece on my Oreos and Ballistecs and both feel much better, although I still feel the Vapor lacing at the top really puts a lot of pressure on the ankle.

    I just removed the hard eyelets on my black/red USO night match RF version, not just the very top eyelet(that I don't use anyway) but ALL 4 eyelets on both shoes, and wow, it makes a HUGE difference in comfort around the ankles!!! If you have these shoes you'e got to do this surgery!!

    Step 2 is getting the bloodstains out from where your ankles were worn down to the bone by the eyelet bullets and left trickles of blood all over the right edge of the tongue.

    I used an OxiClean/Lysol combination on mine and it worked great to get the stains out ... :)
