TW just got these shoes in stock not to long ago. I'll be buying these
also buy a red shoe lace, it looks awesome with those 308s
I'll have to!....
stan's shoes look like they would gt really hot.... o.o
japanese version of black/red 308 supplied with black and red laces, the red one is longer than the black.
stan should have worn black socks. it would totally complement the shoe. just my opinion
Closer look at Rafa's customized version of Lunar Ballistec...
different logos, tongue and the whole midsole / outsole!
Not to mention the main thing- the flywire is a paint job fake.
Great catch! I wasn't sure based on the TV pics.
OOOH MY GOOODDDD!!!!! Some one sue Nike now!!!!
Doesn't NIKE have a disclaimer about their apparel?
Turns out the Flywire is just a gimmick!
Why are people freaking so much about Rafa not using the retail version? He hasn't for years, and as for Federer...
Because people on here are fanatics. I think they somehow think it takes away from the retail version because Fed and Nadal don't wear the exact gear that's for sale.
I love that we all spot these details. I hate how it's overblown into "The shoes suck so much that Rafa and Fed won't wear them!" ...and every season, a bunch of us end up buying the shoes because they perform meet most of our needs.
^ Some people are being sarcastic.
Notice how those who are making a big deal out of it and keep on reposting the same picture have a green username
Hey, everyone needs to feel important. Children especially.
I would expect that comment from others... SMH
At least my posts are contributing to the thread.
From Nike Tennis on Facebook:
nadal shoes vs tomic http://rafaelnadalfans.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/nadal-australian-open-r1-2014-3.jpg
I dig these ^
Nike should dump the LBs and sell these. With the 2.3 outsole that I prefered
Yeah, that white/blue/red color scheme looks awesome. They really should sell CB 4.3 in that color.
I concur! and be done with the VOLT cw.
I stopped using the cb's, but I would go back for those white ones
Too bad Nike doesn't just use the same tongue on Rafa's shoes for the commercial shoes. The short tongue is not something I like...
They are quite similar to the Olympics "white/red/black" CB.
People who like the AO colorway could try to buy the Olympics one.
That ones nice as well, but that blue used for the swoosh and shoe string in the current model is just so exquisite.
Yeah I know, I know
Maybe with navy or black laces it would make the illusion much better.
Anyway it's still a good option as soon as you can't get the AO one.
Stans shoes in Shanghai 2014. I see he has a little AO trophy on there these days.
Just an observation, but notice how differently Roger and Rafa's shoes are made looking from the back of the shoe. The rearfoot is more supinated (turning their heels outward), whereas in the retail versions the rearfoot is pronated (turning your heel inward). I used to think this was due to orthotics worn, but looking at actual pictures of the shoes its clear these are custom modifications.
Both Rafa & Fed have custom setups - 99.99% of the tour wear what we get. Those two for obvious reasons are special.
^^^they don't make those anymore
A few of player PE's in my collection.
What is he (Nadal) wearing -- 3 sizes too large socks on a size too small shoes??
T21D these are sick!
We have to talk..
I thought they were a run of the mill shoes with the labeling and trophy. But I have the orange cw, and noticed big differnces when I put them side by side. Note- Stan is a size US10.5 and I happen to wear the same size in Yonex.
1. Weight- his are much lighter, even when I took off my stock insole.
2. Beefy padding and higher cut around the ankle/achilles. I'm assuming for protection and torque.
3. The outsole is a quarter inch more, added cushion, than the general release.
4. The overall feel of the shoe feels like it hugs your feet as opposed to the store bought version, I have to cinch up the laces to get a nice fit.
anyone know the details on these shoes Isner was wearing this week in Monte Carlo?
These are good old Zoom Breathe 2K11 IDs from 2011 (2012 as well I believe?).
It appears he is having issues getting his hands on some clay Ballistecs?
Some great pics in this link
loving that lunarlite cushioning
Can't post due to an IPad glitch, but I found this: http://i.imgur.com/1iC32wN.jpg
Probably from 2014 Wimbledon.
Has it been discussed before? Why can't Nike seem to make Rafa a pair of socks where the heel seam meets his actual heel? That cat is constantly wearing socks where the heel is sticking out the top of the shoe. Unless he's wearing socks meant for Delpo or something, it makes no sense....
Probably just pulls them too tight due to OCD behavior.
