    Yeah, even people who are anti Vapor 8's have to admit they look awesome.

    Just a Vapor 8 pj though, they're def his vapor 6 with the custom soles and other fine details. Would've been hard for nike to paintjob the white panels onto the uppers of a vapor VI

    Yes, looks like one pair to me too. Just a design effect me thinks. Nonetheless, overall outfit looks badass.

    Apolgies - going to go off topic. Looking at the top pic, anyone here thinks this is a Semi-Western grip? My friend here adamantly disagrees.

    Wanted to get your opinions/thoughts.

    The pic is after fed hit his forehand... His grip changes after contact. FYB made a video about Fed's grip

    Which is inaccurate. Fact is, federer does at times hit with an abbreviated grip (eastern/semi western).

    Many thanks for the props. When I wore them like this, this past Friday for the tennis social, I received a lot of compliments. Looks really nice.

    Yes, I agree.

    My fav combo was the Darth Federer outfit of 07.

    But this one is a strong contender.

    Rafa's shoes look a bit like space boots. Maybe white socks would have looked better?

    Looks identical to the Vapor 6 @USO 09, cant stand it...(probably because of the boring repetition..)

    roger's shoes look awesome.

    i don't really like rafa's though, i think they would have looked much better all black with yellow accents.

    i think rafa's shirt is alright (personally like the blue one better). but it think it would look pretty cool in black with the yellow design, or yellow with the black design.

    does anyone else realize that Fed's black socks have no Nike check thing on the inside?
