    Because there is no chance you would pay what they would ask for a similar process

    From the 6-7 people on this forum that actually made and ID from the 2k11's it's hardly a money making machine for the tennis side of swoosh. The 2k11 is also on the "cheaper"end of of the tennis line(vapor/CB's). As is, most of the dudes on here are a bunch of cheapskates and would rather blow through the 6 month warranty to get a fresh pair. $150 for 2k11 ID, what more on a price hike on a Vapor or CB's.

    Thanks for the pics!
    Those shoes look pretty boring for Federer set-ups... :/

    Can anyone explain what the logo on the tongue means? Is it the RF logo ?

    I think those may have been the GSOAT. I would have bought 1000 pairs of these had they been made available.

    Because Roger occasionally likes having things that don't get sold to the public? :)

    because our tennis powers are not strong enough to tame the poly basalt force that lives within each pro shoe.

    Because they'd cost a fortune, and fall to pieces really quickly, so everybody would complain and the world would spontaneously combust*


    *at least 2 of these things are correct, you choose which

    Thanks for the pics. Seems that like Nadal does with keeping the CB2.3 sole pattern, Murray has maintained the tread pattern from the B5s.

    Any more pics of the Murray and Djokovic Adidas'?

    Azarenka's US Open shoes. One of the coolest shoes for ladies that I've seen in recent years.

    ^^^ The Fed Wimbledon shoes went for the bargain price of US $21,596.

    Probably Fabfed...?

    Former Wimbledon champion Jack Kramer says Roger is the best he has seen (and he is 85 years old!).
    John McEnroe sayas he wish he could have played like Federer.
    Borg says Federer is better than he was.

    Jack Kramer died in 2009--and what exactly does this have to do with shoes?

    They are the finals match worn correct?

    The back to the future air mags weren't at all special other than the fact that they went 100% completely to charity. But, they went for over 20K on ____
