    The mesh, the tongue, the number, the sole, the top front of the foot material...loads of differences.

    You can see that murray is still using the barricade 5 claws on the upper of his shoe. The instep and upper of the shoe is the same as the retail barricade 5s however he is still using the barricade 5 claws, you can see the barricade 7 claws are just stickers.

    Anyone remember the days Murray wore Nike Vapor 8's? Wimbledon 09 comes to mind

    Dude V8 does not even come out in 2009, at that time prevailed V6.

    Those are clearly not V6's.
    V5's?
    Was Murray with nike at the time?
    I thought he had been with Adidas for a fairly long time

    Does anyone know why Nadal prefers such long tongues on his shoes?

    Just been checking the photos,Murray did change his shoes from Adias to Nike but only very temporarily.

    After Miami 2009 he played around with V6's through clay season, till getting back to Adidas in the run up to the US Open.

    Maybe these are customs or something PE or maybe they are none-regular Nike iD.

    I saw the white/ yellow ones (V9s) at my local store yesterday, but I never say the colorways that Azarenka, and Masha were wearing..

    It's interesting how different Sharapova's shoes are from the retail shoe..

    Aside from minor things like tread pattern and the toe box material hers also have a different shaped line/cut around where the foot goes in - hers is more rounded whereas the retail shoe is angular.

    The notches in the plastic support frame on hers are much further back in the fore foot also - lining up with the second triangle cut-out part whereas the retail one is close to the first cut-out part.

    Hers also have no plastic parts on the inside foot above and below the swoosh like the retail model. Likewise, the border of the white and yellow materials on hers are stitched, unlike the retail model (or Fed's custom jobs for that matter)

    She must be really particular about her footwear.

    seems that Maria gets the same treatment as Fed, especially the carbon fiber shank!

    Not a close up, forgive me, but you notice Harrison's 4.3's are a bit different than the retail version? There is no black on the inside it's just white and volt. They look much nicer IMO.

    Harrison's are indeed retail versions, they are new Volt colourways for 2013. A white tongue and a bit more volt are the main differences from the US Open versions.

    That's good. My next question is do you know when we are going to be able to buy them? There not on TW yet, maybe Feb 1st

    Edit: I just found them on a european site. Hopefully not a euro exclusive.

    Okay to all the pink haters:

    I disagree and I think that the pink shoes are fly as balls. But the ONLY problem with the pink is that it looks ridiculous unless it is a cohesive outfit.

    Chardy was rocking them with an all-white outfit and it looked fine. But it is still damn hard to match these shoes with an outfit

    Venus is still wearing Vapor 8's? :)

    Nevermind, I think those are the Lunar Speed 3's. Or Ladies' Vapor 8's.
