    yep, it's sl because if they used mesh on the forefoot, clay would build up on that area

    actually since the SL/clay getting into mesh issue has been brought up here, I was wondering if people have bought the clay 4.3's and tried them out? does clay get in easily?

    They should make a leather version available on the Vapor9 iD when you choose a clay sole !!! Non-sense to make a "clay" iD with mesh !!

    Can not see clearly in that shot, but would be interesting to know if Nike made a SL version for him (not available on iD), or if he could just get the mesh...

    I think it's just regular mesh nikeid shoes. I don't think Nike will make customize shoes for him since he wears lacoste nowadays ^_^

    Beside fed and maria, who wears SL version of Vapor 9?
    seems like everyone use mesh vapor 9... especially women...

    Synthetic Leather, some of the V9s last year from the clay season had synthetic leather in the forefoot instead of mesh

    What's the difference between the SL and the regular ones?

    ^^The SL wears better where the material meets the hard plastic/rubber piece around the toe. I've had two pair of the non SL vapors and they both ripped in this area. Nike was nice enough to replace them.

    V9's with SL get a bit hot on a scorching day. I cant actually vouch for this because I've only worn the mesh ones, but my brother and teammates who've tried both said its pretty noticeable.
    But if you play on clay with the mesh version you'll be having a major clean up everytime you hit the dirt

    I wear 2k11s on clay and they have even more mesh than the 4.3s. However, the mesh on both shoes is very tight and fairly rigid and does not let clay in. The B7 is similar.

    With shoes like the Gel Resolution the mesh is softer and more porous so clay will likely enter much more easily. Mesh Vapor 9s seem similar.

    I like his black outsole version more than the GR. In general I think the crimson color is too bright here.

    Thanks for the pictures.

    Nike being Nike. It's not close to the real crimson - it's orange.

    Beautiful shoes. Such a shame that the new limited edition Vapors didn't come decked out with the RF on the tongue, and the trophy "7".
