damn nice shoe collection bro! Keep those Vapor 5's bright white like that
whoah how'd you get that jacket?
Fresh Vapor 5s and also the barricades looks new as!
I guess thats what you get for playing in HCs though (less dirt) then clay :evil: (I refuse to wear my beautiful white/red vapor 4s on the red stuff)
I obtained it here in Mexico... in a local store... but a friend mine changed it to me...
I wear my Vapor IV's on HC's and it got dirty pretty quick, probably because of the dirty ground and all my sliding.
Bad thing about HC's is that it wears out your shoe so quickly.
Supermario343, can you tell us what is the size comparison between Nike Vapor 5 and Adidas Barricade 5.
Your Vapor 5 shoes and Barricade 5 shoes, was the same size or not?
I all ready have one pair of barricade 5, and i´m interesting in Vapor 5, like yours, but in my contry doesn´t have the vapor 5, so i need to buy online.
Can you put some close-up photos (Front, Right side,Left Side, Back, 3/4 Front, Up) of nike vapor 5 white/obsidian, and tell us about the shoe size.
If anyone have nike vapor 5 white obsidian , and can put some real photos, please post.
Sorry, i make mistake.
The previous post is for EZRA and not for Supermario343
They're the same size... I'm wearing half a size smaller.
The VAPOR 5 looks fresh coz it is fresh just bought that one. The Barricade 5's are 3 weeks old.
not sure why, but i like the white insoles.
i put the insoles from my vapor 2's in my `V's-comfier
why did you buy a new pair of vapors when the barricades are new
maybe he wanted the best of nike and adidas...?
i'm going to do the same. I cant wait for the new White/Red Vapor V's even though my barricade V's are fine.
CUJAYS - I was curious on how the Vapor 5's are. I read a lot of great reviews about them and people are raving about how good those shoes are. I've been walking on them since yesterday and I totally agree on how good these things really are. I am planning on getting another pair as soon as the Nike Store here in NYC gets more shipments of the black ones (they only have sizes 12 and up).
Size comparison hmm.....the barricades have more room for wider feet. The vapors are pretty much made for narrow feet and they hurt ur feet if you play in them for long enough. So my favorite choice is the barricades just bc my feet fit better in the barricades than the vapors.
So, supermario, broken any strings or tried any new great string hybrids? What's new?????
haha i recently broke one yes...i strung up big ace and forten sweet last night...hoping to test it maybe tonight ordered some more apparel too! haha how about u?
Doing pretty good. Getting ready to go to my tennis camp on Sunday.... Still trying to pick a stringing machine though. I really like how the Eag-300 is... What do you think???
tennis camp sweet! i dont really know what it looks like but i use the gamma progression II 602 FC and it works great
Here is the link:http://www.eagnas.com/eag300.html
It looks very identical to a neos. And it's at a good price too.... What would you do if you were me?
I'll be back in a couple of hours... Gotta go to a graduation party...
Because he wanted a pair of both shoes
I bought these two pairs - because I wanted both of them, couldn't decide which one to get, so bought them both
hmm not sure if i would like the sliding clamps like that though..but its up to u bro!
Do you guys wash your shoes after every match? How do you keep them so clean? or are they brand new? lol Those Cages are sweet btw, just ordered a pair last night.
I love my Vapor V's, low and speedy. I'm waiting for the wimby ones to come out.
I took the pics just after I got them from TW.
They look red now, because I play on red clay the entire outdoor season 9/10 times. Only play hard court, when it's very very hot and dry in the weather to avoid the red dust particles getting in my lunges....LOL.....
I much prefer to play on red clay - in fact I kind of hate hard courts compared to red clay. Only downside to red clay is that your shoes will get red and be almost impossible to clean - but why clean them, when I only use them for tennis anyway
I keep my Vapor V's in white mint clean condition - as I only use them for hard court play only and use them from and to the tennis club. I also always change from the Cages to the Vapors, when I'm done playing tennis, so I can enter the club house and restaurant wearing all clean white shoes :lol:
No, Mario, I don't have any of King Fed's latest clay court season polo, this is my latest addition, I have 3 of this polo in different color.
Awesome jacket dude.
ohh ok fair enough lol still a nice shirt though
yah it is
i like that shirt
Amazing how some people here only buy one brand and have the whole outfits. I wish more people did that, really shows you are serious about tennis. In practice however i just wear my regular t shirt and shorts. There is nothing worse than someone with a lacoste shirt, nike capris and adidas barricades lol
Many of the solid 5.0 players I've encountered don't match. Some don't even bother wearing dry fit clothes.
I think it's worse to dress to the hilt and play like turd than to dress like a slob and play like a champ.
Obviously, the optimal situation is to look and play like a champ.
I was having my racquet strung and came across the shoe racks. Saw a pair of Accelerators on sale for $60 so I grabbed a pair.
idk what is nice the vapor 5's or the accelerators. sweet shoesguys
The Accelerators seems to have good support and has a low-to-the-ground feel like the VAPOR 5's (I'm currently breaking them in.. walking around the house with it). The only drawback is that this pair is a little on the heavy side.
I haven't used them on the court yet but for now, I'd choose the Vapor 5's over these.
Ezra, which ones are the most cushiony & comfortable?
I think I like Adidas shoe designs better, and Nike Apparel designs better.
Anyone else with me?
Puma and Asics designs are even better!
i agree Jolly
Except for the Vapors, in the Nike shoes, I have to agree with you, BF's and Cages aren't the prettiest shoes around. Although, Adidas apparel is a solid second to Nike.
LOL, same here.
I only use my cage2s on clay cus IMO they looks like shoes that were made for long hard battle (so does Barricades) and use my beautiful Vapor IVs on syn grass and HCs I love the sleek and stylish look too much
Me 2 :lol:
Also have all 3 color combinations of these shirts - they are very comfy to wear and light weight.
Though I prefer the new Federer polo's, they are even greater to wear - I also have them in 3 versions, dark blue, white and light blue - they are great
Damn that is a nice track top!
Anyone knows this tennis shirt from Nike ?
Just bought it and love the color combo, the sweat wicking material and the zipper closure
Attention Lendl & Federer fan:
Here are pics of all the stuff, I should have washed and some of the stuff from my cupboard - there are circa 40 Nike golf polos some where in these pics - take it for what it is.....
And BTW - I own 10 pair of Timberland boots - I love them :lol:
Gotta admit, thats pretty damn impressive
thats a lot of stuff lol...maybe if i put all my stuff together i can amount to that too...i have quite a bit of shorts ik that
Here are some pics of 12 pair of new Nike tennis shorts (9" and 10") I just got from TW...
I have circa 25 tennis shorts total - the rest is in the washer or should have been :lol:
