    No worries, will be sure to compare them properly after I have played in each.

    From just trying them on out of the box, the Vapors feel quite stiff (as everyone has said, though they are ment to loosen up after break in), but the CB's feel amazing comfort wise. I've always been a vapor man but wow the CB's feel great on!

    Though I still can't make a proper comparison before trying them out on the court!

    i only just bought them last weekend- worn the shoes for a lazy 5 sets.

    vapors are extremely comfortable,light-felt like i was floating on court

    btw it is my 1st pair of a dedicated nike sports shoe since '04,

    Alright shoe freaks...

    I'll need some help. My RBK Triple Break Pumps are starting to wear down on traction and the pump is about to break through. I'll send them to Reebok, so I have 2 questions:

    1. If you have some experience with Reebok returns, post plz.
    2. Which shoes should I get? I got $60 to spend on shoes. I have a medium foot with medium arch and it has to have some durability (not made of money.)

    Thanks in advance; I'll post pics as soon as my camera stops being the suck.

    I did that on ST. Patricks day when i realized i had a pair of green and silver cages 2 and just put one on... too lazy to put on the other, in order to avoid getting pinched.

    If you had the silver and black, and the gold and black, that would be legendary.

    Agree, been wearing vapors, barricades and BC 2s and when I made the switch to CB 1.3, it's like playing with socks (with massive support that is :)) and i didn't feel the weight bothered me at all.

    Btw josherer, did you get our overseas or local mate ?

    Hey mate.

    I got it from TW.

    I can get the AO Colourways for cheaper in AUS but I got the Pink CB and Blue Vapor 6' so had to pay the extra $$$ because they aren't available in Australia.

    I have these shoes, and couldn't lace them to the top hole if I wanted to either.

    I like the shoes now, though.
