    They are VI and play great. I love the snug fit. They are very light and easy to clean.

    I just don't understand why the laces are so short. Is Nike trying to save a penny again. :)

    These are the Vapor V Takedown version. They're probably not as good as the real vapor V's

    I have a little problem with my vapor 6. Last year I had the V's and they fitted perfectly. With the 6 I have the problem that the heel area is a bit too wide for me.
    Because of this my heels are moving a litte bit up when I walk, but more are they moving sideways when sliding around the court.

    Does anyone have a solution for this?
    Great thanks in advance!

    Lex, let me be the first to ask.

    Many of us have seen the lime and purple Air Tech Challenge Agassi recreations.

    Where did you find that sick red color?

    I know, I know...

    I love the Air Tech's (best shoes Nike ever made). I mainly play on clay, so the wear issues don't haunt me.

    I found the Red/Black ones on the ''bay''.

    I used to have a pair in a blue/purple color too (had a redish color with it). I loved the Air Flare in purple/white back in the day. Now, you only see black/white and red/white.

    This is my collection of RF shoes - a couple of Roger customs, a few limited editions, and the rest are the normal retail versions.

    Sweet! Obviously they are savers, but what do you actually play in?

    WOW. Gotta say though, the most impressive are the top, central two- how did you get the red ones let alone signed?!.
    As for the top left, all i can say is, good taste- i love my pair :)

    The 2 Vapor 5s in the top centre are actually Roger's custom shoes, the red one I got from auction and the black & white one (my favorite) through a friend. The limited editions I got onsite from the USO in 07, 08 & 09 (the bay was recently flooded with the Vapor 6 USO day shoes as you would know) the rest are just normal retail RFs.

    Jo11yroger - you are rght, these are just for my collection, I play in my normal Wimbledon & FO Vapor 6

    I gotta thank TMCW140 for the Oreos RF shoes, he was the first to get hold of them and shared where he got them, that's how I got my pair, absolutely great taste on your part :)
