    Anyone have pics of the Court Ballistic 1.3 ? I want to see detailed live pictures and see how ugly they really are ;D (The first two colorways )

    mrmo1115, I wish I had seen your pics before purchasing my barricade V's. The navy/yellow ones do indeed look dark enough to be black.

    So, I am assuming you wanted to get those?

    And, The white/obsidian C.B. 1.3's are growing on me. I am having second thoughts on the black/pink and decided that they are not for me, I can't pull it off, and the white/concord purple doesn't do it for me either. This might mean that I might get a pair of these when I need to get a new pair of Nikes. I am definitely getting the White/Yellow Fall 09 C.B. 1.3's though, those are sweet ! No doubt.

    I was debating between the Navy/Yellow and Black/Silver. Went w/ the latter not knowing how dark the former really is.

    I saw the Navy/Yellow Feathers so I didn't really take that as an option when I choose my Barricades.

    Also when I send in my Nike Cage Is, I will be getting the Vapor VIs in Black.

    I see, my next shoe may be the White/Obsidian C.B. 1.3's that are out now, just that I won't be getting them until I wear out a pair of my Cage 2's. I don't like the Black/Pink nor the White/Concord Purple so I might just go back and grab these. Plus they are supposed to stay for a while since the fact is that the time between now and the French, there will be no more new colors. Nike really making it limited this year w/ the C.B.'s..

    Well, I have been debating over and over again the past 1 1/2 days and I realized that I can't pull off pink :twisted: Even if I really tried, I don't think I'd do a good job of it. I am not really a crazy dresser, so maybe thats why I won't get them. I like the color combo, just not sure I can pull it off. Same goes for the White/Concord Grape.

    The Yellow/White seems like a better safer choice, as well as the White/Obsidian ones, which I have pretty much changed my mind about... which also may be my next Nike shoe !

    Well with the White/Obsidian you really can't go wrong. Its plain , but I mean you won't have to worry about looking a bit weird or out of the norm. I like color s of the Black/Pink , just that I can't manage to wear pink for tennis. I don't even wear pink normally to school etc.

    I know for a fact Im going to get the Yellow/Ones (Fall 09 ones) if I do like the C.B.'s, but first I need to get a pair to also playtest for myself, which will probably be the White/Obsidians.

    Make sure you tell me how the shoe compares to the Cage 2 / BV if you use either or both. My playtest of the shoe will be the first pair I get of the shoe, which will most likely be the White/Obsidian ones, unless Nike comes out w/ a new colorway that will sneak in other than the 5 known colorways we all know about for this year.

    A person said that if the BV and the Cage 2 were to have a baby, the C.B. 1.3 would be it. That sounds great , but some one else didn't like it so much and dubbed it "Bricks" instead of Ballistecs. Haha.

    We'll see when I try them out myself in the near future. Don't forget to insert your input as well. Hopefully , I can burn my Cage 2s fast enough so I can go grab a pair of these C.B.'s (white and obsidian )

    I am going to bet that when I wear out my Cage 2's the White/Obsidian ones will still be avaliable and be the one still out. We will be seeing the Neon/Turq and White/Obsidian ones for a while now...

    I am going to wear them out to the point they are no longer in wearable condition. Which will take probably 1 1/2 months to 2 months. Then I should be able to pick up the White/Obsidian C.B. 1.3's

    Before, I was trying to think I was going to go from now until the Black/Pink ones on only 2 pairs of Cage 2s. Now its funny, I want to wear them out as fast as I can , so I can grab a pair of the White/Obsidian C.B. 1.3's because I decided against the Black/Pink ones for some obvious reasons... Try those, if I like them, then get the Fall 09 ones or possibly the White/Concord if I need another pair before the Yellow/White ones come out.

    Haha, I have made up my mind though. Pass on the Black/Pink , Pass on the Neon/Turq, Pass on the White/Concord (unless I need a pair by the time these come out). My first pair will be the White/Obsidians and if I like those, I will definitely get the White/Yellow ones.

    The old Agassi works pretty good, and very comfortable as well. I used to wear the Air Tech when I was a teen back in the early 90s, so I was pretty happy Nike did a retro on them...

    Sweet Supermario343, I think thats the first picture I have seen of someone who bought the C.B. 1.3 at all, either colorway. I got to try those one at my local pro shop on two seperate occasions. Have you tried them yet? IMO, they don't look good on me. The fit was a snug one and it felt like the shoe was almost glued to my foot. I noticed the additional weight immedialy. As for how I feel about the shoe, without using them on the court, I think that I like the feeling of my Cage IIs a bit better, but that may be because the C.B. 1.3 needs some time to break in and getting used to the mold of your foot, as said by PED.

    Edit: And how did they mess up on your colorway choice? o_O

    why dont they use the same outsole as the air max breathe cage or ballisitcs for the vapors so the vapors can have a durability guarantee..

    Mario, you beat me to it. I was at a local tennis pro shop the weekend, and planned to pick that clown colorful Ballistic 1.3 for my nephew, too bad it did not carry my little nephew's size. :)
