    Oh I see. Can you just walk in there and buy stuff or do you need to be a coach or under sponsorship?

    they can be quite sticky.. I have known the one guy for many years so know him well and get most my stuff there. Just go and ask for graham (he is quite a nice guy) .. just say a mate said he had some shoes on special... .. and on another note.. there is a guy upstairs who does stringing (harry) who is the best in JHB.

    Thank you!

    I have heard of Harry. One of the coaches at Randburg Tennis Club (Ryan) speaks of him often. He is the one thats connected at Wilson & Nike.

    I remember thinking they were hideous the 1st time I saw them - just like the Cotton Candys. But they quickly grew on me and I didn't want to miss out like I did on the Cotton Candys. Mine are just the regular ones - not the Rafa exclusives from the USO.

    How'd you get the fireballs on the bottom right hand corner shoe? Is that a PE?

    A guy who lives near the Nike HQ had them (obviously made sometime after '08 and before '10). Said they were a demo model - only 2 or 3 pairs made. I figured it was a good investment.

    The bottom left is the other view of the same shoe.

    I'll let you know! Maybe we will order some more stuff towards the end of the year! I will post some pics when my stuff arrives.. Such a pity we we don't get decent stuff here and when we do it is ridiculously over priced!

    The buyer asked me not to disclose. I did well. Although I remember someone showed up on this board and claimed they were worthless. LOL! He said he was an 'expert' at collecting/selling Air Jordans. Whatever.

    I didn't want to share sooner because I thought I would be taken for a fool... But as I saw that some of you are as "fool" as I am, I make the plunge :)

    Here are some of my shoes :

    Love those 2.3s. :) Still not a fan of Vapor 8s, but the black/lime is an interesting colorway.
