This is a nice colourway for the Vapor 8.
Nice collection mate. They all look very brand new.
Yes, they are all brand new, never worn (still with tags).
The ones which are worn are not in a state to be seen ;-)
God the blue V8s are amazing.
I heard they were Europe exclusive. But not really sure.
The black/lime are Asia exclusive. This is for sure
I figured they didn't come to the US. Are you living in Asia? Or they were just picked up on a trip?
Jerome2606 nice collection- surely you need the red FO one's for the set?
Received from a friend who lives in China.
Well, i don't want to buy the ones with the "8" at the back, I just find it horrible. That means the red ones from the FO and the silver ones which are sold in the USA won't be mine.
Thanks. I'm hoping to find some Asia exclusive stuff when I go to watch Shanghai in Oct.
Agree. The rest of the shoe looks nice - but that 8 is goofy.
I wish you to find the stuff you will be looking for. Is there actually a Nike booth in the Shanghai Master ?
Right, I wanted to buy the red ones which look very nice, but the 8 definitely discredits the shoe :-(
2 rare Vapor colorways, jealous!
Nice collection Jerome. What shoe's do you currently wear? Vapour 7's?
my very small collection
Yes. Sometimes it's big; other times not. Last yr they were given a tiny area - so the Chinese manufacturers could have massive areas. There are a few Nike stores in the city.
A question about these Lunar Vapor 8 :
Can someone have them ?
So far, I only saw "version 2" in person... and i'm now doubting the "version 1" really exist !!!!
Please, post pics of them! Thanks
The v1 doesn't exist, it's just a wrong photo from the web.
There are many wrong photos on the web regarding the vapors. If you google "vapor 8 blue", you will see the blue Vap's in 2 versions : one with a white backside, another with a blue backside. Only the one with the blue backside exists.
OK... just like the current USO version then, which has 2 images but only one version available.
Too bad though, this white "version 1" was awesome, and I was ready to buy a pairs...
But I don't like the darker model
"You cannot be serious"
hopefully they can get matches in today @the USO.
they would look awesome for casual wear- during summer with a tee-shirt and shorts combo
I will receive another pair of the lime/black Vap8 from my friend in the next days. Size 9 once again. I will see if I wear them again or if I try to satisfy any unsatisfied member of the forum ;-)
I play with Vap 6 on hard court and Vap 8 on the clay. Both fit me well in Size 9.
I tried the Vap 7 but are definitively not as comfortable and the sizing is different from the 6's and the 8's.
I also played with a CB2.3 but it is now worn out :-(
Just received them yesterday, brand new in the proper size, can't believe it's real!!!!
There are some left on the web available!!!
You can paint that part red hehehe
LOL You should see the shoes if I do something like that : a disaster I am definitely not an artist!!!
Also available in all black. Sizes range from US 7 to 11.
could you send me the info on those? Thanks a ton in advance
I'd be highly suspicious if they have all colors and all sizes. They are probably fake.
I don't know where are the previous posts (probably deleted by the admin) but the site is 100% fake.
3 reasons for that:
- They say they have all "entire" size available (8, 9, 10,...) in each color;
- They don't have any half-size (8.5, 9.5, 10.5, ...)
- They say they have more than 40 units available
Please guys, don't be naïve !!! It's already difficult to find one single pair on the auction site and you want this website to have all these shoes available !!!
There are some half-sizes. The sizes vary with each colorway. I feel the need to point out that I have no affiliation with the site (which I wil not name) and I have no idea if they're authentic. If they had some size 12s or 12.5s, I'd be tempted to pick up a pair.
That's the website you gave the link earlier, isn't it ? If yes, 100% fake. If no, then I don't know what website you are talking about so that I can't judge it.
Hm? I've never given anyone a link. I just posted some info since everyone was asking about colors and sizes. It's probably best if we just drop the issue.
I sent you a message. It should make you feel happy ;-) (at least I hope so )
Oh sorry, someone else posted a link earlier today (which is now deleted) and I thought it was you. My mistake, sorry!!
FYI guys, fake Vapor VI are the most popular fakes out there (with fake Barricade V and VI) in where I live and probably in Asia and therefore the whole world in general....
LOOK SEE SAMPLES
pickup from the bay- luckily @ retail
All recent pickups in the last month, really got lucky from one seller on the bay and got the other from cold calling a club in CA. These will backup my current 2 pair of VI that are on their way out
Pssst if you have the Vapor VI Oreo in an 11, Talk to me!! Lets work it out
I can only be admiring !!!
Only big sizes available by your seller on the bay or also smaller sizes?
Well he has still a 12 online now, but I'm an 11 (not that big right haha) and he happened to have three pairs in my size. There are a size 10US and 9.5US on the bay but you'd spend a lot, but if you KNOW the VI's are for you, you might as well try and get a little discount through asking. I was lucky to get all those three below retail and the black pair I got right at retail plus tax and shipping. I mean if the right colorway( cough Oreo) came up in my size, I wouldn't hesitate to pay condierably more than retail....that's just because I know the VI are the shoe for me.
These honestly hardly ever come up in popular sizes, so you have to check very frequently because when they do come up, they usually don't last longer than 12-24 hours.
Thanks for your answer Area.
You're right, they don't last a long time when they are available.
I did manage to get the white/grey, the black/grey and the black/red in my size few weeks ago. Lucky too.
And yes, they are the shoes for me ;-)
Where'd you score your pairs? if you don't mind me asking
I don't mind
2 pairs on the bay and one pair on an online shop.
^^ what are those?
Mind-blowing. What exactly is the CB pattern made of?
I remember seeing those shoes on the bay a week or two ago. If I had that kind of money to throw around I was interested since that is my size, but they both got way too expensive for me.
