    Vapor IVs. Do you recall "Darth Federer"? If not, this was part of his 2007 USO ensemble/all black outfit. Finding these shoes are rare, especially in this color. usually white with blue accents is more commonly found, or at least that's what I see most of the time. Hope this helps!!

    For some reason, I think that Barricade color way is gorgeous. I actually bought the Barricade Team 2s in that color way. Those are solid shoes for the price.

    I found the Vapor 6's at the Houston Men's Clay Championships. They only had the one pair, in my size, for $65, which I considered to be an amazing deal considering they were my favorite shoes of all time. I also got the blue 3.3's for $68 (including shipping), from G-Smith (the 3.3's are probably my second favorite shoes ever).

    just wondering, did anyone get a pair of the scarlet red 4.3's yet? I saw a pair on this forum earlier but just really wondering if they have the black outline on the swoosh... nike keeps posting pics of the 4.3's without the outline.. which I like a ton better..

    I was there on Wednesday (evening) and Thursday (day), I only ever saw the one pair, it would have made sense if they had more though.

    My coworkers told me how bad Nikes fit my feet, so I decided to try these out. So far so good, great fit out of the box. We'll see how they play.

    Just got the 4.3s in today, great deal on them too, only $31.XX with 6 month durability intact. Total for these shoes cost me somewhere around $120-130. The Barricades were the most expensive at $60 from TW. I hope to at least wear through a pair and send them in. The Barricades I have had for 7 months, and still have about 20-30% wear left on them, and ultra comfortable right now. The others are still BNIB.

    I really wanted the Blue/Green colors on the 4.3, this Silver/White is just too conservative. But they were the only ones on sale, so I took them.

    How do you get shoes so cheap? What size are you? I'm UK... is it easier to find tennis trainers at knock-down prices there??

    They are Size 13, a little big,compared to what I wear for Adidas, about half and inch, but I can work with the extra space, just wear double socks or something. I got them from Amazon from their Warehouse Deals, it is brand new when I received them. And ontop of that, they were described as the Clay version, but I got the Hard court version with the 6month durability. The other two pairs were form TW, the Babs were around $30 or 35, I forget, but during their Facebook 50% off sale, and the B6s were from a Price Match I got from them from a competitor.

    Barricade teams are by FAR the best bang for your buck deal on earth. Mine have lasted my since march playing 10 hours a week or so. They are plush out of the box and have just enough space for toes :) plus for $45 - $50 you cannot beat them

    I gotta admit I'm SOOOO jealous!!!! I got a Lunar 9 for $49.99 yesterday and I thought it was a good deal!!!!

    How did you you get the Babolat (that's Propulse 3 right?) in that colorway?? That looks so slick.... I want to get one too!!!

    And how do you get these deals again? just be a fan of TW on FB?

    You did get a good deal on the Lunars, I would have taken them. For the deals, I just Price Match with TW for the most part, and the 4.3s I got on Amazon. And those are the Bab All Courts, not the Propulse 3s.

    Question about them, are they retail spec? Looks like they don't have the filled in air max on the inside/other Rafa mods, but they weren't ever released, so what are they? A promo model?

    That's a lot of shoe boxes in the background of the first pic :p

    Rough estimate of the amount of shoes in the collection?
