    Check your closest adidas store. They should have them. I saw them at the SF adidas store when I was visiting. But I got my pair at the adidas employee store.

    So most adidas outlets should have them?

    Stadtler,

    Thanks a ton for the heads up! Through a rather detailed process, I was able to track a pair down in Atlanta and they are headed my way. Again, thanks for the heads up because I think this is one of the best looking tennis shoes I've ever seen.

    I don't know about the adidas outlet stores, but the official adidas stores should have them. So the one in NYC or SF, etc... I doubt many peeps are buying them, so you should be able to get a pair if you can track a store down that has them. When I was at the adidas employee store, there was clearly a full size run, and looked barely touched.

    I sourced mine in Atlanta. The strange thing is I had to go buy a gift card to then get them.

    Sorry for the 1st blurry pic, I was too lazy to capture again...

    As you may or may not notice, the glue in V9 is quite visible. I guess we are in a weak glue era :( Good thing in return is that I got them for $95 (locally)

    Hey guys, my first ever post, not the best photo but I can't get over how great they are out of the box!

    I've just moved from AdiZero Feathers and they are a bit of a wider fit at the front which is better for me as I have quite wide feet and now I don't get any blisters on the outside of my foot.

    Welcome to the forum! These look great, but I have too many shoes that are aggressive in colors, was hoping these aren't as silvery in person but it seems that way ... ahh well! Thanks for the pic!

    Thanks :) and don't worry they aren't that silvery in the flesh, the flash on my iPhone is so bright and the material on the upper part of the shoe is incredibly reflective so it makes them look that way.

    I take your point though, when I took the photo, I was like did I buy those shoes :confused:

    That jacket looks like a glorified poncho on the medal winners. Why does it cost $250+? The regular windrunner's look better and retail for like $70.

    ^ Have you seen them in person. Quality is on point and it actually feels like a windbreaker/jacket unlike the regular windrunner that feels like a trash bag.

    Forget shoes-shirt matching, dog matching is the new shizzle :)

    Congrats T21D and Fedhenry on the nice finds. Too bad for me 4.3 still looks like a toy for me but I'll buy one on sale anyway to get the credit later.

    I really love them but the 4.3s were a bit too wide for me. They'd go with my team's football top:

    Some pics when I was changing the lace. As I kinda expect, the red one does not looks so good (probably because it's so thin). I will try white soon.

    "Rugged" tongue. Gotta say that overall I'm a kinda disappointed for this build quality of a $130 shoes

    +1. I was horrified when I was at Niketown in Vegas a few weeks before the Olympics started and saw some of the prices - insane.

    A guard dog for your Nike gear! Awesome.

    Look like his indian wells shoes (or all the post AO stuff), very nice. Can't really tell if the fitframe has the cutout section, probably the best give away if they're legit or not

    These aren't fake, they just weren't worn by Fed. Nike didn't even debut the RF Logo until Wimbledon of that year. These are simply retail Vapor IV's with a custom embroidery job.

    Quality and Nike are not compatible. That poncho was made in a Chinese sweatshop for like $5. Absolutely no reason for them to be charging $450.
