    It's not difficult to search, takes about 10 seconds.

    Yeah, white laces completely changed my mind on these shoes. Totally makes it all work. A surprise entry to gsoathood.

    Both of those Vapor 9s look great with the new laces. Good job.

    what I was thinking! The huge tongue doesn't look proportional with the small shoe..

    Nope. These are US8.5. Actually when you cut the tongue, you can really pull it to make it big. :)

    Man, I wish I could wear shoes that size- they must feel so light and maneuverable. I'm only 5'11" but my feet are a size 12 in B7s, still got very good wheels but would likely even better without about 18oz on each foot. Well, there are certainly worse problems to have. Good choice of shoe btw, still have some new 2.3s leftover.

    Nike will make new Air max breath in 2013.
    It might be most interesting tennis shoes from nike next year.
    it might be middle of Vapor and courtballistec for weight and durability.
    the price is cheaper than two and comes with the warranty too.
    current 2k12 or 2011 is good comfortable shoes but has worst durability.

    Well, lets see what they came out with.

    My favorite shoe all time was the Zoom though.
    Im not sure how other people feel about it, but I assume there would be a market for it still.
    Adidas does it with the Barricade 2

    No worries, West Coast Ace actually did that too before me :)

    And thank you as well for the inspiration on the Cincy V9, I will do the same thing to it too after the TW sale takes on effect :p

    The Cincy's look spot on with the navy laces!

    Big fan of VOLTS. I'm hooked on these Vapors:

    There is only one shoe for volt fans, it begings with a G, looks a bit like CB and ends with 2.3

    okay so I am looking to try something out - anyone ever try playing tennis in basketball shoes I wanna get a pair of KobeVII to play just matches in I would practice in much more durable shoes but I think playin in basketball shoes would be awesome, you can even get the XDR sole if you do them on NIKE iD - do you think they would last throughout the spring?

    Not as cool as some of the collections here but i like them.
    Every once in a while I try something besides Barricades and they just seem to fall apart. Like i said before, the only shoe i would trade the barricades for would be if NIke came out with the Zooms again. [​IMG]

    Nice collection but the Barricade Teams look a bit out of place.

    Yeah, like i said, i like to give other shoes a try, figured for the price might as well try the team version.
    Nope, doest hold up as well as the regular ones.

    i have finally found the right sock for my obsidian V9s! I have been in search for the perfect sock since black socks seem to be a not too good combination while white socks (well, we have seen federer with them, you be the judge) just doesnt do it since shorts and top are dark colored. I found these and I would just fold the socks at the top to cover up the design and would get the perfect length. Best of all, it really looks nicer vs the 2 other options.[​IMG]

    the problem with these is that they are really bright blue. in the pics, they look almost black. but in the daylight, they're blue as the sky. not too happy.

    First time trying a 4.3. These will go back to TW unfortunately - bad fit (awkward arch) and like others have said the tongue is disturbingly minimalist

    [​IMG]

    Converse JP Evo, these are more comfy but still has a weird fit, not sure if I should size down half a size or not...

    Found all the same problems. Arch was bad, tongue was tiny... And my laces... broke... after a tight pull.

    Obsidian laces looks better IMO.
