    Nice. My wife wears Tirand IIIs in those colors whenever she wears her 1 adidas outfit. She's a Nike Tennis fan like me.

    After trying on about 5 different pairs of shoes including the Court Ballistecs (which looked extremely nice in real life), Barricade V Silver/Black, Babolat Propulse etc but I kept remembering the reviews of the gel resolution shoe and how they're good for flat feet. So... Here my new shoes:

    Nice, as a person with flat feet, where do you usually waer out the shoes from? I think I'm called like a heel-sdtriker since the outer heels for me war out faster or I should say the out edge. Like the way you have on your left shoes, from that edge pivot point to the heel area.

    I usually wear them down on the inside arch. Like they become slanted inwards... and wear out in the middle of the ball-point area

    I didn't know...well maybe I did, but I think I've seen a video of you hitting on youtube and you had flip flops so...made me think you can play in anything.:shock: Well cute shoes none the less, mine are anything but cute...they actually look quite new until you see the bottom or when you see me walking away darn heel of mine.

    The only shoes I like in that pic are those vapors, both models. I don't know how you got ahold of so many of the vapor 2s though.

    Wow, I can't count that well either :D 24 shoes including the boxed pair, 11 are tennis shoes. Vapors are classics but that year they were so badly made it was a joke. I went through 3-5 pairs a month and travelled with at least 3 fresh pairs and a practice pair because the sole kept peeling off. The decision to use poor quality glue to bond two surfaces which are consistently subjected to friction was incredibly foolish and extremely dangerous. I remember going over on my ankle a few times when the sole peeled back and no longer supported me when I transferred my body weight from one foot to the other.

    When we got the black and red boots (can't remember the name) that season NOBODY thought they were tennis shoes due to the colourway. They were very comfortable and the fit was just about perfect. However, that was the only season I didn't use the shoe Roger was wearing. The Vapors subsequently rectified the flaws and are the only shoes I use for matchplay.

    Very tempted to try out some Asics though, they look very light.

    Yeah they're awesome, even have a '10th anniversary' on.:) Unfortunately they're a bit narrow for me, have to do with a larger size and ended up with extra space in the toe area!

    Nice :)

    How come you have white grommets on your Sampras racquets, when they are all black if you look at the TW website :confused:

    WoW - I dig that, you suffer from a tiny bit OCD, like I doo :oops:

    I have two of the new Wilson Super Six Eco Pro Tour bags on order but also just bought 8 of these Vantage Lycra protection bags, for extra protection of my racquets, when inside the two Wilson bags - I may also buy some protextion tape for the grommets, like yours :lol:

    Racquets are meant to be used not looked at, but I still try to protect them the best I can.......

    [​IMG]

    They really protect the racquets well and makes it easier to take them in and out of the bag, when you have 8 racquets stashed away in the bag, the space gets a bit tight - these soft smooth lycra bags makes it very easy and fast to take a racquet in and out of the Wilson bag :)

    Yeahhhhh...a lycra rubber :lol:

    It also protects my Babolat VS nat gut strings - often when I take a racquet in and out of the bag, the strings sometimes touches the other racquets and this could lead to minor scratches on the stringbed - but not so when I use these lycra rubbers on my racquest.

    It protects the racquets string bed better than the plastic bags you see the pro stringers use on the pro players racquets before a match.

    Do you have close up pic or two of how you install the Babolat head protection tape on the grommets - does it look god on the racquets or what :confused:

    The only barricade Vs that dont look like a regression from Barricade IVs :)

    And to whoever cares, headtape is great but it gets pulled off if you hit the ground somehow, and you have to remove it to restring.

    Well they do a good job protecting the paint when you do hit the ground and I don't mind remove and reapply it for restring since these Babolat tapes are re useable in my experience. They are also great for adding 5 grams on the hoop for extra stability and power.

    Some of my shoes by the way:)
