    Size 10 actually! Got them for $35 shipped. I have a pair of Vapor 9s still to wear, but couldn't pass them up. After wearing a pair of Vapor 7s since September, the structure and stability of these shoes are a welcome change. V7s weren't that bad though. I just like the 2.3s a lot more!

    Cheers!

    All were bought at sale prices. I refuse to buy them at full retail, need to save money to spend on restrings

    i am guessing baby hagrid probably hates the courtballistic series. wow. I know that if i got a lot of shoes i would try to diversify. Maybe get a nike lunar vapor tour, a barricade, an asics gr4, maybe even a propulse, and ofcourse some court ballistics,

    Im a bit of a fan :) im not a huge fan of the GR4's or the Barricades. I did consider the Black/volt V9T but the prices haven't dropped enough for my liking. As for the propulse models, i really like the red propulse 3 & the new black 4's but again, the prices need to come down.

    I love the white accents. The black is a tad overpowering.. which is why I hate the black midsoles. I have a pair, and my only dislike is the black midsole haha.

    Get them- you won't regret it.
    Have a pair in 11.5, and as it has been noted before, the lunarlon provides a marshmallow-like cushion. Not the most durable- but they look nice!

    I find these to be a bit more wintery or holiday shoes for the indoor season. These just seem out of place on the spring clay

    I noticed that since the Vapor 9 is released, nobody really talked about the Vapor VI anymore...
    Did the V9 managed to surpass V6 and become the new GSOAT ?

    feeling wise the vapor 6's are great... low to the ground good support and traction... there is a couple hrs to break in though...

    the vapor 9s are great from the get go... more cushioned though... plus/minus everyone is different...

    i got to say the xdr sole on the 7/8/9 is ALOT better than the 6s.

    gonna have to rotate the black/red vapor 6's out of my tennis sessions... as i wanna keep them for as long as possible hahaa... the white/gold i got to say are my favorite now... i cant bear to wear them!!

    That's what I'm thinking... I feel that they are playing for social status or something... My shoes never looked like that after a day of playing...

    HAHA for my case, I post pics of shoes before I start wearing them on court! they definitely look disastrous after a couple weeks of use tho!
    that being said I do have a few pairs of shoes that are brand new in cases where I'm waiting for my 6 month warranty to arrive so I can buy a new pair!

    What "sucked"? If you're talking about the 4.3 you'll find the majority of us disagree. They're cushioned, ventilated and supportive.

    I apologize its my opinion I have owned four pairs three of them the lace holders broke and the shoes wear out to quick. They also for me just do not feel like my foot is locked in.

    Well then, you could have said "they sucked, for me". I have owned over 6 pairs of the 4.3s and I do agree that the dynamic fit breaks, but they are one of the best shoes IMO out there (besides the V9 which is my fav. shoe of all time)

    I agree with bosssauce, no one should buy the red 4.3's. Leave them for me to buy them. :twisted:
