    I loved the 4.3's. Bosssauce, some comments are best kept in the head unless stated IMO, IMHO, and whatnot. LOL

    The shoes are pretty awesome. Nice traction on court, and they held up for my indoor soccer game last night. No slipping, but maybe a bit heavy. Definitely a tank of a shoe. and the colorway is simply awesome :)

    I like the 4.3. I never had an issue with the lacing hook. I didn't make it tight. I make it barley enough that I locks my foot on place. More comfortable than the barricades.

    Maybe the guy just likes tennis shoes. You'll find a lot of people around here who like tennis shoes.

    These Vapor 8 lasted me for about 1 year and a half:

    More or less.

    Here are some samples of what they look like after 18months.

    And I cycled them too, so all of them would have more or less the same wear.

    I'm reminded that the Vapor 8s were not very aesthetically appealing. I think you have my two favorite colorways of the Vapor 9 in your collection. I remember despising the original ones with unnecessary volt accents, but some of the newer ones have been quite nice.

    Fist and second V8 in the bottom raw : obsidian is kind of "navy blue".
    If you have a pair still in good shape, drop me a mail please ;)
    Thank you.

    You mean the 2012 Australian Open Clown Editions? :twisted: I remember I hated all of the colors/designs of the earlier Vapor 9 up until French Open 2012 came around. While most people were going nuts about the Vapor 9 since the initial release, I was going: "Huh? What am I not seeing?"

    As for the Vapor 8's, I enjoyed them thoroughly. I actually loved the low-key design scheme. That's why I had no problem using them WELL into the life of Vapor 9, when everyone else is already rocking them.

    As for the colors I got, The "Purple Flame Pack" were my favorite and I got them for $75 each (please check the "Lucky me, nice find..." thread). I always buy off-season shoes, it's a lot cheaper and the hunt across the nation makes it challenging. $130 a pop is too rich for me.

    Nike had made a boys version of the 3.3's but the gr version came with the racing stripe on the heel and that dumb 3.3 logo. These are US mens size 10

    Ironically, there was someone(sports4eva115) here, who posted a lace swap on their shoes not knowing that these were the original idea before nike decided switching the black laces to the public. Remember, Rafa didn't play at last years US Open d/t his knee injury. Well, these would have been his night shoes.

    Got the new blue ballistecs launching april 1st for 75% off retail. No idea what the colors next season are, but it's like a aquamarine color with darker swamp green and black. Totally sick shoe.

    How the hell did you get a shoe 75% off retail, let alone a shoe that isn't officially released yet... :confused:

    On top of that, pictures! :)

    I had to give up on the Ballistecs. Too narrow for my feet so I'm back to my first shoe love: K-Swiss. These felt great from the start and don't leave my feet in pain after a couple hours of tennis. I'm hopeful it will help with the Achilles tendonitis too.

    I like them, but am trying not to overdo the atomic teal thing. Perhaps they don't really go with anything, so they really go with everything?

    Instead of picking those up, think I'll just pick up another pair of the total orange when they go on sale.

    you can do it haha. be patient with cutting.
    it's vinyl decal film for logos except tongue.

    I made it myself. I have a cutting machine for my tennis apparel lines. usually I make customize logos for my customers who want to put their own logo to clothes and hats. A few weeks ago, I was boring and inspired by one of forum member's customization fed shoes. I knew I have some leftover materials so I tried to make my own version of RF shoes. It turned out better than I expected especially tongue, I used heat transfer material. at that time colors were black so I decided to buy some other color materials. I redo it yesterday. I might be able to make other shoes such as US open but I can't find those shoes anymore in my size. Actually I've never seen selling tennis shoes like vapor 9 before (most of them sold out). very impressive.

    I like to cycle through shoes as opposed to wearing one pair constantly and it never fails when I find something I like it's discontinued a week later.

    These shoes are really impressing me with their comfort. I've played in them twice and my foot feels so much better. If you have a wide-ish foot I recommend them. I'm pretty excited that I was able to play last night and didn't feel any Achilles pain and the soreness in the morning was very mild.

    Afraid to wear these. Don't want to ruin them! Got a pair of feather ii as well and might just use them since they're uglier. But I hear they're great. Anyone tried either? I have to wear men's since ladies do not fit my width.
