    Those are so amazing! I still need to get a pair. I hear they fit like a comfortable running shoe. Would you agree? Love your avatar! RF for life! <3

    Thanks, these were on a final sale from ******* sports since they initially came out for Roddick in this summer's Olympics. I wear a men's 7 1/2 and find that mid west usually carries those sizes when you're looking for the closeouts of certain models. Everything else I can find at TW.

    Yeah I'm more of a CB fan now, but those vapors look awesome. Will have to get a pair with one of my vouchers.

    I wish I could combine the fit of the Vapors with the durability of the CBs.

    a dream that everyone in the thread wants. If it happens, its gonna be a best seller. I wonder if Nike take the outsole of the air max cage and replace the vapor's outsole with that.

    Only our hope ^_^
    I don't think Nike will change anything for vapor 9.
    Honestly, never seen selling like vapor 9. Almost every styles sold out before heavy discounts.

    Probably some people have air max system cracking issues for 4.3.
    I used 4.3 twice then both pairs cracked then I don't buy anymore 4.3.

    If they do that it could mess with the lovely lithe feel. Honestly they need to leave this shoe alone. It's a perfect speed/light/breathable option. So good that I completely accept the durability issue. And from a business standpoint, it's a hot selling shoe that burns quickly and they don't have to give away two-for-one with a warranty. Would be shocked if they changed it much. If they did I'd have to load up.

    Great collection. Four of the very best colorways. Don't care what anyone says, the pink is great. Just picked up the navy/white/greens myself.

    Hey I like the black/pink ones, I'm just waiting on them to go on clearance so I can get them for less than full retail price.

    Strangely enough I found that my CB's durability hasn't been that great. I've had them for about 2 weeks and the toe has already gone completely bald. Maybe it's just the fact I've been playing on hard court more lately. And say chi sin lo- the pink vapors are $100 now.

    Thinking of getting the black and pink, but having second thoughts since im playing on a clay court. Its hard to clean the mesh type.

    the clay does build up in the mesh. too bad they didnt release the sl version. those would be prefect for you.

    Great collection. My only suggestion - put a pair of white shoelaces in the obsidian/red ones.

    I just picked these up at an Adidas outlet for 69. I don't think these were released in the US. They are great shoes. Feel a lot more comfy with the insoles from my 4.3's though.

    Got my replacement pair from Nike the other day. The Yellow isn't as bad as TW's picture is, it's a tennis ball yellow color. I retract my previous statement about this line's earliest release, it's not bad!

    I received new vapor 9 and made AO Fed shoes ^_^
    As soon as my wife saw the shoes, she thought I bought the shoes for her. A little feel guilty about it haha.

    Sick shoes man.

    Really want to do these to my 2012 FO Vapors but have no idea where to begin. Would you be interested in doing a step by step tutorial please? Would be a huge help surely not just to me.

    Honestly without a cutter machine, it will be tough but not impossible though ^_^.
    Also material is key. Actually I didn't like new pink material. I should keep same material which I used before :( much harder to work with.

    I thought about order vapor nikeID but I have more fun with this method of customization and save $$$. If I get other vapor9, I want to make some rafa version of vapor9 haha. I already made some. Need to find good deals for vapor 9.
