Those are ridiculously good looking. Great job.
Better looking in reality than on the web. Still not a fan of the colourway, but if what you say is true, it's a nice steal anyway.
Just started using the Asics R5 - love the Navy/Poison V9 but jeez they last about a week on the hard courts!!!!
Wife made me toss in the trash about 8 pairs of V9s and 5 paier Bigshots from
Ended up selling like 10 pair of adidas and kswiss on the bay a few weeks ago.
How do the GR5s compare to the V9s? V9s my go-to (love the navy/greens but yeah, they evaporate so quick) and I love the GR4s but sometimes it's almost too much cushion. Wonder of the GR5s are any firmer or still super plush.
thanks to TW Happy hour! $65 is pretty good for this!
As you can see I have 5 pairs of the GR5......I love em (I didn't like the 4s btw). No breakin and super support with very very good comfort.....sizing funny for me I'm normally a 12 in Nike but had to bump up to 12.5 in the Asics.
Nothing is as nice as the V9s.......they are the greatest shoe I've ever worn but damn just don't last!!!
I'm waiting on a pair of the GR5 for clay and looking fwd to see how they feel.
On the web the orange looks "orange" while it's more a flashy pinkish orange (well... it's... crimson!, not orange)
beside this, the grey looked blueish when I took the photo (trick of the light, camera flash). I modified the hue a bit so it's more like the actual color.
What you see here should be closer to the reality.
Black laces look nice!
Just picked up a pair of Wimbledon Vapors. So slick. So much better than 2012s.
Could you email me some pics?

best value of a tennis shoe for only $25 from TW:
My humble small collection !
Now missing Wimby12' white/green/volt Vapor9, and I'd covered a nice color range to match my outfits
love the BFII!
Nice collection! When did Nike released the white w/ red swoosh vapor9? Is it NikeID?
Thanks, I have had them in storage for quite awhile. I believe they were a replacement pair I picked up down at TW. I used to bring my old shoes back to TW and get the replacement right there and also buy a new pair of shoes at the same time.
Great pics everyone, and if I can answer for raph, they are new ids that he received today. I only know because I looked at the "id" thread before coming into this one
Those are new for roland garros you can buy them at tennis warehouse either for clay or hard court
What on earth are you talking about? They aren't new for RG, they are Raph's ID versions.
Raph- great colors.
Not sure if serious...
Audjpy, duuuuuddddeeeee, sooooo much win! More pics? pwease
Oh my bad lol i thought he was talking about the orange grey ones MY BAD i wasnt paying attention
Great collection !
But hey, you have some V9 missing
Yeah only collect RF stuff, receiving 13'AO day v9 next week
Hi! I've found these ones on a shoes discount (-70%)
AIR ZOOM VAPOR III white/metallic silver in size 10,5
Those are from 2005/2006 I guess...are they kinda rare or not?
By surfing the net i've seen that they were James Blake ones, while Federer played with other shoes: which ones?
damn there are some serious collectors here!
Don't know anything about those shoes RF except that they look great What city do you live in? Have not been to Italy (or Europe for that matter) but would love to get there someday!
Here's how it turned out...
Great collection mate! Mind posting a photo of just the IW 2013 vapors
and other vapors
Do you buy multiple pairs of the same shoes or something so you can actually play in those?
There's nothing wrong with collecting, but they appear to be in near mint condition.
If my math is correct, the total cost of this collection is around $2159.76-$3119.76!!! (If you didn't buy any of these less than $79.99-$129.99)
78.66 each ;-)
I do wear they quite often, but i usually wear Air Max before im on the court, and change back to my air max after. Maybe that's why they look new.
Actually i know someone here are much crazier than me!
Pretty similar to my collections, but u have more~ ^^
I'm probably a bit crazier than you. For some reason it's fun to collect kicks.
Federer's signature Nike Trainer 1. Nike custom produced this exclusive Trainer 1 for Federer to train in while he prepared for the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in April 2010:
HC in the AM. Clay in the PM.
....kimguroo that's freakn amazing
Nadal doesn't wear Vapors though...
yeh why the F would you get vapor that say vamos rafa on em?
That's an absolute disgrace...
That is flagrant. You should get banned for that.
kimguroo, as cool as that looks, that's just wrong.

Sorry...trying to learn how to post photo, not having much luck
I bought the new Asics RG5 and the orange/black is hideous in real life(what were they thinking?). I do like colors in my shoes but I had to send these back on the spot. I also got the Yonex Power Cushion 308 which I think I will go with. I'm also considering getting a pair of Yonex PS 308 clay version since most my play is on that surface. Has anyone worn both pairs of the Yonex and what benefit if any is seen when wearing clay model while playing on that surface?
