    ^Hope the Yonex are good... have confidence in Asics on the other hand. Although the Yonex are pretty well rated, just not popular but they say they are really good shoes.

    I though the flamed balls were for US Open... Very confusing Vapors, nice custom work but very confusing.

    I'm not stating that it's bad, but it looked.... odd.. :|

    He should apply to Nike's Tennis design department.. They need fresh new minds who know how to make clothing with personality and originality.

    kimguroo definitely should get a position for Nike, the latest Nike designs are really weak compared to 2009-2010. :(

    No doubt about that, but he needs to work on his taste. Those are ban worthy.

    I just started playing in 2012...but, I play 5-6 times per week.

    13 pairs is unlucky...I need a couple more. Been wearing the new vapors and solution speeds. Both are fantastic. As was the 2k12...one of my faves.

    I got mine a few weeks ago! Nice dark navy color, and the green is unique. They feel like stable running shoes, which is great. They're, as expected, very quick and provide ample support. But, I don't expect them to last several more months. They outsole grip is already flattening and rubbing out. I've had them for about 4 and a half weeks-- I give them another month, month in a half at most. Kind of pricey for about 9 weeks of lifetime, but I don't regret buying them. The performance is great.

    Jordan 1s?! I regret getting the 4.3 instead of Fed's Olympic Vapors. Nothing can go wrong with the classic white/red combo.

    I also regret never getting a pair of those Olympic vapors. So clean looking. Though they'd dirty up quick.

    One time...ONE time. I am going to play a tennis match or tourney in a pair of jordans. Just have to figure out which ones I want to destroy.

    I replaced my Asics Gel Resolution 3 (Yellow) with Yonex 308 Power Cushion Clay and Babolat SFX. So far I really like the Babolat as very comfortable out of box. Yonex shoes will need some beaking in (width) before they get as comfortable as Babolat.

    Nice! I was practicing in my hyperdunks and the traction was gone in a matter of 2 weeks!

    yeah they are. I was thinking about getting these since they are meant for outdoor asphalt basketball. the bonus is they are called the Nike Max H.A.M.

    and if H.A.M. stands for Hard as A MotherF'r then sign me up!

    He bought them all out :)

    I would have done the same with the IW 2012 colorway, unfortunately I had to pay for classes. :(

    Definitely not the big collection that some of you have. I do enjoy knowing that I got all of those for free though.....

    Now that's variety. How do those NB's compare? I liked the 851s a lot before but have seen mixed reviews on those updated ones.

    I think the 996 is a nice improvement over the 851. To me they offer better support and don't get that "thin soled moccasin" feel that the 851 did when they wore out. They still don't last anywhere near the 12 month warranty but they are such a nice lightweight match day shoe. As far as variety, I seem to be able to wear just about any shoe comfortably. Plus I won't be picky when I'm not paying for any of them.... :)

    ^ How are they looking now? My friend got the volt vapors in April and they are holding up pretty well. He isn't a toe dragger and he said the traction is still great. He's only got the vapors and another pair of nike trainers for his rotation.

    The white midsole has a layer of dirt (not caked in dirt but it has some evidence of dirt). Surprisingly the shoe is holding up well ever since I got it in March. It's balding but it's still performing amazing. 4 months in and it's still going strong.

    Just bought these last week at my local racquet shop. Thought it was a pretty lucky find.

    You should be. It's the only Vapor I know that has the RF logo that's sold to the public.

    thats a superb find! still regret not getting a pair.. thought they were mehh at first but they really grew on me...

    probably also the last shoe that he'll win wimbledon in... nike probably hoped those limited edition orange soles ones would be pinnacle but it backfired..
