    I honestly don't see the problem with large hi-res pictures being posted. They're not too big to begin with and they're clear. If they're blurry that would be a totally different matter...

    I feel Nike has been on fire with their tennis outfits in 2012-13.

    I'm pretty sure those are the white/obsidian-metallic silver ones, but the white part has 'yellowed' over the years.

    I think they're the first ones, just with a little bit of yellowing.

    can't believe no one's posted pics of these yet... absolute beauties, probably my fav colorway for the 4.3's! even has the bull logo and rafa on the tongue haha!
    what a good finish to an awesome line of shoes!

    I like that color, however, that Bull logo and Rafa ruined the shoe...

    Well they are not Federer custom kicks. Quite well done in my opinion. People out there are getting really good at this!

    Thanks Rhino, you are obviously correct they are the next best thing. Wish I was that talented to take credit for the customization!

    This might be a dumb question but I really have to ask.
    Is the tongue longer on this particular grey/blue CB4.3 like how rafa's ones are (since they also sport the bull+rafa logo like his)
    If it's longer I am so getting them

    No these particular CBs still have the same short tongue like the previous colorways.

    ah some front design changes and $160+ too much in my opinion but understand people who love to collect limited edition. It is similar to people stock when they get great deal on tennis gear.

    Honestly, I'm in love with this colorway. Too bad I don't like the "Rafa" and his Bull logo on the tongues.

    Why do u have these v9LE with green swoosh? I know Federer is wearing the exactly same model with yours. But i have seen many pictures the one that weare buying are supposed to come with a black swoosh....

    If you see the shoes in person, it's not that bad haha.

    Got it from TW. I was the first person to order one of two 7.5 size then customized myself. It's not perfect but not bad ^_^

    Yes. I made it myself.

    The teal looks real nice. Might pick that up instead of the red-swoosh vapors. But it has the RF logo...

    Finally pulled the trigger on a pair of ID's. I'm very happy with the quality and how they turned out. Now to see how they hold up on the court!

    thanks mr eko. yeah they look pretty similar to the french open design. i just inverted the colors of the laces and mesh panels. i think it breaks up the shoe a little more. i was thinking of doing the swoosh in the volt color but ultimately went with white to keep it simpler.

    dkotek, Does your pink vapors have any evidence of fading in the ankle area? My polarized pink vapors are faded a bit in the back.

    The "fade" option for the mesh vents turned out great!
