man you can feed on family :shock:
Wow, that's awesome-'p have you got the white/black original vapor 9's? Surely it's a complete set if you do?
But no RF287.
Still, an incredibly complete collection!
Ah, knew I was missing something. Still, mighty impressive!
why would someone need so many tennis shoes?
do you use a lot of them for casual walking?
Don't see the volt or grey/orange (clay) either. Still great stuff though.
Ha. He must be a professional casual walker!
But really, collecting tennis shoes is fun. For a while anyway.
I feel collecting Vapors are more fulfilling than collecting Jordans IMO
My gosh. Epic one, Jeffrey!
do we know if Audjpy is a celebrity?
Which Vapor is this? 4?
Wrong. Vapor IV 2006 US Open.
Here's my current rotation from the last year or so. Oldest in the back.
Looking forward to using the B7 clays this summer. Adipure pros were ultra comfy and had the best grip, but are basically shot, and the V7s are completely worn (but just can't seem to throw either of those out, heh! .
I still use the 3.3s to practice in, talk about durability. Vapor 9s are nice, but 2k11's are still my all time favorite shoe; perfect blend of comfort, stability and speed. Only using the Vapors and Breathes for match play currently, trying to nurse these as best I can. Tried the 2k12s and Air Max cages, but neither topped the 2k11s, for me.
I tried the B8s recently, but too clunky. CB 3.3s were way more comfy, perhaps heavier, but lower to the ground which makes a big difference for me, I guess.
Or get a nicer apartment...and maybe furnishings...
just came in from the mail after sending in my Cages
Just got these for tennis season. After wearing the vapors for the past 6 months and the 4.3's for the 6 months before those, i have to say that this is a nice and familiar change.
Also, shoes didn't come with a warranty card. Do I need it, or is the receipt enough?
^^^ you definitely need the card... ask for it!
I love that adipure. Simple design. Looks great on and off the court. I wish adidas made more of those.
Here are my Prince Rebel Light Speeds. They were recommended to me by the user "Ramon" for people with narrow feet. I feel in love. I have 8 total, but only 7 are pictured. I have another pair of new clay courts in black/orange but they are back at my apartment. (home for spring break)
The four left most shoes are hardcourts. The three right most shoes are claycourts. The two in front are the the ones currently in usage.
might as well post this..
Agreed. By the time I got it, they were on the way out, and never to be seen again. They did a great job of blending old school full leather comfort with a stable and high grip outsole. The looks and comfort are why I'm still holding on to them, they look fine even casually with jeans.
^ Clean V9 look ! Nice one.
Oh man.... the Breathe Free's in the middle were the best!
Nike should reissue those like Adidas did the Barricade 5.
we need a petition and TW's support to bring those Breathe Free. i wont mind dropping my vapors and going back to the breathe frees
Thanks raph! I'm happy with how they turned out. I don't know if I'll ever do another pair but we'll see
And these Breath Frees are the replacement on a 6 month warranty. Back when I was playing more regularly, I would go down to TW to replace the shoes and then buy a new pair in the store so I had a few pairs (random shoes) backed up.
Just got two pairs of shoes for the first time, how do you guys recommend cycling? At first I was thinking of just using the cages once the ballistecs wear out, but I want to experiment using both. Cages for matches, Ballistecs for practice?
I wonder why they discontinued it. I dig the minimalist design of the line.
How's the durability of the adipure's? Oh how I wish I can get a pair
got this from my mail and turns out to be my late birthday gift.
Unless he wants to spend a couple grand getting them on ****, there's no chance of him getting those.
And with shoes that nice, you'll never want to actually wear them.
Wow, those look sweet! Someone must love you very much
Yeah, that would be my girlfriend. She's an Adidas fan while im a nike fan. Don't want to make her mad if I don't wear these. Lol
An Adidas and a Nike fan...dating?!?! That relationship is doomed to fail!!! I don't know how you guys have kept it together this long. You're doomed, doomed I say!!!!
Maybe she is trying to get you over to her side. Be careful!:shock:;-)
Don't worry, we weren't in extremes about a sports brand. We just give each other our perspective brands and ended up like it lol. I given her the vapor tours for her birthday and she ended up liking it. Wore my barricades for rallying and ended up liking them. No problems yet, though bound to happen
Nadal is still using this shoes. he just painted it like new Lunar model. Nike has to re-release the old ballistec because all Nadal fans will want to be just like Nadal and will not switch to new lunar ballistecs.:?
and Where is the pics of new Yonex shoes ??
We are waiting for you to post them, bud.
i have not bought them yet. I am thinking very very hard about this due to extra weight and heaviness, i might become 20% slower which would be a killer
I hear yonex shoe will make you 22% faster though, so just get them and share us the pics already
Vapor 9 updated collection:
I really salute you my friend...
Rf Exclusive 287 shoes has a better quality then the others?
This is Japanese version of SHT 309
All of these Vapors...
That looks so awesome. (Thanks for the edit for a smaller picture, haha.)
Have you worn the previous versions before? If so, I would love to hear how the SHT 309 feels compared to 308 or the Power Cushion D.
