    But no RF287.

    Still, an incredibly complete collection!

    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

    Here's my current rotation from the last year or so. Oldest in the back.

    [​IMG]

    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! :confused:.

    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.

    Good times.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Oh man.... the Breathe Free's in the middle were the best!
    Nike should reissue those like Adidas did the Barricade 5.

    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

    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.

    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.:?

    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:(
