    So true. Some of the best pictures I've seen in a while on here. Can't wait to get mine soon.

    I'm not sure they're going to get any cheaper. Since Nike jacked up the prices to $135 full retail price, out-of-season shoes are going to be ~$90-100.

    I called several Nike outlet/factory stores, and they're all selling for $99.95. :evil:

    Well with wishful thinking, we may see them on Happy Hour. You probably know already, but TW had the orange ones up a couple weeks ago. We might also get a 25% off clearance sale. Fingers crossed...

    It's your Mimimalist approach and the lighting.

    35/136 = 26% discount. You should get 6 months out of them. Seems reasonable.

    You can wait - and risk not having your size. Just do it. :)

    When I called those Nike outlets/factory stores, I was calling for the red AO 2014 and orange IW 2014. And those are still priced at $99.95 at outlets/factory stores, and we're deep in the US Open swing now.

    I don't think there'll be anymore discounts coming from Nike. :(

    You highlighted 3 word - and completely lost the context of my post. Other 9.5s have come down to 69.99. But the odds of getting your size will go down greatly.

    The managers at the Outlets sell what Nike sends them. At the price Nike tells them to price them.

    You mean going to Ross, Marshalls, and other discount retailers?

    I haven't had luck at other discount retailers, such as Ross, Marshalls, and etc. And I've given up going to those department stores.

    You mean the 69.99? No, Nike outlets. I've seen them and there have been other posters who have too.

    There are some 9.5s under 99.99 right now on the big auction site.

    The Vapor Courts for 60 here onTW are great shoes if you really refuse to budge on price. White/black, nice look. If they get the same mileage as the City Courts I've used when I didn't like any of the Nike styles you'll be very happy.

    I bought 4 pairs of Vapor 9 Purple Flame Pack for ~$70 at a Nike Outlet, but I completely forgot how long I had to wait for it.

    I guess I could wait a little more, but the toe box treads on my current batch are gone and I'm probably going to see another layer soon.

    ^^^^^ They're your feet. Saving $30 and screwing up your feet - I know what I'd do.

    Roger will forgive you...

    Haha, I wore down the toe box of my last batch until I saw another layer. I'll be fine, but the end is near. :(

    Agassi never wore that colourway/pattern if I recall correctly. They had a pattern with lines instead of the fade which McEnroe wore... The pixel one is a new thing right?

    Someone told me that Brad Gilbert wore the pixels but I have no photos of that, so who knows.

    Andre wore the Air tech Challenge in the "hot lava" colourway, there are a lot of pictures around of that but I'm no expert on old Agassi gear... thats your arena right?

    I do love these shoes though, I think they are aesthetically really pleasing to the eye. I'd try and get a few more pairs of the grand slam releases but they seem to sell out in minutes!

    Hmm Team, that kind of looks like raphmode's floor. Did you break into his house to take advantage of his "minimalist approach and lighting" and take your own photos :p

    Oh yeah and I got my mint clays from TWE. Will have to post 'em pretty soon

    Haha shhhh don't tell him. Nah, raphMODE is the TTW GOAT when it comes to taking pictures of their shoes/apparel. Always enjoy seeing his pictures.

    Yeah post yours, this thread could use a little more activity. I might get another pair of vapors soon too so I'll post them here as well :)

    I got the Tour Grey/Crimson on Friday and I want to also get the Tour Blue/Hyper Punch so I'll wait until I have all three pairs (assuming I get the TB/HP ones) and post some pics then:)

    Also really like the new Djokovic B7s. I liked the last two colors they had as well, not counting the red, white and blue although those weren't bad either.

    Nice collection Geoff!

    The one in the middle on the left, is that a Savile Row with a green swoosh?

    @Rhino, sweet pic, you must be loaded :cool:

    I'm about to pick up a pair of the blue USO day vapors and another black/hyper punch pair. Too bad I missed out on the zoom vapor AJ3 :evil: Saved me some money though, way too expensive now with the prices on e bay.

    The 2 pairs of AJ3's was a bit of an accident. I hit up two separate friends who were in NYC at the time, thinking that one might come though, but they both got lucky. I didn't have the heart to tell either of them that someone else had also copped a pair for me so I had to pay for both. Oops. E bay prices are ridiculous.

    What size are you?
