Here are my shoes
Don't keep much shoes, just use the and buy new ones.
Really nice work on those shoes as usual, the two best vapor colorways of the year IMO. I have both pairs as well
Some good stuff there
I painted the trophy and I don't think Vinyl film will stick to vapor 9.5 material.
it's possible but you need to send your shoes to me ^_^
Yes. I thought about embroidery option. Probably it might be close to real one but
Honestly If I spend extra $$$ to do embroidery RF logo, I won't use those shoes.
I don't collect shoes anymore ^_^
my point of customization is less money and less time to make it.
Probably material might be less than $3 and Actual time might be less than 40 min for those two vapors (Spending graphic work is excluded haha).
Since I paint Vapor 9.5 and LB, It looks closed to real one. I was a little surprised by the result too.
Also Fed's actual shoes has carbon fiber material. I thought about carbon fiber effect painting but passed it. Probably next time I might try carbon fiber effect PJ ^_^
Personally I like blue shoes but black shoes has more eye popping customization
because of metallic silver trophy. blue one is less noticeable with good light.
a picture of comparison between real fed and mine (Still think trophy should position more to right).
I'm not sure if I ever commented on your Barricades 2eighty but those Orange and Black ones are so sick. I was looking for this post of yours and while doing so, I found a post from Marksalot who has/had the same shoes. Damn they look nice. I got out of the tennis apparel/shoe thing for awhile so I missed quite a few nice things. I found these using the wayback machine and looks like they were available in mid 2012 along with some nice adidas "tennis" tees
Not sure if you guys saw the NEW Barricade 2015, but it is probably the most beautiful shoe in the market now.
Doing the annual cull and sadly having to say bye to a few of these (obviously not the VI's - never getting rid of those). Thanks guys, it's been emotional
Very nice work!
How have you done this?
Trophy was painted by air brush and I used heat transfer material at tongues.
It's the best way to do customize that way because it takes less money and time to do ^_^
What is this one? A version of the Oscillate?
Picked up the Djokovic 7s when they were on sale during Black Friday. Of course that appears to be the normal price now
Oscillates just arrived and they're amazing so I had to put them next to my fav color way of cages.
^^^agreed, definitely the best cage colour.
Is that your 'shoe rack of fame?' Love the V's
Nice to see this thread back in business! My favourite thread, but doesn't get a lot of love these days.
Here's a pic of my last couple of pairs:
Holy Crap Dood Nice SICK shoes
V's design was amazing. Best looking Vapor IMO. Too bad they did not last at all on the courts.
Here's my current mashup of collector and in-play shoes - I'd posted in the Apparel thread because I couldn't find this one:
Love those black/volt CBs, wish I could find a pair.
Thanks. And the shirt Nadal wore with them.
Pics? Don't remember. This was long before I started caring what they wore.
Shirt (he wore black shorts too):
Nice grass court version. I was too slow to get a pair.
Awesome. Nice collection. I'd love to have some of those oscillates.
Thanks. I hope Nike makes more so those of you who didn't get a shot can get some.
How are things up there? Ever getting back down here? We need to hit.
I might have to pick some up before they're gone! I hope they come with a built-in Sampras smash. I'm out in the midwes+ now but was just up in San luis Obispo last week. When I'm back in the LA area let's hit for sure.
Anyone got the new hot lava vapors? Torn between them, the blue/volt ones from IW and the navy/teal ones
The shirt was so futuristic for it's time. I found one today on 'the auction site for noble men' for cheap. No Rafa collection is complete without one I say.
Couple of my collections, used but still cool IMO:
I have the shorts! I don't think the color was volt though, they didn't debut Volt until 2012. I think the color was some kind of lime green.
Or his French Open 2009 polo!
Despite the loss, I still say that outfit was one of the best he ever wore.
The shirt and shoes were dynamite. Not to mention the pink and blue shoes he never wore cause he was ousted so early.
I have the polo, it's just a shame when I picked it up off the bay, I was still in the process of losing weight, so now it's like 2 sizes too big.
Asics Gel Res 6 Stealth. Great shoes
trying to complete my Rafa Olympic/Davis cup set. My newest pickup is the 2.3 CB's
Did anybody buy the NEW yonex Stan Warinka Eclipsion yet ?? and try it out ? any picture of that ?
You guys' shoes are so clean! I've never washed my shoes!
Use em till dead and chuck em.
New Barricade 2016:
is that rubber on the side of the shoe? that was my only knock on the 2015s was terrible durability on the sides
I'm not really sure what it's made of, but it's not rubber. It's sort of a plasticky, silicone-ish material, where the 7 solid circular pattern used to be in the 2015 version (the shiny circular pattern in the pic below). To be honest, I don't know if the new design is meant to be more durable, because my Barricade 2015 got stolen a week ago after only having it for under 2 months, and I don't recall wearing out the sides. In terms of the overall construction and fitment of the Barricade 2016, it's essentially the same as the 2015 (breaks in as quickly and easily as the 2015), so the changes are probably cosmetic for the most part.
I play a lot more than your average player so it's to be expected especially since I slide a lot. To give you an idea of how fast I wear out shoes I put a hole in the side of my barricade 2015s in 1 week and wore most of the outsole flat in a month. Hopefully the change means better durability.
Looks like the shoes for the Darkside....
Wow that's pretty extreme.. Sounds like you also play much harder than I do and at a much higher level. I do run a lot more than most to chase after shots but I don't slide. I thought Barricades are usually considered one of the most durable tennis shoes out there, and for me it's definitely much more durable coming from the Vapor Tour because that wore out much faster for me than Barricade 2015. I've also heard that the older Barricades were even more durable but I haven't tried them personally.
Indeed. I love that colourway. The pair that I had was of that exact colourway. I have to say, damn thief has good tastes.
