    That black/white Breathe Cage I has to be the best looking tennis shoe that Nike has ever made.

    I really like them. And they match my colossal inventory of black nike stuff perfectly.

    Just got back from hitting tonite, and was playing from within a cloud of alcohol and jalepeno pepper fumes. My sweat was burning my eyes. I forgot what it was like playing the next day, and sweating it out.

    On the plus side, I was torching the ball pretty well, so maybe there is something to it.

    I hate it when sweat gets into your eyes, it stings soo bad. Also that salty taste as you wash your face off.

    I usually knock the crap out of a ball hungover as I really just don't care. It's when I care that I truly suck lemons....:twisted:

    Ya they had white/blue vapors at my store.

    But the cages fit me better and have 6 month guarantee, so it really is a no brainer for me.

    Yeah, they do. They are a tad bit darker, not much than the pic. The flash really lit up the shoe.

    Outsole, I would think they are since they have a 6month warranty thing.

    THe actual shoe, well they were made differently from the first and they are lighter. More cloth or fabric I should say was used to make it more comfortable and light. Toebumper looks good. The blue color on the front lateral side, looks like it could get messed up pretty fast if you drag your feet alot.

    I tried on a couple of pairs of the older Babolat shoes, and they seemed quite short to me. Are the new ones aswell?

    Like the length of the shoe? They do run 1/2 size small like said. The new ones to seemed no different. Once I got the 1/2 size up thoguh, they felt really good.

    The toe box is a tad bit larger than before and the material is mesh so they will be more comfortable than the rubber on the previous model and will have room to expand.

    Yeah, for some odd reason, the cage size was weird on me. 9 is way too small, then 9.5 was way too big...

    The Vapor fits the best, and I would like get the white/blue, too bad there were none over here...

    Hey, how is the fit on them?

    If you could compare to BFII or Cage that would be awesome.

    I can compare them to the cages. The ballistecs run a little bit longer. I wear a 9.5 in the cages and I bought a 9 in the Ballistecs and they are still a tad big, but an 8.5 is way too small. I will take a pic of them side by side in a minute here. They feel more stable and comfortable to me.
