    incredible, 2nd best colorway to the first neptune blue/green ones. I might be late arriving on this train but a hell of a shoe design (in my opinion).

    How the hell did they acquire a pair? Nike is going to be pissed.

    I saw some of them and usually the sellers were big sellers, so they got some pre-release product to sell in their store on 4/1 and they decided to sell it earlier?

    Just type in "Nike Courtballistec", it should be the tea/turquoise color. Going for like $70 right now.

    that's white and teal, not black and teal :confused:

    Still looks good though :D

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Sorry the inside... dots? and sole are teal/black. obviously you're right, should have said white/teal, or white/teal/black.

    Do you think that Nike sends there shipment to stores on 4/1? Most places actually get the most of the apparel and shoes a couple days early in order to do inventory etc..

    Crazy that the prices of the bay are better than a lot of places, and from what seem to be legitimate sellers.

    Beautiful!

    They remind me of Rafa's 2007 French Open shoes.

    Teaching pros and people with Nike connections get stuff early. If Nike cared (as in it actually affected their bottom line) they could easily find out who and cut them off.

    Those are good looking.

    No I know that Nike sends them the shipment probably a month before the release, but they aren't supposed to release it until Nike tells them in this case it was 4/1.

    Those look like women's shoes. Nike has really messed up with the ballistec colorways this year. I say this from working in a tennis shop and sales on them have been absolutely terrible.

    Might have something to do with Rafa not playing in the beginning in the year and they are not getting as much exposure?

    The new Turquoise ones or the other horrid colorways released this year? I think the White/Volt/Black(indian wells) and maybe this brand new one will redeem the CB's.

    The Vapor 9's have produced two bad ones already, the black and pink, and possibly the black and green ones for the clay season.

    Nike has sort of dropped the ball this year, last years were pretty good. Especially liked the Scarlet CB's and Vapor US Open editions.

    Yes, all of the above...flame, teal, pink, orange, volt. Nike, please produce some men's shoes. Maybe I'm just not comfortable with my feminine side...

    Naah most of the customers coming in don't watch tennis at all. The colors just stink. That orange was way too loud for anyone over the age of 15 and the white ones are just plain ugly.

    I can kind of see that I've been surprised how little white/black/blue vapor 9 and cb 4.3s they've made.

    I know it's only 9:23 on the east coast, but where are the new Nike products? April fools?

    The Grey/Crimson CB's coming later this year look dope though. Much more neutral and easier to pair up then the turq's imo.

    Then what is your suggestion for the colorways?

    ID and spend $180 for an all BLACK basketball referee or an all WHITE nurse shoes?

    These turquoise CB's are dope. I'll definitely be using one of my vouchers on them.

    I don't know about you guys but I like the Turquoise CB's, it's a new color for the CB line.

    I love the way the turquoise cb look, way better than what's been released so far.

    I initially didn't like the black and pink but the more I look at it, the more unique the shoe looked and ended up getting a pair. I think the blue and green ones are pretty nice.

    I love the b/p vapor 9s.

    These turquoise CBs are not looking good at all. I dont think it will be a hot seller. I think if they put the volt green separation in them(like the blue '12 AO version) it would look great.

    I have to say that the turquoise CBs so far are the best of the ones released this year.

    It says Paris 2013 there so that's what I'm assuming.

    Yeah TTW mods will take it down, apparently Nike doesn't want photos of upcoming and nonreleased lines on forums.
    But you're fine :)

    to some poeple i guess they look great. but to me, the color way reminds me of those plastic, clog looking gators that everyone wears these days.

    Good point, can't understand why everybody is afraid of a little color. The turquoise is one of those colors that goes with everything because it doesn't match anything.
