    Vapor 10 and CB 5.3 info

    A friend of my just emailed me saying the Vapor 10's and CB 5.5 will be coming out in Fall 2013. Apparently Nike want to launch their signature shoes in the middle of the summer leading into the US Open. Nike basketball does the same with most of the top line shoes have a Fall release.

    Take it for what it's worth but I thought I would share with the forum.


    Time will tell.

    Well, you've been pretty reliable with info you have posted in the past so I'm trusted to believe you.

    Still got a Fall of 2012 to get through before we get through a Fall 2013 :lol:

    So, I presume, estimate to see details of Vapor 10/CB 5.5 Wimbledon 2013 time?

    Yes I assume so, a white colourway of each shoe then something bright for Canada/Cincy/New York.

    Random notes:
    - Didn't Federer say he would be using the Vapor IX for "a couple years"? If they change the name, I hope they don't change the design too much. Now that all of the ugly, flashy colorways have been released, I've come around to this shoe (when they're on sale, of course).
    - Why 5.5 instead of 5.3?
    - Basketball season starts in the fall so isn't that a bit different from the tennis situation you've outlined?

    Thanks for the info, though.

    thanks!

    Vapor X (with a roman numeral X) just looks really cool.

    It's really just that neon green color that bugs me since it's being shoved down our throats. It had no place on those red or blue vapors from the start of the year. I actually think the purple winter Vapors are cool and even the pink ones for spring aren't too bad since they only use two colors. The US open color way is still king.

    Yeah, we will see. But it makes a lot of sense. The Open has always been Nike's showcase event. So what better place to unveil the new shoe models? Sort of like the way they use to debut Jordan's new shoe at the NBA all star game...before the Internet!

    I hear the Vap10's will be half a pound lighter!! And the CB5.35 will have an unseen 9 month durability. In fact, these advancements can be attributed to the BLX crystals found in the swoosh and laces of the shoe.

    They had everything except a narrow forefoot area that gave me blisters.

    You can now find them online. There is not going to be 5.3 or vapor 10's in the fall. Rafa is in bright yellow, looks like volt, a navy color, and white. Fed is in black, blue, and grey.

    You're not alone...the v9 is especially awful, IMO. I had to pull the trigger on a pair of ID's today...

    You're not the only one - I haven't seen any 2013s I'm that excited about.

    Post a pic in the thread specifically about V9 Custom Ids when you get them.

    No links will be allowed by TW mods, you will just have to look for it elsewhere.

    Doubt that... That would mean almost two years for a new Nike tennis shoe. It would also mean that the 10s and the 5.5s will have to be groundbreaking.

    I don't think they'd be released in the winter. 2 or 3 big tournaments and then more than a month where there is no player to advertise them.

    You're exactly correct. Night shoes are red/gray and day shoes are white/navy

    Mate, coming across a bit condescending of late- maybe tone it back a bit? Not everyone is as constantly on the ball
