    I picked up some new Vapor Darth Ved Black Vapor 6's recently online, and also just purchased a new pair of 9's. Anyone out there play in both? Which should I use first and any huge differences? Pros and cons?

    My answer would be to wear both to break both shoes in. Then when you break both of them in, you can choose which pair you like better and save those for matches while using the other for practice. I would recommend this because both of those shoes fit pretty differently.

    The vapor 6s are the only shoe I have thrown away that I didn't wear out. They hurt my feat that much. I tried everythigh to break them in. Just a bad fit for me but others love them.

    The vapor 9s are cool. I have 4 pair already. Really comfortable and pretty supportive for a light shoe.

    My 9's killed my feet at first, so I think I'll stay away from the 6's.

    The 9s are the best shoes around...
    I did experience some foot pain in the first 2-3 hours... After it has broken in, it's perfect...
