    Mine. The 'white' fit frame strip isn't exactly white, more like milky/translucent. Overall am really happy with the colour combo. The blue and grey work well.

    Will post some better pics later.

    All vapor ids look amazing! I envy you guys. We dont have the actual nike id site but it can be made by a third party company.. The bottom line for the vapor ids here is ... drum roll... approximately $290 AU.. So sad.

    ^^^really? you must have a microscope to see the fine details? I swear the comments that some just blurt out. SMFH

    @BOSSSAUSE and GINO- a friend of mine does custom work on sneakers and I wanted to challenge him by doing a replica. The RF logos were basically small patches that are similar to club patches seen on soccer jerseys. The swiss crosses and trophy are vinyl decals which are applied.
    Yes, these are the off the shelf/store bought retail shoes. These will all be worn and driven into the ground.

    Nice, but - if you don't mind - what's so special about hiding the letters ? Sorry for asking but it look intriguing...

    Bobby, those are pimp. I am a huge fan of the gray uppers overall, and I would have never thought of that color scheme with them. Why you gotta scratch out your dedication? We won't kill you for putting your girlfriend's name on your shoes. :)

    The fitframe color is an issue. Yours and the guy who tried to do a Mac Attack had the white turned gray. It still looks cool though. My only disappointment on color choices is that the midsole should have more than black or white.

    Yep, the grey looks great imo. It's also less prone to looking dirty quickly.

    The fitframe is a little annoying. Had I known it would be like that I might have tried something else. The problem is it doesn't come in grey and blue would have added too much colour to them imo. As you say, having limited midsole options reduced the options for colour matching.

    Re: scratching the name out.. ha ha, I never thought of that.

    I reckon Nike could make the V9 iD the stuff of legend by offering the coloured inlay parts in patterns, not just solid/fade as they have done. Imagine being able to choose checkers or stripes.

    Maybe they'll update the options in the future.

    Any issues with getting a black outsole on these in terms of marking up courts?

    I actually like the look of that better than if it was pure white.

    Note to anyone considering buying these shoes regarding width sizing.

    I posted here (post 192) that I'd spoken to Nike about width sizing and clarified the issue.

    Now that my shoes have arrived it seems the Tour Fit is slightly narrower than the retail version - enough to be noticeable but not enough to ruin them for me. The difference is confined to the back half of the shoe, not the forefoot. Thought I'd post a heads-up for anyone who doesn't like close fitting shoes.

    Sounds like a trick question. They're tennis shoes...shoes for playing tennis.

    I'll play in mine for sure, that's why I bought them. Just gotta wear them around a bit first to loosen them up (see post above).
