    Whatever you were getting with the Ballistec's, cut that by about half, and you'll get an idea of Vapors.

    I haven't been able to play much lately, but I wore mine for the first time this past weekend during a match. They performed well, but it appears that the tongue isn't as long as the retail versions.

    Probably but only wear special occasions.
    Slider.... I estimate about 4 weeks max or 70-80hrs or even faster.

    For me the Vapors didn't last even 4 weeks. I mean the thread would be gone, but even more worrisome would be the lack of support (they just gave in on me, b/c I'm heavy - 100 kgs - and move aggressively, not sliding).

    Eventually I've saved them for clay only...Where I don't need so much support either, since I can't really stop abruptly.

    Very nice. This was actually one of my first designs when I started playing around with the tool. Simple but they look great. Well done.

    I tried to do a Mac Attack with just the fitframe and the swoosh black. The gray is a lot darker than I thought it would be. I should have gone with a colored vent. It looks purple here, but in real life the gray basically looks black. It doesn't match the rest of the shoe.

    Like them !
    White swoosh would have been better, maybe (but I understood you tried to do a Mac Attack)
    Black vents which looks purple are just awesome !

    So the "vent" color extends onto the rest of the mesh in the upper?

    Interesting, so maybe you CAN end up with a two toned upper like the retail?

    Or is it just the lighting? Because we haven't seen other Vapor 9 ID'd with two toned upper.

    depends where you are in relation to the factory. Mine took around 2 weeks. It does get slightly irritating though

    Ever occur to you to resize your pictures so we can see what we're looking at?

    You can resize your pics and repost them in your posts above again. Would be helpful.

    Obviously it occurred to me. So I did resize them immediately after posting so I could edit my post and replace the big ones. However, I don't have editing permissions in this subforum (strange, as I have them in other subforums). There's nothing I can do except acknowledge what happened, which I did.

    The only thing I hate about the Vapor 9 Id's aside from the cost, is the fact that they only have limited colors. I'd kill for them to have colors from last year, especially that Anthracite Grey.

    Thinking of getting something along these lines next up. Simple and uncluttered.

    Nice, but for $180 I would have done something different

    For $180, I would wait until they offer more customizing options.

    I asked and they said they had no plans to offer multi-colour options for the uppers/tongue or more options for the mid-sole. That said, who knows... have they ever expanded the options on earlier tennis iD shoes?

    Meh. I think they look so good in person. And I've gotten a lot of compliments (I've never had anyone comment on my shoes before). In any event, I don't think one color scheme over another makes a shoe worth more than another.

    That's very discouraging news. Thanks for asking, at least I won't be waiting for them to expand the options.

    Look at the Kobe System shoes, you can customize the hell out of those shoes.

    Hell, you know it's sad when your typical running shoes has more customizing options than a $180, supposedly top of the line tennis shoe.

    Le Master, if you like them that way, and choose that on purpose (maybe you're wearing just black outfits), this is YOUR choice and YOUR money ;)
    And we have to respect that as far as we're not concerned.
