    They shipped mine today. They should arrive at a friend's house in Orlando on April 3 (the order was made on February 23)

    I know that some Nike rep told someone that the "tour" fit is the same as the vapor 9 that you can buy at your local tennis shop, but are all you cats that have received your id shoes of the same opinion?

    They're close but I think they may run just a bit big compared to the retail version. I don't think the difference is as much as a half size...

    No, Tour Fit is slightly narrower than retail version on the V9 iD shoes. It is supposed to be the same according to my dealings with NikeiD but has come out marginally narrower. It's like 0.5cm so the difference wont be an issue for most people.

    The explanation between width sizes they give on the website is terribly misleading. They refer to the True Fit as being a wider, "standard" fit which implies it would be the equivalent of the standard retail fit. However this is not the case. The Tour Fit is still the closest to the retail version - albeit slightly narrower as I mentioned above.

    Their width explanation fyi:
    "This tennis shoe is available in a Tour Fit for a secure, locked-down feel on the court, and in a standard True Fit that's slightly wider for extra room."

    Any indication for the delivery time inside Europe guys?
    Is this 6weeks thing true, or it could be less?
    I'm afraid my current vapors won't last until then..

    Thanks for clarifying about the widths. I have played in two pairs of the IDs (both Tour Fit) and two pairs of the retail version. IMHO, the IDs run bigger by a small margin. While I agree that the difference is not huge, I feel that I'm a 10 in the retail, and 9.5 in the IDs.

    Your experience may vary...

    If only that was Blue Glow instead of Neo Turqoise, I'd probably order some, even for the 180 bucks they cost.

    They do look nice. I am mindful now having had my own and seeing others than the fitframe is slightly translucent. I wonder how that shoe would look if everything was the same but the upper was grey.

    I'm about to get another pair anyway and was thinking of doing a blue upper.

    Anyone chose grey vents on white upper ?
    I'd like to see how it looks (if the vents are subtil, or too dark)

    Be careful ordering red vent and fit frame on the V9 iD. I ordered a black upper with red vent and red fit frame and red laces...all 3 of the reds are very different. The vent is maroon-ish, the fit frame is raspberry-ish, and the laces are bright red. They look awful...I'll be returning them.

    I'll try to post a pic before I ship them back.

    Sorry, I forgot to take a pic before I shipped them back to Nike today. Take my word for it...they looked awful. I wanted to like them since I waited 6 weeks for delivery. But, they were just hideous.

    You're right. All "reds" are not the same.
    Maybe i'll post a pic later.

    Awesome news. Will be ordering another pair this week then.

    Edit. From the looks of it the foot frame colours are in testing. They have added grey though (the bottom one) which they didn't have before. They've also removed the dark grey option for the swoosh while adding a couple of new colours.

    Some sweet colors I'd like to get :)
    (the middle one is a nice alternative to the RF blue/green French Open V9)

    THEY ADDED MORE COLORS?! Well it's about time, maybe I'll revisit this... :twisted:

    Also, if you go to the foot frame, there's a bunch of "Dummy David White" color boxes. I can only assume the foot frame is getting a color expansion too. :)

    Seeing the pics of these that have actually gotten theirs, when they get numbers or letters put on the side, it's a lot bigger or stretched than it is on the site...

    Did you guys that got yours already know that, and was did it still look good to you when you got them and saw that?

    Yep, it looks like all they've got there now are new swoosh and vent options - which are all highly feminine additions.

    They were just appealing to the female market.

    What they needed to add was more midsole colour options. That would have opened up the alternatives for design more than anything imo.

    The "short ID" letters look good to me. I got the letters on all 4 pairs.

    Yep, the real ones look nothing like this on the website. It's a bit disappointing I agree but better than nothing.

    Finaly received my first Vapor9 iD !!!

    I wanted a clean and simple look, that reminds of the classic white/red/black Federer shoes (USO09' Vapor 6, London10' Vapor 7, etc)
    After I hesitated a lot, and asked you here about several designs months ago, I finaly chose this one. And I'm just really happy/excited with it !!!!!!!

    I ordered black laces but I have to find red and white laces so I can switch from times to times :)

    I can't see that the black laces work in such a simple design. White is what you need.

    Black laces add a little contrast to the shoes : red swoosh framed by 2 black element (foot frame and laces). It works well with a black short, for instance.
    But with a white short I'd probably wear white laces, for a cleaner look. Sure.

    Those look fantastic. Personally think black laces are probably better in that shoe for the contrast.

    Now the challenge will be keeping them clean.

    Nice to see you finally made your mind up! Looking good though, simple yet effective. Getting the fed vapor iv vibe from them

    2nd that. I'm glad you were able to get the Nike ID selection to work for you. But with such a limited selection on customizable parts and colors available, I just can't see myself forfeiting $170 for a pair.

    But your design is very clean indeed.

    In very clean designs I think the rule should be that the lace matches the tongue, but if you have a colourful design then anything goes.

    This is an almost white shoe that already has adequate contrast with the black and red, so anymore just doesn't work.

    Thank you.
    When you look at the shoes in themselves, I think the black laces bring a good balance and contrasted look.
    But anyway I will rotate black/white/red laces, depending of what outfit I'll wear (black laces with black short, white with white short, and maybe red sometimes)

    About cleanliness, sure it will get dirty but not that fast cause I rotate with other shoes quite often.


    Thanks. Yes it's $170... that's why it was important not to hurry and think about a good design. I took my time but the result is great.
    The customizable parts are indeed limited, but in my case I wanted an all white with just red and blacks details. So it was fine.
    If it had been possible I would've maybe chose a black inside, instead of white, so there is a black trim between the heel and the sock, of you know what I mean.


    Yes. "Tour width".

    ^ Right !
    I hesitated between "black swoosh / red foot frame" or "red swoosh / black footframe".
    When I saw your picture months ago, I though it was good this way. I modified your pic with photoshop by making white vents and black sole, so I could see what it would like.
    Your picture helped me a lot actually ;)

    I also think they'll look good with black or white socks.
