    Is Gym Red a real red, or is it more pink? It's hard to tell!

    Can people pls use a scaler for their pics? They don't need to be two screens tall to demonstrate your design.

    I thought "Gym Red" was more burgundy than actual red.

    Also, a friend of mine thought the "orange" looked red.

    And why aren't there shades of purple?! I could do some real damage if they had purple... :(

    To the person that's purchasing 16 pairs @ $165 ea.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much do you make a year to have a shoe budget like that? I'd like to get there someday..

    Well, I've narrowed it down to two choices. Think if I do bite the bullet on price I'm gonna go with the cool grey inspired one's, although that white midsole is going to get destroyed.

    Borrelli, I like the second one better, but you could get the regular silver and blue ones and they are close to that color scheme. The first one is more unique. I'd go with that.

    Do you guys think I should go A or B?

    It's so hard to use the "White Lime" in the upper without turning the entire shoe into a bucket of primer paint...

    This folks might just be the most feasible approach. Will they actually let you spend your voucher on a ID product? You just have to deal with wearing 4.3's for that long which isn't very pleasant if your feet are at the very slightest wide.

    How much narrower are the 4.3 than the 3.3? I had 4 or 5 pairs of 3.3s and they fit ok.

    Hmm, but you had to pay more than the voucher was worth to get them.

    Tax and shipping so $62+a voucher ($130) is about right.

    So my whole total for the vapor 9id was 192$ with tax and shipping (tax like 12$ shipping was 15$) and my voucher was for 130$ so i used that and had only 62$ left to pay with a credit card

    Oh and concerning the 3.3 and 4.3 narrowness i personally thought that the 3.3 was more narrow than the 4.3, so the 4.3 should feel a bit roomier than the 3.3's

    I agree with it. 4.3 felt better and so much comfortable than 3.3.

    That's the default Nike sample isn't it? I personally like it, great way to blend the colors together.

    Anyone else find it a little annoying that the "fingers" and the body of the shoe have to be the same color? Think about how many more combinations you could make? A white shoe with black fingers or vice versa?

    Amen, Nike needs to let us customize the sections of the shoes with more detail like how the 2k11s were able to be made.

    +1

    Also, they need to add a red color sole for clay. Why would they have it available for all the other surfaces (even grass) except the only one that's played on red dirt?

    Space Jam inspired. I think I may stick with the BRED inspired ones I made a couple days ago.

    Four of the most heinous designs imaginable imo. Flouro yellow and pale yellow don't go together very well as it is but adding another colour makes it even weirder.

    Notwithstanding, most/all of those would fall foul of the Wimbledon dress code if Federer's shoes from this year were anything to go by compared to the retail colour-scheme.

    Clearly "Wimbledon Men 1" was clearly inspired by the actual Wimbledon release, just my interpretation of it with some slight variations.

    What is the Wimbledon dress code? I thought it allows "some" non-white colors right? Something ridiculous like 5% non-white color allowed?

    I think the simpler designs like yours are the ones which look best.

    Too many people here seem to lack the eye for colour-matching. It's one thing to juxtapose ideas but, generally, less is more when it comes to creating aesthetically pleasing colour-schemes. An overbaked colour scheme is the first thing that turns people off items of clothing/footwear generally.

    This for example would seem a far more pleasing Wimbledon-intended balance than most posted imo. It's simple as anything, but it wont date quickly and isn't visually antagonistic.

    I think the hardest color to use is their "White Lime". It's very hard to pull off that color without turning the shoe into a bucket of primer paint.
