    Thanks for the nice comments. In the mock-up the white vents and white foot frame appeared more opaque, so I was surprised to see they weren't so much in person. My intent with the foot frame was to extend the white of the midsole into the upper, and I especially wanted to mask the "V9" short iD. I wanted that to be a subtle thing, not so prominent. Oh well. However, I do enjoy what the off-white tone does for the overall design.

    PhotoBlue: Yep, my bad. That request was intended for mrtrinh.

    aznhippos: I like your design.

    Gianni_RF: Totally unintentional, but ha, yea. I was channeling Jordan somehow.

    Raph: Thx dude. Vents are white. Looking forward to seeing yours.

    Hang on, does your design supposedly have a white fit frame? (the plastic support strip around the shoe above the sole right?).

    Man, mine will look terrible in that case. Had I known it was nothing like the white of the midsole I'd have chosen another colour.

    Yea, supposed to be white. Turns out it's fairly translucent.

    What color is your upper Bobby?

    Good info. It will be interesting to see as more people post pics.

    I'll have my black/blue pair next week. Thinking about a cool grey/red pair now.......

    Interesting to see live pics because of these datails... knowing how the final version is really helps, before making an order !
    Now we know the foot frame will look grey over a black or grey upper !

    As for the subtle "V9" logo, I thought the same: I would choose a white logo on white frame, or black logo on black frame : I know it's on, but nobody can really see it.... But I won't do the white/white thing now I know it will be too visible, thanks to you.

    Didn't ordered anyting yet.

    Grey upper also, white fit frame/midsole. Blue trim/outersol.

    I wont be overly impressed by the looks of it but, it could be exaggerated by the photography. Might look fine on the feet.

    You can always return them to a nike outlet for a full refund.

    Thanks Guys. For some reason my iphone makes the laces and mesh look purple. They are true grey when you see them in person. I noticed that the lining on the iD's doesn't have the swiss flag detail that the retail ones have.

    Really nice shoes, Airwolf. So the vent are the grey ones, and not the black/white fading ones , if I understood correctly .

    Sorry for the confusion. The vent is the black to white fade. I was referring to the mesh in the toe box.

    Hey man, I understand that you (bossauce) like to respond to things and etc.. But I don't think it's necessary to post 15-20 times a day with 3 word responses(such as I don't like, cool shoe, how is it) and respond in almost every thread. It kind of gets annoying when I log on to the forum and go here and see that your username is plastered on who recently posted. If your going to post with such simple answers, it would be better to tone down how much you post.

    Just my suggestion and I'm sure many posters would agree with me.

    Really love them !!!
    classy and detailed at the same times.
    Would you mind posting a picture of the other side of the shoe so I can see the plastic "vents" ? As you chose a faded black>white, I want to see how it looks with a black + white plastic.
    Thanks ;)


    I posted more than 3 words.
    Is that OK for you? ;)
    (just kidding)

    I agree with you on this one, is it just a way to up post counts? Back on topic, those Mac Attack V9s Airwolf posted look superb. I wouldnt mind a pair of those bad boys.

    I got mine today. Yes they are white, but my shoes don't get as dirty as I have a couple in rotation and only play on hard courts. I also wear them to work as they are comfortable and stylish.

    Great shoes. I would even buy them if they were Nike's retail version. As for the laces, I would say if you wear white socks, go with the white laces; if black socks, black laces.

    So it's the solid volt as opposed to fade?

    I like my Vapor 9. Yes, it is very comfy. But I try not to wear it other than playing. Outsole wears out too fast.

    Well I sit at a desk most of the time and walk around on carpet, I don't think that's going to wear them out. It hasn't yet.
