    I want to get the Vapor 9 Tour Shoes in Atomic Red. I haven't seen the shoes in person, but in picture look really nice. However, a friend told me that they are more pink than red and really flashy. Certainly I don't want to distract my opponents with my shoes.....any opinion about the shoes?

    its really neonly red in person. its the most eye attracting color that i seen. why not use the atmoic red to distract your opponent? it certainly gives you the advantage of speed and flashy colors.

    Definitely lighter and brighter than the pic. Probably the colour you'd get if peach, pink and red were mixed. Still have a while to pluck up the courage to wear mine as my Barricades still have some life left in them.

    They're definitely not for everybody. A couple of friends of mine have them and I play with them weekly.

    Let me tell you, if you are the type of person that gets distracted easily by things, you will get distracted by this. I don't really get distracted by these types of things; the shoes don't bother me at all. They are very bright and like a neon red-pink color. They don't look too bad, just really bright.

    If you're worried about your opponents, play it safe and get the white/ navy/ grey vapors. I'm thinking about getting a pair myself, they are the same price as the atomic reds btw.

    They look great imo. I love bright colored shoes. Too bad not everything in my closet goes with them. And I don't have the money to buy more than one pair of tennis shoes.

    I wore the asics solutions that were bright green so these are up my alley. Especially if you wear all black socks and shorts most of the time. Do you like them?

    Awesome. I like. All black with those shoes will look sweet. Should have mine later this week. I buy any colorway V9 when I see them on sale in my size.

    Bummer I missed them at this price.

    Love those blue/grey ballistecs, so I'll wait on those to go on sale.

    Another great pair I got last year were the USOs from 2012. Blue and Red. Really sick color way for the V9. I'd love the all blacks, but they probably will never be on sale.

    Got mine in..they are super bright and the color changes from a nice red to an orangish color depending on the lights. I honestly am digging them Its nice to have a pair of loud shoes, and since I buy whatever vapors are on sale, I usually wear the weird color ways.

    Neony-red would be a good description. A slightly deeper version of Nike's Infrared, if you're familiar with that shade.

    The picture quality isn't the best, but at least you can see how much the shoes "pop" relative to all the other colors on the screen!

    They only went back up to $89.95 - still a great deal. And available in most sizes.

    +1. Especially after putting in a pair of white laces. I recently wore out my first pair; have another new in the box to use one of these days.
