    Thanks. A few minutes after I posted, I saw Azarenka's outfit and figured those LB's went with it.

    Not digging the LE colorway with the splatter. Liking the standard versions much better

    Anyone have any inside knowledge on the price these will be? Specifically wondering about the Lunar Ballistecs.

    My attraction for the LBs went down after Rafa pulled out from the draw. Money saved!

    They sure don't look like it. Same price as the normal ones, and aren't sold out at nike.

    No, whilst the title of this thread said "Limited Edition", we all seem to be discussing the night outfits and it looks like they will be widely available.

    Why do you interpret that to mean they won't be in limited numbers? Nike sells things at the USO and other tournaments at limited rates but the same not marked up price.

    I could be wrong but don't remember the Fed white Wimbledon with orange bottoms being a higher price. The only shoe I remember being higher was the RF287 (still bitter :) )... Someone who remembers, please let me know.

    I think if anyone really wants either shoe, you better start clicking...

    So, these are not sold as "Limited Edition", but everybody think it would... Well done Nike :)

    Do you think there will be a real "Limited Edition" exclusively sold at the Nike booth then ?

    I rang Nike customer service, and he said he couldn't tell me categorically, but it should be on "sometime today or tomorrow".

    I find it strange that TWE have it advertised and "to arrive 28th August" yet Nike simply don't have it on the UK website (especially when it's available on the US).

    I'd understand if the UK didn't have ANY of the US Open night stuff, but to be able to order the polos and shorts, and to have the knowledge that the Vapours clearly are available (in the US at least), makes me slightly confused!

    I guess it's back to refreshing the browser!

    On a side note.... I pre-ordered the RF 97 Autograph just now!

    Already on the auction site for $300. They don't seem to be particularly limited though.

    Obviously not US Open "exclusives" or very limited at all. The auction site speculators are gonna eat these.....

    I'm not sure where people are getting the "limited edition" tag from. No one has said they are limited edition, people have just assumed that because Nike have released a "night" edition, it will be limited.

    Nike haven't said if it's limited edition or not. I'm not particularly bothered as I like the colours, and like the lower price point compared with the LE stuff.

    Nike US customers can get 15% cashback using Discover card. Plus it's sales tax-free week in Connecticut so I saved another 6.35%.

    No official source. But I believe the 1st or 2nd website that posted early pictures said 'LE'.

    The night editions sold out faster in many yrs in the past. Maybe that's why some thought they were limited. When they were just cooler designs.

    I agree. (Except for the 'paint splatter' which doesn't bother me that much) - the designs are very nice.

    Still hoping for a Black/Hyper t-shirt at the USO...
