    Is there a shoe from the past that you would buy if it were reintroduced? For me, if they reintroduced the Gel Resolution 2, I would buy 10 pairs.

    Anyone else want to see an old shoe make a comeback?

    Adidas a3 Prevail. Never has there been a more perfect shoe for me. Loved the fit, the looks (owned multiple colors),the performance, the quality. Had about 6 pairs before they were discontinued. Always liked them better than Barricades, and they were a little cheaper.

    Would you guys pay a small premium for the shoe? I would for the GR2's.

    Vapour Speeds. Were they the blue and white things Roger and Lleyton wore for a couple years?

    Those asking for the B5s -- Have you tried the B7s???
    I wore the 5's recently after wearing the 7s for about a month and could not wait to take them off... 7 is at least a step above the 5s and a few steps above the 6s and the rest of the line

    Those were the Air Trainer 1, a classic! A couple of years ago, they did an Air Zoom Tennis Trainer, which I loved. To bad they don't make those again.

    Nike Air Oscillates. Specifically, the Jordan colorway (red/black). Also love the classic white/black and the clay-specific model that was released. The only trouble with this model was the length. I had to wear a full size larger.

    Aside from the Oscillate, I'd like to see the Barricade 3 again.

    Vapor V

    Nike Air Oscillate (although I've never tried them) I really like their "retro" look... don't ask me why

    It's funny OP made this thread, I just started looking through the new Barricade line since my V's are starting to get worn, and I'm sad I can't get new ones. It seems others like that shoe as much as I. The overall score for the V was higher than the VI according to TW.....

    Care to delve a little further on the VII's?

    Here's the reviews for the V's, VI's, and VII's in case anyone wanted to compare:

    Geesh, there's only about 3 non-Nike responses. I've been off Nikes for years because they never worked for me, whether tennis shoes or running shoes. Maybe I should try them again.

    Holy crap those were heavy. They were like wearing huge basketball shoes. Super comfy tho.
