    They are Nike Courtballistec 1.3, Australian Open 2009 colourway. Its worth noting that Nadal didn't wear these shoes during AO '09, he wore Breathe Cage 2's with a similar colourway.

    Hope that helps.

    That because the shoe is no longer produced. It was replaced with 2.3, which was replaced by 3.3, which was replaced by 4.3 (current ones), which is also going to be replaced in early 2014. That's beating a dead to the bone horse man. If you like the colour, you might look at the Babolat Propulse 4. They ride lower, but are not as durable as the Court Ballistecs 4.3 IMO.

    I have those shoes. I mean they do look cool (reason I bought them when I found them on sale), but performance wise the 2.3 and 4.3 are definitely better. Even the 3.3 was slightly better.
