Nike Spring 2013 Predictions/Hopes/Wants Thread
 
Around this time every year I start a early Spring thread for members to discuss their predictions, hopes and wants for the new upcoming tennis year.

I will start.

Federer:
- Mint Green crew with black shorts, black bandana and mint green shoes. Very sleek looking.
- It will be the 10th Vapor so I think Nike have something special planned.
- Hoping for a Day/Night outfit for Australian Open 2013.
- Red polo for IW/Miami

Nadal:
- A true Aqua (think Miami Dolphins) mock neck zipper. I want Nike to put Rafa in something other than a crew.
- Return of the Capri pants with a different approach. Even if it was for Spring/Summer I would love to see Rafa back in some Capris.
- I think Nike are going to stick with the .3's so expect Rafa in a 5.3.
- Purple for IW/Miami

Del Potro:
- Bright Fushia crew.

Post your predictions/hopes/wants and we will see who guessed correctly early June.

I would love a retro version or re-release of the vapor speeds like what they did with the breathe 2k10s. Also a zipper crew or another henley would be awesome.

I just want federer in a dark (Dark Navy, Black, etc) polo with pinstripes. I would also kill for some maroon.

As long as they don't make Vapor 10: Clown Edition, I'll be down for some new Vapors.

ductrung3993 04-15-2012 02:58 AM

My no.1 wish would be the Vapors to be more durable. Yes, this sounds ridiculous but I have only used vapor for the last couple of years and there were times that I afraid to move a lot because that would destroy the soles lol.

Another unrealistic wish is Nike's gonna use embroidered logos, I have had too many swoosh-es came off already!

mint green for aus open WIN

Since Nike is pushing new foamposite crap, I'm sure we will see a new foamposite tennis shoe.

I'm pretty sure that the Vapor X will be very special. Exposed flywire like the Lunar Glide 4 or Flyknits? Probably encorporating hyper fuse still.


I don't know why but I see a new line replacing the CBs.


For clothes PLEASE put Fed in green so babolast can stop predicting he will wear green for spring/summer/fall/winter etc. ;)


Should we see pics soon? Last year we got the Vapor 9 and CB 4.3 pics in june.

Haha I have a feeling the Fed will finally be in green!

What are your predictions/hopes/wants for Spring 13?

Ico 04-15-2012 07:58 AM

Federer in red. Nadal in tennis ball colors. Delpo in plain Dri-Fit crews. Berdych in a polo with a single line design either going vertical or horizontal. $5 price hikes across the board.

FEDERERNADAL13 04-15-2012 08:07 AM

Fed in all Black for AO, a return of Darth Fed :)

For Dubai/Rotterdam: simple white and black

For IW/Miami, Fed in Red/white or Black with red accents

Vapor 10's without the stupid lime green accents that are on the current model. Vapor 10's that revolutionize footwear with the lightest shoe to ever feature a 6 month durability guarantee :)

Seems like the last 3 years from Nike.

What about Nadal?

ArliHawk 04-15-2012 08:42 AM

Some Nikes that actually fit my feet.

I'm glad you asked :)

Rafa in a very very vibrant orange for AO, but solid orange, no pink/green stripes

For IW/MI: black and yellow, USO 2010 esq, but with more yellow and less black.

CB 5.3s: 6 month durability, nice vibrant colours, maybe some lunarlon in it (lol), or some of that new nike foam stuff :)

Rafa has been in Orange/Red 2008, 2010 and 2011. I really hope Nike wont him in those colours.

What do you predict for Del Potro and Berdych?

T-Rex 04-15-2012 11:49 AM

Here is my list for Federer:
Gorge green polo (like Wimbledon 2011) or what ever Nike call it with white short maybe black short and black wristband and shoes for night matches.
White polo, black short for post AO. Nike has put RF in that combination since fall 2008 i think.
Some bright color crew/polo for Miami football blue perhaps.
For the Vapor X: no lime'cyber/volt accent please. Would love to see the highlighted heel design again like Vapor 4 to 6:twisted:

Delpo will probably be what he is often: conservative crew colours, maybe a calm blue, or a nice yellow. nothing crazy though.

Berdych: I don't really like him as a person, so I'd like to see him dropped in favour of Putting more money into the possible Djokovic deal :)

coolkoala 04-15-2012 02:05 PM

purple (nadal wtf 2010) henley for Fed please :-)

The current 4.3s have lunar? Haha foam material isn't new in any way...

LOL! You know what's going to happen: Nike will plan a green shirt for Fed - and Fed will retire before he wears it.

Said it before: Nike needs to stop making Fed's gear so dull. a) add some cool venting on the back like the mid-2000's; b) platinum, gold, or silver.
