Just saw these good looking shoes at TennisWarehouseEurope! What do you guys think of them? I think the colorway look really good!

Regurgitated Roland Garros 2012, no?

Tyler91 09-24-2012 02:59 PM

Hmmm...I'm not really feeling that colorway...

bandyman35 09-24-2012 04:29 PM

I love that CW!

JDMasFCK 09-24-2012 06:36 PM

meh... they don't look that bad...

Rhino 09-24-2012 06:45 PM

A colorway he will never wear. Nothing special really.

KoolTennisKid 09-24-2012 09:07 PM

NOICE!!! why doesnt the US get any of those other CW's?

Yveskim89 09-25-2012 12:39 AM

ive seen TW US display this shoe , that was September 10, 2012 .. while i was viewing nike shoes... i was planning to buy this shoe the next day but cant find it anymore.. Maybe someone from TW will explain or just delaying the issue of the shoe due to slower sales of the 4.3 ( nadal is out )^^

Not a big deal since he is only playing poker:)

I prefer the black with volt soles. But I am really looking forward to the orange version for the Australian open.

Who cares if Nadal will never wear this shoe? If you like the show, buy it.

are 4.3s gonna continue on through 2013 or are we getting 5.3s sometime next year?

The 4.3s continue per the catalogues. Seems like Nike are following the Barricade trend of a two year run. I prefer that.

The poll makes this rather love/hate. I think they look okay, but I wouldn't wear them as they're too flash.

To each their own, but too flash? Sure, they aren't all white or all black, but these are pretty subtle compared to most CB options throughout the years.

Only too flash for me. I'm a lowly 30 year old 5.0 who makes enough errors that I like my shoes to blend in. Currently rotating the White/Grey 4.3s (bought for a great deal) and the white B7s. The Wimby colorway for shoes gets me every year. I still have a new pair of White/Hot Lime 2.3s and some black 2k11s for clay, but that's as far as I'll go. The Volt 4.3s are not my favorites.

Now, none of this means I think it looks bad when others wear colored shoes. I'll wear colored shorts or shirt but shoes, well after a mistake I look down so that's why the shoes must stay plain. :)

I can respect that. I personally like these shoes as something different, while still looking pretty classy and not over the top. Usually CBs are either one extreme or the other.

Great but nothing will match 2.3's

I'm going through my 2.3 and planning to get 4.3 next. What's a big difference, again?

The sock-like fit and the far tougher lacing system are the key things on the 2.3s. Other than that, the 4.3s are very comfy shoes with even better ventilation.
