Durability of 2K12 vs. Vapors?
 
My friend who's a 2K user says he's worn down his soles in about 6-8 weeks and I'm just curious, are Vapors around the same time or worse? I'm currently a Barricade person so I'm not quite sure of how speed shoes last durability-wise.

Probably about the same to be honest- the 2k's have the same soul as the old vapors, so pretty similar really, give or take

I think the Vapors wear down a tiny bit faster.

durability is awful for both shoes.

+1

2K's are cheaper so go with them unless money is not a issue.

Here's my view on them, in 5 weeks, I've gone through 1 Pair of 2K12, 1 pair of Vapors and I'm now on to some 4.3's, so far the 4.3's are holding up really well

But nobody was questioning the durability of 4.3's. They're much more durable but not as comfortable as the 2 shoes in question.

Are the Nike 2K12ís going away next year?
 
Anyone know? Does Nike have to make room for that new airmax cage whateverthehell it's called shoe?

IMO, the outsole of the 2k12 is more durable than the V9. But, the V9 is much more comfortable. The V9 is an easy choice for me. Too bad about the flame color way (is it 1989?)...
