Current shoe sizing on Nikes assistance please!
 
As a guy who likes the retro look of the current Nike Vapors and Ballistecs, I have a quick question. I currently play with the Adidas Barricade 7s in Size 8 and use them for both practice and match play. As I have a few pairs, some are for practice and others are fore tournaments, etc.

My question is, which size in the Vapors and which size in the Ballistecs should I try?

The qualifiers are as follows; 1) I live in an area where I basically have to order everything tennis related. 2) In previous Ballistecs, the shoes were very narrow and had very stiff soles. 3) I've heard/read that the current Ballistecs are really narrow and to consider a half-size bigger. 4) I've never worn any of the Vapors because I didn't like the style.

Before playing exclusively with Adidas when the Barricade 6s came out, I would wear Nike shoes that had really flexible soles. In the recent past, I bought the Ballistec 3.3 and found that because the soles were very stiff, I could only wear them casually.

If the current shoes (Retro Looks) aren't suitable for me, I'd still like to wear them casually...

Thanks for the help.

Which Vapors? They all fit differently.

I have a pair of B7's, CB4.3's and V9's all in 10.5. the Vapors were slightly wider and the CB's were narrower but I didnt feel they were enough to go up/down half a size

Nike usually runs a bit small. I'm a true 9.5 in most brands but in Nike running I'm a 10. Oddly enough some Nike's like the vapor's fit true to size, the 9.5's fit me perfectly.
