You mean the 2012 Australian Open Clown Editions?
I remember I hated all of the colors/designs of the earlier Vapor 9 up until French Open 2012 came around. While most people were going nuts about the Vapor 9 since the initial release, I was going: "Huh? What am I not seeing?"
As for the Vapor 8's, I enjoyed them thoroughly. I actually loved the low-key design scheme. That's why I had no problem using them WELL into the life of Vapor 9, when everyone else is already rocking them.
As for the colors I got, The "Purple Flame Pack" were my favorite and I got them for $75 each (please check the "Lucky me, nice find..." thread). I always buy off-season shoes, it's a lot cheaper and the hunt across the nation makes it challenging. $130 a pop is too rich for me.
