Those are the ZV10s. From what it looks like, she isn’t wearing her Flare 2s anymore.
Was watching the match... she actually changed mid-match to the Vapors for some reason. She started out with the Flare 2s and I think something with fit/comfort compelled her to switch over. It was almost planned since she had brought the Vapors with her and not just another pair of Flares.

Ah I see. Well here’s the thing, I didn’t watch the match so I just assumed she wore the ZV10s the whole match. :laughing:

I was like, "What the?" when I saw the shoes next to her bench during a change over... then she called for a training (for taping?) or something and changed into the Vapors. Then she played the mixed match in Vapors.

I’ve owned and played in Foamposites and before. Good for basketball, not sure about tennis. Plus they’re a pretty heavy shoe.

Also I regards to the Nike Cage, I don’t see them making another version for 2019. The shoe is pretty successful and they continue to make new color schemes.

They did a Foamposite tennis shoe in 2002, the Courtposite. It was not very good, the foam upper was too stiff and it never broke in.

Not sure who would get this new hybrid as except for Nadal, Nike doesn't have much presence in the top 20 that would do a PE like this. Nadal is not into doing weird stuff with his shoes as he is so sensitive about his feet. They did a Nishikori's PE but that was more of a special color and not much retooling. Maybe Kyrgios cause he is into basketball? Dimitrov is already stuck on PE V9s, Delpo is stuck on old Cages. Maybe Shapo, but doesn't seem his style?

Kind of weird time for Nike.

It's true, Agassi has never put them preferring the Breathe Free II.
Then, vapor 10.5 should also be put on the store (Shapovalov is testing them).
 
Foamposite basketball shoes are pretty coveted as retros, not on the level of the Air Jordans but there about as good as anything Nike has. Would definitely see Kyrgios wearing them. Almost as cool as the Air Jordan III RF shoes from a years back..... but not quite.

I are onto something: they look like something straight out of the 80ies.

I have an insider info for the name of that shoe: Nike Anchor Tour.

:cool:

New color for GR7's looks awesome. They're up on TW now. Thinking the Sole Court Boosts might be a better fit for my feet, but damn if I wasn't tempted by these. Need to play more tennis though...

The Lavs are good. Wonder how the Court FFs will be... from what I remember, they're not as soft-feeling as the Fresh Foam.

On T......point, Nike shoes section, on the photo at the top of the page, there is a new shoe (black and white) that seems to be a Zoom Zero with a visible zoom air unit!

I have been playing with the SS FF and really like the shoe a lot. Fit, fast, light and durability has been ok. Just bought a revolution 7 and a Vapor X. I’ll see how these two stack up. I did buy a gel court FF and had to return it. I have wide feet and it was a major struggle to try and get my feet into them. I have been very leary of trying out the booty styles since.

Is the SS FF better for wide feet than the Gel Court FF? I'm thinking about getting one of these when my current shoe wears out

Hard to say as i couldn’t get my foot into the damned Gel Court FF without a major struggle. So I immediately said no way and returned it and didn’t try on the court. The SS FF is fine for my wider feet but was a bit tight in the toe box for first few outings and it was fine after.

For February should also be launched Nike Air Max Wildcard (write the name on google to see the photos) .... Maybe Del Potro shoes ??
It must be said that Nike is launching many new products this year! ... Even the clothing recalls that of the '90s and is differentiating the new products with the her athletes: Dimitrov, Shapovalov, Nadal, Kyrgios are wearing different garments, as happened in the 90s ..... But in those years had more winning testimonials :) ... Agassi, Sampras, Courier, Stich, Krajicek

The Wildcard is a take down version of the Zoom Zero. It's going to be around $100. ...meaning no Nike sponsored pro will be wearing it.

Looks like the ultrashot 2 has addressed the only things I did not like about them, the tongue and the heat. I loved the feel and cushioning in this shoe. If they are the same but with those improvements, I will be ALL IN!!!
