I wonder if Rafa is planning on wearing his Premier shorts for the spring?
Ever since they cancelled the WTF gear everything has just gotten weird...
still can't buy the shorts from Doha, and now he's not even wearing the ones they have out for him.
Not to mention the shoes. I want those damn Pinkish Courtballistecs.
I'd buy those all day for $130.
What's the deal with Nike lately.

Nadal wearing the white Lunar B's today in practice ahead of his match with Thanasi. Looks like he's thinking about whether to pick between LB's or CB's for R2.

Nadal is so superstitious, he'll rock the same CB 4.3 to get his opponent to tank and retire.

Just received the Rafa Crimson trainers.

TOTALLY different colour to Rafas. These are PINK, BRIGHT PINK, like, French open '08 pink.

Not 100% sure, may send them back for the white ones. Was looking forward to the crimson red!

Have you seen them in person? I just received them at work and everyone I work with commented on how luminous pink they are!

Are you sure you have the men's version of the LB? The men's version is laser red (not crimson btw).

You might have the women's version of the LB, which is pink.

They look very much like the second colour, but the box says "laser Crimson" and the string bits near the laces are black, indicating the mens shoe.

I will take photos later to demonstrate, definitely pink, not red however. Does anyone else have them?



Infact they're close to that.

I saw them at my local store, and also agree that the front portion gives off a pink vibe. But if you want to argue against pink, I guess I'd go with flourescent red.

Easy easy, im not trying to argue here.
Im just suprised that Marshredder saids it looks like 09RG pink
He asked anyone else see this LB, and i just say what i thought

Haha yeah not looking to cause an argument guys!

I just compared the shoe to my FO'08 top and the Fed WTF '10 top (very pink and very red) and its halfway between the two, I'll post a photo later tonight for comparison.

I think that with a red outfit it could be argued red, but with a pink outfit it will look pink.

Funny how it looks the identical colour to the FO top when looking at the front, and the exact as the WTF top when looking at the back...

where can i buy this white shoes of rafa from the pics from sinner????????
i need them so badly!!!!
Stop asking these ridiculous questions. The shoes are custom made for Rafa ONLY. They are not shoes that will EVER be available for purchase at retail.

Between shoes and shirt, Edberg pimping the hell out of Barricades. Just nice to see those legends hitting balls, even if doing so halfway.

The Rafa crew is kickass.
Best thing Nike put out this season IMO.

Identical to what he's wearing...
 
also i love this jacket Roger wore for Brisbane PC,such a nice red colour :)

Guys, i just received the jacket and it's the first time in years that the RF logo isn't on the same place as Roger's jacket... Retail RF logo is on the left wrist whereas Roger's has the logo on right shoulder....

Yeah I do, I'll get a shot later. Its identical to the one he wears though, no differences.
I'm no Nadal or Nike fanatic but it's pretty clear the above is inaccurate. Nadal's has white swooshes and bull logo, retail they're silver/grey. Sorry to be pedantic, just pointing out what I noticed.
