(Channeling Brad Gilbert): "That would be negative."
I would. I'd never pass up V9's for $59.99, no matter the color. However I saw them in person last weekend and they really look like girls shoes. And it was a girl wearing them too
I have quite a bit of pink gear, but I wouldn't wear those shoes if they were free.
My thoughts exactly. I think we'll see these linger on the auction site for quite a long time coming.
With all these pinks from Nike, and some of you fellows going bananas over a pair of shoes...Nike will soon realize there is no need to have men's and women's shoes...it will just be unisex shoes...
Is it coincidence that the mysteriously ugly shoe appears at virtually the same time the iD thing goes live? I think not. (channeling Giorgio Tsoukalos)
Saw a guy at my local club wearing these last night. They looked great I thought.
ahahahahha that was my exactly thought when I saw what Chardy was wearing.
Nike has saddened me once again T_T.
Back to Barricades.
Wonder what he could do with a pair of Custom Id's?
Might buy them just because of Chardy
BLACK socks needed. Thank you.
Unfortunately these are starting to grow on me...
Same goes for me. I'll pick up a pair if I can get them under $100 in time.
Told you guys..
The greatness of these shoes cannot be denied.
Game set match
I'll just wait it to drop by $59.
All white apparel with these shoes look pretty good. The white apparel neutralizes the bright pink of the shoes.
Agreed. Chardy looks great. The shoes clearly bring winning, style and happiness to one's life.
Ha... By summer 2014 they'll be $59 with all sizes left.
I love the Popeye arm. His forearm is as big around as his head!
where's his can of spinach?
By now is official, everyone who used that shoe fell to Murray. If you're planning to play him, don't use this colorway
Was it only Chardy and Federer who wore those Vapor's at this year's AO? If thats the case, Murray must hate the colorway just as much as I do. :twisted:
love the pink. =D
Regardless of the strategies against Murray, this had to be Fed's biggest blunder at the AO '13. Pink shoe laces???? Definitely Chic rather than chic (trendy). Did anyone ask Fed about this during an interview?
A silver or light blue heel/tongue (to match his day polo) would have been really beautiful. Pink isn't ugly, but it's for a small niche. I like the idea of keeping the color in the back unlike those damn volt triangles from early 2012, but the colorways coming up don't appeal to me.
very nice darklore009! I think these shoes will be ones I will admire from a distance but never actually buy... they look good with the pop but I know it'll be a waste if I got it cuz I wouldnt be able to pull it off... -_-
Got them from a local shop. The owner thought that no one would buy it because it was pink. However, when I ordered it from him, he was surprised. Got a good deal with these
Almost certainly not the last word on the pink
I liked Fed's day AO kit. Including the shoes. And I'd wear all of it, except for the fact that the shoes would cost me $130-ish USD for the shoes and half of everything else for the divorce that would result from my purchase of another pair of shoes. :shock:
But I'll say this: the ideas that people have--adding a different color tongue, or making a pink accent shoe that matched the day AO RF polo--proves to me that the Vapor ID program has WAY too few color choices and far too few customizable parts.
I'd love to ask a Nike manufacturing exec why the limited choices. The Kobe shoes have more choices (I didn't do the math but the permutations must be well over 100K more possibilities) and more expensive materials.
Perhaps if they did a better job of marketing tennis in the states, they'd sell more shoes.
And like someone said above in the thread, I'll get mine when they are on clearance.
There are many reasons why the Vapor 9 iD has so little options. Just a few of my reasons
#1 Almost everybody in the states doesn't really care about tennis unfortunately.
#2 They're Kobes, do you think a TENNIS shoe would have as many options as a famous baller?
#3 Too similar to #1, but a small market is another reason. Tennis is a sport where you have the modern dudes with all there new Nike stuff etc.., and you have the older generations that still use oscillates and mids as tennis shoes. Most people still don't even know that it's called the Vapor, most of the people I know refer to it as the federer shoe.
I will be picking these up very soon. My wife told me to
I may get them when they drop in price
LOL! Well played.
While the choice are limited, I still find it hard to believe that the people bringing it up can't find 1 option that they like. When I get mine on Wednesday, if the quality appears to be ok - and no one on these boards says their aren't well put together - I'll get a 2nd pair. I guess if there is a pair later in the year you like better, that would be a better reason not to order any Custom Ids.
And just so you know, many of the generic running shoes (I know, not tied to a star) have limited Custom Id options too.
Yep, on-court interview after his 2nd or 3rd match I think.
He said he liked it because he already had had many other colors. He also said the pink shirt a few years ago sold pretty good.
Personally I liked the colors but not everyone can pull them off .
Is it me or does the non-Fed version of this shoe appear to be a lighter pink than his in the heel?
Depends on the lightning of the ambience.
Just waiting it to drop by $60.
so like 5 months
decided to add a touch to it. feels like it needs it
you pay more for rf logo?
probally designed it himself isn't hard to do it
i drew the logo myself with a sharpie. not hard to draw it
No, prob 2-3 tops.
Where in ct do you live?
^^^where is that
