Thanks ^ .. I'm really diggin DelPo's shirt. Never a fan of the polo.
Does anyone know if this blue color is going to release in the US, or will it be a Europe exclusive? I asked the TW Staff on the question thread, but no reply.
Should be out in the US...
I think so too. I guess Nike always release AO tennis apparels.
I predict that yellow bandana and wristbands might be very popular.
When the heck is nike going to release the trend hat?
That ticks me off.
Are the white/yellow and blue/white the only colorways being released for the vapor 8 next year?? I hope not
Those are just the spring colours, more colours will be released with the other lines later in the year.
The blue Vapor 8 looks alright actually.
This year's vapors are lousy at lateral stability. They are comfortable and roomy for wide feet but that's it. Here's hoping the 2011 vapors fix the lateral stability issue.
First few items (RF / Rafa / Nike Tennis training shirts) now available at Nike Europe.
The Rafa training shirt looks great, better than his actual playing shirt.
Digging the new RF Tshirts....I never could wear the GIANT RF but these subtle ones look nice.
Looks like the Vapor 8's upper material is that hard shell rubber from Vapor 6...that could be a good thing for some, bad for others...and still, no Zoom Air...what a shame...Nike is cutting back like everybody these days...
Personally, I find the Vapor 6's Zoom Air + Lunarlite to be a good combo...
Indeed it appears to be a hybrid of both. Nike listened to feedback of the LL support failure features.
The V6 were very painful to break in for many people. The hardness of the core was just not ideal.
I will buy these come January 1st from TW and return them if they suck.
That Vapor 6 was the biggest POS shoe they ever made. I may as well have been wearing those wooden Dutch clogs. Then they absolutely redeemed themselves with this year's model. It was the best tennis shoe I ever wore. If they go back to this stiff as sh*t design I'm getting a divorce.
What evidence is there that this is happening?
i cant wait for the new courtballistics 3.3
I didn't notice any issues with lateral stability. I think they sacrificed some support for softness and lightness, but I like that. To me, they fit like gloves. It's like I'm playing in performance bedtime slippers.
that is so ripoff. that shirt will probably last about 4-5 washings and start to look like homeless person's shirt. and yet they charge like $80 for it. Seriously, it isn't any better than a $15 T-shirt in my opinion.
I finally found the solution to LL and that for me was the Thorlo L3 really rounded out the roominess of the LL. I did not buy them but tried them on with the L3 and they felt incredible but the sole of the vapors blow for $120.
The V8 indeed have the dutch clog plastic, it appears to be in the angular cutout areas. Hopefully though they are not nearly as stiff and wierd like the Oreos were.
Anyhoo...we will know soon enough.
If the news is bad news. I'll stock up on this year's.
Taking off the buttons on a Fed polo.....
Reducing the size of the "RF" on the Fed shirts....
Putting 3 completely unnecessary & ugly windows near the Nike Swoosh on Vapour 8
Not bringing back the legendary heel that the Vapour 6 had......
There is so many things wrong in this world
Detail on back of Rafa AO'11 crew:
Showdown Sunburst Polo:
OMG, those are freakin' ugly!!!
...I'm totally going to get them anyway!!! They remind me of Spider Man.
Thanks for posting, mate.
Having just compared them side by side, I think I still prefer the aesthetic of the 2K10s. Will be interested to see other colourways, though.
Thanks for the pics. Any chance you can post the Fall clothing?
Thanks in advance.
please make an efford: when you reply with a quote, please remove the pic in the quote so to spare reader from seeing the same pic again and again plus saving disk space for TW so they can continue to have this site up
so annoying to see 3 same pics on the same page being reposed over and over.
the back of that red crew looks like the design of the shirt i see on Djokovic designed by some T company...... i am not a fan of that design. I like solid with little detail and look less busy.
I am not a Fed clothing fan but this 2011 seems interesting, maybe i will abandone Nadal wagon and get on with Fed clothing wagon :shock:
BTW that shoe design look like spyderweb
Got to admit, that polo is pretty cool.
It had the looks though, I ordered myself 2 pairs of 3bay GOAT heel on a shoe!
I want that polo even if no pro wears it.
My only question is why the heck is Nike releasing the 2k11 in the middle of the year in almost the same colors as the 2k10 for Spring 2011... might as well begin 2011 with the 2k11, no?
Is this true? The Nike 2K11's will not be available in January 2011?? WTF!
From the catalogue pics, it looks like fall is the time the 2k11s will release, 7/1 - well, the "Fall line" for Nike, still summer for us in the northern hemisphere.
Agreed...it's pretty crazy how the Vapor 6's were slammed when they came out (rightfully so for being way too stiff), and now they're getting love for being so awesome. It's sort of like the love for the Oscillates. People love the nostalgia of that shoe, and when they bought the rereleases, they realized that the shoe was great for it's day, but shoe tech has come a long way and there are a lot of better options now.
Well that stinks!!!
NDC has some of the new shoes up for sale - Vapor 8s and CB 3.1s. The White/Varsity Maize 8s are available to order but the White/Black are still out of stock.
It doesn't really, as they look like crap IMO. Have a look at the Fall '11 thread; i put the links to the shoes up on there, and fedhenry put up the apparel too.
God I hate the way those Rafa Bull dri fit hats feel on my head. They look ok though.
Soooooo uncomfortable and scratchy.
Gotta stick with the IsnerBerdy(tm) Speheres.
I don't mind the Dri-Fit hats. I do like the Berdych Sphere hats a lot, too. Both feel about the same, the Sphere hats are a little more shallow fitting, though.
Those hats look like crap, like faux leather hats you'd see on 50yr old dads trying to look cool
They look like that because of poor Photoshopping. They're not shiny at all. The black USO one looked like pleather online but it's just the same matte DriFit fabric as the regular hats.
The new Global Court looks like a direct replacement to the Resmash. Sports@uthority here they come.
Received the crimson one yesterday; it's definitely not shiny. Usual disclaimer about pic quality, as taken on lame Blackberry cam.
The Rafa bull hats (in any colour) had not been released by Nike in the UK until this season (except at the London NikeTown during WTFs), so I had assumed I would like them as much as the Featherlights (which they insist on selling only in black and white, unless you are very quick at the start of the season, or import from TWE).
So I bought one and I've found I'm not keen on either the design nor colour. Fortunately I found six Featherlights (2 each in white, black and royal blue; incidentally, isn't this a line of condoms? :shock on sale which arrived today. Classic design, with great moisture wicking functionality when it gets hot, so I'll stick to them I think.
EDIT: I've thought about it and it's the colour I hate! It's a 'deep peach.'
Anybody know when the 3.3's are gonna be up?
I want to pick up a pair!!!
nike dealer says around january (AO)
