    I wear usually Size 10's in the Vapor 9.5's. I got Size 10's again in the Vapor X & they are a bit tighter than the 9.5's. Have to wear thin performance socks & they are OK. Can't wear the thick, cushioned socks. If you are close to size, I would probably order 1/2 size up & get a bit more space & width.

    I have wide feet... I wore size 11 in the 9.5s and fit perfectly. In the X, the same size was uncomfortably tight. I half-sized up, it was snug but fit much better. After about 30 minutes of court time, the shoe felt fine and I wear the Nike dri-fit cushioned socks which are not super thick but well-cushioned for playing 2+ hours on court.

    Mmm they look fantastic, although in my opinion they should have saved that colour combo for the US Open.

    Just got my Xs. Coming straight from the 9.5s I can first say that these leases are extremely short. Like, what the hell was Nike thinking?9.5’s laces were kind of long and got shaved up after a while but I definitely prefer those over the X’s. I’m really struggling to cinch down the tongue at all, something seems stuck. Does anyone have a solution?

    Yeah laces are short but I don't use the top hole so they work for me. Never used top hole on 9.5's either. Can always change them out.

    Does not using the top hole also help keep the tongue in place? Have always had problems with it slipping around lol.

    I'm sure everyone's foot is a bit different in the shoe but I didn't notice the tongue wagging when I didn't tie up to the top hole. :)

    I have a high instep so that's why I don't use top hole but I get 'em nice and snug without and there's no tongue movement at all.

    Yep. Just got my 2nd pair (didn't want to snooze/lose on the grey/red that just came out - the 1st pair are still in incredible shape) and went 1/2 up. Just walking around they feel much better. Not too snug, not too big.

    I was wearing Vapors 9/9.5 in size 11 and the sizing was perfect, in every sense. Also, before that, all previous Vapors 8/7/6/5 were of the same size. Now, I got recently Vapors X (both BRED and Air Max models) in the same size. They both fit like a glove, but I cannot escape the feeling that 1/2 size up would be a perfect deal...

    So, I completely agree with the Ace.

    God I hate that. I bought some of the new Kevin Durant's, and I could barely tie the shoe.

    Why doesn't TW carry the clay outsole?
