I can confirm roger is wearing the le vapors..
And it doesn't look good at all :-(
Can you take a screen grab? :3
i agree the orange soles dont suit the grass at all
he's wearing LE vapors...
strange colorway for wimbledon
and a horrible jacket lol
Nike had the release on their calendar but then they took it off. Did they not do that with the 287 as well? I'm checking back at 9am because I remember the 287s coming out at that time.
+1 feel free to PM me!!
Do you actually like the shoes or are you just trying to fill up a collection?
I actually like the Orange sole...good for something different and a very subtle color addition.
Personally though I think they should have gone for an Orange swoosh and orange laces.
too much orange...
maybe orange mid shank to match the nike swoosh on the shorts and polo
but the whole sole on green grass looks like the pic above - crabsticks on lettuce
You can purchase them on TWE too
No trophy? No RF?
Also TWE says out 6/29
They are also around 10-15 euros more than the regular vapors.
There's also a Courtballistec 4.3 LE version for Rafa which basically looks the same. Some shops have it up already.
Shoe is officially out on Nike.com. I would hardly call it limited edition, it's just the regular shoe with an orange grass court sole.
I was expecting a trophy with a 7 on it and RF on the tongue at least. It retails for 140 USD.
The limited edition courtballistec is out as well.
What am I going to do with a grass shoe here in Texas? Mow my lawn in them? LE?-pffff!
If nike wants to sell these as collectiable, they should make same design as fed's actual shoes (tongue, trophy etc)...
I don't know about condition in Europe but release Grass shoes in US????
What are they think?
Seems like nike tennis department does not know what people wants nowadays.
I have completely no idea where am i gonna use this grass vapor9, there is only hard court in my city.....
if fed manages to defend his title these will be gone in an instant, regardless of grass soles or not o.o
Already only size 12 left! Hypebeasts gobbling them up lol..
They come with a special box at least.... NT's are also getting them today.
Hypebeasts have been mad thirsty as of late.
Still disappointed Nike didn't do more with these.
Any info on this special box?
Well, I'm from France, and I ordered it just because of the very nice box ...
Somehow this is very sad I know ...
Why the hell Nike don't put the RF on Every Vapor ... Have you seen any KD kobe or Lebron without the signature on the shoe ?? Damn I'm mad ..
I was so excited to buy these... But no hard court sole bummed me out. I had a pair of 10s in my cart and decided not to pull the trigger.
Very disappointed, I was expecting at least an RF and/or trophy, otherwise it's just another Vapor 9 colourway (albeit with a grass court sole).
Must be on sale now, no?
Was just thinking they might've silently moved those to the clearance section.
They gonna call these the "banned 9s" now
^^^nice article... but wow -_- they're crazy strict about this huh... they're completely sold out anywhere? they look nice but if fed's only wearing them for round1...
Someone selling them on the bay with actual photos and no special box with them (on the contrary to some other generic photos on the bay).
it seems like special box is only available at several nike town stores at UK.
I can't believe they said he can't wear them, even though they are all white except for the sole. Actually, I think it's funny they are making one of the biggest tennis stars change his attire...hope he brought some backup shoes!
Thanks for the info Kim. As always, you know everything about Nike
Picture of the regular retail box.
It's not mine ^_^

Very surprised to see that nike delivered with normal retail shoe box. fed did not get his special box ^_^
Nike always sends there PEs in regular boxes. Even Lebron, whose sigs have special boxes, gets his shoes in regular boxes.
well these arn't going to be worth that much cuz it marks fed's earliest exit from a grand slam since forever...
I just grabbed these today. Anyone seen this colorway before? I haven't.
Nice bro! These were discussed earlier.. They are the pre US Open shoes for fed.
Agree 100%. Only collectors will want them, and the Fed fan won't want anything to do with them.
(the Stadium Gray/Crimson and the White/Pure Platinum are clay version... I made the switch to Crimson laces à la Nadal on the Stadium Grey ones Much more aggressive!!)
Banned V9 with orange outsole to arrive today...
Yeah, I saw these in my local store the other day. I'm trying to figure out what color they are, either black, dark navy, or some shade of dark grey. What do you think?
Color is Armory Navy.
Thanks...not sure I need another shoe with Navy on it...guess I'll pass on this one even though I like it. I wish it was a dark grey.
Just got my LE pair in... and they're going back to Nike.
Why are you sending them back?
They're awfully boring and unlike the 287s, they have nothing special(except for grass sole). Good thing I got a great price on them.
