Irregularity on my ZV9T...
I'm pretty sure most pairs have some irregularity between each individual shoe.
I think the same :
Just checked mine (4 pairs) and none of the left feet are exactly similar to the right ones. The differences are barely noticable though, it's not as important as yours.
My lastest acquisition boys
$104 on the bay with free shipping and I've got some kicks for the Southern California clay courts
Notice the synthetic leather details that differ from the retail black/volt V9
Very lucky find, this is the first time I have come across this colorway in my size or anywhere
^It's because you have the clay outsole. The clay version has synthetic leather on the upper instead of mesh.
Wanna hear something weird. The factories who make shoes generally don't make them in pairs at the same time. They make all the left shoes of a batch and then retool and make the right shoes, maybe days or weeks later, and then match pairs up.
It makes production much more fluid. Sometimes you can tell how far apart they are made by the dates in the label on the tongue which has the bar code which tracks the whole production process. That tag is the first part of each shoe's fabrication process.
That's interesting to know !
Got mine today and I agree.....it looks much red/ dark red in online pics , more flourescent in person........I love it! It's like a pleasant surprise
Anyone have any issues with em? I loved em but then pulled a calf wearing them so I am going back to my cb's. very comfy but now I'm scared of em (weird that way).
My barely worn 10.5s are in the classifieds if anyone's looking for some.
does anybody know if there will be another color variation after the us open red/pink/whatever one??? before 2014???
I'm sure there will be some for the indoor hc season. At the very least there will be some for the WTF.
thanks, I thought so... I wish it looks cool this time.....
Are we sure Roger is going to be in wtf though....???????
There will be 2 new colorways for the Holiday season : One for Shanghai/Basel/Paris, and one for the WTF.
No matter if Federer play the WTF or not, Nike will release the shoes anyway. don't worry
do we know the colorways???
Only saw a bad instagram picture, which don't really show the colors well.
But "basically" :
- First one has an all white body (heel, midsole, outsole, laces, tongue, vents, mesh) with dark blue "fingers", dark blue footframe, and red swoosh
Really similar to the pre-USO shoes, but with red swoosh.
- Second one has a light grey body (kind of dirty white) with blue fingers, blue footframe, and bright "icy" blue swoosh.
I think he mentioned that
So whats the deal with Fed's pics from Cincy.?
There's a discussion in other threads whether he is wearing V9's or maybe...V9.5's???
9.5s, from the better pics we got.
You may have given the fanbois around here a little something else to obsess about now
True. Like we don't obsess over enough things here at Talk Tennis. :lol:
Here's another shot of the Atomic Reds:
Anyone else hoping the current white/navy/grey go on sale for $100 Sept. 1?
Yeah. Simple colorway. Goes with about everything in my wardrobe. Much more than my Polarized Pink Vapors...
That's what I'm thinking. And the white isn't that bad to maintain - I still have a pair of the orig AO white/red/volt and with some antibacterial soap and a toothbrush I can clean them up and they look fine.
Orange and Black vapor 9.5s for Indian wells 2014!
Also, fed will be in pale purple again! So classy
Looks like the same "heather purple" than his Madrid/Rome/RG 2013 jacket. Very nice color !!!
Is it going to help him win?
YOu guys really think Nike can improve on this legendary shoe ?
yes. outsole and upper of the 9, fit frame of the 6
Mesh durability. I made two holes where the shoe creases when you walk/run way before going through the outsole. Outsole durability is actually better than the 4.3 surprisingly.
i guess it's 9.5
His retirement job is at a circus? Why is he wearing clown shoes?
Come on Guys, you don't know this model ? They are the Free Trainer 5.0 Woven (Volt Hyper Blue cw)
lol those are running shoes hatomatoma
Training shoes my friend
Exactly! Mesh durability is crucial. I made holes in it in 3 months playing 4 times a week.
Oops my bad lol.
Haha those are the "NIKE Men`s Free Trainer 5.0 Shoe" in yellow and blue. I actually have them and they are very comfortable. Without a doubt the most comfortable sports shoes I have ever worn. Don't try to play tennis with them though, they wear out in a hour.
I'm thinking they'll be the same shoes just with new looks.
The black and white is okay, the red is hideous. 2013 and 2014 Aussie Open vapors were/will be disappointing. Not a good way to start off the year Nike
I honestly can't tell if you're being sarcastic.
Thanks TW (and thanks Fred for offering to pick up from the Open)!
Not sure how to edit the size of the pic on my phone. Too busy to research right now. Any help would be appreciated.
Until then... Here's the link
Can u edit size of that pic..
Nice work getting your shoe signed blantonreed!
what is that red and gray he was wearing today in his glorious defeat ??
I see you're Straight Flexin' on Instagram with that filter
Hah. Lo-Fi is where it's at.
