The cushioning in the heel looks really high- reckon he's got an air bubble in there?
Yeah. Was hoping for reviews of the actual product. There is some good sizing info - but all the 'Rafa isn't wearing them' has now taken over the thread.LOL! I had a feeling this thread was going to blow up once Rafa stepped on court with his LB "fakes"!
How is this 'obviously a replacement'? If the price $5 or 19, maybe, but to jump the price up that much makes it seem like a new line, or some addition to the 4.3s.
I wear a 11.5 in the 4.3, also 11.5 in the Vapor 9.quick question, is there any consensus as to how the fit compares to the vapor 9/9.5 or the 4.3? i ask because i've read that they fit larger so one should order either a full size or half a size smaller yet TW on their review does not mention this and they actually say the fit is true to size. any insight would be greatly appreciated
6 month durability guarantee. You'll get a new pair......no worries.Yikes, the overall durability of these are a bit concerning. I slide a lot, it puts lots of pressure on the side of my right shoe, but I have never torn up the side that quickly.
I don't drag my toes a lot, but my right shoes toe is about to have a hole lol. I believe this is what Chris said in his review.
Yeah, I took the bait and bought a pair of the LB's. I normally wear a 9.5 and had to go down a half size.I wear a 11.5 in the 4.3, also 11.5 in the Vapor 9.
11 fits me in the Lunar Ballistecs. The Lunar Ballistec fits on par with the Air Max Cage, but not QUITE as wide.
So far,they haven't been scratched yet. Only way IMO that they could be broken is via the Nadal vs. Nishikori fall that broke his laces lol.The "fly wires". Are they really easy to break? Seems like after a couple of months they will be the first things to break. Any feedback?
Anyone know if Rafa is wearing the Lunar Ballistecs at the Rio Open or using a paint jobbed 4.3?
No. Nadal did not wear paint job 4.3.Pretty sure they're still paint jobbed 4.3s.
If they were okay, and not hitting your foot, this seems odd given the cost of the shoes. Why not keep them and play them out?I wore mine two or three times and then gave them away. I bought another pair of Prince T22's.
IMO, they're OK, but there is nothing special about them.
I have not, but I've never experienced blisters with any of my tennis shoes. They are supremely comfortable to me. Part of this may be what I do to my shoes; I replace the stock insoles with aftermarket insoles. That usually helps for better fit.Has anybody experienced blisters with these shoes? I saw one kid who's foot was bleeding from them.
Not a huuuge fan, seem a tad overrated and only priced higher due to ,uh, Rafa?
Whatever Nike is doing, they're doing one heck of a job marketing towards the young kids who want everything "Rafa" due to the fact their are many shoes that perform better, but for what, about half the price???
although... i wouldn't mind a pair because they are hands down the best looking tennis shoes, but not the best PERFORMANCE shoe...
hope i didn't step on anybody's feet...:razz:
I agree with this. The 4.3s just didn't make me love them. The LBs are so much better in every area, primarily comfort. With that said, I still prefer to play serious matches in my Gel Resolution 5s as I feel they are sock-like. I play the LBs when practicing or playing a friendly match though so I get plenty of play with them.For me tho, performance wise, I like them a lot better than the 4.3
