Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but I was wondering if I should be worried for fake/counterfeit pairs of vapor 9.5 tour’s when I buy on a big auction site? There are quite some pairs still for sale for normal prices. Any advice appreciated.

I dont mind the X as I have 2 pairs but my heart lies with the Vapor 9.5's, i just bought 2 pairs in 2 weeks off fleabay and their my 8th/9th pair in the last few years.

I rarely wear my vapor X's anymore
With Vapor 9.5 I wear a medium and with the Vapor X I have to wear the wide and it takes about two weeks for them to stretch out and feel comfortable. I’ve been buying 9.5 pairs off of fleabay too. Just love the comfort of the 9.5.

I like them for the better colorways hahaha, and comfort.

Some prices still make.me shake my head but I've been pretty lucky as I got my last 2 pairs for $85-$100

I wear Vapor 9.5 for more serious match and I was really able to rely on this shoe when moving forward and side to side....Meanwhile wearing Vapor X for double match and I went half size up was a best bet as I have pretty wide front foot..

I thought Vapor 9.5 was still the best to fit perfectly for my foot..I still have five pairs left with 50% outsole condition and probably will last for next two years , I saw the outsole glue quality for those five pairs was excellent...

I'll be ordering a couple more pairs on the 'bay soon enough. I am nearing the end of my old purple FO color way and have 3 pairs of flyknit, but I found that even sizing down a half size once they break in they get pretty sloppy in comparison to that snug fit of the traditional 9.5's. The X's just lack the volume and for the first time in a long time there isn't a suitable Nike option for me

Nike bring back the Vapor 9.5 the X is terrible!
I honestly think the Vapor 9.5 was terrible. Not only did the sole wear out in 2 weeks, the cushioning on the heel started a bit too close to the bottom, so when I hit stretched 2HBHs, my heel would smash into the cement directly.

Vapor X could be worn like a sock and had no similar issues re the heel. The sole lasted a bit longer too, although a sole that lasts 4 weeks instead of 2 weeks is hardly an improvement.
