My Nike Air Oscillates
My Nike Vapor Speeds
My Nike Zoom Vapor IV's
My Nike Zoom Vapor VI's
My one pair of Nike Lunar Vapor 8's....so far
HOT HOT HOT!!!!
I really love the Aus Open Blue ones...I tracked them down in a Nike Factory store in summer '06.
I will post mine sometime next week once my Federer FO 2009 Vapor Vi's arrive. I also have the blue/black Vapor 3's as above but they are weathered due to frequent use from their prime time
I look forward to seeing your FO Vapor VI's, I love those shoes. Hopefully I can get some for myself sometime.
I was lucky to find them in my size on the Bay recently. The shoes are all about history and the style is quite nice too. I'll be sure to show you before I start using them. Which size do you wear? If I find any listed in the future I'll try to let you know.
I wear a 12.5, which can unfortunately be a tricky size to find. But I appreciate you!
You're kidding! I just bought that exact size. Email me if you want and I'll show you - email@example.com
So what do you guys do with so many pairs of shoes ? Do you play in all of them ? or just collect them and watch.
Personally I use mine. Unfortunately in my younger years I was too silly to look after my blue vapor speed 3's and they are in average shape now, but still very useful for occasional play. Now I have 4 new pairs of CB's and 2 Vapors and I wear them out regularly (tennis and social) but also care for their condition.
I've played in every pair that I have, except for two pairs:
1.) My grass white/gold Vapor IV's (Haven't had a chance to play on grass yet)
2.) My 2nd pair of Oscillates (I'm still using the 1st pair)
Yea, i made a mistake of buying that old NIKE Air Flare, Agassi wore to win that US open. It looked so pretty, i just kept it in the box and didn't play in them. Now it is no longer the premium shoe that it used to be. Not sure what to do with it now.
Is this the 1994 US Open where he had the radical wig thing happening? Or 1999?
I love that collect them and WATCH... hahaha... I am sure tennis fans love to buy new shoes.
I feel pretty good when I worn out one shoes and open NEW one.. sense of achievement that I played lot of tennis...not sure how to describe otherwise..
Saw these on the'bay:
I remember those! I can't believe you found those brand new, those came out in 2005....
They are on the Bay now still available. Size 12. Happy hunting!
Click the photos.
Ahhh nice one. I thought links would have been blocked. Someone snapped them up in the wee hours of US time.
1994 US open version it is.
CB4.3 and my Gray/Orange CB3.3 are both ready for warranty, the Blue/Black CB3.3 are brand new and picked them up from ********* for $75.
Did ********* give you a warranty card with it?
Yes they did.
2x CB 3.3 ($30 NFO) These require alot breaking-in by hand and on-court
2x Court Mo IV ($20 NFO) These are a Poorman's Vapors and great for long walks on the beach.
I've noticed slight bump on on the forefeet near where 3 parts join together on my 2x CB 3.3.
Anyone have any luck finding Nike Vapor 8 for way cheaper than $69.99?
my latest pickup:
I'm def gonna pick up a pair myself.
^^^^ great shoes, will probably pick a pair up now that my 3.3's are all worn out, using the voucher lol
I have to say, I wouldve liked the shoes a lot more of they didnt outline the swoosh in black and just left it all white... a lot more nice and subtle, but oh well
just ordered the peach beauties through my voucher. will pick up some pinks from TW tonight as well.
mind posting some pics when they come in? I missed out on the chance of using my other vouchers to get the blue/green 4.3's (overnight nike.com ran out of like 6 different sizes... wtf?) and am super bummed, but really considering buying blue/green retail and using voucher to get grey/peach, but would like to see live pic first
Ferrari ? no ... Diadora
Will do, if only Nike shipping wasn't 7 days long...
A buddy has them and the scarlet fires, and the peach colors are GORGEOUS.
where do you live? I g free shippig And it only takes 2-4 days.
Wow! Looks like something from an Elton John concert...
I like'm for $78 a pop
^^^^^^ those 4.3's are beautiful... absolutely cant decide between those peach ones or the scarlet ones... anyone want to help give their opinion? Might just flip a coin later haha
I would go with the peach ones.
The V9 soles look pretty thin especially at the heel like you could wear them out in no time.
He's either a Nike employee or knows one.
...I'll be getting mine soon... from the Nike Employee Store (if they have them).
probably. or he knows a local tennis store very well.
I have exact same issue as you. The 8s were not wide enough at the upper part. The 9s are mucho better, cos of the adaptive fit.
Here's my collection so far (only started tennis last Aug - have been using my CB 3.1 for last 10 months so they're pretty beat up). Got these beauties which hopefully will see me through the next 12-18 months.
I just got the peach ones today and wore them to play in. First shoe I can honestly say I never once felt it was brand new. Instant break in for me. They look really good in my opinion too. The right balance of classic look, with a splash of unique color you don't often see.
