    Great, did you play on hardcourt? 2-3 times is not so much, so these shoes are not on durable side.

    I knowww, If we played as much as we use too, these would have been in 3 weeks I'm sure!

    I wanted something similar to the Asics Solution Speed 3s for a wider foot, and these are as close as you can get. Both are no warranty and very light weight, these are just 2 ounces lighter and $30 cheaper.

    Nice shoes and welcome:)
    Nice shoes also. There's a Bos here that's looking for a pair of these shoes. I would tag him here but I'm not sure how. Any idea?

    Have you found that vapors have been running larger over the model years?

    It's funny you should say that. I always thought I wore a size 11. Then in about 2010 I realised 10.5 was better for me. Now I can comfortably take a size 10. I thought my feet were shrinking. :)

    this is confirming my experience but I had the budget version from a few years ago and now my new fed versions feel too large though both are the same size.

    I think it depends on model. I usually wear 7.5 size. Vapor 6 (7.5), vapor 7 and 8 (7), vapor 9 and 9.5 (7.5) and flyknit vapor (7).
    I have not tried latest vapor yet. If there is slightly different fit for recent vapors, probably Nike might change or
    add manufacturing factories. Even if nike gives exact same direction, possibly factories can make slightly different fit.

    I consider myself very lucky to have gotten these gems off the auction site. My favorite Nike's from 2012.

    I think theres a " no for sale posts" politic in this part of the forum.

    So all I can say to answer your question are 3 letters

    Seriously, if I ever robbed your house, I would skip any electronics and jewelry and go right for your shoe collection:D But of course I would never do such a thing:oops::)

    Of all the shoes you have, not just the ones in the pics, which are your faves? I know you have the Savile Rows. I really wanted to get these when they came out. I was back in Ireland and I think I even called TW to find out what time they would be up and there must have been a miscommunication:( There are a lot of pairs I wish I had gotten!

    Thanks. My 3 favourite pairs are these:
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/kickpix/30835195883/

    The Cincinnati ones in particular because, I don't know if you remember that tournament, he was on fire. He'd recently regained the #1 ranking and didn't drop a set in all 5 matches. He became the only person in history to win a Masters 1000 event without having his serve broken.
    It was good memories for a Federer fan. People had been saying he was done and I remember Martina Navratilova saying the year before that he'll never be #1 again.
    Plus, in all the 45 matches he played against Djokovic, this was the only 6-0 set between them. Very satisfying!

    I don't remember that tournament but I've probably seen some highlights on YouTube. What year was it? From your picture, I REALLY love the black ones. What style is that again?

    And I really want to get new shoes so badly. I'd love to pick up a pair of the blue and white Novak Pros. I love the looks of the 7's and of course I would add some more 9.5's to the collection if I could.

    Cincinnati is 2012. The black ones are 2007 US Open Vapor 4.

    Do you know of any sites that show every custom pair of Vapors Roger has ever worn? I think with the right colorway, the Vapor 9's/9.5's can look really sick but I still think I like the 4's and 5's more.

    I see you can now buy custom made Fed gear from Tennis warehouse??!!

    But they are only selling one shoe at a time. Not a pair of shoes. Personally I would never just want one shoe. especially at that price.

    You can buy left side shoes at TW Europe and right side shoes at TW USA and complete the shoes.
    The complete pair will be about $2000. Significant price drop than a few years ago. I remember those autographed Fed shoes were priced between $5000-10000.

    Well it does depend on the shoes. The Wimbledon 2015 shoes went for US$4500, and the Wimbledon 2016 shoes were on sale for about 2 days before they were snapped up for US$4000.

    He doesn't win as much anymore. Tournament winning shoes go for the most. Winning Wimbledon or US Open shoes are quite pricey. Indian Wells 2015, not so much.

    I was talking about general fed items not specific one. most of fed item (both Player exclusive items and retail items) values went down nowadays.
    looks like it peaked at 2009 then slowly continue to go down in my opinion. Fed's PE GS title shoes went over $10000 but I m not sure there are buyers who is willing to pay over $10000 nowadays. I don't collect stuffs anymore so I don't track every items nowadays so it's my own point of view though.
    Collectable item values should go up but fed item values go opposite direction and not sure those collectable item values will rebound after his retirement.
    I always think that Fed brand can be possible but a little doubtful nowadays since his items are not selling like 2008-2010 level.
    only possibility might be brilliant business strategy from brand manager and team.

    Cincinnati 2012 was an outstanding tournament for Federer, that first set bagel was amazing to watch.
