    I asked @Rhino but he must have missed it, so I will ask all of you. Do you guys know of any sites that have a list and pictures of every pair of custom Vapors Federer has worn?

    I don't know of a website like that but over the years there have been pictures on the internet of virtually every pair he's ever worn. I'm a shoe geek so I have saved all the pics I've ever seen. Is there a tournament/pair in particular you'd like to see pics of?

    Federer never really wore the Vapor 3. He skipped it and wore the Air Zoom Vapor Speed for an extra year in 2006.

    Don't get technological! Just post the damn pictures:mad:
    :D:p
    Daaaamn, nice!! I really like that pair of black and orange Barricades. I wish I had gotten that pair. Man those are some great vapors. I have the bottom two on the left and I really wish I had the bottom pair on the right and the third pair from the bottom on the right. I don't think that I've ever seen that color. When was it released?

    Thanks! Those are the Barricade 7.0 Warrior Editions - don't really wear them as they are heavy, along with the Miami Barricades and the Cages from 2008. Bottom pair on the right (grey/blue/red) is currently out right now and the navy blue ones are from the French Open this year. Hope this helps.

    Thanks! I have seen the grey/blue/red ones on TW. I probably would have picked them up but I don't have a job anymore:( I think this is the first time I have seen the FO ones. Of course I was in jail during the FO this year lol I did watch the Wimbledon final while in jail though:D Which is your favorite pair of Vapors that you own?
    And speaking of Barricades, I love the looks of the 7's. I also wish that I could get the new Novak Pros as well. There's actually two colorways that I'd love to get.

    Probably the 2015 French Open purple ones but I'm almost through the outsole on those which isn't great.

    Hmm, the shoes look brand new. I found the FO ones from earlier this year using the wayback machine. It took me a minute to find them because I started in May. I think they might have been released in June. What's the next pair of shoes you're going to buy?

    It would take a long time to post pictures of all of Fed's PE shoes, and I'm not sure I have that kind of time! It probably needs it's own thread too.

    But anyway, if it's going to be done, you could start in 2003 before there were any Vapors. The Nike Zoom Breathe Free (2003) was his first slam winning PE. Here are his Wimbledon PE shoes from '03:

    Do you find these hurt on the outer side where your ankle bone sticks out? I tried a pair and it feels like they are cut too high and rubs on my ankle bone.

    Great set-up. Have you gotten your hands on a pair of the flyknits yet @CivicLx ? Would love to hear your thoughts relative to the performance of the 9 and 9.5 vapors. I think relative to the 9, the flyknit provides a more flexible and malleable upper, but through the midfoot, it doesn't really wrap around the foot like the 9. The 9 flywire/dynamic cables work best of the three iterations in my opinion. I love the stability of the 9.5's and they have the most plush tongue of the three vapor 9 suite (9, 9.5, and flyknit). The vapor 9 toe box seemed to be the most narrow of the three. The 9 flyknit also seems to have siginificant more heel slippage than the other two. May resolve over time, but my insoles vault me higher into my shoes than the other two and I am experiencing slippage often.

    Hi gino, I don't own any of the flyknits yet. I am broke right now and won't be getting any new pairs of shoes for a long time. All these shoes are new and I haven't worn them yet. To be honest, most shoes feel about the same to me. I'm not good at telling the difference in how shoes feel. I'm sure if a pair were uncomfortable, I would notice. The only ones that took a little while to get used to were the Barricade 7s.

    No mate. These are the most comfortable shoes I've eer had to be honest. I'd wear them casually but wife says colour is hideous.
    I've always had Barricades because of arch support. Vapor 9.5 was a mistake. These have the support of barricade and the flex of a vapor etc... bear in mind I'm a 37 yo 4.5 ish player who doesn't do a tonne of miles per set and predominantly play on turf courts .

    My solution that is wearing a low cut sock (almost no show) under a crew sock so that there is a little cushioning at the ankle area preventing extreme rubbing. You may try a neoprene ankle sleeve.

    Did those laces come stock with the light blue Vapor 9.5's? None of the Vapor 9.5's I've purchased ever came with flat laces.

    Nope, they did not! I swapped the green laces for the white ones.
