    Sweet mother of shoes... where in the mother of tarnations do you get something sweet like that?

    Judging by just this picture alone, I'd rate easily 3.5, aggressive baseliner

    What the... when the... where the.... how the..... far kingdom is this not in my country?

    Whelp, I bought 8 pairs of shoes from TW to try out different fits and styles. I can't wait till they arrive so I can pretend to have sold stock for a lot of dollary-doos.

    Babolat SFX2, Joma Slam in 2 sizes, Asics Gel Resolution 6, Lotto Esosphere ALR, New Balance 996 2E, Wilson Kaos, and my trusted K-Swiss Hypercourt Express in a half size larger. I want to see if I can go back to two pairs of socks with a larger size.

    Doubled the number of pairs of shoes in my house to try out some different ones. That's the most I've dropped on shoes all at once...:confused:

    Ranked them in order of comfort. The Babolat SFX2's surprised me, although I did go up a half size. So plush, no pinching, they are noticeably more cushioned than the others.

    Technically I still own them, but I intend to return the ones I don't plan to use.

    Yeah, I might keep the 50th anniversary K-Swiss just because of the bling factor.

    Those are the red ones? Do you have another pic of them from the sides? I've seen them before and I'm sure I was fooled then but when I first saw your pic, I thought of Barricades.

    I took some more :D

    I somehow never pulled the trigger on Barricades because something about them never fit me quite right. Also the sales on those are never quite as good. Shame, because they've got some interesting designs there.

    edit: glare killed it a bit, the right shoe tag has the year "1966" while the left shoe has the year "2016." Pretty neat detail.

    Nice! Those look good. I think the first pair of tennis shoes that I got were KSwiss. I think they might have been Defiers. It's been a long time. I would have loved to have gotten some more pairs of Vapor 9.5s and some of the newer Novak Pros. Hell I might have even gone with a new pair of Babolats.

    Those ballistecs are absolute gems. I'm so annoyed I didn't pick up a more of them. So rare to find them. Especially that 2013 wtf colourway

    Still waiting for all white with black stripes or all black with white stripes versions. Thank god I'm Djokovic fan, because barricades from 2015 onwards look terrible to me.

    1) get yourself a glass of milk
    2) turn Kells on

    While I appreciate OP sharing a picture of his Vapors, and R Kelly for this soft-core porn with music, I do not appreciate the wasting of milk.

    Were they called oreo because their upper was very milky? Hahaha, just joking. While a love the color scheme, I do know for a fact that white flywire was never really white. Plus, they were way too hard and plastic feeling. I'm glad nike learned form it and dropped it.

    Thanks for the video: it made laugh bigly, hahahahahaha
