    Looks like they are def being reissued, with the re-release of the Olympics colorway and the all black version as well, albeit the black version seems to have been mostly in Europe. Beats me as well about Sampras' shoes as he was before my time too lol

    Damn, you got me / him.
    I always felt like I had seen this greek-looking guy - who works as a tennis coach in my local club and always wears 90s nikecourt collections- before ..

    Damn you guys with your pre 9/9.5 Vapors. I did have a pair of 3s or 4s and wish I had stocked up on some. The only older shoe that I still have in new condition is a pair of the blue and white (or is it black?) Breathe Free IIs.

    I sure don't mean to hijack this thread...really cool to be able to see what everybody is in to. According to my wife I have PLENTY of shoes......I tend to disagree. :). I've been searching for these in 8.5 or 9 US. If anyone has a lead I'd sure appreciate it. Thanks everyone!!!

    Vapor 9's in the Volt colorway and Blue and Green colorway
    9.5's in the Purple and hot lava colorway and the Gray fog and orange colorway with the speckled soles.

    Again-I REALLY don't want to step on anyones toes here but any advice on where to fine is appreciated!!!

    Assuming you have the ability to do so, you can post a WTB thread in the correct forum. I forget if there is one big classifieds forum or if it's split into FS/FT and WTB subforums. I think it's the former:)

    I bought them off a friend for 100 USD. He got them off the auction site and realized he didn't want them so he asked if I wanted to buy 'em off him.

    hey @Capulin Zurdo,

    did you have enough recovery since the USO 97 Oscillates?

    are you ready for another heart attack?:D

    How is the sizing of this shoe? I have a pair of Ultraboost in 11.5, but no other Adidas to compare. I wear an 11.5 in Vapors and an 11 in my Resolutions.

    Before buying these shoes, I was using the breathe's 2k10 in 9.5. The Ubersonic's 2 are size 10 (wanted to try half a size bigger because lately I was feeling a lot of pain in my toes with the breathe's).

    The Ubersonic's 2 are a bit bigger than the breathe's but not half a size bigger, less than that.

    Idiot question, but how do I post pictures? In the graphic on this thread it says to add the URL, but how do I do that? I have an image saved on my computer but can't post it.

    Are they? I knew there was a high version obvs. for basketball, but didn't think the Low would be too. But hey, I just think they're C.A.F.
    I will get round to posting a pic of all my tennis kit, racquets & shoes very soon!

    Always wondered about these shoes why they come without stripes on the inside. What happened? Did they run out of ink? Cause the stripes are just a cheap paint job.
