Pretty much except for the mesh where I went black to white fade. I'll post pics tonight since I'm at work.
Nice, I look forward to seeing it, sounds like what I'm tempted by!
Well $1,700.00 and 10 pair of Vapor 9 iD's has me feeling good. Thank god for Christmas Bonuses. Times like these I love my job. I had RF as the initials on each pair, now I will order 10 custom made clear shadow boxes to display these in as they will never be worn ever. They shall sit on my wall of Tennis untouched forever. So glad Nike did right by the colors except for that "White Lime" wonder what it looks like in real life? A Nike rep called me to make sure my order was correct and that I in fact meant to order 10 pair, I LOL'd:
Ha! I thought about doing that... All the same color?
My first Clay offering:
Picture was clipped out using Windows 7's "snip-it" tool from Nike's ID page.
I like those a lot too, would change the white swoosh to orange perhaps
I'm not sure what to believe. Either:
A. You're super rich
B. You're an idiot
C. You're joking
I did, but I decided against it because I thought there was too much orange in the middle of the shoe. And the white swoosh helped the shoe stand out I thought.
Lastly, I can't explain it but the orange swoosh made the shoe look "cheap", or "dirty". Whereas the white swoosh helped with a cleaner look I thought.
My favorite vapors were this year's French open style, and I can not find them anywhere. But it is very good to know that I could make the exact shoe on id!
Also, does anyone know how long the id will last?
We can count that out...
I don't know why they would pull it....
Although I can't post a pic, I want to do a tribute to the Mac Attack shoe from the 80's. Grey and black....
I'm guessing C but I'm not counting B out
does anyone know if the pale yellow in the vents is too yellow or does it look pretty similar in real life as opposed to the nike website
Interesting about the differing widths. Anyone know if the 'athletic fit' is the current retail width and the wider one is just that, or is the wide fit what's currently retail an the 'athlete' fit a more narrow version than current retail?
And: does Nike ever hold sales for ID shoes? Any chance of a post X'mas sale of any kind, or something down the road?
The color options for these suck! The whole upper can only be one color except the inside triangle parts! I was really looking forward to making cool colorways but the fact that most of the shoe is just one color ruins that
Anybody know if it comes with the mesh or synthetic leather upper
Not really a fan of these colors. All I can put together is something really basic like white with very few accents (Wimbledon esque) or all blackish with very little accents as well, like those Bred's. The colors offered just don't look right. Not worth the money IMO.
Mesh toe box
Well I'm by no means "super rich", I could possibly be an idiot lol, and I'm most def not joking. I made 10 color combos all different. When you get a $3,000 christmas bonus you tend to go a little crazy lol. I love my job. Not sure how many of you seen my pics in the "post pics of your apparel" thread but i believe some reffered to just part of my Nike collection as "epic"
So the same as a normal v9 mesh
They need more colors!
How does it works for Nike? Is it possible for them to add more colors down the road, or does it means those would be all the color combos for good?
I agree with the posts about the colors being a bit off. At the same time, I'm going to order a couple pairs...black/red...and black/blue.
It looks like their colour option philosophy was such that they didn't want people being able to make their own variations of most of the retail colourways they've got planned. You can't do different coloured uppers, heel section and toe guards - they are all the same.
I can't see how this has made it any easier for them at the production end since they're all different materials. Perhaps it's just a way to ensure all iD shoes are different to any retail models (upcoming ones at least).
I am stoked they've made a grey upper available. There are not enough shoes out there which have grey as their base colour.
My interpretation of Wimbledon Grass:
I really like these colors; I have the Rafa jacket with these colors
I went with a simple all black just because I dont like all the crazy colors. plus black goes with all my tennis gear. 4 weeks and counting...
Looks really good, personally I wouldn't dish $165 for all black
Trust me I had buyers remorse haha but I figure I might as well get the shoe color ive always wanted
Similar idea to Rusty's, with slight tweaks in the id spots (having a bit too much fun messing around with the tool and designing different kicks).
This color will perfectly match with my new products (Crew, jacket and socks) but $165 is a little too much T_T
maybe time to use last voucher......
I'm really loving some of the options! Here's some ideas:
And some for my daughter:
does anyone know how I could ship to australia?
could I use a freight forwarder?
This one is inspired... and I don't even think it needs to be for a female either. Cool colour combo. Pity they don't have other midsole colour options.
Keeping it simple.
Those are cool. It seems the best looking one's have a predominantly all white body with few accents. My only problem is paying $165 for a all white shoe that's going to get trashed! I guess the only thing that might change my mind is a grass court shoe (needing mostly white anyway) with the nubby sole.
Would love to have it, but $180 on 1 single pair of shoes for me is just way too silly...
If I ever get them, it will be one of these two
AMX, that black and green is awesome. The Fed wimby knockoff you guys posted are my favorite. I am going with that or a black/turqouise combo.
They really should add navy blue and purple as an option.
Ok I've narrowed down my choices for my ID, What which one should I pick. The with the red outsole or the white?
^ 2nd one
I have this in my cart on Nike's site...trying to decide if I want to pull the trigger as I can wear these with my dark outfits as well as to work when I want to wear a casual black shoe.
I liked the 1rst one the most
