Comments: I bought these shoes about 3 months ago and really love the feel. They are light and extremely
comfortable, almost like a sock. The thing is however that I have seriously twisted my ankle twice in 3 weeks wearing these shoes,
so I wonder if this is because of the shoes. I am rather heavily built but run a lot on the court. I don't know if there are other
people who had the same problem with these shoes. If so, I might have to go back to the traditional and more heavy sturdy shoes.
Comments: I wore 8 pairs of the Court Ballistecs 4.3, and never had a problem, I was going for my 9th pair and I
didn't like the colors available, so I bought the Vapor 9 Tour. They are very comfortable and really flexible. I was happy, but
within 2 weeks I developed pain in my left heel. I'm going back to the Ballistecs as soon as new colors arrive.
Comments: These are great shoes for me. I have 6 pairs, and I had plantar fascitis, but with insoles they work
great. I love them.
Comments: This is an extremely comfortable shoe, as I only had light aching feet after my first session in these, but
that was probably due to my orthotics and the adjustment in wearing them in these shoes for the first time. I have had a few more
sessions since and I get no pain at all. Just amazing comfort. They are extremely easy to wear apart from the minor aching
problem as they now fit amazing, with the lacing system allowing you to fit it like a glove to you feet. It's a light shoe giving you
plenty of speed, but also very stable. Finally, the white/navy/blue color scheme is pretty sick too. I can't comment on durability yet
but I will update. Recommended.
Comments: This is the most comfortable tennis shoe I've ever had, but after 3 weeks of D1 college tennis
they have no tread left. Typical Nike durability, but wonderful if you don't care about burning though shoes.
Comments: These shoes are awesome except for the durability. Honestly, try on the Asics Gel Resolution 4's.
They're just as comfortable as these, a little less expensive, last way longer and have a durability guarantee. Yeah, they aren't worn
by RF and they don't look as cool but they are just a better shoe.
Comments: Extremely great shoes. I have had them for about a month now and they are not tearing at all. I play
everyday and tournaments on weekends and they are still holding up. The lace system is pretty cool and actually works. Again,
these are great shoes. If you are thinking about getting them, I would definitely recommend it.
Comments: I bought my first pair and immediately ordered two more pairs right afterward! I love this shoe!
Comments: I played in these fresh out of the box and they felt great, as well as performed great. I forgot about my
feet during the match, except when I remembered I had on a new pair of shoes and remarked to myself how good they felt. They
are very nimble feeling, too. My footwork benefitted, as moving back and jumping for overheads was a joy. I highly recommend
these shoes. My old Wilson's don't compare, plus they made my Achilles' tendon ache. I've had no problem with these Nikes.
Comments: Not comfortable at all. They caused me extreme left heel pain and blisters on both
feet. I've gone back to my old shoe. Good money down the drain.
Comments: I just came off the court for the second time. They are easily the most comfortable Nike Tennis shoes I
have ever worn. Super light with an incredible fit. Not to mention they look cool as well.
Comments: This is a great shoe, and I've already bought 3 pairs for my tennis season. But really can
we just add the durability guarantee? It would make sense since the shoe doesn't last long for heavy toe draggers and baseline
grinders who go for every possible shot. I'd rather these than the Court Ballistec's since it has no break-in required! It's a great
shoe overall, just add some warranty to it.
Comments: Knowing that Tinker Hatfield designed these shoes assured me
that the new Vapors were going to be the best ones yet. And boy they
were. The Vapor 9's are pretty much the Rolls Royce of shoes. Honestly,
they're the best shoes you will ever see so far overall. It carries on
with the Vapor tradition of lightweight and comfortable aspects. This
shoe basically feels like a pillow that wraps perfectly around your feet
with the new Nike Adaptable Fit system, with the finger like straps
contouring the laces along your feet while moving, which gives fantastic
support. The only downside is the durability, like the previous Vapor's.
It's expected that such a light shoe would have average durability, but
it's decent enough. I would get a pair for practice and one for match
play. It's a bit pricey, but it's worth the price.
Comments: These shoes cannot be described with just words but I shall
try my best. The shoes are so comfortable, just like a running shoe. If
your running for a drop shot, the shoes have enough stability to
stop you from running into the net. The finger-like lacing system is
quite lovely; if your feet feel a little tight you can adjust the shoe
to a better comfy fit. Also, its a pretty cool looking shoe. However,
compared to the vapor 8's, it tops everything except durability.
Durability on these shoes have decreased slightly but if you have the
money, get these shoes.
Comments: Hands down, these are the most comfortable sneakers I have ever wore. There is absolutely no break in
period. They are light weight, and feel like you're gliding across the court. The downside of this shoe is the durability. Don't
expect to play a ton of intense matches in these. If you're a casual player, these shoes are perfect. If you're really aggressive, you
will love the how light these are, but will despise the durability.
Comments: For many years I've played in Nike Breathe's. Recently I thought I'd do something different. I saw the
Vapor 9's and fell in love with the look. It's a great looking shoe with all the color ways. Anyway, if you've ever heard of 'plantars
fasciitis', you know it is a painful foot ailment/inflammation that takes rest and time to heal.
It didn't take but 3 times out in the Vapor 9's and I was in a mess of pain. This is the first time (and hopefully the last) I've had this
sort of foot problem.
For me, going from the Breathe's to the Vapor's was a huge mistake. They had very different foot support system seems to be the
I complained directly to Nike, hoping that they would help a struggling tennis player to offset a $260.00 (2 pair) investment, but
no luck. Very dissapointing.
Anyway, I'm back to the Breathe's and my feet seem to be getting a little better. I'm like a lot of old tennis players, I play through
pain all of the time. By the way, Tennis Warehouse helped me a little with offering a discounted price for my next pair of
Breathe's. Thank you. Again, NIKE was no help.
My opinion, if you've been happy with another type of shoe, stay away from the Vapor 9. It's not for everyone.
Comments: Worst Nike Lunar edition in a long time. Horrific
ventilation. I've never gotten so many massive blisters from a tennis shoe.
Comments: Good so far. It's comfortable for a tennis shoe, light, good-looking, and good traction. I really hope
these hold up longer than a month.
Comments: Amazing shoe, I've tried them all and no shoe comes even close
to the comfort and performance of these. Absolutely weightless and
seamless experience. It flexes with my foot, supports it everywhere and
absorbs as much court pressure as I could throw at it without giving up
any stability or causing any pain. The fit is generous in the forefoot
so my size 9, E feet fit in perfectly (while in most other shoes my
forefoot aches for more space). Low durability, 90's styling and insane
standard price are downsides to consider, but in comparison, other shoes
feel like obsolete, clunky devices you've tolerated for too long.
Comments: I have a pair of the Nike Vapor Tour 8, and while I like how they feel, the white
synthetic leather has turned a yellowish-white from the sun I'm guessing. It's too bad Nike
can't come up with a color-safe material, especially because they charge so much money for
them. I hope this newer addition doesn't have the same problem. They look great new.
Comments: Great looking shoe, great feeling shoe, but for $130 they don't last long enough.
I play 1-2 times per week and 3 months later I'm already seeing right through the forefoot. I'm wishing
they had a durability guarantee.
Comments: Just came in the mail, and I put them on and they feel very very comfortable!
I can't wait to try them out on the courts. I have a new 2nd pair of Breathe's and just tried them
on, and they were very stiff..the 1st Breathes took a very long time to break in on the sides.
The Vapor 9 looks great too!
