Air Zoom: More than 30 years ago, a revolutionary idea raised the standards in sneaker comfort: Use the lightest cushioning material there is—air. Nike Air units work by trapping air molecules inside a durable urethane shell. With each footstrike, the air unit compresses to reduce the force of impact, and then immediately recovers its shape to be ready for the next landing. Nike Air units are built to last, so the cushioning properties hold steady for the life of the shoe.

XDR: Nike has created their new Extra Durable Rubber (XDR) and put it in their top shoes.  XDR ensures that you get the most out of your shoe, providing great protection and excellent traction on the court.

Awesome shoes, very comfortable and form fitting. The first thing that I noticed when I first tried on the Nike Zoom was how it hugged my feet, and how strong and comfortable it really is. Out on the court it allowed me to move effortlessly, and gave me a very secure feel. I am a 4.5 player and play several times per week, and at the end of a match or sparring session my feet and toes feels great. I am liking them a lot.

All I have to say is that I love these shoes. I play tennis 5 days a week on average and these shoes keep my feet from hurting and are just great all around. The light weight of these shoes is great. I know all the other comments say the shoes wear out too quickly. I do agree with that statement, however it is difficult to make a shoe this light and have it still be durable. I think it's worth the money since I bought my pair on sale.

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.

As with most Nikes, durability is way below avearage. After one hour of play, I can already see the wear in the toe areas. It is comfortable to put on, but the lateral support (coming from Barricade 7s) is average. It's better suited for soft courts or the artificial turf. For hard courts, go for the B7s.

I love these shoes as I have been playing with the Vapor series now for over a year, but they don't seem to last. I buy a new pair every 4 to 6 weeks as the soles are simply gone and the under-soles are coming out. Maybe the 20 hrs of play per week doesn't help.

Great shoes. Comfy, lightweight, and look great on and off the court. I have no problem with the durability issues like many mentioned. You could tell that Nike has already strengthened the outsole on this retail version as opposed to the ones that Federer actually wears. The shoes get better when you wear them out a bit because they are too grippy on the hard courts just right out of the box.

I have read the reviews and decided to give the Vapor

I have read the reviews and decided to give the Vapor 9 a try as I dont play as often as I used to, so shoe wear was not really an issue for me. The shoe feels great, very light and stable. I normally wear a size 9.5 and that is what I purchased and found them to be a little big. My toe seems to be swimming a good 1/4-1/2 inch at the end of the shoe. My next pair will be a size 9.

These shoes are a pretty good mix between performance

These shoes are a pretty good mix between performance and support. I like their weight and the "low to ground" profile. I can move pretty well in this shoe. The breathability is good. I have had a couple of Nike pairs and this one is the best so far in term of ventilation. Fitting is very good for me. I have narrow feet and this shoe fits nicely but is not too tight not too roomy. However, the cushion is somewhat a little too thin. They have to compromise things between performance and protection. It is understandable. I agree with one reviewer about it being "too grippy." I almost rolled overed once. I don't know about durability since I don't care much about it unless they are really below par. Bottom line, it is a good pair. Nike did a good job on this one. However, it still cannot beat the Asics Gel 2.

These shoes feel great and are very bright which in my book is always a great thing, however they do not tend to last very long. After about 2 or 3 weeks the wear is very noticeable, but all in all these shoes are fantastic

These felt like a cross between a basketball shoe and

These felt like a cross between a basketball shoe and a low-to-the ground training shoe, except the sole has the XDR rubber which makes it a little stiffer albeit more durable. I think this is as good as it gets when it comes to tennis shoes. The only improvements I would suggest would be putting the XDR in only specific spots rather than in 2 big patches for improved flex, but I suppose that would increase costs, and may not work for every one. Lately the color ways seem to be a little silly looking though.
