Tennis is a game heavily dependent upon lateral movement, but Nike Tennis is definitely on to something with this whole front/back thing.  The Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour has taken it up a notch with a flurry of recent activity, including now three new colorways that depend upon some variation of this subtly blocked template pictured above.  These could have been even crazier with a splatter, gradient or some other effect, so while they’ll still stand out on most tennis courts, the sneakerhead Vapor Tour 9 admirer will appreciate the restraint.  It’s also especially dope how the darker green shade blends in through the midsole and adds a little oomph, so click through to see more details and let us know if the Zoom Vapor 9 Tour deserves serious consideration as the best modern tennis sneaker.

Nike debuts another new color for 2013 on an unlikely model choice.  But with the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour arguably the most popular post-Agassi Nike Tennis design, it makes sense to see a shade like Russian Blue make its first appearance.  Tinker Hatfield’s exoskeletal build is subdued in this tonal build, eschewing gradients, splatters or any form of graphical intensity in favor of the simple contrast between light forefoot and dark heel.  Stick with Sneaker News for US release info and let us know if this is the best Vapor Tour 9 colorway to date.

Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

For better or worse, 2012 was a defining year for the sneaker world and all that it encompasses. It was a year that saw certain shoes throw the laws of supply and demand so out of whack, that brands and retailers had to completely rethink the way they sell shoes to the public just to keep the peace. If you were willing to put in some legwork or, better yet, had the right connections, it was a banner year for sneaker enthusiasts. “Must-have” releases seemed to be at an all-time high and nearly every weekend offered up some sort of temptation for consumers. 2012 saw the release of some of the most eagerly anticipated and passionately sought-after sneakers the game had ever seen and it’s safe to say that things will never be the same again.

In between those, there were plenty of other desirable targets along the way, from the special limited editions and collaborations to beloved Retro returns and promising new designs and innovations. There were even a few certified sleeper hits that organically carved out their place among the year’s best releases. Due to an exponentially expanding consumer base and a heightened level of product awareness, you might not have been able to get your hands on every shoe you hunted for in 2012, but there was certainly no shortage of solid alternatives ripe for the picking in their absence.
