Been buying Nike 9.5, this is my fourth pair. Like the wear and support.

This was my first choice after a through review of many comparables. I previously bought Prince T-22's, they were very stable but soon lost their inner sole cushioning. The outer portions wore like iron! However, after the Summer they stiffened. I tried on the Adidas Barricade - they were way too ridged.
The Nike Vapor 9.5's have a nice balance of support, breathable comfort and style. I choose the grey and mint green color. I felt this choice was the most sophisticated - trendy without screaming out. I have only had them about a month, the wear factor seems fine so far.
