A major change from the previous model, the Vapor IX featured a gold ball like pattern throughout the upper
The upper material was still a Teijin synthetic, similar to what was used on the last few models
The golf ball like pattern was designed to help improve the grip of the ball, and still remained very lightweight
The Sole Plate:
The Vapor IX traditionally featured a SG Pro sole plate, with a combination of plastic and metal studs
This Vapor IX is a less frequent, 6 stud SG sole plate
Many other sellers may claim this as a "player issue", which it in fact is not. It is just another spec Nike produced in lesser quantities and was sold less frequently. They were certainly not issued to a player.
Notes and Comments:
The golf ball like pattern gave for a very unique design, and was very comfortable on the Vapor IX
The Vapor IX was known for their colorways darkening from the front to back, it gave a bit of a Vapor III vibe to it, but slightly different
