Entering the market with an array of new footwear for women and men in 2023, NikeCourt continues the keep a high standard of excellence with its all-new Nike Zoom Vapor 11.

Endorsed by some of the greatest players the game has ever seen, the Vapor 11 is the current choice of Nick Kyrgios, Paula Badosa and Victoria Azarenka.

Taking over the reigns of the of the Vapor React NXT, the Vapor 11 is much more stable option of those players looking to spend hours on the court this summer.

Continuing to have step-in comfort, the Vapor 11 offers new-age improvements that allow any player to slide into their shots on either clay or hard-courts.

Possessing many of the great qualities of the Vapor Pro and the Air Zoom Vapor X, the Vapor 11 takes the series one step further with even more breathability, a lighter, more flexible upper, more stability around the court, and a half bootie entry toward the lacing system.

Fit for the Legends of the Court

One aspect of the Vapor series that continues to win many players over has been its easy comfort right out of the box. Requiring no break-in period, the Vapor 11 offers the same fit as the Vapor Pro, but provides an even more locked down fit because of the thin overlay that assists with durability.

The half inner sleeve is great for easy on and off access for when you’re looking to change gears from the court to the streets.


Always having some big shoes to fill in the playability department, the Vapor 11 performed very similar to the Vapor X but provided even more stability, due in large part to the enhanced durability on the medial side of the shoe. Allowing for efficient movement throughout the baseline and forecourt, the Vapor 11 remained low-to-the-ground during many hours on court.

Apart from a great aesthetic (there are many more colour ways on the horizon in 2023), the Vapor 11 really did feel secure from the moment it was tried on. All in all, the Vapor 11 is a significant improvement from the Vapor React NXT.

Air Continues to Rule

Is there a more popular cushioning system than Zoom Air in the world of tennis shoes? Built with comfort in mind, the Vapor 11 will once again aid those players that like a stable ride around the court or enjoy sliding on hard-courts. Players of any age and ability will always appreciate a comfortable shoe, and that is where the Vapor series will continue to shine.

Final Thoughts

Having a serious legacy to live up to, the Vapor 11 was effective in bringing forth a silhouette that is both ultra functional and aesthetically pleasing. Providing more durability than many previous Nike models, the Vapor 11 will certainly be a hit on both Tours in 2023.

If you’re in the market for some new Nike on-courts kicks this Summer, the Vapor 11 remains a must.
