Exactly.  Don't like reading that when you try from thousands of miles away to get friends/family to get them for you to wear.

No these are absolutely for me. It's only 1 pair per person. Trust there are tons of those guys up at the front ..

Not to resell, I'm trying to judge the value, Bc I'm contemplating trading the one pair for 2 roshes calyps and mango, and want to know if that's a fair trade . Everyone here thinks I should be getting money on top of it ..

that's ridiculous. i dont know if serious.
a friend in line for me seen the front of the line grow. he said 95 pairs total. he's far back enough that it's doubtful he'll get any of our picks.
also they only have the six new colorways. that original post mentioning they would have the original three colors and three new colors was an error. they had actually deleted it a couple days ago.

Good to see everything is settled with the reselling fiasco. laugh.gif

I was gonna come in to say that jerald wasn't gonna resell them.

I want to see pics of all the HTMs. Every detailed shot you can get if they're on display. happy.gif

HTM are awesome. Too bad.
post #1091 of 84784
I had stopped checking for these because of all the confusion on the release date info. I just ended up on Nike's website randomly just to see they released and managed to cop a pair of the Orange Racers. Can't wait until they show up pimp.gif

You seriously thinking about trading a pair of HTMs for roshes?

Even if you got ten pairs of roshes, you still lose in that situation.

How about you get my size, I pay you and you go buy yourself some roshes.
post #1093 of 84784
how do these run, true to size, small? I can only find a 9.5 and I normally wear a 10 in pretty much all Nike shoes (Air Max's, Roshes, etc.). Also, what retail stores will have them besides Nike.com?

Yup Calypsos are hard to come by though especially if your looking for a specific size and Mangos can only be bought overseas until they release them in the states. Also putting money on top of that. Good luck with putting that puzzle together. laugh.gif

If you manage to its still a good trade for those HTMs.

I really do recommend trying them on. My size is 10 but I had to drop down to 9.5 because there was just enough room to bug me on the heel and toebox. 9.5 fits perfect for me with running socks and socksless.

I wear a size 9 in everything. Tried on the racers and they are TTS. Tried on the trainers and I'd suggest 1/2 size down. TTS in the trainers left too much room in the toe box and heel slippage. Had to cancel my order from NDC so I can order the right size for the trainers.
post #1097 of 84784
Wish I could have tried these on somewhere. No place close by where I live. Hope for me they fit tts even though lot ppl say .5 down
post #1098 of 84784
Damn it, they're off swoosh...Back to $150:|
post #1099 of 84784

Tried on the racers today and they fit true to size.  Makes your foot look extremely little, and they are kind of narrow.  I need the trainers in my life.

post #1100 of 84784
so if I normally wear a 10 you would suggest a 9.5 in the trainers?

For trainers I would suggest 9.5 being the better fit. You can still get away with wearing 10s too. Just get thicker socks.

Alright after waiting at 8am till 12:30 noon. I finally got inside, the customer in front of me got the last size of the blue/green multi. Sz 6. The yellow red sold out before I even got inside. Next pair to run low was volt. I managed a sz 9 . It was only 1 pair /customer. Although I saw one big white dude get back in line. Fck. They had plenty black and blue , the red was just right after the volts in terms of limited quantity.

They are nice man . They feel really light and awesome. Lunar sole is legit. I kind of wish I got back in line to get the black , so I could have a daily user. It didn't seem like there were too many people after me, max maybe 50-60. But then again with 246 pairs in the world or something. I feel lucky.

I'm tired. Gonna drink a beer and have oysters

As far as the line behavior- ehhh what can you do. I counted maybe 4-5 people who cut, in the front with their friends. Not sure if it could have made the difference in me getting any of the multi-colors. (the man did say that 6 was sitting around for 40 min) but all
In all. I enjoyed the people next to in line. We kept talking crap about the suburban parked in front of the store. I swear like 12 ppl hopped out that car. But it's all good. They deserve it if they were there from 10pm last night.

Edit: I also forgot to mention, that there was this bum who kept bothering us, holding a jug of carlo Rossi.. Lol, he got arrested, and was just heckling us. Crazy

*scratches head*.. Why do the safety oranges have a black nike swoosh?  If mine show up with a black swoosh I am going to pissed.  The white swoosh looks good on them in my opinion and in the pictures Nike provided on NDC they had a white swoosh.

Just stopped by Niketown to make sure that I ordered the right size in the trainers...ended up getting the Blue/Volts, Red/Oranges, and Black/Whites. Called and cancelled my order for the Blues and Volts. In person the contrast on the others was just pimp.gifpimp.gifpimp.gif

After just trying on the trainers here is my evaluation of the sizing:

I wear a 9.5 in almost every Nike shoe including Jordans and Nike Free 2.0s which seem to be the main comparison tools. I wear a 9.5 and also a 9 in Roshe Runs, which are shoes that I wear with socks and also sockless. I tried on the 9 and 9.5 in the flynknit trainers and here is how they felt:

9.5 (my regular size) - The fit is unbelievably comfortable. There is a little extra room in the toe which is pretty normal for me and is the same in my Roshe runs. I'd say it is the tiniest bit more room than in my Free Run 2.0s though.

9 (.5 size down) - The length was perfect. Only the slightest bit extra room but not constraining or uncomfortable at all. HOWEVER, the width of the shoe was noticeably a bit tighter. While the 9 would've been my choice length wise, at the thickest point of my foot right before my toes begin the 9 felt a little tight. I was wearing my regular low-cut socks.

Decision: I went with the 9.5. Personally I'm not a crazy runner and will not be using these for any sort of serious training, mostly for casual wear and casual working out/running short distance under 3 miles. The width issue would have bothered me a little during casual wear, and the little bit of extra length actually added a little comfort when the shoes are not tightly laced how I normally wear them casually.

For this reason I'd say that anyone simply buying these shoes for casual wear should go TTS. If you are going to be wearing these for serious training I would definitely recommend trying them on because I might've chosen to go 0.5 down for strictly running usage. Hope this helps, and for anyone that hasn't seen these in person...the contrast on the knitting is absolutely stunning pimp.gif Enjoy

Has anybody else noticed that it seems like there is a third model with a less structured upper? The blue/yellow pair with red laces in the picture above.

And also in the following photo, the 4 pairs from the crystal blue pairs to the red/yellow soles in the foreground
