They look different.

Also, none of the racers have a padded heel collar so it gives you more of that "socklike" feeling. The racers are also a bit tighter around the middle of your foot. Regardless, I found that going the same size as the trainers fit perfectly for me.

In comparison to the trainers, the racers' knitting has a lot more gaps, allowing for better ventilation and flexibility throughout the shoe. It still feels sturdy though.

To me, those are the only "big" differences of the two shoes. Maybe I'm missing some things that a fellow NTer would like to point out. You should definitely buy a pair of the racers. Trainers used to be my favorite Flyknits but I think the Racers have finally won me over

Thanks for the info sir. You shall receive a rep.

Aside from the visual difference, racers are actually more comfortable compared to the trainers. Racers have more ventilation as you can see on the toebox as well as the entire lateral side (all those holes). The soles are also different. Racers have more grip and traction versus the trainer. Lastly, the racers are lighter than the trainer by just a tad bit.

I'm the opposite. The Racers feel less stable. My foot feels like it's sitting on top of the shoe whereas the Trainers I feel like my foot is in the shoe. 

 

OP, I suggest finding a store (maybe locate a run.com affiliated store near you) that carries Racers and try them on. Everyone's foot is different.

I'd save it for some of the new CWs as long as it doesn't expire

All of the unpadded versions of the "newer" colorways that I have come across seem to be only made in size 10 (which I believe is the sample size for this shoe.) Not sure if this a coincidence or if they actually made size runs. I wouldn't get my hopes up of receiving those unpadded. But it could happen....

I don't recall this being recently posted, but Running Warehouse has several sizes in the multicolor Trainer that are currently NOT available on RRS

http://www.runningwarehouse.com/descpageMRS-NFNT12.html

Sizes 5 - 11 (including half sizes) are in stock except for size 10.

I believe that the racer has a higher collar than the trainer and is more of a low-profile shoe than the trainer as well. I am referring to the hight of the midsoles.

I think the white swoosh works well with that color way.

Just got the squadron blue trainers this morning. Trying to find a pair of the volt racers so that I can pull the trigger. These are the only shoes I have ever doubled up on. Too smooth.

The white swoosh looks great! Nice summer color.
