Thanks for the release info and please stop arguing about opinions. It really just clogs up the thread and makes it harder to find the useful info.

Nothing wrong with voicing opinions/arguing/debating over which is better. Insults however shouldn't have to be thrown around. The guy unintentionally did so and apologized for coming across as insulting so all good.

Personally they're both shoes are welcomed in my house; racer for biking and trainers for everything else.

I agree with this. From a performance standpoint, I see no problems with owning both the volt Trainer and Racer. However, from a purely aesthetic point of view, I would just stick with one. At the end of the day, though, everyone makes their own call and has their own purchasing behavior.

Haha, as long as it doesn't reach the level of other threads (e.g. DB3), then it'll be all good.

Good lord, the one friggin time I don't check this thread when I wake up and I miss another restock on the Volt's.

Did they have a size 9.5? I know someone posted the sizes at one point, but when they went up was there a 9.5?

Guess I'm stuck with the 10 I bought months ago, smh

What exactly is "factual" about my avatar?

 

I see no connection to my avatar with my opinion with flyknit trainers and racers. That's just ignorant on your part.

 

I had a chance to buy multiples of a certain shoe that I love in my size.


Dude chill out. Over this bickering. Like I said, it was not my intention to upset you. I was just joking around. I'm happy for you and your 6 pairs of Jordan 1 royal blues. Sincerely.

I'm sorry I even tried to joke. Dudes are sensitive on the internet. Jeeeeeze.

^ Nice pics man. Orange trainers add a nice burst of color when worn with dark pants (same can be said of the Red Trainers as well).
post #11173 of 84713

I dont know if anyone mentioned this already. But has anyone steam fitted there flyknits? I know Nike was offering it a while back when the flyknit ones dropped. Suppose to make the shoe tighter and more custom fit. I was wondering if anyone has done it to theres yet.

I would hate to spend cash on a Volt Racer if I already had or could hold out for the Volt Trainer.

Volt Racers are weak/redundant versions of the Volt Trainers.

Couldn't disagree with you more smh

Yes, 6-7.5,9.5,11,12 and 13 were the first sizes to pop up. A few moments later the rest of the sizes I posted appeared.

^ Damn! I dropped the full $150 back last August. Oh, well.

What's the deal with the MC Racers? Sorry for showing up late to the party, but these were all over Shanghai and I thought it would be the same back home, but nothing.

Yeah man, i paid retail too in early late July/early Aug AND the size was a half size too big, but i guess i can manage.

As for the MC Racers, they weren't as available as the MC Lunar 1's.

Just got shipping confirmation from NDC on my white trainers. I threw a couple pairs of shoelaces into the order to get free shipping, so what does Nike do? Ships the shoelaces in their own little package and the trainers are still "preparing to ship." Nike's playing games with me lol

Weird.. im not familiar with what that term means exactly but a couple weeks ago I had a Nike rep ( obviously took it with a handful of salt) say the production date on these was Jan 2nd '14, but then again 2 days before that another rep said that was a definite restock date for the MCs on the schedule, so who really ever knows i guess
