Does anyone have a photo of the inside of the tongue on the white/ black unpadded trainers with the black trim ?

Aside from the aesthetics of the padded that many complain about, my main concern was the bloody heel that the new padded versions brought. I took pics and was ready to send in my complaints to Nike.

I wear thicker "crew"" or higher socks with padded trainers. Your heel gets used to the padded back after a few wears. It's like breaking in a pair of wingtips/dress shoes.


I've heard a small amount of cases like this. Weird though, cause waaaay more people were getting blisters/cut/bloodied/etc etc from the unpadded versions. Which is why they added the padding in the first place.

I guess Nike will have to figure out a new collar design. And even then I bet someone will get ankle cuts...LMAO

^ yeah I was one of those people to have their heel totally destroyed by the unpadded trainers. Was super pumped when the first gen trainers came out and thought I had found my new go to average workout running shoe. Got in unpadded blacks and broke them in for about a week before deciding to go on a 5k run in them. Wearing ankle socks that more than covered my heel I set off, halfway thru I could feel the back of my heels burning but I decided to just push through the pain and finish the run. Got home and immediately ripped them off and my previously white socks were completely stained red with blood in the back. Took close to a month before I could go on another halfway decent run again. Honestly it pissed me off and I complained to nike about it. Sorry if you guys who only wear flyknits for aesthetics got pissed off by them adding padding, but you can't expect to have my same situation happen to a bunch of people that are actually using the shoe for its intended purpose and have nike do nothing about it. It turned me and I'm sure a bunch of other runners off of using the shoe for actually running.

Nice pickup, but Flyknit Lunars have their own thread.

yup that's EXACTLY what happened with me. Was training for a 1/2 marathon in my blue glows, planned on using my volt racers in the actual race since they were lighter. The first week or so was fine, no issues. I started going on actual runs with the blue glows though & my heel ended up getting eaten alive. Bought them for the snug fit but I tried moving my feet around as much as possible to the front so my heel would be protected...HORRIBLE for my toe nails. Tried going 1/2 size up but they were TOO loose & caused blisters...needless to say late august 2012 was a horrible time for my feet laugh.gif

I ended up returning my trainers & racers both after my experience, wanted nothing to do with them until the padding was added. Running in my lunars is tolerable, I can tell my heel would be a mess if it wasn't for that padding added though because I can still kinda feel the pressure there.

Volt racers & trainers sell out in the blink of an eye. They don't last more than a few hours on Nike.com Good luck on future potential restocks (high unlikely).

Want a pair of MC Racers in 10.5 - Maybe 11 if people think you should go up a size! I noticed Nike and Run.com removed them from their sites - think they're done selling them? Maybe
