It's a different market than retros/basketball sneakers too.

On point. Roshes had MAJOR CROSSOVER mainly because of their pricing and their timeless silhouette. FKs, on the other hand, are for those who are really willing to spend +$150 on the latest Nike Running tech, whether it be for performance running or casual wear.

Price point/hype is keeping away non athletes is the more accurate statement for the time being, A real runner/athlete will pay anything for a quality/performance product and that is what Nike has finally developed here. Premium product that actually warrants a higher price unlike JB retros which even I will pay the inflated retail simply for the nostalgia.   Roshe's sat for at least a month before word of mouth about comfort/price then hype put them into extinction. 

 

Nike is the one controlling inventory and hopefully they increase production so I don't have to buy multiple colorways at once out of fear of them selling out.

Picked these up at the Montalban yesterday.  They remind me of Van Gogh's Starry Night.

complaining about resellers at montalban the whole time when youre not much different than them. pretty much summarizes sneakerheads these days ***** and moan about resellers and then turn around to do the same thing on the dl.

Finish Line has all of the colorways that dropped Friday in their system. I item located them and the only color in the trainers that are actually at stores are the orange and black, and the only color in the racers is the volt. There's only about 6 stores that have each though. (sorry I don't remember which ones) I tried to do an external order for the volt trainers and it let me, so whether or not I actually get them is another question. I'm assuming with the manufacturing problems all of the pairs have not gotten shipped and that's why they're not in that many stores yet.

the store at montalban is a specialty store so it's not strange that it says open next on thursday. best bet is to call ahead before heading down.

I stayed away from the banter b/c I didn't want to derail the thread, there has been alot of useful information come across for these shoes, keep it up.

 

We have probably seen the last of itsjerald in this thread, but rest assured, he will be lurking. (some) NT'ers are smarter than you think.

 

As for the release yesterday, I guess I didn't do my homework. I was looking for a 13, but the largest size available was a 12. I had a good buddy of mine wait in line for me and when he called to say no go on the 13, I ended up just buying his size for him as compensation for waiting in line.

He was telling me he had someone willing to trade him Deadstock Calypsos, Deadstock Mangos, Black Sails (All Rosheruns) and $125 on top of that.

I told him it was an alright trade so is it my fault? nerd.gif

Hmmm.. FNL getting Flyknits? So will they be excluded on the $20 off coupon?

Is it a $20 rewards coupon or $20 off $100? There are no exclusions on the rewards coupon, the $20 off $100 has exclusions and I'm sure these probably will be excluded.

It's a 20 off 100 and one of the three I have is a rewards coupon.

EDIT:

Hey all...longtime onlooker into this thread and a few others on Niketalk. I've been looking forward to the general release of Flyknit sneakers ever since I missed out on the first HTM drop. Once June rolled around, I started to hear of a late July Flyknit release from employees in 21 Mercer and Nike Stadium Bowery. Sure enough, that became a July 27th launch, which was the end reality.

 

I got to NTNY fifty minutes early, and there were already a bunch of people there waiting for both Ice FuelBands and Flyknits. Didn't matter for me though, as they let anyone waiting for Flyknits to go right up to the second floor. I tried on both models in the Volt colorway. After some major debating, I decided to go with the Trainer+, and in my true size. The Racer definitely felt lighter, but the transparent toebox did not look good at all to me. Plus, I'm a fan of the average-sized swoosh and more volt on the upper. Don't know exactly what I'll be using these for yet (whether its for casual wear or for the gym), but all I know is that I might have to pick up another pair to hold onto for whenever my first pair gets completely wrecked. To me, the Flyknit Trainer just has the look and feel of a classic down the line. Impeccable comfort and great execution of colorways due to the knitted material go a long way.

 

And here's a picture of the shoes, just for kicks:

Yes,  Flyknits w/Lunar soles are HTM editions.  They currently have them for sale at 1948 store in London.  Eventually they will have them at 21 Mercer.

any LA heads? PM me thanks


the NEW pair hasn't had any problems since last weeks.
the volt midsole ring near the toe gets VERY dirty though, luckily a friends getting me some JM cleaner
post #1158 of 84690

Does anyone else feel like the bulkiness of the Lunar sole takes away from the look of the shoe? I saw someone wearing the HTMs at NikeTown, and the upper just didn't look right compared to what it looks like on the Trainer+...

im sorry, i dont think i need to feel the need to lurk or hide behind some wrongdoing, ... i personally PMd the barkley guy who accused me and put me on blast .. but ill go ahead and paste what i wrote to him in a reply to the whole thread...

 

very dissapointing how people can draw conclusions about something when they were not even in that line.

 

and trust , there were many people in the front of that line getting favored. and there are people on IG, who can account for that,

 

ehhh, i dont have to explain myself.. but to appease all the insults, i will show proof..
