Me neither. I'm actually thinking of selling my OG unpadded Whites and Blacks. I don't think need doubles of these. Especially not the Blacks. If I can sell them for more than I bought them for (just b/c they're unpadded)...why not?

The padded versions are great. Not that you should care what anyone else thinks of your shoes, but none of my peers even noticed the difference when I switched b/w padded and unpadded.

* Please do not PM me about buying. This was not an attempt to sell my shoes on NT...just a rant.

nobody buys their shoes so their peers can tell which version they are. it's about comfort, i prefer the unpadded and believe the padding defeats part of the purpose of the Flyknit.

This debate has been on-going since the first time padded trainers came about. My stance is more or less the same as yours and a few others on here. If i wanted padded shoes, I would go buy any other trainer in the nike line. Flyknits originally came unpadded and I wish for them to remain that way. The padding clearly disrupts the natural sock-like feeling of the original version. My trainer career already ended and I'm happy with what I've acquired (minus blue glows and squoias), focusing on racers from here on then.

My dudes, what does it matter. We get it, it's suppose to be a minimalistic shoe but padding was added for runners or not for runners.

It's a shoe and different people prefer different things. Buy what you like, what's comfortable, and quit worrying about the next guy and trying to persuade one side why your opinion is better.

Anyways, hope all the NTers that got their Volts enjoy them. Glad I could help out.

I had to go out and shell out more money, when they claimed that my pair was "pulled" and ready for shipment. Then I get screwed and am forced to pay $200+ on the resale market.

What you fail to realize is that both the racers/unpadded trainers and flyknit free have the same ankle hence the "sock-like" feel.

 

LOL

 

Stay out of this thread and go to the roshe thread.

someone get a little offended? I could call you out for being a reselling tryhard, but I think that has already been covered and this thread has enough redundancy. I have owned multiple pairs of unpadded trainers as well as racers, and I have tried on the free's just to see what they are like, so keep trying to preach like you know everything. Fact of the matter is the unpadded trainer is gone and it's time to move on. Apart from the racer, the free flyknit is the closest thing you are going to get to your oh-so beloved "sock-like" flyknit, it even has a collar. I won't even get into how comparing a sneaker, that has a thick sole, can be as comfortable as wearing a pair of socks alone.

I'll expect you will have six pairs of leopard roshes once they hit stateside, so maybe that thread is more appropriate for you.

Flyknit is meant to be a second skin, go view all of Nike press release videos. To some the addition of the padded heel detracts from that and adds a bulky feel. That makes all the difference for some people but not so for others and thats fine but thats the reason why its a big deal who favor unpadded.

 

Call me out as a reseller? How am I one? Sounds like someone is envy.

 

Please go on to the next "it" shoe. Back to the roshe thread you go.

this is my last response to you despite the burden that having pride can bring. I bought roshes upon their release, which is why i have some of the more sought after original cw's, and buying flyknits upon their original release, not jumping on a bandwagon a year later when some "it" colorway releases. I have watched this thread take the same course as the roshe thread, which I no longer even look in to, and have seen tryhards like you come and go. But go on, tell me to do exactly as you have done since you know the exact opposite is true.

p.s. no envy of your six closet trophies as I look like an idiot in 1's

So the "sock like feel" of an unpadded Flyknit provides is more important to you than the ACTUAL FLYKNIT UPPER?

Let's say from the get-go, Nike made all Flyknits (Trainers, Lunars, Racers, etc) with padding...you're basically telling me you, "would go buy any other trainer in the nike line"

If anybody's answer is yes...you're here for the wrong reasons.


Get out.

Lol I quoted dude, wrote out a nice rebuttal....

And it didn't take!?...

Dammit.

Flyknit upper is a sock like approach, free run flyknit just took it to the actual socklike.
post #11515 of 84784
Do I prefer unpadded? Yes

Am I going to spend extra time and money to hunt down an unpadded version of a color way (is white trainer)? Nope

Some of all make this padded vs unpadded thing so much bigger than it needs to be

But to each his own

If you're a flyknit diehard, it shouldnt matter about padding. I hate white shoes, so I excluded myself from all these arguements that was on going for the last 5 months. Imagine if you saw how the toe box used to look on these when production samples first came out during the olympics, you guys would argue about the roundness of the toebox and how it looks compared to todays toebox. If you don't like the shoe as a whole, then you should look for a different shoe to buy. Don't let something petty stop you from owning. Was actively on this thread until my eyes became sore from all these MC racers and padding talk. But I admit....It's funny as hell to see the arguments.

Why don't you guys just start PM'ing arguments to each other? Or you can give out your phone number and call each other. This way the thread can be useful instead of a bunch of pages of garbage.

I don't see why you are trying to start a fuzz here. The general topic on hand was padded vs unpadded flyknit trainers. You targeting my personal preference in sneakers in general is very irrelevant to the debate on hand. The complete statement was 'IF I wanted to buy a sneaker with padding, I could buy any other shoe in the nike line." I don't just buy any shoe in any of nike's lines unless I have a positive experience with it and it appeals to me in multiple ways.

 

I will honestly say if flyknit trainers originally released with padding and racers didn't, I probably wouldn't have thoughts about collecting trainers and just focus on racers alone (given the fact that I would have tried both on and not just making my decision solely based on looks). Now we can all safely assume that the racer will never become padded as that would defeat the purpose of that shoe. With that in mind, by adding the padding on new batches of trainers, effects of the original intended flyknit was diminished but Nike had to make that move to appease to a portion of the consumer base and increase sales.


If you have seen any of the promotional or interview videos with nike design members of this sneaker, you will constantly hear that the natural form fitting sock/t-shirt like feel is an intend of their design and of flyknit as a choice of sneaker material. Adding the padding clearly takes that approach away.
