The Total Orange racers release tomorrow in London at two stores. The Trainers came out on Saturday. 
Milan had a mid week release on the 17th at three stores, with pairs still available at Excelsior on the 18th (my colleague in our office over there picked up the grey/volt pair for me on the 18th).
Didn't win the raffle in NYC and it seems strange that only 16 people did, which i guess means either NYC got the smallest amount of shoes, or the staff bought them/got them for friends etc. 
Did NYC definitely not raffle the Racer?

wow! that's great to hear that they didn't sell out immediately in milan. everyone is too rich to bother with reselling there smiley: laugh
interesting to hear that the other spots dropped the orange pairs to the public. says a lot about the 21 mercer staff. i ain't mad though - i feel for them having to work in a shoe store for a living.

ive been checking nike harajuku's blog once in a while to see what's up there. surprisingly nothing. the first release they had lineups. not sure how they determine lineups vs. raffle. they raffled those vt camo forces kev lol. i dont know anyone locally so it doesnt really matter to me, but was just curious to see if theyd be selling the orange racers.

it's kind of interesting to me because imma be there in june and would like to know their system if anything else drops at that time. maybe the yeezys. i'd be sol if it was some japanese twitter format. lol @ raffle those camo vts. maybe they don't want a repeat of the yakuza/ueno af1 fiasco haha.

There is one pair of max orange racers on eBay as of now...the seller got them from 1948 London and says that 4 pairs were available for sale there.
post #126 of 84739
the orange pair looks insane. even if they were my size, i couldn't justify paying $1400.....or could i? haha.
post #127 of 84739
wow only 50 pairs of those. i wonder why they chose to number them all 001 instead of x/50. it is or best offer though for that pair, so not necessarily $1400 haha. but my size, not yours.
japan again? jealous. retail will probably be $300+ though with the crappy exchange rate. maybe we should be making friends in italia, especially with the euro faltering.

Congrats!  You will love them!
post #131 of 84739
oh man those are so damn nice.
post #132 of 84739
congrats man. when they dropped in japan, those seemed more popular than the trainers. i thought the white volt trainers blew those racers away, but they do look really good! so is the US track team gonna be sporting that colorway at the olympics or something?

apparently the us team will be wearing them at the opening ceremonies.  whether or not this is true remains to be seen.

Excellent pick up verysteri

I dig those more then the total orange colorway.
post #136 of 84739
not claiming to have confirmed info, but a friend who is friends with a nike rep (lol) told me that flyknits are pretty much for the athletes this summer, contrary to the rumors they'd be more available to the public in the summer, and that general production/release isnt set to begin until 2013. it might be a long wait...

I was told that Nike will release the GR versions of both trainer and racer at the end of July, (to coincide with the Olympics I would imagine) but they may only be available at brick and mortar stores, and not at online retailers, at least initially.

Nike are weird.
post #138 of 84739
Nikestore twitter said expect a release in the summer.

Not a solid confirmation considering nikestore twitter history.

Nike harajuku is raffling all three. Kev, make friends there now, cuz you need a japan mailing address to enter the raffle.

oh well. i've resigned myself to not getting any pairs from the second drop.
post #141 of 84739
^i want to say the same, but i know if i came across a pair of the orange racers in my size i would probably take the dive. i definitely cant wait to see what general release colorways they will come up with though...

How much did you pay for them and how is the fit?  True to size versus other Nike's?

True to size for the racer, but very narrow. not sure on the trainer, perhaps the same length but wider.
