yea man, if these end up everywhere deals will be had. I paid retail for 3 pairs with no regrets, so it's not like I'm counting on it.

Thanks for the heads up on the FL drop. I went to one local spot and the manager simply said they couldnt stock locate. Called up another and they said "sure come right in". They let me use my rewards 20$ off on each pair i ordered. Manager recommended doing separate orders just in cause one didnt get filled the other would come through. Wow, the difference between two different managers! Hopefully both pair go through. Thanks again for the info!

Dang xfile 11's pictures make the size difference of the trainers and racers very noticable. Now I'm even more nervous about sizing.

Thanks. It does appear to be the same jacket. Now I just have to find that color-way.


^^^^To all of you waiting, I ordered my volt pair last weekend and received them on Friday and the wait was the worst!

Good to know!

Wow the hype really picked up after this weekend. At least here in the Bay Area. I was lucky enough to get a few pairs on swoosh when they had them discounted (shipped this morning) and was able to get a pair at NTSF with the employee discount on Sunday. But a lot of sizes seemed to be selling out/sold out on sunday when I went in there. I picked up the Volt racers and trainers, red trainers, black/white trainers, and orange racers. I have a feeling production will pick up on this hype though. I just can't wait for Lunar soles (GR).

There is a significant difference in overall size of the shoe but not as great in the sizing of the shoe, if that makes sense. The trainer is bulkier in every way. There is less knit material, the holes are much larger and more pronounced in the racer. After running in my volts and casually wearing my white/black tonight I think that there will be a little bit of 'forming' that happens with this shoe. The toe (length, not width) of my racers is a little tight with a tts 11 for me. I went tts on the trainers as well and they fit like a glove. That being said, there is a noticeable difference in the fit before and after a 3.5 mile run. I think that the racer will loosen up a touch after a run as well and be perfect. I like the fit tighter though.

Yeah. To me, that sucks but is also good. It's good because at least the shoe is going to have success. It sucks because as I have seen on this forum, people buy so many pairs for no reason. Therefore, makes it impossible for anyone else to try these shoes. I waited until 2 am EST on July 27th and refreshing the Nike.com webpage every couple of minutes so I could my size and color. Unfortunately, it didn't show up until I woke up at 9 am EST. Every color except Black were out of size 13. Pathetic on Nike's part because they didn't limit purchase for the consumers. I do hope production speeds up and they spread to other online retailers so I can get the one I wanted. I was forced to buy .5 size down for the color I wanted. I hope they fit or I will be going through the hassle of a return.

That makes perfect sense. So glad I went with my tts 11 on the trainers. Got a pair of size 11 racers yesterday and they fit like a glove. Your post regarding sizing just erased all my doubts if i ordered the correct size. Thanks! 

 

Am I the only one who didn't receive shipping email from nike? Seems like everyone already got theirs... mean.gif

As far as I know, RRS didn't get the volt trainers. I'm calling them on wednesday to check if they have new colorways from their weekly shipment of new stocks.

I have been won over by the Trainers. Not getting Racers anymore. Now the decision on which color way to get. Just need one pair of these.

Nice deal waverder! What size are they? We are the same size so I'll know if I need to go .5 down or not.
post #1245 of 84805
Nice pics waverder. I'd love to find some of these locally.
I'm about to let go of a ton of Size 11 stuff...

UPS dropped my pair off just now and threw them on immediately. I plan on putting this pair to work.....





A few more group shots-I think I am done with the racer unless some crazy "gotta have" colorway drops.





post #1248 of 84805
Finally got my shipping confirmation this morning....should be here by Thursday pimp.gif

Nice shot!

-edit-
Now that I'm seeing a really detailed pic, will the upper look Electric Greenish in person, or is it just the lighting?

^ It's just lighting. The shoes are definitely volt.

Order got canceled from Nike... I will never understand why they don't ship to Canada.

Now on the look for a pair in size 11.5 / 12 around retail...

my guess for not shipping to Canada is buyers not paying the international fees and packages being returned.  Nike seems to deal with ups and they often add on a significant amount of ridiculous brokerage fees to imported products.

post #1254 of 84805
Has anyone tried to do a custom steam fit?

Also, anyone thinking of doing anything to these, especially the lighter colors, like putting scotchguard on them to protect them from dirt?

I run along paths in the city and my shoes get so dusty, would love to find a way to keep these colors bright.

If one of the 11.5s I ordered is too big and you'd be okay with paying like $161 + Paypal + shipping, I'll help you out.  Or if I can get a pair with a discount otherwise.

Never thought about this! It does make sense. UPS brokerage fees are sometimes ridiculous!

Wow thanks a lot! It's the 1st time I see a thread on NT where people help eachother out lol. What color / model?
post #1257 of 84805

just called up nike and order a pair on the racer in orange.  I really wanted the volt color ones, but I don't mind owning the orange ones, while waiting for the  volts to come in stock!!!
