I'm debating on which one to get right now. I'm most likely leaning towards the Trainers though because of the Volt colorway as well as the Orange/Blue color way. Is there much difference between them?

It really depends on what you need them for. If it is for casual wear or regular running go with the trainer. If it is for serious running or you like the design of the racer go with them.

Great pix everyone. I hope Finishline receives the Flynits soon. I'd like a few more colors using my cousins discount. I'd def like to pick up the red trainers next.

All the pictures are looking great, can't wait to get my sprite/seahawk colorway trainers in tomorrow

post #1296 of 84695
I couldn't pull the trigger on the blue/green HTMs for $600.
post #1297 of 84695

Got my trainers and racers in for my girl and I. Racers fit perfect TTS, the Trainers are a bit long in the toebox TTS, but the width feels good. I feel like if I go down half size, the shoe will be too narrow. Overall happy with them. I need to get the white/black pair now. Maaaan it's guna be a long summer...

yeah. i thought the general release would take some of the momentum away from the resell price. almost seems like the opposite even though there are more pairs of this HTM release than the other two mean.gif
post #1299 of 84695
Good news!

post #1300 of 84695
Ive been talking to stuntman about this, but now is not the time to give in to those reseller prices on HTMs. The mixed color ones havent even been released in all markets yet. Let all the ones with deep pockets buy what's sitting out there now, and try to drive down prices when the next wave pops up. congrats on getting a pair though.

No love for the Blue Glow / Volts??!!

My pair came in today, and I'm kinda disappointed. I had such high expectations for this shoe. Don't get me wrong, The Flyknit is nice and it's definitely a light shoe, and the colorway is insane!! The volt really pops. BUT, I have really wide feet and I expected/hoped that it would be just a tad more roomier. Especially in the rear of the shoe. & I'm obviously not a runner, so this setup may be beneficial to those who do.

Also, I tie my shoes loosely, if I tie them at all, and I wouldn't recommend that for these. The tighter you tie them, the better they feel.

Why the hell does it matter to you what one man plans to do with his shoes/money?

I think the stigma is more associated with the idea with "if he didn't buy to flip, someone who actually wanted them could have bought them". Correct me if I'm wrong.

The pair I ordered Friday morning came in. Wish the swoosh was white like the sample photos, but they're still a sick!

I was about to post pretty much the same thing.  I hate Nike, I have a slightly wide foot and range from 11-12 in their sneakers.  I mostly wear "running" shoes now (Lunars, Air Max) and just about all of those are 11.5 and fit well.  I used to wear 11s in AF1 and Dunks, for example.  Only 12s I have are some narrower retro Air Max.

 

I ordered the Flyknit Trainers...2 pairs of 11s (volt/black & blue/orange) and 2 pairs of 11.5 (blue/volt & white/black).  The 11s aren't even close to fitting, the 11.5s are tight too (without even tying the laces).  I might just keep 1 pair of 11.5 and return the rest, I don't even know.  I feel like a 12 would actually fit me best but I wouldn't be surprised if I get them and my feet are moving around in them.

But why should it matter to him? Resellers should stop just so he, or anyone else, could get a pair?

Kudos to look out for others, but at the end of the day, if it gets you money - Why not? There's no harm in it.
post #1309 of 84695

and why should my opinion matter to you? this is a message board right and im just making a comment.

Yeah I feel ya man. I'm on the fence on whether I want to return these or not. I'm usually a 13 in Nike (Lebrons, SBs, AF1s), and a 12 in Jordans. I'm a 12 in Roshe, and everyone was like go TTS, but I was skeptical so I split the difference & went 12.5. Aint no way in H-E double hockeysticks I could do a 12, and the 13 would have too much room in the toe. mean.gif

BTW, in regards to comfort, ROSHES >>>>>> FLYKNITS. (& no the $70 price point has nothing to do with my claim!!)

It doesn't really bother me but you're on a sneaker messageboard and reading a thread with people who are (you'd think, for the most part) genuinely interested in the shoe.  Kind of makes sense that some would be bothered by resellers buying up stock and driving the price up if they could've otherwise purchased them at retail.

Well the fact of the matter is that as long as there is significant demand, resellers will be here to stay.
post #1313 of 84695

Has anyone actually ran in the racers? Curious to hear thoughts about them.

I ended up getting the orange and volt racers and am planning on using one pair to run in. Hopefully they dont suck.

I ran 3 miles in them yesterday and I really liked them. It has been some time since I have run in anything similar, probably the Streaks. I thought the cushioning was great for how light the shoe is and I also thought that the fit was incredible. When I first put them on they were a little tight in the toe, lengthwise, but as soon as I started running I didn't even notice. For an everyday runner I am going to use the trainers which to me run as nice as the Lunaracer which have been my favorite everyday running shoe since they first came out.

well nike messed up my order and sent me two pairs i didn't order and left out the two i did.  of course my size in now sold out of the volt and 

black/white trainers.  just annoying how little nike cares about their customers.

post #1319 of 84695
Ok so I went and got orange laces for my Volt Trainers to try to emulate this photo:



Here is the comparison shots: (Iphone photo's, sorry for the quality)





So I have been wearing them with the orange laces, but im starting to have a change of heart. I think that the orange looks good because it breaks up the volt. However the original photo from which I derived my inspiration has some differences. The green is a less subtle lime green instead of volt (highlighter green) and the laces are a regular orange instead of a neon orange. I am going back to the black laces for the time being and I'm going to look for regular orange laces. I am asking an opinion because I am curious, not because I cant formulate my own ideas (people asking on here what they should buy).
What does everybody think?
