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?
I would like them better with thinner laces. Good start though. Those laces just look too bulky for me.

not really digging those laces...maybe they are just too fat for the shoe and it's not really the orange that bothers me most.  i still prefer the black.

 

i guess i should provide my feelings on the sizing for these since i now have some.

i would say def don't size down in the racer and i would say it's probably possible to size down in the trainers, but

i'm not sure if the fit would be better.  i have both the racer and the trainers tts...there isn't any room to spare in the

racer, there is maybe a half-pinkie to pinkie width room in the trainer length wise.

Thanks for your opinion. I went a half size down for the trainers. They hurt my feet a little the first two days but they feel great now. I definitely know if I went TTS on the Trainers, my feet would slide around in them. I ordered some of the racers and went a half size down as well. Im kinda worried not but I guess I will have to wait to see. NDC is out of my size in both colors so I would search elsewhere if they a half size down in the racers is too small.

the biggest issue for me with that lace swap is that they are too thick. it ruins the lines for me. not a fan of the color blocking either, but that's personal preference. anyone can slap any color they want as long as they like how it looks. but in my opinion it definitely needs skinnier laces.

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.

so crazy. i feel the same way. mine showed today and i was amped until i tried em on.

since the shoe conforms to the shape of your foot, it gives them a different look. i have a wide foot and thats not flattering with this type of setup. the sides of my foot kinda lean over the sides of the shoe. just not a good look. also i wear my shoes laced loosely which is not an option with these. they must be tied firmly. im a true 10.5 so i decided to go TTS and there is more space in the toe area than i really need/like. i shoulda grabbed a 10. i know the majority of size 10's on NDC are sold out by now tho. have no idea what i wanna do with these. spent 318 on two pair and i def dont feel like i should.

i hate em on my foot but love em every time i take em off. its crazy. seriously thinkin about sending em back.

and anyone notice a funny swoosh kinda sound everytime you take a step? its kinda annoying.

claim means nothing since they're built for different purposes. As far as running/training this is as comfortable and light as you can get.

My pair arrived today, very impressed. Well done Nike!

Planned to get a 2nd pair (wanted to try for size before getting a 2nd pair) and Nike doesn't have any of the trainers available in my size. Demand for these is amazing, 10 color ways and lots of sizes are sold out.

Yes I think that looks much better than my neon orange laces. Thanks for the photo!

Has anyone actually stock located from their local Finish Line and been successful? Will they ship to your home or local store and do you use just the product code on the box label to find them in their system?

I don't know why I passed on these in the first place, and now I'm regretting it. This is a joke with people asking $220+ on the bay for them.

So I just got my packages...the TTS racers fit PERFECT! Those trainers though...well they don't fit bad BUT I feel like those should've been TTS as well. I love them in person, wanted to break the trainers in immediately & was thinking about it all day, now the size thing has me 2nd guessing it & trying to seek out a 10.5 eyes.gif

I definitely didn't need to order the full size down AT ALL, those didn't even get tried on.

My sizing perspective:
Free Run 3 size 10.5 fits nice & snug, perfect for running
Free Run 2 size 10.5 fits slightly big but not enough to change sizes
Pegasus 27 size 10 fits ok, part of me wishes I had a 10.5 but they've worked for over 15 months now(feels just like the flyknit trainers sizing wise IMO)
Lebron 9 size 11 fits great, perfect size in those for casual wear, slightly big for basketball but best overall fit
Lebron 9 size 10.5 fits, my 1 size 10.5 will be used for basketball but definitely prefer the 11
Jordan 11 concord & white/red low size 10 fits perfect size-wise
Jordan 11 concord & cool grey size 10.5 fits slightly big, a little heel slippage but nothing horrible for casual wear
Jordan 12 obsidian size 9.5 fits slightly snug(no slip at all but not tight)
Jordan 12 playoff size 10 fits slightly big, minor heel slippage but nothing to complain over for casual wear)
Air Max 95 team orange & sport red size 10.5 fits perfect length-wise, slightly wide in the forefoot but I don't think a 10 would be better IMO
Air Max 90 infrared & laser blue size 10.5 fits snug but perfect(similar to free run 3)

Hope that helps someone out.

Wish I could post pics of this, I noticed the racers tied tight for running don't have the "bulge" as if the material is stretching & no extra space as if the shoe is too big. The trainers have a mini "bulge" around the laces almost as if my feet were too fat for the shoes, I thing because the material had to reshape slightly...further letting me know I possibly need a 10.5.

I'm going to try it tomorrow.  I had called Finihline and was assured they'd be on the website but that they didn't have a specific release date and that my best bet was to just kept checking.

my volt trainers finally came in today from NDC and im am so glad i went with a 12 instead of my usual 13. im not planning on wearing these with socks and they are perfect.

i knew how light these were but when i was carrying the box home today it was like nothing. usually my big ( )( ) size weights a ton.

Has anyone run in these yet without socks? How do they feel, any hotspots?
post #1340 of 84714
I stock located 2 pair from finishline. 2 seperate transactions. One pair shows (070) as it being filled and in route and the other has no activity(010). They seem to be coming from a store or the warehouse in Indianapolis. I called customer service and they cant even locate these shoes yet. They said to just have a store do a stock locate. Hope this helps.

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

Same situation, I ordered both trainer and racer, I think I will keep the volt trainer and return the racer, the racer just don't feel and look right to me. They are too narrow and I cant feel any cushioning in these flyknit, I have all the men's color way of the Roshe Run except the yellow and stadium. They are just awesome, both the price and style. These flyknit are fancy though, but I rather get 2 pairs of Roshe and some change instead.

070? Do you mean 700? Did you have them shipped to you or your local FNL?


BTW that Hurricane Vapor Jacket KD and LBJ have on looks dope! I just wish they had side pockets...
