If you want to use the Racers for performance, I'd definitely look at the Lunaracer3, which are a fraction of the price and feel so much better. The Trainers, on the other hand, I can stomach. tongue.gif Again, I understand we all have our preferences. happy.gif

 

completely agree with the lunars.  i've been using lunarglide 3s to run in and love it.  tried running in racers once, but agree with vader and others, they're pretty unstable to me, personally, as i don't always run on the balls of my feet.

With that being said, since I've started wearing Racers I can barely stand or force myself to wear the one pair of Lunars I have. Yes, they may be slightly more comfortable to certain people, but in terms of overall look and style, the Lunar sole is far less attractive (not to mention the added padding of the entire FK1 shoe).

awesome pics...can't wait for them.are those the new balance laces?how many inches long?

It's just the Racers that I dislike. The Trainers, I can stomach. If they only had colored outsoles, I'd have definitely own more than one right now.

I love running and am a forefoot runner. I've run only three official races though; two Fulls (PR: 3:30) and 1 Half (PR: 1: 36). When I get a shoe for running, I have good sense what shoe can help me perform better, and the Racers feel so obsolete compared to the other runners Nike has available, imo. I feel like I'd get injuried running in them.

+1 on this - I feel the same way.  If you have ever twisted an ankle (basketball injuries from the past for me) I'd recommend staying away from the racers.  They really are just some fancy flimsy fabric on top of some cushioned soles.  Great looks but that's it.

Yup.  Don't want/need the whites.  Very satisfied :D Took me about a year to get them all.

Nice! Out of all those I just want the red and the volt. Not a fan of the color blue or orange



Took advantage while these are still on sale, plus a $150 voucher (for something I paid $75 for), comes out to $105 free shipping for both pairs pimp.gif

How are people still getting these from nike.com i thought they have Ben down for a while now ? Ben looking for a 10.5 for a while now.

I'm an actual "real" runner. Not to go into detail. But the racer is a great shoe. As well as the comfort. I won't say you are getting the wrong size because it honestly just seems like u don't like them in never will.

They do not feel unstable to me and you won't get hurt running in them, trust. It's a great running/racing shoe. Not meant for training, but it's possible without any mis haps. Not sure why there are a lot of complaints.

One of my favorite nikes and this is coming from someone who has trained/ran in the lunar trainer, lunaracer and lunar eclipse so please don't kill me rhay

Am I the only one who thinks the dark grey racers are a clean, simple colorway?

Sat on my hands too long. Meant to come in here, or call Nike, and ask if the flyknit racers run small. I'm a sz 13 and was foolish to think that a sz14 in the MC racers would last long on NDC mean.gif
