After I wore mine in the gym yesterday I left them in my car to wear them in the gym today. When I put them on today I'm almost positive the toe area is fitting tighter. I'm wondering if the heat in my car could havr somehow caused them to shrink a little.

Just got mine! So stoked! Had to go down half a size in the trainers, noticed a lot of heel slippage in the 9.5.

Finally got my Racers in today. Glad I went a half size down. I have been wearing my Trainers for a week now and as soon as I put on the Racers I noticed immediately how much better they feel on my feet. They feel like they wrap around my feet and conform to my feet much better than the Trainers. My only qualm is that they are much brighter in person. I really prefer the color-ways in which the base color in not so bright and the details are bright and/or intricate. Much like the volt and red ribbing in the first Blue Racer HTM color-way.

I've put 20 miles in so far and overall I am really happy with the shoes. My one down side is that my calves are killing me. Anyone else getting this? I am used to running on Lunars so I am wondering if I am not used to the zoom.

This!

I had the opportunity to try them on today. I tried on both (Racers & Trainers). With regards to size, for me, the Racers definitely felt TRUE to SIZE. They're significanty more narrow than the Trainers, which felt 1/2 size bigger.

When I tried them on I wasn't too impressed. Like Picasso, I was wearing FRs to the store, and I felt they were more comfy than the FKs. It may be a stretch to some, they felt like a more breathable, lighter and performance version of the Roshe Run. They both look AMAZING though, especially the Trainers.

From a runner's perspective, they seem
Ilke they'll perform well. Their soles are FIRM, their outsoles are pretty lower to the ground compared to Lunars and the other traditional cushion heavy runners. Firm soles and a more closer to the ground profile are components of a good tempo shoe. Looking at both their outsoles (Racers & Trainers) has me concerned about their life span, as both soles looked really thin compared to Lunars. If I were to guess how long they'd last, I'd estimate 250-300mi.

All in all, despite their AMAZING look and construction process, considering components of fit, comfort and presumed durability, I honestly think $150 is a robbery for these. I'll gladly wait for the Lunar One+, which'll pobably be cheaper.

I agree with you Ray that the Free's are more comfortable than these. I am happy with my purchase and my Flyknit's are a welcome addition to my sneaker rotation. My opinion is for comfort FR2>FR3≥Flyknit. The FR2's are the most soft upper combined with the flexibility and cushioning of the Free Run sole. The flyknit upper is definitely more stiff as is the sole. The Flyknits form to your feet after a couple of wears, but I is hard to justify a collection as large as your's Ray, at $150 a pop. Especially when with a little searching GR Free Run 2 and 3's can be found for around $60. And you can always OD on the NikeID withe the Free Runs.

On a side note, I like lunar racer soles, but sometimes I feel like my foot moves too much on top of it. Almost the sensation of standing on a couch cushion, soft but not always the most stable.

Comfortwise, I'd rank the FR2s, 3s and FKs exactly as you have, Cody.

Personally, I'd look elsewhere if I was looking for a performance shoe.

Contrastingly, as a casual sneaker, I'd welcome Zoom FKs (for $90) into my collection with no question, but $150 is just too much for me. If I were to spend that much, I want everything (or mostly) to be the way I want it (NIKEiD).

Not sure, but they sure pop on TV.... Nike is absolutely winning this Olympics with all of their volt shoe collection + USA podium jackets.

Just a heads up for those like me that need a different size.
That's very tempting.. I just want one of the black / white CWs for running.

Also good reviews guys! I've only run in Frees so far and I'm very interested to see the differences.

It's most likely due to the flyknits having a lower heel to toe drop (difference in height between the heel and the toe) than most Nike running shoes. The smaller the drop, the more stretch your Achilles gets and the more work your calves have to do. Most traditional running shoes have a 12 millimeter drop. For example, Free run 5.0s have a 8 mm drop. 3.0s have a 4 mm drop. I haven't seen the official measurements, but if I had to guess, the racers are prolly in the 4-6 mm range and trainers are prolly 6-8 mm. That's how they felt to me.

really wish the first htm trainers weren't so limited, hard to find, and priced so high.  i'll probably be looking for a 9 for a long time...

They all crease like that. Remember, there is very little structure to these. They're like socks with laces and a sole unit attached.

Head's up Swooshers, Trainers and Racers are back up on discount. Looks to be all small sizes though. Hoping they restock the white trainers soon with the discount...

Just ordered the last size 11 of the Volt Trainer at NTNY. They were already sold out of sizes 10 and 10.5. Not sure what sizes they had in the other colorways...
