In a nutshell, the nike rep I spoke wants to verify this was done in order to give me a price adjustment on an order I placed 3 weeks ago.

lol, the nike rep is gonna get in trouble

Received my white trainers from Dope-factory today and they are unpadded... So very disappointing.

wait a minute--they're unpadded AND your disappointed?  I know more than a handful of people who would love for that to happen.  Unpadded whites are pretty damn rare...

I have unpadded white and wish a had padded. With really narrow feet my black padded pair fits better than my whites. Completely agree with this man which is surprising because I was in favor of unpadded when the newer ones started rolling out.

It's not just the unpadded that makes it feel flimsy, but I'm a fan of the ribbon laces also.

Nobody's reselling anything. I said I'm disappointed because I didn't expect to get an original version a year after it's initial release. Hop off my nuts.

what's the deal with this padded and unpadded stuff?

what part of the shoe is unpadded?

and how do i know which kind i got from nike recently (i did a phone order with them, but they weren't available online)?

thanx in advance.
post #15073 of 84684

padded comes with rope lace and the heel collar has not padding on it. It gives you a tighter feel, better with no socks, sometimes slices your heel up if you are not wearing socks.

 

Padded comes with ribbon laces, they untie easily, doesnt slice up your heel and have padding on the heel collar.

 

unless you are putting miles on these, it really doesnt matter between padded or non padded. The debate has been beaten to death in this thread. .

Back when nike made the switch to padded. I got the white trainers and half sized down thinking if get unpadded. Ended up with padded from run.com and wore it anyway. Even with thin nike socks wasn't comfortable for long wear. Kinda regret not returning thinking there wouldn't be a restock.

Does anyone own flyknit trainers in the neo turquoise colorway?  If so, can you please post some on feet photos?  I can't seem to find an on-feet shot that represents the colors accurately.

most prefer the unpadded for that "sock-like" feel and that's how they were originally, but to each their own.  the trainers out these days are padded - nike switched over due to the running community complaining of achilles rubbing.  the racers are unpadded.

post #15082 of 84684

my trainers are coming today from Dope Factory..really hope they are padded

I've got $200 PayPal ready for any DS or maybe worn lightly 2-3 times White/Black FlyKnit Trainers in a size 10. I have been looking everywhere for these and can't find them. A few pop up on eBay but just haven't had luck with my size.
