I worked out in both. I am a big guy as well (190lbs) and felt more support in the lunars.

When calling Nike for orders, do you just say I am looking for an item (then recite the style number-color code, size)?

I did and they only had size 12 and size 13 :/  so unlucky lol , but I'm hoping there's a small chance for a restock.

As other have mentioned, the lunars are more supportive and provide more comfort.  The trainers and racers have a firmer ride compared to the lunars, but I prefer them over the lunars for my speed workouts or long runs where I need to maintain an ideal stride and foot strike.  I wouldn't recommend the racers if you're just getting into running.  The shoe is not too forgiving if you don't maintain a forefoot/mid-foot strike with a consistent cadence and lean in your posture.

Sorry for this but just want to help someone out or just going to return them

have a 10 Volt Racer if anyone is interested PM

post #15156 of 84861
It's been MONTHS since I've been in this thread. But does anyone know where to get Volt Racers? My Orange Racers are not enough, really want a pair of the Volts ohwell.gif

NDC doesn't have my size 6, and RRS doesn't even have them.

Have you tried half sizing up or down? I was only able to find a 9 in my volt trainer (9.5 is my true size) decided to pull the trigger and turns out 9s fit fine.

You can always easily return if they don't work out.

Exactly that. Sometimes you get dumb reps who aren't very helpful but the majority of the time you can grab releases that are no longer on NDC

Whenever I call, the representative can't even locate this item, as if it doesn't exist. It drives me nuts!  

 

Props to those have been able to get their pair this way.

My true size is actually 12 and my current trainers are in size 12 too.  I got the racers in 12.5 and they felt a bit better than the trainers with the extra space at the toe box.  Going TTS is doable, but now I want to get the trainers at 12.5 to get a similar fit to the racers.

I own the lunar 1 multi and I love the comfort, now I'm looking at the other models. I seen the multi color trainers on NDC buy I'm looking to pay below retail, any sites out there? Also I assume the multi racers are impossible to get unless it is on the bay?

You can try calling NDC for the MC racers.  I called two week ago and they had some sizes in stock, I think the biggest size they had was size 11.

Call NDC. They only have black trainers left, but they did have a couple of sizes available when I got my 8.5

Anyone else feel as though the ball is slightly being dropped as far as the racer/trainer releases go? There's so much
untapped potential for the racers and the trainers it's crazy imo

I want them to continue making the original trainer model in more colorways. I dont care if they are padded or not.

Yes. This applies to the Chukkas as well. I'm pretty miffed as to why Nike is doing this to be honest.. makes no sense.

Definitely agree. I haven't seen a decent new color way for the racers, trainers, or chukkas lately. Racers, okay the chlorine blues aren't bad but that's just one color way.

Agree. Its probably because of the season in which the shoe releases. Different seasons means different colors.

Newest pickups. Black/White's were from RRS and Volts were from NDC.
