I believe they are the fat/medium laces. People mentioned buying these laces, which I did and I love em'.  It was replaced with ribbon because people complained about them become untied while running and what not.

 

 

I don't know if I'm allowed to post ebay links here but they were posted in regards to laces before, so here you go. I bought it from here. Also in regards to length, I forgot what length, maybe someone can chime in on this post.

Just found my original post from a couple months back after the lace swap for reference:

I hope Nike doesn't do to the flyknits what they did to roshes.  They retro'd original colorways only a year after initial release!

Thank for that info.

I think the flat ribbon laces do go with the shoe better tho. As mentioned, they flow better with the slim profile of the shoe.

My only complaint with the flat ribbons is they seem to untie a little too easily.

Are the rope laces that come with them straight from Nike that thick as the aftermarket ones you picked up tho?
post #15245 of 84784
no, the new balance ones are thicker and don't look as good as the original round laces.

I like using my flat ribbon laces on my Racers. And like someone mentioned, they're New Balance.

Flyknits have been heavy in the rotation since about early March when the temperatures started getting a little warmer. Primarily trainers and racers, a couple lunars and have recently added a couple chukkas for the cooler weather. But now that it's starting to get cold with below freezing temps and increased forms of precipitation, I'm finding it hard to put these away for more weather appropriate pairs as I have grown so accustomed to wearing them throughout the year

Hopefully the flyknit boot they are coming out with for the Olympics solves the winter problem. I'm interested in a pair but depening on the colors.

is there a big difference btwn a flyknit vs. a regular shoe (e.g. vans, etc..) in terms of coldness when you wear them during the cold weather?

Not a fan of aerial pictures. Ask for pics from the side and back from a normal angle. Luke's Locker has a size 7; not sure if that will fit.

Here's a photo of the FK Lunar 2s. 

 

 

 

Since the Trainers have a similar upper design with the Lunars, it's possible this upper design will carry over to the Trainers.  As for the Racers, nothing has been leaked as far as I know.

Trainers are firmer than the Lunars.

I think they are done with trainers completely and they will maybe put out more racer cws. I don't see them making a trainer 2. MAYBE a racer 2.
