I agree, they'd be so sick. Pretty much looks like a totally different shoe.

I have a few shoes that Nike overcharged me on (vs the Suggested Retail sticker) so I might complain about those tonight and try to get a gift card for the difference. Apply that along with the 26% from the clearance code/eBates for a nice little price drop. I know I'm probably gonna butcher the custom job so I wanna get them for as cheap as possible laugh.gif.

If your running in these please please know your stride and what your getting yourself into.

These aren't for stability or flat footed runners. Neutral would work, but don't just get these and start running in them and complain they are terrible.

^Don't even own a pair yet (one is on the way) but this is good advice.  Bought mine for in-gym training and casual use

I wish I could go sockless but after a few wears they start to smell too bad laugh.giflaugh.gif. Not to mention this winter has been brutal so I need to wear socks or else I'll have frostbitten toes.

 

i buy super no-show puma socks from marshalls. they're like $6 for 3 pairs i think. they're low enough to clear my racers and every other shoe i own

Yeah, that's my only hangup.  If I screw them up, I wasted $100+, lol.  I think I'm definitely going to have someone paint 'em for me.  I don't want to half *** 'em and feel like an idiot.

He said it was airbrushed and painted with Angelus fabric paint. I might order them when I get home and try it out laugh.gif.

how would one do this? I just ordered a pair of E greens and would love to black out the tongue and swoosh if possible.

over in the new balance thread, for people wanting to do "custom" 574 IDs (to get the purple devil, red devil, pink devil, etc. look), they take 8 parts black fabric paint to 2 parts water and just use art paintbrushes to dab in the paint layer by layer.  i guess just repeat the process until the whole thing is blacked out.  the water helps it seed into the fabric easier for those wondering

 

i only advise this, as opposed to physically trying to paint the tongue, because i can see a lot of user error occurring; seeing that once you "accidentally" touch other parts of the shoe, there's no turning back.  i dont wanna be seeing a bunch of blacked out "custom" flyknits for those who mess up :lol

How do you use ebates? Is there a code I enter? Or if I click through the ebates link to the nike store, it automatically deducts the 6% when I check out?

You need to sign up for an ebates account first: http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=yqIL%2Fu76ZS8XzKtvLLeDpw%3D%3D

 

Once you have an account, you just access the store you want to purchase from on ebates.com (scroll through stores to find Nike in this case).  If you're logged into your account it will track your purchase and eventually record the % back you get

 

You won't see the deduction on your Nike store purchase, the cash back only shows up in ebates, but it will be there.  Otherwise you can email them if by some chance it doesn't show up.  It can take a few days sometimes

not a bad consolation prize for those (such as myself) wanting the black/white trainers/racers. 


These are flames. Presale though?

Ever since Nike did away with the padded ankles and oval laces, prices on the OG's have risen.

Padded or not eBay prices are absurd (padded white/black sold for $310?!).

 

I'm just glad I got mine for retail last summer.

These were mine. I don't know much about customizing, all I know is he air brushed it using some sort of fabric paint. The paint didn't say perfect for long though since the Flyknit material stretches, so some of the paint came off, but they were still much better with the black tongue IMO.

Yeah I kinda thought that the paint wouldn't hold up too well due to the nature of the Flyknit. It looks too good not to try though laugh.gif. I just ordered a pair a half size up to kinda limit the stretching and I have some ideas on how to better paint them. I'll let everyone know how it goes once the shoes and paint/supllies are delivered.

probably the best idea is to dye them since they are fabric

Hypothetically, couldn't we get pleasing results by using a black sharpie?  

 

I'm asking an honest question, since I've never tried any sneaker-customizing myself.

Annoyed that they didn't reply my email after I got my first cancellation, not sure why RRS are being such diks about it.
