I did the same thing to a pair of volt Lunar1's based on these photos.  I used Angelus or something similar paint with a fabric softner Golden 900 or something.  Anyway, I was happy at first but 3 months later the paint faded and it wasn't worth it IMO. I used a small sponge type brush and went through and through every hole in the tongue.  Took FOREVER. 

 

 For what it's worth.

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.

 

QFT.  The trainers and racers are definitely meant for those that are familiar with forefoot or mid-foot striking.  I also would not suggest them if you over pronate.

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 was thinking about this. I'll wait until Nick does his before I proceed with mine.
Estimated delivery for my pair that I ordered last night is next Tuesday 3/4. I work crazy hours but hopefully I have either Saturday or Sunday off so I can work on them. I'll post pics in here when I have em done.

Thanks for the info. Just read some info on that GAC 900. Seems like it could help the Flyknit material take the Angelus acrylic paint a little better.

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


TIA.
Black Sharpies kinda dry purple so I don't think that'd work too well.

I'm gonna try and stuff the hell out of the shoe so it makes all the holes in the tongue easier to reach with the brush. Also gonna try and look for some sort of finisher to try and hold the color so it lasts longer. Unless they turn into my go-to pair of runners I'm not gonna wear them too often so I'm hoping the paint will hold up for a while.

I've been rocking Nike DriFit no shows but they're pretty thick and they poke out a little bit so they're not exactly no-shows. I've seen a few people recommend these Drymax thin no-shows but they're pretty expensive. I've been looking for some cheap, thin no-shows but I don't think they exist laugh.gif. I'm probably just gonna grab like 4-6 pairs of the Drymaxes. It's not like I wear Flyknits every day so I think that should be enough ohwell.gif.

Forgot you posted those. I'm a size 10 too so they should definitely work. I have a Marshall's a few blocks from my house so I'll check and see if they have them there. If not I'll cop online since it's buy one get one half off. Thanks for the info pimp.gifpimp.gif.

Besides the silhouette. The Racers have a lighter upper (more pores) and forefoot zoom cushioning only.  The Trainers have heel and forefoot zoom cushioning and a higher heel-toe drop.
