No they're not.  Original laces were round. Look at the first page of the thread.

I got these super thin drymax they are super comfortable and really wicks away moisture. But they are a bit expensive and they do peek out so not truly no show socks.



I bought some in bulk on ebay from china with some silicone backing so it won't slip, it's coming in the mail should be here by march. These ones look really low and should be truly no show, I'll let you know how those work out I bought those in bulk like 12 pairs just to mess around with.

Ah I see what you meant.  Yes, the original laces on those racers were ribbon.  What @IRyBreadI and I were saying is that the original laces on the first wave of trainers and racers had round laces that we prefer over the current ribbon laces.  As in, the laces used in the HTMs and the first drops.

I have run in both the Racers and Trainers so I'm hoping my opinion can be of some help to you. Below are the more differences that I feel really set the two apart.

 

Racers:

More narrow in the heel and midfoot

Zoom unit in the forefoot ideal for midfoot and forefoot strikers

Save these for race day

Although not noticeably lighter, it is lighter than the Trainer

 

Trainers

Zoom unit in the forefoot and heel- more functional for everyday training and casual wear

A bit wider in the heel and midfoot

Dynamic flywire through the upper was more supportive/ maybe due to what seems like more dense knitting on the upper- particularly in the midfoot area

 

It should be noted that both the Racer and Trainer are made for those with a normal/moderate arch. Pronators and supinators beware, both shoes don't have built in support like many gait specific runners. Best for neutral runners. Also, both have very thin tread on the outsole.


Hope this helps.

Comfort wise I'd say lunars. Looks wise, trainers. It all depends on your preference.

what he said. haven't tried out lunars 2, but lunars 1 is one of the most comfortable shoe i ever worn along with flyknit chukka. trainer is still comfortable but sole is firmer. lunar has crazy amount of cushion, like walking on pillows. since i wear it casually with jeans/khakis, lunar doesn't look right for me. i own all 3 type and have about 20+ pairs between them so i'm speaking from experience comfort wise.

I was on the same boat as you not too long ago. I used to think Lunarglide5's were the most comfortable shoes until I started wearing the Lunar1's more and more. Then came across Racers and Trainers. I really enjoy the Racers coz they are so lightweight and looks are great. The trainers are okay lookwise but they don't do too much for me comfortwise. I do enjoy the mc colorway that's why it's the only one I have right now. I have 2 Racers and 13 Lunar1's.

So the best thing to do is pick up one of each and try them all side by side and see which one you like best. It'll be different for each person. You can always return whatever you don't like. Good luck. smile.gif

Flyknit Lunar definitely the way to go in terms of an everyday trainer. Unbelievable comfort. The multicolor and the newer "heather" cw's are sick.

If you're looking for running shoes go lunars. It's not even close.
If you're just looking for a trainer or casual wear, trainers are fine. I've used my trainers and racers for running and they perform well, but the lunars are way more comfortable, especially for long runs.

Someone please help me find a pair of white trainer.... I've been looking for so long.. I can't take it anymore....

I suggest you go with the trainers. I have 5 pairs of flyknits so far, 2 pairs of trainers.

The lunars are nice dont get me wrong, but the trainer is just so perfect for humans.

By the way for all of you looking for mc trainers we just got TONS of them here in toronto for the first time. Call in to the vaughn nike factory to see if you can get some phone orders in. Theyre 130$ right now i believe, got my pair in store two days ago
