Just ordered a pair of black/white trainers in a size 11 from Luke's Locker in Colleyville. They charged me sales tax even though I don't live in TX. Came out to 172 and change.

Thats strange that they charged you tax. I order my first pair from Fleet Feet Houston and they did not charge me tax, only shipping to CA. The total with shipping ended up being less than I would of paid for the shoes plus CA taxes.

Here is a link to a very nice read on someone who attended a Flyknit Collective event:

http://hypebeast.com/2012/08/the-review-nike-flyknit-racers/

Some interesting facts in the article:
-80% of the shoe is made from recyclables
-The shoe only goes through 7 different hands versus the traditionally 220
-The upper takes only 40 minutes to create

I bought a can of scotch guard but am nervous to use it. If these are truly knit by a machine that used to knit socks and sweaters I would have to think its safe but I dont want ruin a pair testing it out... There has to be a way.

 i sprayed my volt trainers w/ water and stain repellant and no issues whatsoever.

so when the pic of the IOA's was posted there was something about the look of them that i really liked that couldnt quite put my finger on. after a minute i realized it was that the IOA pair had much "fatter" laces than the htm trainers came with. so i thought i would switch the laces out on my pair of htm's and try it out. thoughts?

im not sure if i like it as much as i did on the IOA's i think with the lighter upper and the white soles is what made those look so good. with these i think it might be to dark. i dont know, ill have to see how i feel after i wear them...

^those are beautiful, i prefer the "skinnier" laces.

I think it is just the lighting mixed with the gloss of the photo. I actually think it is the same first release HTM's that you have as your main photo.
post #1846 of 84825
those HTMs about 3 posts above, can they still be bought anywhere?
Buy for the love, not the hype.

Always on the hunt for Yeezys in a size 9, 9.5 or 10 any color any model. Money ALWAYS in hand.

eBay is your only chance. There are 3 or 4 pairs last I looked.
post #1848 of 84825
not a fan of the lace switch. like them as is. would be interesting to try others though. like skinny rope laces, or regular flat laces.

Thanks! Now I can wear my white/black pair without worrying too much. Those things were going to be dirt magnets!

the insoles are a nice touch, and the stars on the heel tabs are cutesy lol. would be nice to have something the olympians had as a collector, but if i was already rocking the GR volts, i wouldn't sweat over these at all. the IOC edition however are a different story.

Crossing my fingers NDC gets a 12, 12.5, or 13 by Friday. I'm itching for a pair. ****! I know they have 12.5 in red/orange but I don't have the money right now. :(

I didnt know these even released. will NDC get a restock anytime soon? I need a pair.
post #1855 of 84825

I've got three pairs of Nike Flyknit Racer/trainers and I finally got Black/White pair in the exact size i wanted, half size down. Now, this is the pair that will get everyday, all day, use for everything. I got lucky it showed up on NDC. I just hope it's not a glitch. 

 

Now, I've noticed that sizes appear here and there on several different colors on NDC. Is this how they restock? Or are these ones where people have returned them?

post #1856 of 84825
^ most likely they are pairs that are being returned..
post #1857 of 84825

****! Yeah, hopefully someone goes about returning some tomorrow. If not, I guess I'll just wait until the next release. I wish there were places in Milwaukee that stocked them.

Have you tried using Nike's customer service? Depending on what color and size you want, they may be able locate them. If you tell the store you used NikeFind, you usually don't pay shipping.

I'd been told that Finish Line was getting them by a couple of their customer service reps about a month ago and that they would be released online "in the near future, just keep checking back". 3-4 weeks later and nothing.
post #1859 of 84825

I did two weeks ago and then my vacation hours for four work days didn't go through on my check so I couldn't afford to pay bills and cop. So I think I'll go on a spree of calling around the country to different NikeTowns and hope I come up on something. If I could find blue/green trainers or volt racers I'll be happy. lol. but I'll settle for any color other than black tbh.
