Woah when did they restock these? Any word on the burgundy colorway coming back? Would much rather have those but don't wanna pass on these and just never see them again

^^too much green!? I'd love a pair with that mix. I passed on MC when I had the chance to cop awhile back at NikeSF because the couple pairs they brought out for me had toe boxes dipped in pink haha

I think depending on how the tongue holds up is what's gonna determine whether I'm gonna do the Swooshes or not. You'll probably get yours done before mine though so post some pics when you do. The tongue blacked out really sets these off but with black Swooshes too I think they'd be on a whole different level pimp.gif.

Anyone with some Photoshop skills wanna PS a black Swoosh onto one of my pics to give us an idea of how they'll look? nerd.gif

Good job on these man. They actually look like real volts now.

I think I would love more blue. But this is definitely better than having a lot of pink in it.

If I could find MC racers for $200 or less, no matter the color, I would do backflips... One of my favorite pair of shoes made.

if i experience heel slippage in the lunars, will it be the same for the racers and trainers?
post #18525 of 84786

Well for racers the flywire near the top keeps the heel in place but you need to make sure the laces are tight.

I've been wearing racers and trainers (original unpadded version) for over half a year now and I have no problem with 'heel slippage' as you call it. Recently I've tried padded trainers and a pair of lunar and I've found padded trainers to have a slight slippage problem and lunars to have a huge slippage problem (the heel area on lunars seem to be shorter in height compared to trainers which could explain for the slippage). I would go so far to say that racers should be a 100% secure fit provided you are wearing your appropriate size. Of course this is my subjective experience with the shoes and it might not hold true to others.

post #18527 of 84786

The padded trainers have slipping for sure, but it's cured with a type of lacing. http://katierunsthis.com/2011/10/04/running-shoe-lacing-techniques/ I use this for hoop shoes also.

The black Swoosh is pimp.gifpimp.gifpimp.gif thanks for that PS. If the paint on the tongue holds up well on my pair, I'm definitely gonna do my Swooshes as well.

And for those who think the Electric Greens with black tongue/Swoosh look too much like the Volt Trainers, think again. The colors may look similar in pics, but in person the electric green is WAY brighter than volt. They're really a completely different color. Plus the Volts have the blacked out medial side/white swoosh.

Yeah the E. Greens are def more vibrant in person.

With all of this MC racer talk, I consider myself lucky that I landed my pair at the RRS price. Probably should have doubled.

At least you guys have 1 pair laugh.gif. I was late to the party on the Racers. Actually copped a pair for my boy during the restock last summer but they were sold out by the time I realized I liked them ohwell.gif. I'm sure they restocked on other sites plenty of times after that but I didn't pay attention at all once NDC was out.
