One more pic!  Have always loved special makeups for the Olympics.  These will go down as two of my all-time favorites.

I love how dudes are going crazy in the Lebron and KD thread, yet we're taking a look at some of the rarest shoes in the world at the moment. What are there, 4 pairs world wide plus maybe a couple of extras?

Good lookin out Grizzly

Ordered a black pair off of Portland Running....Anyone know of any places in PA that have them somewhere around Philly maybe? Looking for the blue joints.

i can't get enough of these trainers.

when comparing the length from the trainers to the racers, the trainers are noticeably longer. IMO trainers run a 1/2 size large and racers are TTS.

i got a pair of volt racers a half size down and i'm regretting it... still looking to find one in my size.
post #1897 of 84822
Didn't realize how good the volt trainers look with khaki pants. From now on when I go to fancy places flyknits> sperrys LOL

Anyway, I might wait for different colorways or different type of a sole.  I really like the idea of flyknit, but I'm not quite sure it's for me yet...we'll see...

BTW:  THe Chicago Fleet Feet on Wells got a new batch of Trainers in (the Volt and the Orange) and I think they have some Racers left too...

The thing with the flyknits is that they are very stiff the first few wears. The more you wear them, the more comfortable they become as they form to your feet. I wore in my Volt Trainers wearing them almost 2 weeks straight during the olympics. I forgot how stiff they started until I broke out my black/white trainers and they hurt my feet the first day until they were broken in. I went a half size down in both the trainers and racers. I am happy with my sizing choice for the trainers, but I have yet to wear the racers for a whole day yet.

I'm curious how the steaming process would impact that. Obviously it's something Nike had in mind for them though it wasn't widely offered.
post #1901 of 84822

Was wondering if since the Racers is narrower than the Trainers, anyone tried sizing up on these? looking at grabbing a pair half size bigger than my current size 9 on the Trainers.

very dope! 3 down for me....4 to go! and that's funny because i think the opposite for the trainers and racers lol...for ME trainers are TTS and racers are 1/2 small.

 

sizing is so subjective....it's funny when there are multiple posts about it in EVERY shoe thread!

post #1903 of 84822
Totally loving the Flyknit Racers. Shout out to my boy Bolt55 on the Orange Racers. Should be coming my way today. Also ordered a pair of the Black/Sequoia Trainers on Swoosh. Racers so far are TTS for me. Went a half size down on the Trainers and will see what the deal is when that gets in.

Good afternoon NT,

 

I called Fleet Feet in Sacramento and they had the limited volts available. I placed an order for a size 9.5. Free Shipping.

 

Nike Flyknit

Style - Color # 532984-700
Volt/Black



2311 J Street
Sacramento, CA 95816
Tel: 916.442.3338

 

Hope this helps a few of you.

post #1905 of 84822

I thought the Freerun+2's were light, the Flyknit trainers are like air!

 

And from the various stores I've talked to, Nike is not sending any restocks of these initial 10 colors.

So if you like any of these colors you need to get them while you can, because it seems like once these are gone that's it.

Correct me if im wrong, but I no longer see Nike Flyknit Racer or Trainer on NDC anymore. I am REALLY LUCKY I got a black/white trainer pair when it showed up on NDC last week. 

 

But so much for trying to get these out to the mainstream. Not many people got these. They aren't produced like the Lunarglide 4s and Nike Frees. I wore my Nike Flyknit racer (volt) to a store the other day and I got a lot of lookers. I wonder if these are "beta testing" the public for feedback. lol.

post #1911 of 84822

I also tried searching for the flyknits on NDC and it seems like they are not selling any right now.

 

The feedback I  received is that they are limited. A few stores did mention they will receive them in January 2013 but will not receive the first run of colorways.

 

I have two pairs on the way. I'll post pics once I receive them.

 

Stuntman Mike, your pic is sick

Just called FLeet Feet in Buffalo, and they said they do not have any of the Racers in stock right now, but will be getting a shipment in the next couple of weeks. She did not know what colors would be available.

REMINDER:

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO BUYING-SELLING-TRADING ALLOWED IN THIS FORUM.

 

 

DO NOT POST THAT YOU'RE WILLING TO BUY, SELL OR TRADE. PERIOD!

PRICE HAS NEVER BEEN THE ISSUE. IT'S STILL A VIOLATION IF YOU'RE SELLING FOR RETAIL OR LESS...OR EVEN TO SHIP. THIS INCLUDES REQUESTS/OFFERS TO SPLIT COMBO PACKS.

 

DO NOT POST THAT YOU'RE WILLING TO DO PICKUPS FROM A STORE OR THAT YOU NEED SOMEONE TO PICK SOMETHING UP.

EVEN IF YOU'RE SELLING FOR THE PRICE OF WHAT YOU PAID FOR, IT'S STILL A VIOLATION SINCE A TRANSACTION WOULD NEED TO TAKE PLACE BETWEEN YOU AND SOMEONE ELSE.

 

DO NOT ASK OR OFFER SOMEONE TO USE A SWOOSH/EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT.

YOU WOULD STILL NEED TO PAY/ACCEPT PAYMENT FROM SOMEONE IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THE TRANSACTION.

 

DO NOT POST LIVE AUCTION LINKS/LISTINGS.

TOO MANY PEOPLE PROMOTING THEIR OWN AUCTIONS IS THE MAIN REASON WHY WE FROWN ON THIS BUT YOU ALSO DON'T WANT TO BLOW UP SOMEONE'S CHANCES AT AN AUCTION THEY WERE WATCHING.

 

DO NOT POST STOCKPILE/STOCKROOM PHOTOS.

(PICTURES OF MULTIPLE PAIRS/SIZES)THIS OBVIOUS ATTEMPT TO SELL WILL NO LONGER BE TOLERATED, ESPECIALLY IF IT'S COUPLED WITH A  "FOR SALE" SIGNATURE! POSTS WITH THESE TYPES OF PHOTOS WILL BE DELETED WITHOUT WARNING.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

IF YOU FEEL THE NEED TO HELP SOMEONE OUT, PLEASE KEEP IT THRU PM'S OR USE THE BUY/SELL FORUMS. ANY MENTION OF ANY TYPE OF EXCHANGE ON THE BOARD MAY LEAD TO A SUSPENSION.

 

POSTING LINKS/INFO TO ONLINE STORES IS OKAY AS LONG AS YOU'RE NOT PROMOTING YOUR OWN WEBSITE.

 

POSTING ONLINE DISCOUNT CODES IS OKAY.

 

POSTING THE ADDRESS OR PHONE NUMBERS TO STORES IS OKAY.

 

USING YOUR SIGNATURE TO BUY/SELL/TRADE IS OKAY AS LONG AS YOU'RE NOT "SIG CHECKING" AND POSTING WITH THE INTENT TO PROMOTE YOUR SIG.

 

REMEMBER, IT'S OKAY TO HELP EACH OTHER OUT AS LONG AS YOU'RE DOING IT IN THE APPROPRIATE WAY.

So when you order from Fleet Feet, do they send it to your home? Or do they just send it to your closest store?

When I ordered mine yesterday, they gave me the option of having them delivered to the billing address or to another address requested.
