if i didn't like the fit of the trainers (too snug) than i wouldn't like the fit of the racers right? because they are even tighter?
I think the racers look and feel much better than the trainers, so much so that I will only be buying racers going forward. They fit like a glove, but that's exactly what I want. The upper uses less material and it isn't as stiff as the trainers. In fact, I find it to be really stretchy and flexible, especially after you break them in. I do have a normal foot though and went half size down on all flyknits. People with wide feet may have trouble.
I'm assuming you originally purchased the trainers from Nike. If so, you may have been a little quick to return them given they have a 30 day no questions asked return policy (although, I'm not sure how this works if you don't have an actual store to return to). They honestly feel much better after a few wears. But if you are able to purchase from somewhere that will let you return them after wearing them for a bit if they don't work out, I'd say try them out.
