Thanks for posting. Weird how the card says it's the trainer when it's clearly the racer. Wonder if the red pair is the same from the photo daazn posted a few pages back

To me these and the volts posted look like a cross between the trainers and racers.  The upper looks like the lunars and the midsole looks more like the racers.

It is the Trainer. You can tell from the Flyknit patterning around the toe box and the triangular shaped regions of the Dynamic Flywire.

Don`t forget that the Trainers released so far were HTM collaborations and used the old Lunaracer midsoles. The GR Trainer will have a midsole that is very similar to the Flyknit Racer but it is slightly thicker. There is a smooth band of phylon around the centre of the heel piece on the Trainer that is not on the Racer.

damn it, i like that blue pair!
post #305 of 84697
i see what you guys are saying. weird. i actually liked them with the lunar sole. it was more of a casual shoe. with the racer sole it looks designed for performance. dammit makes me want the white volt HTM trainer even more now.

I was also wondering why there were no pairs on eBay.  Maybe anhuynh16 is right that they havent sold out.  The high price is might stop the average consumer from making an impulse buy where as all the nike talkers are fiends and dont mind dropping that much.

just learned something!

apparently its a long process to get these.

Most of it is Nike Marketing. You actually try it on and everything, its called the flyknit "experience" or something.

s/o to rich!


A little more info..  For those who don't want to read- summary

Basically the Flyknits should be releasing Late- July , but in small numbers (not necessarily limited just small amt). With those small numbers, Nike can test out the demand for Flyknit based shoes and continue to build on it. The goal is to establish a new line similar to Nike Lunar, Nike Free etc..

Here are some other photo's I found from Ekin being at the stadium the week before.  They were demo-ing and previewing the new items, LG4, Flyknits and the new track spikes.

Can anybody explain to me what Ekin is?  I know it is "Nike" backwards.  Is it a an outreach department for Nike?

Starting bid at $999.00
smiley: grin %@@.

I can finally tell the difference between the FK Trainer and Racer (thanks to BunInJapan) smiley: embarassedsmiley: laugh. Of these two, I like the Trainers more. However, I still prefer the Lunar set-ups (either the LR or LT soles). The Black sole doesn't look good on these, imho.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't an EKIN someone who is very very knowledgeable of the technology/spec and back story of Nike and/or their specific division. Like a savant of Nike, knowing the ins and outs, backwards and forwards hence EKIN.

i haven't been scanning the release info at all so i don't know. just so happened i was talking about it and my friend showed me the pics/prices/release dates for the mids and those are dropping in feb. i think i might grab 2 pairs of the mids and rock those everyday for work.

So it seems safe to assume that the two colors available @ the Tracktown experience are the blue from a few pages back and the red that Ray posted on the previous page?
KYRIE 2 EFFECTS SIZE 12 DS for 190 shipped. AIR JORDAN 11 Concords size 11.5 DS 390 shipped. AIR Jordan 4 TORO REDS size 11.5 DS 390 shipped. DS KD4 size 11.5, DS Kobe V size 11.5, and Lots of...

I believe so.  On Ebay there are 2 pairs of red/black/white soles and one pair of blue/black/white soles. The red and blue would make sense with the olympics.  I thought the green ones were being released but It looks like those are just for the olympic athletes.

I still can not tell the different between the non-lunar trainer and the racer.   Are the new trainers just a little thicker in the sole?  Could someone do a side-by-side photo comparison?

The new trainer has the same upper as the previous (lunar soled) trainer, on top of a sole unit similar to the racer. I think the sole unit may be marginally thicker than the racer sole, but also has a slight indentation at the very back of the sole that the racer doesn't have.

And I still think the volt/black trainer (or racer) will be the first available to the general public at the start of July.

One of the first distinguishable areas is located on lateral side in the midfoot. On the Racer, the area has a triangular shape (with stripes), while the Trainer doesn't.

Another thing is that the Trainer looks to have cables bulging out along its upper. 

One more thing is the Swoosh placement; the Racers' Swoosh is a bit larger and looks to extend up to the third lace hole, while the Trainers have a smaller Swoosh that extends up to the last lace hole.
