My Racers came in today pimp.gif

First thing I noticed is how low profile and super light they are. They are narrow, and being so low to the ground they look mad small, I probably could have went a half size up, but oh well. Once I put them on though, the comfort was def there pimp.gif

So the Trainers were the only pair that got the "upgrade" with the padded heel collar and ribbon laces? nerd.gif

I wanted to share this pair I been working on with the FK fans in here. One of my favorite shoes from Nike in a long time. I ended up with
2 pairs of the black and whites which is why I decided to paint a pair.

interesting... not my style though. I applaud you though, because I'm sure customizing FKs is a pain in the ...



and I'm really salty right now.. Lost a last second bid on a pair of HTM flyknits two weeks in a row. It was an amazing price.

I got my pair from running warehouse.

So, what is the real deal on the newer version? Did I just get lucky or what? Thanks

Pretty sure you just got an old batch that they haven't moved yet. I'm assuming that all the new ones are the same product code going forward.

I ordered one before the "new" ones were everywhere and I got the OG ones, so I'm sure there are plenty sitting around.

EDIT: I saw someone put their solarsoft Roshe Insoles in their flyknits on instagram...that sounds comfy as hell.

thats what i love about the racers, said it last year. and i feel like the lunar 1s, with the padding and "thicker" knit are moving to far away from the original intentions of the flyknit tech which is why i have passed on them so far. i REALLY wish they would put out the lunar racers because then they could just have my money. my opinion..

Agree with you i said this in the lunar 1 thread. My trainers to me are a second skin. I love the way they fit and form to my foot. I don't know if its a sizing thing because i own trainers in a 10.5 and got lunars in an 11. But it just isn't the same feeling for me.

The flyknit in my trianers when laced up conforms to my foot so well and stretched a lot from first wear to hug my entire foot. Probably going to try to scoop up more before they are extinct.

^Wow, crazy pickup.





I have a sizing question.

So I tried on a pair of the first run (no collar padding) of flyknits in a 12 (my true size) at Nike Dallas over Christmas break. They fit quite loose.
I ordered an 11.5 in the white/black flyknit trainers from run.com, assuming they would run big and they fit too small with the collar padding.
Went on to return them, the package should actually be there today and it will take around 3 days to get the refund I was told. I was planning to just order a size 12 when I got my refund, but I just checked and saw that the 12's are sold out. Will I be okay if I just order 12.5? I am going to only wear them casually.

Thanks in advance.

^ I'd rather go smaller than go bigger and deal with heal slippage.
post #3852 of 84862
I just got a pair from finishline. I usually wear a 9 in most AM90s etc until recently when I think they started running bigger. I'm going to return for an 8.5. The material "pinches" at the front and I think it's because it's a tad too big, but it's crazy how light they are. Now I can unload now that I know what size I need.

Wow crazy Goodwill pickup!!!

Is there any coupons for Sole Sports? I'm trying to scoop up an 8.5 in Green, Black, and White......not having much luck. FNL won't let me use same code I used for the pair I have here to return so I will deal with that tomorrow when I return them and see if they can work out an exchange. Sole has Green in 8.5 so i might as well get them.

well i went into my local fleet feet to try on a pair of trainers to see what size i needed
i noticed they didn't have the racers so i asked if he could check other stores to see if they had my size

when he returned, he told me that he did have the racers but they were in a box being sent back to nike so he opened the box and i was able to get a pair
i asked why they were being sent back and he told me that the flyknit one was taking its place..it had nothing to do with sales

i don't know what that means but you might want wanna grab a pair soon in the OG colorways before they are a gone and you have to deal with these crazy hypebeast trying to make you pay 300 bucks for some thread
post #3860 of 84862
I regret jumping the gun getting the VOLT flyknit racers off FNL a few weeks back.
The racers SUCK. Maybe my feet are too wide, but the fit is bad. It sucks the volt trainers are impossible to find at retail now.

There might also be a possibility that the OG colorways and models could find there way into some outlets. Not saying that's the case but it's very well possible. happy.gif

The lunar ones are simply a new branch of the flyknit. similar to how they have the OG AM90s and the Engineered Mesh versions. The trainers and racers are the flagship shoe of the Flyknit series.

Agreed! I had the Racers, and I placed them up for sale immediately, as I absolutely HATED how they felt. I was planning to run in them too, but I just couldn't do it.

I've been following Nike Running since 08, and the ZFKs are clearly the most disappointing, imho. Don't get me wrong, the construction process and aesthetics are AMAZING. However, I just can't deal with such a drop-off in comfort.

I have normal width feet and a pretty high arch, if that matters.
post #3864 of 84862
Quick question about the White/Black color way... I've found pairs that have a visible white sock liner and some that have a black sock liner. Assuming both are legit, which one was the original release?
post #3865 of 84862
The one without the padded collar, the White one, is from the original wave.
post #3866 of 84862
Thank you ^

I'll take the Volts Racers if they're in size 10.
