Ok I called Gazelle Sports and had a long conversation with a very knowledgeable gentleman. Here is what he said and/or knew from Nike telling him:

"Gazelle Sports will be getting two color-ways, the volt/black/white and the orange/black/white. These color-ways will come in both the Flyknit Trainer and Flyknit Racer. The volt color-way will be the most common of this release and the Orange color-way will be one of the most limited color-ways. Only 18 brick-and-mortar stores will be getting the Flyknits and they can sell them in-store only. No phone or internet orders. Some stores/retailers will get color-ways that are limited to just that retailer, ie the orange/black colorway might be only available through Gazelle Sports."

Then we talked about Nike and its production. I have heard that they were having trouble developing the manufacturing machines for the flyknits and that would make sense of Nike slow-playing this release potentially missing out on a huge opportunity with the Olympics. The gentelman said "Right now there are only 2 flyknit manufacturing machines in the world. Nike is the owner of one already and will be receiving another in the fall/winter"

Also new color-ways for 2013 were mentioned. He had pictures in the computer which I tried, unsuccessfully, to get him to send to me. He told me the color-ways that today was the last day for him to order for 2013 were

Flyknit Trainer
Black/White
Teal/White
Pink/Gray
Yellow/Green

Flyknit Racer
Red/White
Black/White

Also mentioned for the 2013 color-ways was that the inverse of some of the color-ways would also be available. ie. The teal/white would also have the inverse of white/teal. They just flipped with color was more predominate in the overlay of the weave.

He also said that the Nike Lunar One with the flyknit technology would be more widely available and sold in stores such as DSG

DOPE! I'm looking forward to seeing pics and reading your review!



Though I doubt I'll be purchasing the FKs just yet, I'm just really looking forward to seeing them in person/trying them on, especially the Trainers. I think I can hold out long enough for the Lunar Ones.

You beat me to it with the Todd Jordan interview. There are a few more photos out there with him wearing the Lunar Flyknits.

Here are a few color-ways and photos that I think have yet to be posted in here.






Check out the color-way of the flyknits worn by the guy in the middle:


And lastly, Is the white with black lines color-way a Flyknit upper with a Free sole?

Facts are that different stores will get them and release them at different times. The 27th and the 29th have been thrown around as possible official release dates in that they coincide with the olympics and/or typical release days of the week for Nike. The facts are that nothing is official. You have to call around and do your homework to find these. Very limited, small, secret release.

Dope info/contribution cutthroat (as usual)!

I really hope FK will be a part of the next gen Free Run.
post #465 of 84688
Nice work on the info cutthroat!

It looks like I'll be seeing the Flyknits on my feet in 2013. laugh.gif

Good luck on getting your pairs guys! I can't wait to see some more detailed pics.

I found more info that Elvis is still alive that actual release info on these things!!!

post #475 of 84688
Had to get the trainer because they didn't have the racers.

Walking around, these are the BEST shoes I've ever had.

I suggest going a .5 size down unless you have wide feet or wear orthotics.

These don't need any break in and the upper is super soft.

Don't know what held these up, the production date on mine is 4/14/12.

Style number for VOLTS are 532984 700


Posting from phone, so no pics yet haha

Fleet Feet Houston was awesome. They got the volt trainers this week and have plenty of stock. I have the white/black/volt HTM, so I didn't really want another volt color way. They ordered me black/white and white/black trainers (both on Page 11 of this thread) from their catalog and claimed they'll be here next week. I don't imagine that could be possible but fingers crossed!

Holler if anyone has questions or needs help with volts.
post #477 of 84688
^^^ Im so jealous of the both of you!!!!
post #478 of 84688
I am so confused. So the HTM drop is going to be at Fleet Feet? Or most likely Mercer again? Which colorway is the HTM drop? Any info would be much appreciated.
post #479 of 84688
What's the retail price on them, anhuynh16/agrizzly21?
post #480 of 84688
Did you guys see the catalog and the colorways planned for the next few months? And as Ray said, Price?
