Does anyone else have the same variation on their pairs?

Pics of my pair:










I believe only the first run of Flyknit Trainers have the thin padding. I have a pair from the initial release and there is minimal padding in the ankle area. The version that you have, I have seen at my local Finishline. I dont know if all of the new pairs have that padded collar or not.

To those with the flyknit trainers, are the heels harsh on your feet? I just walked in mine, and I got blisters. Do the heels break in/or get soft over time?

I have the 1st versions, and no break in was required. It'll probaby break it over time though.

I haven't grabbed a pair yet........everyone that bought them says, "its like wearing a glove on your feet; i could sleep with them on" 

post #4598 of 84862

I half sized down and mine were pretty tight on the first wear. Second wear, they were pretty much broken in with the second wear as far as the upper goes.

 

And yes, these shoes are super comfortable. Some people prefer the Flyknit 1+ with lunar, but I've always been a zoom guy. Very cushy. Lunar to me doesn't have any "give" if that makes sense. Zoom is much more responsive

How do the Racers run size wise if I wear an 11? Appreciate any info.

Fellas I'm looking to cop my first pair of Flyknits. However, none of the shops in my area carry them so I'm unable to take a look at them in person. Therefore, I was hoping you all could give me your opinion on which of the following tends to look better in person between the black/grey and the red racers...thanks

Don't know about you all with Road Runner VIP accounts but I plan on keeping mine after the initial year is up. The $25 renewal would be well worth it. Especially considering all the money I've saved building my Flyknit collection through them. The Flyknit release schedule is looking very promising down the road and here's to hoping RRS gets at least more than half of them. happy.gif

to help you out a bit, the black/WHITE are trainers and the red/black are racers, so you are looking at 2 different shoes with different aesthetics.

personally i think trainers are better looking and better for casual wear.

ok so it sounds like the newer batches come with the thick heel padding. probably a way to differentiate them from the original release of the trainers. much like how they replaced "nike air" with jumpman for the jordans.

thanks NT fam for this info!

Any black/white Flyknit Trainers left anywhere in a size 10? The only place I've found is RRS.

Hmm. Interesting. I may pass on them for now anyways as I just found Volt trainers. Hoping they live up to the photos. Need to settle on one pair of Racers to grab. Grey joints disappeared.

Is this the only colorway with the updated heel?
post #4610 of 84862

I've put off buying a pair of flyknit racers for a long time. I kept saying once my running shoes reach beat dead. Well the time has come.

 

 

Is there a release expected to drop soon on the racers? I know they usually sell out pretty quick, just trying to prepare and get info for when a new release is coming.

There is extra padding on that grey pair of racers compared to the volt/orange/red pairs? I know it's hard to see because everything is black, but I'm not really seeing it.

 

Can anyone else with the grey racers confirm? GRANDIN? I honestly can't imagine racers having the extra padding as they are perfect as is.

I know this was already covered pages back but i can't find it. I want to clean my white and black trainers with a cleaning solution. Someone was talking about a cleaning agent that was worth over 20 dollars. Anyone have a clue as to what i can use

Jason Markk, you won't regret it.

For those still asking about sizing, simply put:

 

TTS in the Racers. If you go a half size down, they're uncomfortable.

Half-size down in the Trainers. If you get your true size, they fit horribly.

 

Take it from someone who hates seeing different sizes in his closet lol. Trust me you want to have the right fit in the Flyknits..

Pretty much on point. Lemme expand on that a little. If you get the earlier, non padded Trainers, go .5 size down. If you get the newer, padded Trainers, go TTS.

 

I also went half size down in the Racers and have no problem. They fit like a glove but have a little wiggle room in the toes.
