Give me those exact same colorways in a Trainer...and i'll buy the Trainer 10/10 times over the Racer.

It was an exaggeration to call the Racers "ugly." But like I said IMO the Trainers are structured/shaped for a nicer aesthetic casual/street wear.

Example: Volt Trainers >>> Volt Racers...again IMO

racers are not ugly, it just doesn't look right for casual wear with jeans or even khakis. same goes for lunar ones, look nice but something is off for casual wear. i actually think the best flyknit for casual wear is the flyknit chukka. the trainer is a really close second, especially with so many different colorways.

called the one in costa mesa asking about the white trainers after @sunsetcity posted about it.  i recall a few saying that they sold out but the lady i spoke with found a pair somehow.  i put that on hold with a quickness, then called back a few minutes later to see if all that really just happened laugh.gif next person who picked up was some guy, and i asked him about the same pair i put on hold, and he said they were gone mean.gif mad.gif eyes.gif.  called back the next day, the hold was still good and picked them up later on.  turned out to be the blacks but aint even mad smokin.gif 

 

best bet is to call your local rrs or the customer service number.  i know for fact that costa mesa is all out of the blacks though.

Can someone point me to where I can get the Flyknit Trainers in Electric Green / Black size 8.5?
post #4957 of 84713
What's the best way to spot clean the upper part of the shoe? I know they're going to get dirty as I run but there's a dirt spot that just stands out like a sore thumb on the back of my left shoe.

^^^ Jason markk. Works like wonders.
post #4959 of 84713
^Thanks! I took a look at the product and it looks good. Would the bristles would possibly damage the knit part of the shoe? That's where the stain is...

So tempted to UN-DS my USA volts trainers... Somebody help me locate some regular volt trainers in a sz 10!

I beg to differ. I wear my flyknits with jeans. I think it just depends on how you see em. I wear my orange racers with somewhat skinny jeans and they look fine imo

If they produced the same total orange/dark grey colorway in a Trainer and you owned both...you'd still rather wear the Racer for casual wear?

I bought both volt racers and trainers at the intial launch, returned the trainers and sold the racers.

Regretted selling the racers so I bought them back and have put them in my daily rotation without looking back.

Racers over trainers for me all day.

have you actually used it on flyknit before? like the other person said, bristles looks like it can damage the knit.

Good to know that we all have different taste. Would love to take a poll on Volt Trainers vs. Volt Racers. Since that colorway is the only one made in both shoes (with the dark inner).

Just curious.

ive used shout stain remover on my white and black pair as a pre-cleanser.. works amazing. Im almost sure it doesnt have bleach in it, because i put it on black socks before my shoes, and the black socks stayed black.

Likewise, racers > trainers for me too. I think the racers are just a sleeker shoe.

I purchased the Jason Markk cleaning kit along with a Premium Brush at Millenium Shoes. I'll take before and after pics later on tonight.

As for the racer vs trainer question, my vote goes to the racers. Love the low to the ground feel of the shoe.

that set should have pretty much everything i need to start cleaning right?

post #4977 of 84713
^^^ that set comes with the normal "hard brush" I would also purchase the premium brush as well it works awesome on mesh and anything delicate.

And racers over trainers!

Extremely happy I found another pair of white trainers for retail at a store less than 5 minutes away from me! Here's a side by side of the pair I washed in hot water mean.gif and the new ones. I'm very happy happy.gif
