Thanks for the info dbooth.  

 

I was able to order a 10.5 from them.  I was impressed by Fleet Feet's customer service.  They said they've been getting phone orders from all over for these.

bet stuntman scooped the 8.5 from houston cause the dude told me just shipped a pair to hawaii.  all good though these should be pretty available and an 

easy cop.  the 27th is the official date and lots of places should have them apparently.  guy also said additional colors should be dropping around a month in

or so and since it's a unisex shoe the colors are all supposed to be sort of neutral i guess.

I supposedly got the last size 12 Volt Trainer from the Houston FF. Thanks for posting that info-I'm really excited about the Flyknit series of shoes.

Now I REALLY want to locate a pair of the Volt or USA Racers in a 12. If anyone has any clue about where to find a pair please let me know.

it does make sense to be darkened like that with a clear coat and i clearly saw that and understood what was being referenced, but im not 100% sure it is. that's why i mentioned other pairs also showed similar features (see the other blue HTM pair - notice the same area shows darkened colors) when they were unrelated to skating, so that's why i didn't think they were given a custom clear coat. besides, as i mentioned earlier, in the writeup, he basically gave a review on how the material would hold up in skating. it would defeat the purpose of testing the durability of the material if they were gonna spray a clear coat over it. i really like how it looks so if it was clear coated, i hope all pairs come like that lol.

that's funny if he did give in and nabbed it. we're both bigger fans of the flyknits supporting lunar soles. but he was looking to grab size 8.5s and im not aware of any other hawaii guys anticipating flyknits as much as we are.
anyone hear of a possible release date on the non-lunar sole trainer in that light blue colorway?

for anyone who was trying to get the trainers from the olympic trials, these are supposed to release on 1/1. based on these pics, they look pretty much the same with the exception of the swoosh.

Thanks for the pics Devin.

So glad I didn't give in and buy the reds off eBay a few weeks back.
post #519 of 84693
awww man. it wasn't me who snagged that 8.5. the shoe shipping to hawaii must be spoonie. i prefer the lunar outsole like higuy said. might try to snag a pair of the regular trainers but i'm not going to go after them too hard. i'm putting aside some cash for the 3rd HTM drop. if those "iguana" trainers or that other mixed colorway are in that group, i really would like a pair. hopefully the prices drop as the tech becomes more widely available. super stoked on this whole drop though. i'm interested to see if other people are as impressed as i was when i first held a pair in my hands.

Any word on the color way for this weeks HTM III?

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

Haha there were only about 3 pairs of 8.5s left.

I took one yesterday and after my sole ripped off I had to get another today LOL.

BTW: About an inch of the sole came apart from the sole. It was on this part of the midsole-

this is my new pair, but just trying to show the general area - it was the first "curve" on the midsole/sole

First Review:

Today I went on a quick 3 mile run LOL.

It was mainly to test out the FKs.

Cushioning- 9.5/10

The cushioning was superb. The zoom feels AMAZING! It may just be me though, because I've always preferred zoom over lunar. Super responsive and springy. These>Lunar Eclipse +1, Free Run 2,3 , and Lunarglide 2 and 3s

Comfort- 10/10

The FK upper is sooo soft. No break-in needed.

What surprised me the most is that the toe box doesn't crease as much as i expected.
It started to crease after the run but it wasn't bad. It is like a bending a thin carpet.

Heel Support- 6/10

I don't know if it was me (I have super thick orthotics) or just the shoe.
My heel was slipping sometimes during my run and for casual wear.

Another reason why people who will use the stock insole to go a .5 size down!

breathability- 9/10

I watched Batman yesterday and its kinda gross but when I watch movies my feet start to sweat.

My foot felt very cool throughout the whole movie.

Its 85 degrees in H-Town which isn't that hot so I can't comment on its breathability in warm weather.


Fit
People with medium and narrow feet go .5 size down.

wide: go TTS.

Good review anhuynh16!

Have you tried them on sockless yet?

I definitely have to try them on before purchasing now.

Go back to page 11, check out the colors and then read page 11-19 and then you will be caught up and be in the know. All the information is in this thread, you just have to look for it.
Late July goes until next week.

So what the difference between the Trainer and the Racer?

It looks like the Trainer has the Lunar outsole and the Racer has the Mariah looking outsole?

?
Racers and Trainers (non HTM) both have zoom midsoles.

The racer has a sleeker midsole and upper for racing.
The trainer is more for people like us who run and wear for casual wear. The midsole seems to be thicker than the racer and outrigs out more
