How do I size for flyknit racers? I wear a 9.5 in the flyknit lunars and I have both a 9 and a 9.5 in the flyknit trainers? The 9 in the flyknit trainers fit me good, I feel like the 9.5 is a little too big but I wear a 9.5 in everything else (i.e. Kobe 8, KD V, Air Jordan 1).

Thank you for your help and I apologize for the inconvenience of not posting in a racer thread.

I wear a 9.5 in the other shoes you mentioned and went with a 9.5 in the racers. Fits perfect, IMO. I'd suggest staying TTS.

I have actual orthotics from my podiatrist that I use in my trainers and they fit just fine, same with my chukkas and roshes

If you go to the first page. Blue glows were part of batch 1. 

Yes, these are not blue glows. Different color, different code.

I always wondered about those & why they'd be pictured but not sell anywhere...the plot thickens lol

This is the exact pic that has had me pursuing the purple pair. 3-4 months of production is a long time, and if you look at page 1 someone has these scheduled to come out with the current group of colors (look at the style code, it says unknown color). I've got to believe a shoe they've had sitting in warehouses since January would be releasing asap

I noticed my insoles have fit fine as well - I was more concerned with the potential wear that aftermarket insoles or orthotics would cause on the flyknit's upper.  do you notice any premature ripping or warping of the knit upper around your orthotic?

Fortunately I haven't, but I honestly haven't worn them enough for that to happen anyway. I did notice the orthotics pushing out some of the upper so I actually trimmed them a little bit to help. I'm hoping it doesn't tear or anything, doesn't seem like it will.

Thanks for the feedback!

 

One more thing (sorry I guess the excitement of finally getting a pair is getting to me): is outside part of the toebox supposed to crease as you walk in them?  it's disheartening to see them get misshapen like that and i'm wondering if i should've sized down one.  i have a pinky's width of space up front.  thoughts?

no htm in your size?

certain boutiques got waves 1 & 2 early. I got the pink and neo turq around mlk day in jan when they didn't release globally until the second week (ish) of feb. again there were early trickles of wave 2 showing up in niketowns and other boutiques before the official w2 3/31 drop. basically, just come back to this thread mid-June

Do the HTM Flyknit Lunars (i.e., not the HTM racers) fit TTS?

 

I'm a 10 in the FK Trainer (barefoot) and a 10.5 in the FK1/LG4, etc. 

 

If im spending some coin on some HTMs I need to be sure.

honestly don't know of anybody in this thread who has a pair. I'd assume so. but you can search the hashtag #flyknit on Instagram and reach out to users who do have the shoe.

i dont know why they are so hard to come by, even harder than volt/blk trainers, but when i saw a pair on ebay i just hit the seller up and snagged them with the quickness

if you got them then kudos. they weren't a gr and were produced in similarly limited numbers as the Olympic volts were.

that's the thing with sneakers. an item is worth what someone is willing to pay. and a lot of it has to do with accessibility. it's the same as you seeing a pair on a store shelf and swooping on it simply cuz they're dope. whereas many people aren't as lucky and then end up breaking their piggy banks for something they really want.

fortunately i didnt pay too much and the seller backed down on his price cause i guaranteed instant payment rather than dealing with deadbeat bidders
post #5187 of 84698

i think blue glow trainers are harder to find than the volt trainers. i spoke with a Nike Rep and they told me that blues are an inactive color and that the volts are still active... meaning we might see a restock of them. maybe...

I'm not sure if I read it here or on an Instagram post but I think the blue glows were exclusive to employees as part of the "first to fly" campaign. this is what happens when you search through hashtag flyknit on IG
