when you get a chance, can you post pics of the box labels? Still unclear from anhuynh16's explanation....

Really I just want to know the exact name of the black/white one.

the box just says nike flyknit trainer+.

what anhuynh16 was basically saying is that the racer and trainer are almost identical. The uppers and midsoles are slightly different, and the racer sits closer to the ground by a few mm.

Here is a side by side comparison. The uppers are slightly different and the Racer soles are sleeker and smaller. The Racers are also lighter. If you look closely on the sole of the Trainers you can see an indent the runs around the heel of the sole. That is the quickest way to tell.

NIKE FLYKNIT RACER


NIKE FLYKNIT TRAINER


NIKE FLYKNIT TRAINER HTM (lunar sole)



***** On a side note, did anyone else notice the volt tint of the soles on the Volt Flyknit Trainers?

Thanks for the photos! Great shots showing how much sun gets through the upper. That means that these will be so cool for the summer. its 103 right now where I'm at in CA. How is the feel in the Racer versus the Trainer?

has the orange racers in stock but will NOT sell them over the phone.

Well that's a lot of help.. All HTM have a number due to the fact that there are usually only 100 pairs made.

No I haven't tried sockless yet, was never a fan of wearing shoes w/ out socks.

I found this photo today from the Nike Innovation Summit in February. The photo is supposed to be a showcase of whats possible with flyknit.
This is the Nike Lunar Flyknit Ugly Sweater

Pezones, and anyone else out there with both the Racers and Trainers, is there a noticeable difference in sizing between the two? Does the Trainer run any bigger/smaller than the Racers?

post #554 of 84784
Glad there's finally some good release info. They're a little more expensive than I'd hoped for, but they look well worth it. I'm gonna get a pair
as soon as I can.

Racer feels a lot tighter/narrower in the forefoot than the trainer does in the same size.

this..

also
i wear a 10.5
when i tried on the 10's they fit *perfect* HOWEVER i have Sasquatch feet, super flat and wide, and there's no way i could wear the trainers or, racers especially, for any length of time UNLESS they stretched a considerable amount. if, however, i had a NORMAL foot, i most likely could have sized down.



for reference i was wearing my FR2's and my toes almost touch the tip of the frees.

in the 10.5 flys i had at least a quarter inch of room, in the 10's i had no room.

Im torn between the Racer and the Trainer, Leaning more towards the Racer i like thinner soles.
post #560 of 84784

You say those are releasing 1/1........ as in January 1, 2013?
Where did you find that picture at Ray? And can you order those? I see the "Add to cart" button.

Tracktalk Forums. Apparently, it's what the stores see when they order shoes for their inventory.

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.

Interesting. I wore Zoom when I started running (Victory+). I loved the shoe, but once I tried Lunar, I never turned back. Then again, I definitely DO NOT plan on running in these. laugh.gif

One more thing, regarding the heel, is it firmer than the rest of the shoe, or does it feel just as soft as the rest of the shoe?

I see your selling a pair on the bay. There are only a few other non-HTM and non-Eugene pairs out there. I think it is safe to say that Houston and CT was the first two places to sell their Flyknits

I saw that too. I like that orange CW better than the orange HTM CW. pimp.gif

There will be a special Olympic colorway that will probably be dropping this week, it's the pair with the blue,green and other colors hues blended in together. That pair is HTM, how do I know? I took the pic and wear tested them. Those will be dropping at 21 mercer, POSSIBLY wink.gif. You can find me on twitter: @jonastheprince or Instagram:Jonastheprince say what's up. Peace ya'll.

That's awesome!

Other than the Lunar One+, will there be more Lunar based Flyknits (i.e. Jason Lester's FK Trainer upper X LunarTrainer midsole/outsole or even an HTM-esque general release with the Lunaracer base) released to the public as a general release? nerd.gif

Ill: the heel is a little firmer than the forefoot, but its still pretty soft. kinda scared to run in these again, the rubber is too thin.. also, i found the pics of my seperated sole. will post when i get home!
