Okay now that I've worn my padded version from nikestore for a good two days, here's my thoughts:
TTS (same as nonpadded) works for me, just a bit more snug in the ankle obviously. I have a narrow foot so if you have a wide foot, you might want to find a way to try on your true size and .5 up just in case.
Flat laces are AWFUL replacement laces are a must.
The forefoot zoom unit seems larger on the padded version. It's that or the forefoot is less comfortable on the padded.
The nonpadded looks much better, but if you're putting in heavy running/training hours, the padded would most likely work better. I personally run in lunar glides so it's not a big issue for me.
Also, not sure if it makes a difference for anyone, but the heel tabs are a bit more loose on the padded version.
