Did the OG laces get untied easier? I'm willing to bet that's more of a money decision than a design decision, unlike the padding. Maybe the ribbon laces offset the price of adding padding.

Reminds me of the Janoskis, which originally came with leather laces. People complained about them getting untied easily but wasn't much of an issue for me. Nike ended up ditching the leather laces for round laces and the spare laces changed from round to flat laces. Pretty sure those changes were made for cost reasons.

Hopefully everyone that's hating on the padded/flat-laced versions won't be coming back if or when Nike decides to restock on Volts, Blue Glows, or any of the other OG colorways. laugh.gif

Leave the Flyknits for the real enthusiasts. nthat.gif

I haven't put much miles on mine but i never had that issue so far. 

How about the ppl who actually run and work out in these, did your laces untie easily?

So wait just because I don't like the padded heal/flat laces that doesn't makes me a flyknit "enthusiasts"?

I'm confused by your logic......

pads are for females fellas. 

 

and yes the ribbon laces/padding DOES indeed ruin the flyknit trainer. The only people who think otherwise are people who got into flyknit because they saw kanye wearing them and just got around to getting their first pairs after the 4th or 5th wide scale restock of the black and white trainers. 

 

as for restocks of OG colorways, if they have the padding and BS laces. keep em. had mine since RD july 2012, no need to settle for imitations of the originals.

Not to you specifically, brohem.

I'm talking about anyone that complains about the changes, swears to the original non-padded versions etc., then decides to scoop up multiples of any restocks of the OG c/ws with said changes. That's if Nike decides to do so.

None of my OGs are padded and I scooped my pairs up around the time they were released, yet I can still appreciate a pair that is padded. I WISH Kanye never wore Flyknits. mean.gif

I'm just trying to say that the same people who complain about these changes, are more than likely to come back and scoop pairs of the "sought-after" OG c/ws if Nike decides to drop them with the padding.

People complained about the OG laces and lack of padding when these first released. Now people are complaining about the updated laces and padding. People just like to complain. It's life.

Kanye honestly has NOTHING to do with this; he isn't that influential. I don't see anybody wearing flyknits around me (NJ). I do like the non-padded version more, but it doesn't make them as hideous as ppl make them seem

True I also think Kanye has nothing to do with the success of the flyknit but there were people earlier in the thread that tried to argue because he wore the white pair that suddenly made flyknits popular which was far from the truth.

Multiple colors sold out on the initial NDC launch way before Kanye wore his pair.
post #5651 of 84794
You guys almost sound as bad as the Roshe Thread heads complaining when Lebron wore em...
Who cares if Kanye wore em?
Wear them because YOU like em.
Now if him wearing them caused the value to go up and you all of a sudden can't get a pair, than you might have a point.
But let's be real. Kanye wearing these didn't affect resale value at ALL, and then NDC hit everybody over the head with a restock.
MOOT POINT.

yeah according to that article there were no reported injuries. I hope it doesn't take too long for it to reroute assuming the package isn't too badly damaged

Just got my pair from NDC and it's non-padded. Size 11. I'm stoked and dissapointed at the same time. Lol

So much for that theory that the NDC restock was PADDED-only...

EDIT: I was mistaken, looks like its luck of the draw... ::Kanye Shrug::

Ummm....


People have already stated that they received non padded versions in past pages.

Old news
post #5659 of 84794

Just got my pair in from NDC and they are padded.  Size 10.  Bummed out.  The padding kind of makes the fit a little tighter.  I need to determine whether i should size up to a 10.5 (which is what i wear in the lunars) or just say screw and return them.  I don't want to order a 10.5 and then get a non-padded version.

Congrats where'd you pick them up?
post #5662 of 84794
I wonder if the size has anything to do with getting a non-padded or not. Probably not.

You're welcome.

Marathon sports in Boston also has black/white trainers in stock. The one on display had NO-PADDING for those who are so worried about that stuff.
post #5668 of 84794

Well, The Size 10 padded doesnt fit.  So I had to order another Size 10 and 10.5 in case both are padded.  My real nightmare would be the size 10 is padded and the size 10.5 is non-padded.  HOPEFULLY I'll get the right combination. Nike Chat reps were of no help either.

So I have decided to make a contest for the logo of The Flyknit Collective.

I believe that when designing something, rules shouldn't apply; so therefore there will be no guidelines smile.gif

The winning design will be voted by y'all. The contest will end in ONE week. I'd like to have all designs by next Sunday.

Here is some inspiration:

















Last but not least, the incentive.

The winning design will receive a $25 Nikestore gift card and the opportunity to be member #2.


Forgive me if this is posted more than once, I think this may be the last post of the page..
