I would like to be a part of the Flyknit Collective and here is my "application" I guess.

1. I own 2 pairs of Flyknit Trainers and 2 pairs of the Flyknit 1+

2. The moment these were rocked by each and every Olympic Athlete (those who had ties with Nike) I knew I needed to check them out. It was actually Michael Phelps who had me like eek.gif Anyways, I was able to check em out in person at NikeTown San Francisco and the moment I slipped them on, I knew it was going to be a problem. I was hesitant at first to purchase because of the price, but I felt like if I could justify buying a Jordan Retro with crap quality, I can purchase the Flyknit Trainers (Volts) with no regrets! On top of that, the detail of the shoe really is an intricate, beautiful thing.

I'm in my late 20's and I feel like KNOW I'm over Jordan's and have moved onto the next phase of the shoe addiction and that's lightweight, stylish, and comfortable shoes. These 3 factors are essentially what the Flyknit line is ALL about, gotta love that! My volt trainers are my favorite pair for Flyknit anything.

For those who don't want to read TL:DR - I saw the Trainers during the Olympics and had to go check them out when they released at my local NikeTown. Bought the 2nd to last pair of 9.5 (volts) and never looked back.

3. I was on vacation for about 2.5 weeks and just came back to this thread where it jumped a couple dozen pages and I love that it has been rejuvenated. I've been pretty active on this thread along with the Flyknit 1+. Also, I was the first to point out the extra heel padding/ribbon laces for the Trainers when I purchased the Black Trainers off of Run.com. I prefer the non padded version because it looks better aesthetically.

I brought those into NikeTown San Francisco to ask if they have ever seen Trainers with the padding and they said no and told me they were probably fake mean.gif. Told him it was purchased from a Finish Line sister company and multiple employee's said I was duped (go figure).

4. LL

5. I wear my true size in both Flyknit Trainers and Flyknit 1+ and that's size 9.5.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Kicking myself for not copping both the Reds and the Blue Glows last Summer when they were all available at 21 Mercer. That photo looks excellent.

Flyknit Collective Application

 

[Photo is not physically tagged since I took the pic a few days ago. I can provide handwritten tags w/ date to whomever needs verification.]

 
I think Flyknits are an amazing piece of modern art. How Nike stays on the bleeding edge of technology and manufacturing is unmatched. The style, comfort, and timeless design cements the Flyknit Trainer (and its brethren) in the Nike history books.
 
I fell in love with Flyknits ever since seeing the Volt Trainers during the Olympics, but never pulled the trigger on a pair until I saw my friend's Flyknit Trainer collection on Instagram a few weeks ago. In 2 weeks, I've been able to purchase my favorites from Batch 1, including the Volts, Blue Glow, University Red, Total Orange, Sequoia, Black, and White Trainers. I've also purchase my favorite color way from Batch 3: Atomic Turquoise/Volt. I will probably add a few select Flyknit models/color ways in the future, but I really believe in quality over quantity. 
 
Being fairly new to Flyknits, I hope to play a more active part in the thread when needed (and hopefully this thread doesn't get cluttered up like others on NT).
 
(Not shown: Flyknit Lunar 1 in Black/White - Women's color way)
 
Size 11 US
 
Thanks

EX:
1. 3 Nike Flyknit Trainer+, 1 Nike Flyknit Racer, 1 Nike Lunar Flyknit HTM NRG, 3 Nike Flyknit One+

2. All I can remember is seeing the Flyknits over a year ago and thinking I NEED these! laugh.gif The wait for the release was killing me and the couple of HTM releases before the general release wasn't helping lol Then we had the red and blue pairs releasing at the Oregon Trials and I was really itching to pull the trigger on them too. Jumping ahead to the release.. I was so excited on copping my pairs that I was at the Nike Running Stanford store an hour and a half before the store opened. I tried both the Trainers and Racers and loved them both. The design and weight of the shoes were impressive and I copped both Trainers and Racers in volt. Even my GF was impressed. She passed when were at the store but when I tried them on at home she wanted them laugh.gif. I ended up driving 30 min back to the store and finding out her size was being held for an employee. We ended up going back a week later and bought her pair. To sum it all up the Flyknits are an instant classic once I seen the pics a year ago imo. There are endless possibilities for this shoe and I can't wait for both Trainers and Ones multis to come out. Also can't forget iDs which I'm saving up for. Hope I can make the Team! On another note I can't wait for the Frees to come out and Nike needs to get these (pictures below) into production. I know a handful of us have been waiting for these.

I wouldn't consider it a raid if we are giving them business and clearing out their clearance stock for them. They must be just as happy as we are.

Flyknits have been a favorite sneaker of mine since they're release, but it was only until recently that I started acquiring more and more pairs. My first pair was the university red/total orange trainers but I ended up trading them for the red racers seen below since I had a difficult time matching the orange with anything. This was around the time I got my volts which I had always wanted but didn't want to settle for the racers or electric greens. From there it has turned into a full out addiction and Flyknits have taken over my sneaker collection. I love the intricate woven design along with the combination of function, form and universal style they offer. I'm waiting on two more pairs to arrive and then will make a serious effort to obtain the blue glow colorway. My favorite pair is the white/black but my go to is the blue glow/volt since they really pop.



*forgot to tag the picture but I will replace it with a clearer one soon

This is the first thread I check when logging into niketalk and I often try to answer questions that others post.

StoneyTony, steal of a trade getting rid of your Red/Orange Trainers for Red Racers! Although I generally like Trainers over Racers...that Red/Orange CW is the most unappealing Trainer (IMO).

It seems so hard to find HTMs in a 12 or 12.5. nerd.gif

You guys figure that a pair of DS Banned 1s for some HTMs is a fair trade? Or is one on the losing end?

That's true. I've been contemplating it actually. If I saw the right pair of HTMs that I'm looking for, then I think I might just do the trade.
The price keeps getting ridiculous for a pair of Banned 1s now though and it's almost impossible to find good, DS pairs. laugh.gif

I've been looking for a lot of the OG colors and those I tend to find in 12s more readily available than 10s (my size). 

So I guess you have a better chance of finding hard to find OG colors, but much more difficult chances to get HTMs.

 

And I would take HTMs in a heartbeat--especially if it's the multicolor ones.  Like Andrepad11 said, they are one and done.
