I've never tried racers on. I love my trainers to death. is the fit similar? because the forefoot/balls of the foot appear to be closer to the ground on the racer. I like the multi racer, but can't bring myself to get them solely based of aesthetic and if they fit drastically different than the trainers.

Odd they must have gotten a smaller allocation of sz9 in the racers. I didn't order till 9pm est last night and both trainers and racers are good to go according to customer service. I'm a sz 10.5 though so they may have just gotten more of that particular size.

It is a drastic difference, IMO. 

 

I over-pronate so the Racers just don't work for me.  My foot just moves inward way too much.  The trainers are more stable, albeit still a "neutral" shoe, and I wear them just fine with no pronation issues (bear in mind I don't run in these at all--strictly casual. I run in LG4s). The Racers are a performance neutral with no support. 

 

So if your foot is fairly neutral and you don't pronate, then you should be fine.  I love the racers, it just sucks I can't wear them.

 

Also I've found the Racers to fit .5 size bigger than the Trainers (super thin socks in trainers).  Racers are TTS for me and trainers are .5 size down. Hope that helps a bit.  There isn't much discussion here about stability for these shoes.

that's exactly what I was fearing. I have normal pronation, but I alternate how my foot lands- heel first to conserve energy and coast, vs forefoot when I'm doing sprints.

the only reason I considered the racers is for when I run balls of the foot first because the look of the shoe appears condusive to that. I guess I just wish the multi trainers look like the multi racers

Just wait then.  These are only the first of many MCs.  I don't like any of the first ones coming out, but more will definitely come.  In fact the only new colors I like that are coming out are the Navy Blue Trainers--but that's mainly because of my love for navy blue (and obsidian).

for sure. the solid-looking colorways are somewhat a breath of fresh air. just wish they kept the laces the same.

last years drop had little to no padding in the ankle are. The restock a have been a toss up at best whether you get padding or not. Also the one with padding have the ribbon laces which most people seem to dislike.

Peaple are saying to size up on the ones with padding. Mine are all unloaded, so I have no first hand experience.

Thanks for the explanation. Added padding seems to defeat the purpose of the "minimalist" feel of the shoe. kinda a deal breaker for me, as I really like the "no padding" of the first runs- racers and trainers. IN retrospect, I should have doubled up on both volt racers and orange trainers. My 1st run racers definitely have the "ribbon-ish" dark green/black laces though- flattish that is, and not round.

^ I might be wrong but I think it's only the trainers that are getting the padding. Also the new ribbon laces are completely flat. basically just a strip of nylon.

Has anybody considered/tried removing the heel padding on their trainers? I have a pair of white/blacks with padding and am curious if the build of the heel is still the same as the non padded type underneath
