He should get lunarglide 4s. They are more suitable if he's a long distance runner.

Flyknits aren't the best for long distance running. I'd go with Lunarglides 3, 4 or 5s. I personally run in 3s.

Hello sneaker enthusiasts! My first pairs of the new flyknit trainers arrived today. After a whole year of being devoted to the roshe run i decided to switch things up a bit.

IMO FK > Roshe and its not even close. Though the price point if the Roshes do make them very attractive.

Is there really such a big aesthetic difference between the original Trainers and the new ones with padding?

nope, as stated on previous page...only differences are the heel padding and the ribbon laces as opposed to no padding and round laces. runners complained that the heel rubbed and the laces didn't stay tied (i guess) so they adjusted to help make a better performing product.

seems like nike is damned if they do, damned if they dont.

doesn't bother me tho

FYI for those interested in replacing the "ribbon laces" with the latest batch of White Flyknit Trainers. I bought a pair of Kiwi Sport Laces - Oval - 45" from Nordstrom Rack for $1.75. Here are some comparison pics. The white of the Kiwi laces is a little bit "off" compared to the ribbon laces, but once both shoes have the same set of laces on, you can't really tell.

 

Edit: Disregard the Kiwi packaging mistake. I don't really know why the laces packaging says 'Flat Black' when they are obviously 'Oval White'

For the small footers, there's a size 7 on RRS of the Blk/wht trainers.

Use code CX13N165 to bring them to 127-130 shipped for VIP members.

I would say it isn't exactly an aesthetic difference but more so a fitting issue. I've learned to overcome my hate for the ribbon laces (which can easily be swapped out), but I can't get past the padding. In my opinion, the padding actually made the shoe less comfortable for a variety of reasons. The original unpadded trainer had a form fitting heel cup which supports and holds your heel in place. Having no lining or padding made for a very natural, seamless fit; you barely feel the fact that you are wearing sneakers. The introduction of the padding took away that feeling. Once I put my foot in the shoe, now all I feel is rough padding and although 3/4 of the shoe still feels natural and form fitting, the padded area ruins the experience. The whole point of having a thin layer of flyknit wrapping around your foot is defeated by the addition of padding which renders the new trainer model no different than any conventional sneaker.

I switched the laces in my blk/gray FK racers to the NB oval laces and it's a huge improvement. The flat laces constantly came untied and they didn't hold as well in the lace loops so I had to lace the shoes tighter. I would highly recommend the swap for anyone suffering from similar issues.

You can still call them about it. RoadRunnerSports has a great customer service. I had done something similar where I forgot to add in a code at check out but I called them the next day and the representative gladly adjusted the price for me after I provided a code. They charge you for the initial amount, but after all this you will get a partial refund back for whatever additional discount you received.

post #6506 of 84858
I can understand the talk/complaining about the padding if it's a matter of not knowing whether a pair you're ordering has it or not because it may affect the fit of the Flyknits but what's the real issue with the laces? Is that just a matter of aesthetics?

I personally don't think the ribbon laces look that bad but if you're saying it has to do with them coming untied as a justification, I have no idea what you're talking about...they stay tied better than oval laces unless you don't know how to properly tie your shoes.

I am going to purchase Flyknit Racer, but I don't know what size to wear.

I wear size 9.5 in Nike Free Run 2 and 3.

Can you guys recommend me what size to wear?

Thanks :)
