I fill in the entire shoe with no room to move with socks and get just a few millimeters of room barefooted.

Would these break in over time after a few wears or would I be better off returning these and getting a 1/2 size up? (Pretty bummed out now that I can't exchange sizes for the white pair since nearly all larger sizes have sold out on NDC)

Yeah I had the same problem, my size UK 8s got delivered which is what i'm in all my running shoes and casual shoes and they were snug as hell.

I've worn them all day yesterday and today and they have stretched out abit and hopefully will stretch out a little more too.

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.


This is DEAD on.

They charge you for the initial amount, but after all this you will get a partial refund back for whatever additional discount you received.

 

has anyone return anything to RRS? i used their prepaid label and returned on 5/25. as of today the tracking number still doesn't work. their customer service told me it usually takes 3 weeks before usps ships it out because it's considered bulk shipment. i'm starting to get worry i'll be out $250+ since i received no proof of shipping it.

Takes a long time, but you'll get your refund. FYI, they will deduct a restocking/shipping fee from that refund.

Mine just came in today as well don't know if I wanna keep them size 10.5 was a little to small :/
post #6523 of 84804

I'd gladly take that 10.5 orange racer off your hands ;).  Just missed out on the FTTF deal.  My girl just picked up her size though.  $80 is tough to beat.

post #6524 of 84804

If there are any UK heads around, check your local TK Maxx, they have racers in some sizes in the green and orange c/w for £70.

Considering the RRP is £130 odd that's pretty damn good.

Mine are really true to size. I have the same size as my roshes. Wearing with regular black socks(no church, not thick) They are a perfect fit, almost snug but not really? If that makes sense. Wore them today tho and they didnt bother me. I could size up and still fit them but I'm not sure if I would want to size up laugh.gif

Exactly. on top of that I do have an issue with the padded trainer aesthetically. Ribbon laces however, I'm a big fan of.
