Anyone tried to remove the padding from their trainers? I don't like the padded fit on my black/whites.

Someone mentioned that a few pages ago and he said he doesn't recommend it.

I steamed my racers a few days ago, came out beautifully. Amazing fit.

I don't remember what page or who tried it, but they mentioned that there's a plastic piece under the padding that may cut into your achilles if the padding is removed. I wouldn't recommend trying to remove the padding.

I'll take pics of my racers when I can.

For those interested in how I steamed them, I have a steam cleaner and let it heat up for 15-20 mins. Then, I simply sprayed the entire shoe. You can actually see the knit compacting, it's pretty cool.

people speak about the padding as if they've never worn padded sneakers/runners before.

just a heads up, probably 90% of the sneakers you've worn in your lifetime have been "padded."

let it go.

Can't really understand this guy but this is the process I followed for steaming. Again this works pretty good if you bought 1/2 to a full size bigger than TTS fit

Its just because we had two versions of it, so some prefer the nonpadded. At first I didnt care, but now i'll be lying if i said i didn't.

 

Does steaming change the shape of them?

Mine fit fine, I went tts with them. After steaming they were very tight, but after wear they fit perfectly.

Andre, shape didn't change much. Knit is just tighter

Hi all, does anyone have any on-foot photos of the tarp green / volt trainers? Can't seen to find any on google images or any reviews on youtube. Thanks!

There's a difference when you have pairs of the same shoe and some are un-padded and some are padded.  Point blank, the padded versions don't fit or feel the same.  It's bulkier.  Now if the shoe originally came with padding and people are complaining, then yeah, your point is valid.  But not in this case......

I Agree 100%, I failed to mention that my electric greens were non padded and the fit was amazing. So I ordered the black/white in the same size, and it just feels different with the padding. Reason I got these shoes was because of the feel without all that extra "padding". Hence why I asked the question in the first place. But thanks to IRyebreadII and theMantonio for answering the question.

Okay guys, here are some pics of my steamed Volt Racers for those who are curious. The iPhone camera couldn't really capture the color of the Volts, but whatever.

I've worn them a few times since steaming. As you can probably tell the shape isn't any different, the fit is much better however.

I think a lot of you guys are being a little OD about the padding, definitely think it's a mantle thing for most of you

Come on...lets be real. If that were the case go out and buy some Vans Authentics without the ankle padding for $40.

The shoes are beautiful either way (imo). Enjoy them.

They look good! I gotta do my orange racers...i think the steaming will eliminate the little creasing and bring it together tighter in the toebox area.  Thanks for sharing!

I agree with the shoes being beautiful.  For me, the padding is not a deal breaker my any means.

Nice, they don't any different! And you just steamed them for 15 minutes and put them on?

 

 

 

Some people like the padded but Most people don't. Everybody has their opinion, this topic doesn't need anymore debating.

Yep! Steamed for about 15 minutes and threw them on. The knit is still very tight even after wear, could not be happier with the result.

I'm going to steam my trainers tomorrow, hopefully it comes out just as good!
