I think the general consensus of why they stopped producing them was that they are more expensive to produce than Racers since they use more Flyknit material and have heel and forefoot zoom in the sole, compared to just forefoot zoom in the Racers.
On another note, my attempt at a sole swap is coming along pretty nicely. Definitely messed up some parts (which was inevitable since it's my first try), but I think taking your time heating and prying, as Lemon suggested, is the key. It takes a super long time to separate the Racer soles cleanly so I'm going to have to remove the excess sole with pliers and a blow dryer. Lunaracers come in tomorrow from Jimmy Jazz and I'm going to try the boiling water method Lemon shared and let y'all know how that goes. Here's a (rough) sneak peek:
But if you think about it thats not really an excuse because people will buy them now, trainers wont last a day in stores and 2 there are plenty other shoes that cost much more and have more technology that dont sell and they still produce them. just my opinion though
what sole are you putting on the racers?
