alright so sizing down .5, would you say that there is a thumb-length between your big toe and the end of the shoe?

And getting these:

I'm actually going to get the volt racers and deciding between the mostly black/white up there or the black with white toe. The decision is tough on the trainers because the black is easier to wear because it's subtle but also it doesn't show off the technology of the flyknit.

the one on the left is tts. there is like 1.5 thumb widths at least, and that continues around all of my other toes on the outside. when i take a step the shoe creases around the whole edge of my toes.

 

the one on the right is .5 down. a little hard to see with the angle, but there is about a thumb width of space between my big toe and the end and about half a thumb width around the other toes.

i'd say it's just personal preference. at most i will be wearing a super thin sock, but i will probably go no socks many times over the course of the summer even though i know they will get nasty.

So does anyone know if Finish Line will have these online or not? I have a $20 coupon I want to use.

Can't decide between the Volt or Orange Trainers!

is RRS carrying the same shoes Fleet Feet is releasing this Friday? (sorry if this has been answered, I'm so confused with everything related this shoes)

Thanks again, uw!

Call your local Nike Running store, and ask about 'em. Two within my area'll launch 'em on Friday.

Regarding RRS, I don't think they'll have a wide cw selection. Judging from my local RRS's inventory of cws for the same shoe, I'd bet they'd only have up to three cws MAX.

I want the Black/Whites for sure, having trouble deciding on the 2nd pair. Probably Red/Orange or Blue/Volt to show off the knit a lil more pimp.gif

i was getting a pair of racers and trainers but i've noticed about the red/blue/orange-blue trainers, that the inside foot of the shoe doesn't have that black part. I mean this:

700

I like that style than all blue or red etc. bummer

post #794 of 84712
this thread is great. so much info being shared. at the most, imma get a pair of the gr trainers for myself and one for my pops - really disappointed that they dropped the lunar - if anything, i'd prefer the sole used on the shoes made for that runner dude. i'm really holding out for a pair of HTMs but that pair on ebay right now is at a stupid price.
post #795 of 84712
^^ I think the only asymmetrical pairs of the general release are both color-ways of the Racer and the Volt Trainer. I think every other pair has the same coloring on both side of the shoe.


^The eBay prices are ridiculous even for the GR's, but $2,000 buy it now for the HTM lunar Trainers? Too ridiculous.
post #796 of 84712
2Gs????? Wtf?! Hypebeasts need to back the hell away from this release surely there must be some crappy Jordan Spizike colourways they can beast over instead right?

2gs sounds a lot but if you think about it, there is only 100 of each HTM so chances of seeing/meeting someone with the same shoe is rare. There are plenty of other shoes that are less limited and go for the same amount.

im so confused by this post, maybe because its early in the morning and I haven't quite woken up yet. But, the shoe on the left is TTS, so if I were a 10.5 and got a 10.5 I would have THAT MUCH extra room in the front of the shoe?!

I can't believe you just tried to rationalize spending $2g on a pair of sneakers.

 

Are "sneakerheads" really this obsessed?

So everyone should stop buying what they love because 2gs is too much for you? I think 500k is too much for a car but you dont see me knocking others.

post #801 of 84712
I'm a little surprised with everyone saying to go half size down. I haven't bought a pair yet but I thought most Nike running shoes I've worn fit a little snug compared to their others styles. When Frees first came out I thought they fit fairly small but I think they've adjusted that with newer models. Maybe these will be the same.

Im sorry to ask but will the volt/black colorway on the trainers come out tomorrow? Thanks
post #804 of 84712
sorry. i was just referencing the general release trainers dropping tomorrow. disappointed that they made the switch to the non-lunar midsole. part of the reason why i'm not going to try hard to get one and why i'll save some money and try for another HTM trainer.

Yes, I believe it's the volt with black toe area coming out tomorrow.
post #806 of 84712
Is it going to be difficult obtaining these? I'm talking about like showing up 30 mins before Nike town opens ?

Didn't someone say earlier in the thread that lunar tooling was going to be made available late this year/early next year?

"While the London Olympics opening this weekend, Nike launches Flyknit, its latest technological innovation.

Launch of the limited edition exclusively HTM France Stadium in Paris and colette this Saturday, July 28.

The Olympics are often synonymous with technological revolution for the brand swoosh. And 2012 is sure to appeal. Beaverton brand is preparing to officially open Flyknit, its latest innovation, and thus allow many athletes to boost their level of performance ... Explanations and recall facts.


February 2012, New York City. Mark Parker (Nike CEO), along with Carl Lewis, is a preview of the technology and its early versions FlyKnit products. Directly based on the technique of knitting, this new process provides a second skin, conforming completely to form foot.

While the search for ultra comfort is almost driven to its peak, the first products bénéficiants Technology FlyKnit are simply stunning lightweight: 160 g for 42 Flyknit Racer in size, is almost the weight of the smartphone that you use every day! We know many runners who already salivating ahead ...


Comfort, loss of the glue, the stitching and redundant materials, lightweight Supreme ... If Flyknit repels lmites in terms of innovation and pure hard, the new technology and its first models perform another feat - probably the most complicated achieve - They agree to all the basketball junkies all over the world!

Veteran collectors, new comers, runners, all agree that in terms of style, the two and Flyknit Flyknit Racer Trainer + are among the most beautiful creations out in recent years, all brands. Also, to better prepare the public output, Nike has had the intelligence to revive HTM limited editions, these special lines devised jointly by Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker. The strategy is obvious: Build the desire among purists as ever with superb limited editions very hard to get and let the magic influence networks that operate a few months later on the general public.


Six months after the first press conference and outputs in HTM few strategic towns, the results are compelling: While the world of sneaker wants Flyknit while they are not even mounted on the catwalks of London Olympics !

The six new variations of colors HTM Flyknit + Trainer come to France this Saturday, July 28. Limited to 260 pairs per color for the whole world, they are among the rarest Flyknit placed on the market in 2012. In France, you can get them in that Stadium and colette Paris. The quantities available are very few, and it will probably take the public out of school to satisfy the greatest number.


Limited edition HTM at the end of July and General Release later this year? The debate is open, the countdown is started. See you Saturday, July 28."

Phew!

Same here. If the Trainers that'll be available tomorrow had Lunar tooiling, it'd be a very expensive day for me. laugh.gif

Yup! Spring 2013. Lunar One+.
post #810 of 84712
the chukkas and the other flyknit shoe dropping in feb 2013 both have lunar.

260 pairs each color is actually good news. the others were only 100. the blue/volt HTM trainer is the nicest but i like the red/volt cause it's unusual.
