Shox R4 FW on Eastbay.com
someone needs some new work shoes!!!
I'm still wondering why the didn't use the translucent flywire material. Oh and in terms of looks OG R4 > these.
I was in favour of seeing what flywire would look like on some retro kicks, but to me these look horrible!
Is that screen printed Flywire??? LOL
Yup about as useful as the flywire in the Hyperize ie not very
i like the shoe, don't like the price tag. flywire looks like it's there for decoration only.
I'm a sucker for R4 so I can't hate.
I thought the same thing....lol
i wish they would just end the shox series, but sadly they still do quite well in term of general consumerism. so nike had to upgrade somehow to keep ppl onboard. of course, for the smart people who are actually open-minded and willing to try new and BETTER things, there's always a plethora of stuff that nikehas engineered since the introduction of the shox
Nike's marketing department must love this thing.
One shoe, two gimmicks.
Wow they really killed a great shoe.
Not feelin that colorway at all, if they make the ones that were posted here a few months back I'll cop. I got an $80 eastbay giftcard that I need tospend.
Flywire seriously serves NO purpose like that..Not even attempted....
Ha! More like one tech and infinite gimmicks (flywire now on every shoe).
Flywire can be serious application in some shoes, but this execution is a joke.
i would never get these. shox are disgusting anyways, but WITH fw? no
i think this shoe is gonna b sick with other colorways, not feeling this particular one though but im big on shox
New colorway up on finishline
Always wanted some R4's so these might just get copped. Damn you Nike, thought my pockets were gonna be straight until the IX's drop...first the Tailwinds and now these.
why change something in a shoe that was perfectly fine nike? they dont look any lighter and would probably just cost more than the og r4's
This is just a guess, but perhaps the translucent material that the flywire is normally embedded in doesn't work with the way the forefoot midsole is overlasted, so they were forced to use synthetic leather on the uppers? I could be wrong but I THINK that most flywire shoes have external midsoles; I don't recall seeing any overlasted. Kind of makes the flywire extraneous though, they shoulda just scrapped them.
New CW is MUCH better. Was wondering when those were going to drop.
