    I think this has to have been implemented for some time now. Not an outlet store but I remember calling Nike Flatiron and wanted to know if they’d take phone orders for the VF 4%, said they would as long as it was a gift card

    I couldn’t see why that would not transition to an outlet/clearance store as well.

    The question is does EVERY outlet store accept phone orders via GC or is it a select few.

    I’d say a select few. I know somebody who is able to look up stock at stores across the country if I give him a style/color code. I’ve tried many times with gift cards to order when he is able to find a place with stock. I have yet to get anybody to fulfill my request of using a gift card to do a phone order.

    While y’all are talking about gift cards and whatnot, F&F is coming up next week, starting around the 20th.

    Hit up GOVRN on IG. They’ve been nothing but awesome to work with!

    I just sent out my next batch of twelve to be swapped. Eight of which are ZF1 based. :nthat:

    whats the turnaround like with that much order?

    does he send it one at a time when a pair finishes or do you get a truck backing down your driveway filled with shoes like harden?

    ~3 months. LOL! I get one delivery when they’re all completed. It feels like Christmas all over again when they’re delivered!

    Are you running competitively (hard runs) in them or is mostly causal wears or light runs?

    Both. But I’m starting to train again. I’ve been running in the low-mid7min/mile pace in them.

    Agreed on GOVRN. I'm getting my first two pairs back later this week. Both are Zoom Fly FK midsoles. One has a Streak 6 upper, the other a Lunarepic Flyknit upper. I'm a 2:55 marathoner and have always wanted to have better fitting uppers on the soles that work for me. As long as they hold up at 6-7 min pace for 300 miles, they are going to be very nice to have. Can't wait to try them. Will be sending him a pair of Vaporflys to put a streak 6 upper on them before my next marathon. Turnaround time was 3.5 weeks, not bad.

    Dope! What color combo did you opt for for that LunarEpic X ZF2 hybrid?

    I was going to send two in too, but I “swapped” out for an FKR X ZF1 again.

    Stupid question: do you use the same size upper as midsole/sole?

    I have the original vaporfly in gray and the multi color lunar epic 1.... would love to do that swap.
