    The By You Next% seem to run 1/2 size big. I have the engineered mesh and they’re a touch longer than the OGs. TTS was perfect for me in the regular Next%. TTS will work fine for me in the engineered mesh but it’s close, would be alright had I gone 1/2 size down. I got the flyknit Next% for my wife and I may need to figure out a return on them because she thinks they’re too big. She went TTS in the VF2 flyknit and the same size in the By You Next% flyknit is markedly longer. Kind of annoying really.

    My By You Flyknit VF Next are arriving today. I went with my same size in the VF FK. Hopefully these aren’t too big.

    Asking the important questions! I searched for them on US NDC not showing up.

    I got mine from running warehouse last month (they had black and electric green). Definitely thicker than I was expecting. Looks like they are sold out now but I'd think some other places would still have them. I feel like Nike is really weird about running apparel drops, so I always just grab stuff whenever I find it instead of waiting for it to hit ndc. For example, aeroswift stuff still hasn't show up even though other websites have had it for months (including many non-U.S. versions of ndc). And call me crazy, but the whole reason I want aeroswift gear is because it's my favorite for hot weather, so... you know.... you would think Nike would want to put some of that up on its website...during the summer months... Though I can't say I'd be surprised if they pull a move like they did Errolson's last winter ACG collection, which they put multiple pieces up on ndc for the first time right as the snow was starting to melt.

    This .

    I thought it was just me, I found so many running and aeroswift pieces early spring/summer when I visited the Nike store on Michigan Ave. in downtown Chicago and never saw any of them show up on ndc.

    Yesterday I went to Nike NYC. The place is MASSIVE! But they also had a handful of running apparel that is not on NDC.

    I wonder why this happens, and wish I didn't have to go to the physical store to see this stuff.

    My guess is they’ve changed tack to drop Aeroswift apparel during marathon season when the demand is greater

    Online, that is

    I finally got my By You VF Next. Love the upper and waffle outsole. Hope to get a few miles in these tomorrow. I ordered the same size as my VF FK and they seem to fit well.

    So true... for one of the world’s most efficient supply chains, arguably only 2nd to Apple, Nike is TERRIBLE, absolutely TERRIBLE at a) having consistency between what you find in different stores vs online and b) actually telling you about the features of stuff on product pages. I should know better but I had similar experience with a hot pink Aeroswift vest I saw in passing in store and thought, “Nah, I’ll just buy it online tonight” Of course, no where to be found online. Didn’t go back to the store for a week and it was gone. Also... some of the running gear or accessories have some really cool features but you have to guess to find out how to use them because the product pages simply are NOT written or designed to go through the detail. Bought a convertible top that had this pocket that looked like it had some purpose. Nothing on product page. Had to chat an ‘Expert’ who escalated it to someone who actually designed the jacket, got back to me couple of days later with step by step on how to use the pocket to store the jacket in a more compact way. Why go through all of that effort to design useful function and allow your designers to get creative and not highlight the feature or show how to use it?! I It’s super lazy at best. I love Nike but so goddamn annoying sometimes.

    My other By You VF Next arrived today. Really liking these as well. Had a 20% off code from Nike so I was able to get these for $224.

    I went with a 9 for the original VF. I went with a 9.5 in the VF FK. Got the same size as my VF FK and they fit well. I took them for a treadmill run today and they fit well while running.

    I have a tender achilles and the heel on the VF Next is took firm for my liking so the FK upper on my By You pair is much more comfortable.

    Phones come out and people try to inconspicuously take photos of his shrouded shoes as Pat paces back and forth with adrenaline at exchange 13. Curiosity fills the crowd for those who are paying attention or who care for that matter.

    Couldn't help but chuckle when I read this in the latest Tempo piece. Looks like most of the elite boys have been helping test what Kipchoge will be debuting later this year?

    I'm glad they're going back to FK (what it appears to be).

    I sure hope not. From a purely performance standpoint, FK leaves much to be desired.
