    Also doubled up on the triple black trainers from JJ. These and the lunar 1s are all time favorites for me.

    @illustrayt, Govrn swaps? If so, will they negotiate on price for more than one pair? Thanks!

    They’d negotiate the price, but I think you have to order in bulk.

    For my batches (~10), the turnaround was about three months.

    Nice customs, @illustrayt! :pimp:

    I wish I had extra FKRs laying around :lol:

    Anyway, I passed by the local Marshall’s near my place and scooped these up for the Bae for $40

    You’re not alone, bro! I needed one, too :lol: I didn’t leave the store until searched the men’s aisles cuz I couldn’t believe it! There had to be one in my size but no dice :lol:

    Keep ‘em coming, man! It’s all appreciated:pimp:. Apologies if this was asked before, but when you look for lunarlon soles, are the soles the same size as the FKRs (like a size 9 sole for a size 9 racer upper?)

    Kinda regret it that I didn’t take advantage of the loud colors way back when it all started to be available everywhere.

    For the FKR X LR Swap, the LR sole has to be down 1/2 a size from the FKR Upper. In that example, if the FKR is a 9, the sole has to be an 8.5.

    The hype around the FKRs has died. It’s definitely a buyer’s market out there. I’m sure you can find those cws at great prices. Heck, I’m always on the lookout for some of the better cws for the low.

    Thanks for the info! :pimp:

    I’m definitely in the market for some racers. It’s just way too cold for me to wear one here in Boston so I’m hesitant. :lol:

    The weave on these are insane!

    All in all? For that specific pair, I think it costs me ~$190 all together ($70 for the upper, $40 for the LR sole and $80 for the swap).

    I pretty much cop whatever colorways and sole donors I can get at a good deal or that I see potential in for future swaps. Then I store them until I'm ready to send them out. I have dozens of donors right now ranging from mostly LRs, Epic React 1s, AM1s and Zoom Flys. I'm on the lookout for cheap ZoomX soles :nerd:
