Mike/Dylan -- can you share a bit of additional sizing advice on the new sport trainers?I love your tennis trainers, but I'm basically exactly between sizes with them (e.g., size 8 is a hair too tight in the toe area; I wear 8.5 with the tennis trainers, but they're about a quarter size too big all around). If that's the case, which direction should I go with the sport trainers?

I've also found current pricing as low as $300-$325 shipped (Carmina's webstore, quality-shop), which just seems too good to pass up relative...
Does anyone know if the shorts' fly is functional (e.g., zip) or not?Thanks.
Inca looks great! Can anyone comment on fit/sizing of Inca vs. Robert?
