Picked up the Kobe 9 details on Saturday. First basketball shoe i've owned in forever and I'm in love. I just couldn't say no to the flyknit. They're somewhat tough to pull off casually, but whatever, they're a beautiful pair of shoes.
Anyone order the Hyperfeels from NDC yet? I thought about pulling the trigger but I think I need to see them in person first. I don't see myself wearing them casually like I do the rest of the Flyknits.
I only tried on the tops, but no, not 2x in my opinion. I don't like my gym stuff tight but I like it fitted. I usually wear the nike fitted dri-fit in true to size, and sizing 1 up fit about the same. To give you an idea i'm 5'8", 160, 39" chest and 31" waste and I needed a large.
Also, I only got to see the volt and the red/squadron blue pair. When they first posted pics of them I was sure I'd prefer the volt, but in person the red/squadron blue kills them. Maybe just my personal opinion though.
Yep, tried them on and they only had a half size larger than my regular 8.5, and those still fit me really snug. To me they're clearly designed to be worn without socks. I don't know how much they'll stretch though, as I'd say both my racers and trainers stretched some. These definitely feel a lot more elastic.
