post #83851 of 103474
Moo, I wandered around the Languedoc a month or two ago in my flyknits and they were great for what I was doing (hiking, exploring, playing with wild boars (0)). They're really packable too, if you get the original one that doesn't have the lunar sole. Also, being totally serious - back when I wore Clarks DB's, I logged some serious miles in those things and always found them really comfortable. They'd be perfect for the temperature this time of year, too. You can wear with shorts or jeans. I always found them a useful shoe to have around, for whatever reason.

I hope by playing with wild boars you meant roasting them whole.

There's a bunch of different flyknit shoes.  Flyknit frees are one kind (obviously on a free sole).  There are also flyknit lunar 1s, flyknit trainers (the other one pictured above) and flyknit racers.

So, like... other than looks, are there any differences I should know about before plunking down the cash for a pair?

Free sole isn't as padded as Racer/Trainer/Lunar. IIRC from the Nike thread, Lunars are the most padded. I've got the trainers though and they're really comfortable.

As soon as I read moo's post I was going to say Clarks DB (0)

This week in school we're going to decide what we want to do as our "gymnasiearbete", which is basically a "course" that we choose ourselves and that we're each going to do on our own until february next year (which is when you should be done). We will also write a 10-20 page thesis with the framing of a question (which is the whole "reason" you're doing this work) and a report of the whole process and what results you achieved. Oh and you can only pass the assignment or fail it, no high or low grades, so as long as it is somewhat related to science/physics/biology/math and you do it well you're fine.


Right now I'm thinking:
"What ratios should be used for an optimal trebuchet, speaking in terms of velocity and distance of the projectile shot?" (=I'd build trebuchets and try them out)



But to be honest, I'd prefer doing something clothing/accesory-related, so, anyone happen to have any bright ideas for a "question"/"issue" that'd be both somewhat scientific and clothing-related?

(note: we're supposed to build/test/try stuff out and use that to come to conclusions, so can't just write some hypothetical question and be done with it)

Man, building trebuchets is very expensive. I had to make one for Honors physics in high school and it cost nearly $700 (split 4 ways, but still). Of course, ours had to be 8+ ft tall with at least 200 lbs of counterweight...

the hell kinda high school did you go to?

Currently in the market for two dozen large sized trebuchets, will follow this topic closely.

no london, I wish. I don't think fok is too keen on paying $2k to send me to england for an interview. gonna be done through phone and email.

I've never found frees that comfortable for long walking, much prefer something on the lunar sole. lots of support.

I can proxy trebuchets for you. There's this Swedish label called Flïng, I'll hook you up bro for just a $15 dollar charge.

Dude, just buy one from Yoox. They go down to like $150 at the end of the season
