flyknit could probably just tossed inside a pillow case and then to the washer in cold and it'll come out good as new

love all whites but I kind of wish the sole on those were a gum sole

Yeah I've put flyknit a in the washing machine without a pillow case and they've been fine.

Gentle cycle cold I assume? Did you remove the laces
post #10009 of 10831
Yep. laces and insole out.
For my chukkas I used to just put them in a bucket of hot water with some dish soap and soak them for an hour, then rub any marks with a cloth and rinse them.
I stopped doing that though because the sole kind of absorbs the water and starts wearing out a lot quicker.
My beaters still go in the wash but the rest I just spot clean with a damp cloth if they start looking horrible, but for the most part I think worn shoes look better anyway.
Flyknits are extremely easy to clean, just don't use a brush.

had ordered 4.0 free flyknits but toe box big and bloated

3.0s fit a lot better but still cushy, shit is nowhere near barefoot or any thinner than 5.0s

I've been enjoying the cushioning of the Lunar Epics. Really different from the rotation of Free's I usually run in. Feels like I'm jogging on a pair of trampolines.

anyone have real life wear pics? been debating these but not sure how they'll look on my feet
post #10013 of 10831
^^^ just search Instagram and you'll see on foot pics. They have enough shape to them with the heel tab and everything else that they don't look like socks.

Does anybody know if Europe has additional pieces in the Nikelab essentials collection? All I see on the US site for pants are a tech fleece essential but some European shops are getting something called "essential 7/8 pant" that is like a slim, cropped trouser style.

They have definitely strayed away from the barefoot feel of Frees, most of them are real cushioned these days.

Have you tried the Metcons, they feel more barefoot than the Frees. I think the barefoot trainers have been pretty much replaced by the Trainer 1.0s.





And speaking of Metcons, pics of the 3s has leaked though it could just be a sample.

The 1.0s are too flat, I mean I get it but I don't like how they look.

I'm actually using my chucks for the gym and it's working out nicely.

I'm prob returning my free mercurials. Wanted these for the longest time, but now that I have em they don't do it for me oddly enough. Think it may be the free sole. Also $200 for a pair of Nike's is steep.

I guess I like Flyknits!







Actually I just got the Tennis and AF1 FKs to compare, one is going back...maybe...

Really want to try a pair of these. Not super crazy about any of the colorways. The Gyakusous are sort of cool.
post #10020 of 10831

I got black and just blacked out the swoosh with a permanent marker. Looks pretty clean now, I think. They are selling these everywhere so a few are bound to hit outlets eventually if you just want to try the sole for running.
