I tried those on and they looked awful, avoid and get these http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/pd/sportswear-tech-fleece-mens-pants/pid-11085238/pgid-11165999 or these instead http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/pd/nikelab-essentials-tech-fleece-mens-pants/pid-10980581/pgid-11272071

Are either of those cropped by any chance? Trying to get something that doesn't stack.

The NikeLab Essentials looks good but I think it's one of those must try too, in some pics they look too baggy though they do look cropped enough. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


I think I'm gon' end up passing on those Hypervenoms too, sounding like they're simply going to be too tight and sizing up too much and it's just going to look overly long, think I'm just going to stick to Free Mercurial Superflys and Footscape Magistas.

Anyone own or tried the Mercurial Spiridons? Do they fit similar to the Superlys or Magistas?

My Vapor Flash jacket is shedding its 3M coating so severely that it has rubbed off on and embedded into a lot of my training gear. Can't see them normally but with the camera flash on those little glass spheres reflect a lot still.

That's actually pretty awesome, I thought those on your backpack were just beads of water or something.

How are your LunarEpics holding up? I think you're one of the very few here who has logged a few runs with them.
post #10263 of 10846

Structurally the Lunarepics are still good. I am getting used to running on something with so much support, since I am used to Free soles usually. However, the material used for the Lunar sole is very spongey and absorbs everything. While the soles on my several year old Nike Free runs still clean up pure white as they are pure rubber, the Lunarepics are already dirty and many of the marks cannot be removed easily. I could try bleach but I got used to just giving a rub down to my training shoes with a wet tissue which cleans most of them up very well. One of those all black NikeID LunarEpics would be a good solution for those that don't like dirty white soles on their running shoes.

 

Also, I tried those Mercurial Spiridons together with a pair of NSW Magistas on the same day. The Magistas were true to size but the Mercurial Spiridons I had to size down 1 full size; and even then they were so pointy they were a good 2 or 3 cms longer than the Magistas, which looked really odd like I was wearing elf shoes or something. The Mercurial Spiridons felt to have a lot nicer materials and construction though. The Magistas felt very cheap to me in comparison.

Any Achilles bothers for you with the LunarEpics?

I've tried both and own the NikeLab Essentials version and I'd say the pictures they have up on End are more accurate of how they fit. The other pair is definitely cut shorter than regular Tech Fleece too.

Does anyone have sizing advice for Air Force 1 Flyknit Lows? My normal Nike size sold out on NDC but is still available in 0.5 size down. (I know they're available from Foot Locker but Nike has the extra 20% off rn).

Don't size down. They fit snug, so tts or even 0,5 up.

Thanks for the sizing tip. Gon' have to try them in store.

How are the soles on the lunarepic? You think you can log in as many miles in them as your free soled runners?

Thanks for the tip and the link with a cheaper price. Do you recommend going tts or sizing down because they're cut looser than typical tech fleece pants?



Free Connect (womens trainers) for $100, would be awesome if they made them in mens, I'd say just size up but from experience, women specific shoes from Nike usually has thinner than usual soles.

For actually playing basketball in?

I've been buying up all the color ways of Huarache 2k4s since they seem to all be hitting clearance racks. Might be top basketball shoe of all time for me.

Other than those, I'm also playing in Lebron XIIIs and still haven't broken in a new pair of AJ XXXs but both can also be had for cheap now.

Agreed with @sussi, do not size down. tts with thinner socks (flyknit should stretch a little bit for a more one-to-one fit) or half size up if you wear thicker socks.

Kind of a broad question but KD9 is probably one of the best cushioned bball shoe out right now, just beware if you have a high instep.

Kobe XIs are pretty comfortable too but they are built long and narrow and it might be a tricky fit if your feets wide.

HyperRev 2016s might be the best bargain you can get right now as they are mostly on sale, the forefoot and heel zoom is just great.

Jordan 29 and 30 are all on sale now too (nike.com has them on sale plus extra 20% off with the code BTS20), that unlocked forefoot zoom is amazing and probably the best utilization of zoom ever.

Been hearing good things about the Hyperdunk 2016s but traction might be 50/50 depending on how you play and the court you play in.

If you're mainly playing outdoors though, the HyperRevs or checks out Kobe Mentality2 as the better options as the outsole won't get destroyed as easily.

I've an old pair of TF sweats that were fine everywhere except the rear which was way too saggy and looked like diapers, I went tts and the thigh/calves were already pretty fitted. Do those new ones fit the same?

For the Essentials version I'd say you should try out whatever size you usually are in the regular TF and 1 size down from that, just to be sure. Also, the black version fits a little tighter than the grey version for some strange reason.

Both the ones I linked don't have that saggy problem in the rear but are still pretty fitted in the calves area.

Do you guys mainly play ball indoors? I can't see paying that much for using them outdoors. I ended up getting kd Trey 5 iii for a little over 80 shipped after reading good reviews. Only wore them once but so far so good.

I typically ball indoors but lately with summer camps taking over gyms, been playing outside. I mainly play with $50 Kobe Mentality 1 and Melo M11 I found for $30 for outdoors. I also have plenty enough in rotation that I could play outdoors with any of them once in a while and it won't really mess up the traction too much.

Most difficult part is finding a pair of shoe with great traction because finding a clean indoor court is next to impossible. Adidas has some good thing cooking too, Lillard 2, Crazy Light Boost '16, Crazy Explosive and DRose 7s are all worth checking out.

Appreciate the tip, will order an XS and a S but it looks like NDC only has the black one in XS. Maybe I'll stop being lazy and go to Niketown one of these days and see if they have NikeLab gear though think only 21 Mercer in NY and maybe Dover Street carries them?
