Feels good to see them restock after I just sold two of mine for $220 a pair

Awesome - I was afraid they were sold out forever!
I know this HAS to be somewhere in this thread, but can anyone comment on the size comparison between the Flyknit Trainers vs the Flyknit Lunar1+? I'm assuming the exact same, no?

Lunars are a little looser, but they fit the same for the most part. I'm a 10 across the board (Trainers, Lunars, Chukkas, Racers).

The first batch seems to get the most omplaint though I never had a problem with mine, to be fair it's more of a casual shoe for me, I've only ran in them once. The second and newer batches have cushioned backs now, so I think that helps some of the problem but if it is the material that is rubbing and causing problems, then I am not sure if the extra cushion will help.

If you plan to run in them, you have to decide which is best. The Lunars are more cushioned than the trainers but slightly heavier, if you prefer the least cushion in the sole area as possible and being light is a concern, then get the trainers or racers. There are still some bigger sizes of the red racers at NDC: http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/?l=shop,pdp,ctr-inline/cid-1/pid-688683/pgid-646501

The White/Carolina Blue colorway is the best of the bunch.  If I wanted these, where would I get 'em?

Thanks RFX45 for the heads up on the FK Trainers. Just ordered another pair in black(I already have a backup pair in my closet from Luke's Locker) and a pair in white. Now I'm unsure about getting the 010 FK Ones at the end of the month.

I don't know what people are talking about with ankle rub on FK Trainers. Granted I don't run in mine daily, but I've never had issues, even with low cut socks and I've worn my OG pair pretty hard since they came out last year. I usually wear them when I play street games like HvZ or capture the flag, and I even did Journey To The End of The Night(sort of a city wide game of tag) with them and never had a problem besides squeaking.

Also just got a 3M NSW Windrunner in the mail(same that TBS had last year). It's a small and still too big, so if anyone wants it for what I paid plus shipping($140), PM me and its yours.

I was complaining about that earlier. it's an issue with the FK lunar because of the padded collar (it chafes the Achilles area) but not on the normal FK trainer because those actually have no material to rub on the ankle. as I said I have other issues with cushioning and stability so I am going to give the Lunarspiders a try. supposedly they are the lightest Nike "stability" running shoe

eBay. Expect to pay $500+. I would wait for the grey/red pair to release as they should be easier to obtain.

FNL cancelled my order of fod/orange. ffffuuuu.gif


I heard people picking up the grey one up at Mercer 21 though and should come out on NDC sooner or later.

Also a heads up, Black Toes 1s comes out next week.
post #2338 of 8169
And a lot of rumored restocks.

If you're in Toronto, HOH is getting the black toes.

I'm so on the fence on those. AJ1's are without a doubt my favorite iteration of the Jordan line, but tri-color shoes look like clown shoes IMO.

Most Nikes/Jordans are tri color though. I remember you liking the royal Is and those are essentially tri-color too.

I really do love these pairs, if I still didn't have my old love Is Is insta-cop a pair of these.
