Horrible. They look like variants. I'm not really a fan of Cortezes in general though.

Was never a big fan of Cortez.


Nice 180s though, Knicks colorway? Hoping for another win tonight to stay in the playoffs?

For some reason I keep thinking Flintstones.

I thought they'd make killer beach shoes...Cortez's are under $100 right?
post #2405 of 8174
I regularly wear dress shoes I haven't worn any sneakers in forever. Besides when I know when my shoes would get ruined easily which I have a pair of new balance 420.
Which I admit is a bit too narrow for my wide feet so I been looking to replace them.

I think i'll try on a pair in person to get my fit then I'll buy online.

Thank you RFX45

I know this is the Nike thread, but if you want them for the beach get some NB 420, flip flops or Rivieras instead.

Rio colorway...hoping for a Knickerbocker win, but beating Indy at their barn isn't too likely...especially the way they've been playing.

Air Vortex/Montreal > NB420


For beach shoes, Rosherun seems good for it. How about the Lunar Presto? I find slip on shoes seems best for the beach? You can probably afford to get these wet too, not sure though.

Just rock sandals at the beach, man. Unless you're on some Killer Cam tip with the no sandals rule, lol.

Yeah, those are flowers on them. But it's Nike. They come up with all angles to release new colorways, a la black history pack, the natives, etc.

If you want them, they're still on nikestore.com along with all other shoes that launched this morning.

Saw that, not the turquoise color way though. I hate sandals, as a runner, hockey player and soccer player my feet are nasty, real nasty. Do they have other colorways online?

Three colorways for the Prestos ATM: http://www.shopnicekicks.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=lunar+presto&x=-684&y=-54

Look into Solarsoft Raches or Moccasins for the beach as well: http://www.shopnicekicks.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=solarsoft

Trainers are more cushion than Racers so it'll be better for walking comfort, LunarOne+ also has better cushioning too.

Mine is holding up well, but I do have plenty of shoes on rotation but these are meant for running so I think occasional walking won't wear it out too fast.


As for waiting for it to go on sale, it's risky and I am not sure many sizes will get there. It isn't selling out as quick as it did before though so some might go on sale but it is no guarantee. Really up to you if you can drop $150 for some Nikes now.

 

I was going to come in and talk about this very topic. I have been in New York for 4 days now. I have been walking all around this city in my Flyknits. They have been stepped on, caught on curves, and taken a pretty good beating these last 4 days. I am 6' 3" with a long and very fast stride. SO, my feet and knees take a beating. I am a disabled vet due to the damage done to my knees while I was serving. My job requires me to walk alot and I normally don't make it pass the first couples hours before my knee begins to hurt. I have gone three days without severe pain I normally experience at work. These shoes are great for walking. Not sure how they would fair with running though.
