NIKE Thread - Page 43

post #631 of 7879

i think you should go to a nike store and try out all the different shoes out there. they're all made for different feet and activities.. i think even the strictly running shoes have about 7 different variations. I liked the look of the flyknits and pegasus best, but they recommended the lg+4's due to my stance and the way i walked. Not something i would have noticed walking around the shop, only after a month or so did i notice that i can walk and handle any activity for hours with no problems. maybe try out several pairs at a time for a week or so. nike usually encourages you test them out for runs, etc.

True, however for anyone in L.A. if you are real serious about running like Marathons and shit, go to Fleet Feet. They actually have you try on multiple shoes, watch you run, walk, etc and tell you which is best for you based on yoru stride.

This is where I got my Flyknits and the store really is perfect for those who takes running seriously. The staff will actually tend to you one-on-one and get you the right/perfect running shoe. They even bring you outside and let you walk/jog in them. It's a pretty cool service and the stores itself have 5Ks for the community.

It's not that I have such great, undying love for the brand, but in every blind (as blind as you can get) trial, I've ended up with an adidas shoe. I have a pretty good local running shop, as well as a good local soccer store (where I've been buying cleats from the same English expat for the better part of my life), so I've worn a lot of things on my feet, and have played in a fair number of things as well. One thing I haven't tried are any of the forefoot running shoes - I'd like to, but don't particularly feel like risking injury during break-in. Could be in my future, though.

I feel the Free Runs doesn't really need breaking in, it's very flexible off the box and the uppers is as soft and pliable as the FKs so you can perform in them right out of the box. I have no experience with cleats so I really have no idea how it feels and can't really say which Nikes would be a good alternative.

If I am being honest though, if I could only have one pair of Nikes at the moment, it'll be the Free Run 3's. I think I remember you said you tried them on when buying the Flyknits and didn't like them? Might have been the Free Havens but I am not sure. To me it's just the most versatile and comfortable for almost every activity. I can run, lift weights, do plyo/HIIT, hiking or just to walk around in and it still looks good when worn casually. I think the only thing I won't do with the Free Runs is play basketball in them but if the uppers were more stable with a very good lockdown feel, I'd certainly give it a few games on the court. As much as I love the Flyknits and how they feel, it just isn't as versatile. Give the Free Run 3 (and maybe even the Free Run 2) another chance when you visit the store.

size tts for nike gyak x uc jackets?
post #638 of 7879
No; I'd recommend sizing up one. I wear L in Nike shirts/jackets, sometimes even M, and my gyakusou is XL.
post #639 of 7879
Gyakusou runs small to ridiculously small, you can't even consider regular nike sizing because it's so fucked. You have to think normal sizing and size up one and even then the jackets may be too small.
post #640 of 7879
So basically: If I am an S in Nike, a ttts Medium, I need L in gyak?

fuck
