    Anybody know if it's still possible to get the default white midsole/black upper Free +2 anywhere? The only place I can see to get a pair is to make them custom from the Nike ID page, but they don't ship to Canada, so that's out for me (I can't even ship to a proxy with a Canadian credit card).

    I just had a nightmare of a customer service experience at Nike. Purchased a pair of Flyknits online on sale for 100 dollars in blue. They came out much lighter than I expected so I went down to the Flat Iron store in NYC to get it exchanged for a different color. The guy helping me said there should be no extra charge, so I'm like cool. Get to the cashier, she sees how much I was charged and decides to charge me full price, claiming they were a different model. I thought in my head, oh, that's reasonable, but I really like these, so I'll pay the extra 70 dollars. Get home and check my online order and I see that it's the same exact model! I'm pretty pissed at this point. Few days later, I go to the 57th St location and they give me the run around, stating I have to go down to the store down in Flat Iron to get the refund of 70.00 dollars or so. I ask for a full refund, and they say they can't process it, and reiterate I have to go down to Flat Iron. I call Nike's corporate CS number and they tell me they can't do anything about it, and that I should be refunded the 2nd amount charged.

    How fragmented is Nike, and how cut throat is their quota that no one wants to assume responsibility of this? Guess I have to burn some more time in my life.

    Why couldn't you go back to the Flat Iron store?

    Nike is going to bankrupt me. Those Chukkas are fantastic.

    So do you guys wear socks with the flyknit lunars? I just got a pair and love them but even all my small ankle socks stick out above the top. Dumb question... But I had to ask.

    Also how much room do you typically leave in the toe box? Right now my big toe is little less than a thumb away from the top but my other toes are pretty much right even with the top side. I don't know if I should size down for the big toe bc my other toes would probably be too tight unless these stretch a good bit

    I wear black no-show socks so they match the interior lining of mine. otherwise some days I do go sockless. unless I wear them to the gym then i throw on some crew socks.

    If your toes are comfortable you should be fine. don't size down if your small toes are already at the edge. if anything i'd say size up then.

    I go no socks with mine, the shoes are really comfortable and breathable. It's nice to feel the breeze with your toes.

    I was told size down half for no socks, tts for with socks when I purchased my Flyknit trainer so I guess no sock is definitely an option.

    Hey guys, quick question.

    Does anyone know where I could get Volt Flyknit Trainers or Racers at retail or close to retail? Thanks in advance. :)

    I actually ran a 5k on the beach in a pair of Chicago Lunarglide+ 3s

    They ended up full of sand, as one would expect.

    I threw them in the washing machine and they're as good as new, with no sand!

    I really hate going sockless, my feet just feels sweaty and sticky after a few minutes, I can't stand it.
