    They are a lifestyle shoe now. I dont think they have been a performace shoe since the first model.

    They were and are definitely advertised as a performance shoe, the Max Air tech was just too big or "revolutionary" to be put into it to be a lifestyle shoe. When it first came out, there likely wasn't even a lifestyle shoe yet within Nike.

    If you go to NDC, it is placed right there with the neutral ride shoes for running and even their ad says it all:

    I'm the same size as you, I went with a M. Depends on what type of fit you want I guess.

    Medium

    The medium definitely fits you better. ^


    I wonder how long before they start doing glow in the dark sole on running shoes and jackets with large 3M reflective panels. It came to mind with the "run the night" theme many Niketowns are holding for the local residents.

    Wish I would have check this thread yesterday before ordering a Large yesterday as I'm about the same size as you. If anyone has these in medium and wants to trade for large, let me know.

    That's mad bread for a Nike jacket. Most I'd spend would be around $100 since I wear them to run in.

    I know 3M have been used in shoes for a long time now, but I'm talking about glow in the dark option recently used in some shoes in the last couple of years, and available as an option on Nike ID.

    Something like this:

    Being the marketing monster that they are, I can see them having local runners wear them at one of the many Niketowns' run nights and use that for a campaign. I might even cop a pair to run outdoors at night myself.

    I have one of these, got it for $80 on clearance at a Nike Town. Problem is the finish is already getting some blemishes with minimal wear (under 15 wears out). Looks awesome though, especially at dusk. It's a bit insane at night because it glows like a light bulb with the slightest reflection of light.
