    I've got a blister, which I have never had from sneakers before.
    These are literally more painful at my heel than brand new dress shoes

    Wtf. oh well

    Its not rubbing. Its actual pressure. Doesnt matter if i go no socks, or super thick socks.

    Sounds like no one else has experienced it. Carry on then, thanks :)

    I've read about people with that heel issue but it was only for the first release of the trainers. The updated pairs with more padding around the ankles, people didn't have a problem with.

    I was amazed at how uncomfortable the trainers were. I purchased both the multicolor racers and trainers over the summer when they restocked on NDC. The trainers felt like standing on a brick and they looked like throw up. Returned those to my local Nike Running store with the quickness.

    What socks do you guys usually rock with Racers? Picked up a Cheetos flyknit in the clearance for dirt cheap.. looking for some awesome low socks.

    won't help but i prefer loafer socks (don't like wearing shoes barefoot; i don't actually wear flyknits for running fwiw)

    low profile running shoes like racers, trainers, etc. only look good with either high socks or no socks showing at all imo

    -


    on a related note my own racers in blk/wht came in today

    glad i didn't size up like a lot of people seemed to have to do as they're pretty TTS for me


    i lined them up with my trainers and lunar1+ and they're definitely a shorter shoe, but the supposed narrowness that these have didn't bother me at all

    i wear an 8.5 in all three of the shoes

    same, and I've been bitching about it on this thread before. are you talking about the lunar 1's? they're the worst, ironically because of the more padded collar that causes more friction on my Achilles. the trainer v1 is tolerable.

    IME they take a week of wear to loosen the weave. i hated them at first and now they are as comfortable as can be.

    Nope. Not feeling that at all.
    I feel like the reason the FK's are so dope is because of the potential of the colours to intermingle and make some really dope results, those things just look like any other sneaker.
