    probably a specialty running store? historically, nike runners haven't been up to par with those at similar pricepoints from other brands

    Any of you guys run/train in the swift tights? I think I would look ridiculous in them but I am really struggling with muscle endurance after ramping up my HIIT...thinking that the full leg compression might help out some

    What's your experience?

    The nike swift tights aren't full out compression tights like 2xu etc. I have a pair of 2xu tights and the difference compared to running in normal running gear is neglible, might have reduced soreness a tiny bit

    Grabbed the lunar one+ FK's from Finish Line - steep price but they are dope. Got the black color way. Those grey ones pictures have the black contrast accent, but are only available in women's sizes. Anyway, FL had all color ways. I might change the flat laces however.

    Also, FYI - I'm a 10 in these and a 9.5 in FK trainers. These fit like Free's.

    I am assuming drunk. He never stopped. I was left there laying on railroad tracks. Ironic part is that I was in Houston Medical center. So I was litterally 100ft from several ERs. Blessed that I could get back on and ride home just as it started to rain cats and dogs.

    Damn that's terrible.

    PS. My gym gloves look 1000x worse than that don't sweat those.

    I don't know who's dumb enough to pay 160 for those.

    Thanks for the feedback btw...sounds like it's not really worth it. I live in FL so don't need tights for warmth either

    Anyone know about sizing on flyknit trainers? Roadrunner sports says go up 1/2 size but I seem to also be seeing some people saying size down 1/2 size. I wear a 12 in air max 1s and 11 1/2 in new balances. dunno what size to get flyknits in.

    The sole on the Flyknits I find are really hard compared to Nike's other shoes like the Free runs. I was gonna cop a pair when I was in Japan but was just not feeling them.
