    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I understand barefoot for form reasons but barechested at the gym is just douchebag, and honestly not the most sanitary. Who the fuck wants ALL of everyones sweat all over the machines...at least one layer catches some of that...and you know NO ONE wipes down...I hate people with poor gym etiquette.

    It's a fighting / cf gym, so there's very few machines.

    That's as equally as bad. During a sparring match, a guy went for a kick across the head, the opponent ducked back and the dude's foot missed and slashed his chest instead. Apparently, the guy's toe nails were fury and long and scratched the opponent's chest. Though chances of exposure are low, it's plain out gross.

    Wearing just a t shirt definitely weighs you down when you're doing heavy training because you sweat so much and to top it off, the others around you are sweating as hard so the whole place is a heater.

    I wipe down prior and after I leave a station. Can't leave it up to chance, man. And no a quick wipe with a towel doesn't count :foo:

    I'm more against bare feet than no t-shirt, as people have nasty ass feet.

    I don't understand why guys are going batshit crazy over the racers and the lunar 1s are readily obtainable.

    Anyone know where to find the trainers this colorway for retail, or am I fuck outta luck? Nike restocked a few sizes a bit ago but it's all 12+ or 8-.

    I have been wearing those Racer's like crazy for the last couple weeks, haven't had that many compliments on some sneakers in a while. They are really nice in person, pictures don't do them justice.

    And it's not limited to the teenagers as well which is saddening. My gym provides towels and the locker room is filled with them. Like its too hard to toss them in the bin???


    I went to try on the Fly Knits today. The last is a lot narrower than the Free. It felt weird. Sizing up 1 size felt a bit tight but 1.5 felt too loose.

    I would recommend Roots sweatpants. They last so much longer than all of the other sweatpants I own, not that I typically use them outside of the home, but they're aesthetically pleasing enough to walk the dog with them and run into a coffee shop, etc. They also seem to be the only sweatpants I own that are long enough for me, and are extremely comfortable.

    Mah Fuckers be ignorant. That or step up your gym game to overpriced Equinox, and towels are FREE. That and they have lovely chilled eucalyptus towels.

    Oddly enough, my local footlocker put out the flyknit frees for sale. I checked them out this weekend. Nice, but i'm not so sure I want to pay $160 for a Free. They run super tight and are clearly designed to be worn sockless. I had to size up a whole size and those fit snug. They put out both the volt and red/blacks.

    Not about shoes but I got a bunch of the new knit workout shirts. Best shirts I've handled for training, no regrets
