1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    This was a given, haha.

    Yeah, the form fitting stuff is back, ie 'running pants' or 'soccer pants'. No more loose gear from the 90s.

    Thanks, man. That's a lot of bread for workout gear for me. Looks like I'm skipping.

    According to the ny times article, it'll be $80 for the pants, $85 for the sweatshirt, and $175 for the zip up.

    Also, rather than straight up cotton, the fabric will be a foam core sandwiched by cotton jersey. Weird. Reminds me of ye olde skool stretchy ski pants. I'm guessing more wind resistant than a regular sweatshirt, but pretty much useless for anything more demanding than carrying groceries. The logos are either tiresome or classic, depending on where you stand.

    Wore my flyknit racers for the first time running today...and now my feet are torn up because i didn't wear socks...at one point about half way through my 4.5 mile run (which admittedly my speed was up on) I had to remove the shoe to get what I thought was a rock out...nope, just a huge chunk of skin that peeled off. Back to Newtons for the forseeable future.

    The dude at Niketown heavily advised me from running them barefooted. The material was super thin. I didn't buy tho.

    I have a new pair of Newtons coming this weekend, though if I run tomorrow, it'll be in thick socks.

    For working out I use the white tube socks from Costco. I think the brand is Penn. Way more comfy than any other socks I've used.

    Did 7.5 today...wore socks and wrapped my feet in gauze (they're blistered pretty bad) but it was a decent run...so here's to hoping these work out. They're light as all hell, which is not something I'm used to.

    The "Fear" pack Jordan 3, 4, and 5 were in full effect this weekend.

    Niketowns stopped the RSVP process via Twitter since most were getting dominated by scripts or bots and went back to good ol' first come first serve. Niketown LA said they weren't going to allow overnight camping out. So much for that, haha. Word is dudes arrived at about 7PM or so the night prior, and eventually all patrons were patted down by Bev Hills PD to ensure they had no weapons.


    I hope the Fire Red 5s next week is super mass produced and can be easily copped because I want a pair, and I'm too old to line up for kicks.

    The whole series is garbage IMO. If they were released 10 years ago, they would sit around, just like the Olive IXs. They only sold out instantly because of the QS label. You can buy at the resale price if you really want them. Getting them online was doable though manually though from what I've read. I didn't want them so I didn't even tried.

    Can anyone proxy a pair of flyknit trainers from the USA to canada? I'd be willing to pay some extra money on top of shipping costs
