    I had mine shipped to the Low Country from RW...glad I did, when I'm in shoes, I'll be in these. I think the new Flyknit Frees will also be awesome as a lightweight travel/walker shoe.

    I've got a sizing question about the Flyknits and Roshe Run.

    I wear a size 11 in the Free 2 (I think that's the model), I've had them for 2 years and they're about the shit the bed so I'm looking for some new pairs. How do the Flyknits and Roshe Runs compare to the Frees for fit?

    I'm the same size in all of them. The flyknit trainers are a tad narrower than the free run 2s.

    +1 I haven't changed sizes between any of the models and they fit me great.

    The sole would still be white.

    Wait a minute.

    There is cardboard in jordans and foamposites?

    I like to train in the air max 2013.

    Use flynit trainers to walk in.

    My heel hurts regardless unless I'm wearing something with more rigid support like a boots.

    I'm actually weirdly excited by the idea. I love my frees (3.0 v.4), but my one complaint is how hot my feet sometimes get. Hopefully the flyknig shit will fix that.

    Also, wasn't "flyknit" technology supposed to remove the human element and make shoes more affordable or something? Doesn't that meant he new frees should be back down to like 50$?

    after they recover their initial investment or some shit but do you really think nike will lower prices with everyone copping the shit out of them?

    I doubt they'll be that cheap, given it's Nike afterall. I read an article a year or so back on Bloomberg that they were toying with the idea on bringing the labor back in USA since the process is a lot less labor demanding with these new materials. I'll believe it when I see it personally.

    Yeah, this was tongue-in-cheek. When's the last time you say a corporation cut prices?

    Exactly. Aside from futbol, Nike is the big man in charge and a lot of their stuff sell so well at retail as is. I think most of their non retro shoes are not leather based anymore. Like you stated it's a global firm with shareholders to please. Money is money when the smoke clears.

    Took some pictures of the Toro 4s that came in. Pics were taken around noon in an attempt to showcase the red in sunlight.

    Man I used to love ivs but they just look comical to me now that I'm older. So much better with nike air on the back though.

    I think also that anything over a size 10 in bulky nikes just looks bad which is unfortunate because I'm a 10.5-11 depending on the shoe. My friend in college wore a 9 or 9.5 and his nikes always looked better than mine.
