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.

    damn it, got two small spots of what i'm assuming is mustard (?) on my white fk trainers! :(

    didn't even notice it until i got home and took them off (they're right under the swoosh)



    today was only the second time i've ever worn them, le sigh... :confused:


    i wear them as a causal shoe, too, so i was hoping to keep them as pristine and clean as possible

    dam I was about to buy some flyknits but ill be using them as beaters.

    can anyone else comment on how dirty they get? obviously they will be beaters but certain shoes only get so dirty whereas something like canvas vans can turn white to orange/brown.

    They pick up dirt pretty easy, but like Golf said, just throw them in the wash (in a pillowcase on delicate). Works great.

    Flyknits for the fall in Seattle is akin to putting summer tires on your Ferrari for winter in Utah.

    Yeah, I believe the Nike App on the iPhone (also available on Android now iirc) is free and you can use it with any other shoe really. I like the GPS watch because it comes with a shoe pod sensor so when I lose reception it continues tracking my run. I can also connect the watch to a heart rate monitor if I wanted to. There have also been morning where the GPS could not lock in a signal so I had to rely recording my whole run via shoe pod. I have heard others having the same problem with the Iphone App and they are stuck running w/o it, can't really complain much since its free now. I believe the Ipod Nano has a pedometer built in that can connect with NikePlus too, not sure if it had to be connected to the Nike shoe pod though but since it's free now, it's hard to complain about it.

    It can be so frustrating living in Canada when it comes to online shopping... Nike doesn't have an online store for us (don't know why...) so I can either pay resell value on ebay, plus shipping and duties (~$250), or I can use a reshipping service which would end up to be ~$200 and pray I don't get hit with duty (already know I will).

    meanwhile in the US... $150 off nike.com with free shipping. :censored:

    so I guess in other words im not gonna cop those fucking flyknits...

    Just received my Flyknit Trainer+ shoes and threw them on. I went TTS US 10 and they feel pretty tight, big toe pokes out a bit at the side but doesn't go all the way to the top by maybe 1/4". How much do these stretch? Are they supposed to fit pretty tight right out of the box?

    If they don't fit out of the box, I wouldn't keep them.
