    The Free Run have Flywire, the Trainer has that Chinese finger trap design upper. I think the sole designs are different too.

    thanks for the help, guys


    are both shoes just as snug as the other (as in the lunarglide and the trainer, not left and right feet lol)?

    I don't have the Lunarglides anymore and can't remember, but the difference is negligible. Maybe the Flyknit Trainers are very slightly tighter, if at all.

    dont know about lunarglides, but i have flyknit trainers and the flyknit lunar things, both in the same size, and the latter feel more snug in the toes.

    Not sure if anyone is still looking/interested in the Nike x Undercover Gyakusou Thermore but I found 2 in my local Marshall's for great prices. Also picked up the Nike Chambray Firefly jacket as well.

    Anyone have recommendations for cold-weather running gear? This is my first year living in a cooler climate, and temps dropped into the 40s this week. Options:

    Explore

    [​IMG]
    Vapor

    [​IMG]
    Cyclone

    There's also this, but it's $500:

    Allover Flash

    There are a couple of Gyakusou jackets on clearance, but I'm not crazy about any of them and don't want to wait for the new stuff.

    Will probably get a few long sleeve Dri-Fit knits for a base layer, maybe a few half-zips. Not sure about bottoms—I have tights, but they're on the short side, and bare ankles may be a deal breaker when the temp drops.

    Gym membership and a treadmill? Better yet, move back to a milder climate. Or, even better yet, lift weights and have some discipline with your diet, and cardio becomes unnecessary.

    Uniqlo heattech and run faster, so you don't get cold.

    I run because I enjoy it, especially outdoors—I'm not looking to avoid it. But yeah, I may end up on an indoor track or something.



    I'd rather stick with Nike since all my other gear is Nike and I'm OCD like that, but I'll look into Heattech too. Thanks.

    I think he was joking about not running..

    About Flash jacket, I had the previous iteration, the Vapor Flash that was also like $500 couple years ago (http://insider.nike.com/us/launch/vapor-flash-running-jacket/). Do NOT buy it if the price tag seems remotely expensive which I feel like most of us feel this way.
    The reflective coating wears out really fast, like in a few weeks, and even a mild hand wash took off outer layer of coating. Not to mention it is highly noticeable when this happens as you will see dark spots when a light is shone on the jacket (because such spot won't reflect anymore).
    If money isn't your concern, it is very unique and cool jacket. But it's not a performance jacket as Nike wants you to think. With that money you can get like 2 full sets of cold running gear (yes from Nike).
    Last thing to consider, mine had no perforations IIRC and was warm enough to wear from 0f to 50f. Anywhere above was too hot. With this year's iteration it might actually be the other way around, it being too well ventilated.

    Get some Half-zips, wool / knit crews and tights. No need to pick the most expensive ones. I think the Elements and Spheres are water resistant too so there's that.

    chet, i wouldn't drop 500 on anything nike but like ceo said get some element or sphere stuff, you don't need a lot to stay warm since you'll get warm by running but a nice base and jacket over

    it's too bad they don't make the jacket i got last year it's quite good and warm, forget the name of it i posted a screenshot i think a long time ago
