    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.

    Yeah same here, after much debate I ended up snagging a pair of the Grey Free's. Have way too many blue sneakers and couldn't justify getting the green ones, can't wait for those fuckers to get here already.

    Got my Gyakosou shorts in Small & Medium. At 5'10" 155, they honestly both fit me pretty well. I guess the small is a little tight in the waist - but they are stretch to begin with. Both measurements work on me.

    I got each in a different colorway so I'm thinking of just keeping both. I'm surprised there isn't more of a difference in measurements on these, for me.

    Gyakusou shorts are fire but what do folks wear under your running shorts. All previous 10 or so running shorts i have owned have had either a mesh like underpants built in or elasticized kinda leggings. Gyakusou does't and i don't really wanna freeball/wear normal underwear due to chafe

    I always have compression shorts underneath when running or working out or playing ball.

    I like CW-X compression under my running shorts that do not have a lining...

    I've seen that CW-X brand on Eastbay catalogs I receive (yes I still get them and look through them once in a while) and are they any better than UA? The only compression clothes I have are UA and Nike and never really found a reason to change.

    I do want to try Adidas' TechFit recovery compression clothes, suppose to help with minimizing soreness to muscles, not sure how effective it really is though.



    Like!

    If you want to stand out more, get some FlyKnits. If you want to be less conspicuous, get those Frees.

    I know that NIKE sizing advice is everywhere in this thread, but I couldn't find this question answered anywhere: does anyone know how the Frees fit compared to the Pegasus +28? Only NIKE shoes I've ever owned are my current running shoes, but really like the look of those Frees.

    For my golfing friends out there, just picked up these Lunar Swingtip Leather brogues. Real comfy, going to use them on the links this Friday

    While I probably won't be ordering any Edward Green golf shoes anytime soon, I still can't get into all the sneakerish golf shoes.

    I do like those, as well as some of Rickie Fowlers Puma kicks. But I think the street shoes that are done well, and are subtle look the best. Some of those TW shoes can get a bit too technical, and like someone else said above, other shoes are just too plain and old man-ish.

    I don't play golf yet but when I do I will be wearing silly vests and cardigans with a poofy flat cap/ball on top, knickers and brogued golf shoes.
