1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    Thanks. I'll probably go for the obsidian, did you take the same size as the regular TF?

    I did, but its weird.. I feel like I could size down in the waist but definitely the thigh area will be very tight.

    Those Huarache Carnivores are all over eBay and Nike outlets at a good discount. Were they a bad shoe or was the design just too much for mainstream consumers?

    The navy versions hit the outlets for about $40-$45 a week or two before it released on NikeLab. Really not sure what the difference is but overall the design wasn't thought all the way through. It has a separate sockliner but it makes the shoes too tight and impossible to put on if you use it with the insole. It's still tight even if you remove the insole, not only that but you also lose some cushioning and comfort.

    Second option is to wear it without the sockliner and it'll almost be like wearing sandals, which is good for the summer I guess but I am not even entirely sure they were meant to be worn like that but it seems to be the only way to wear it comfortably. It's a good looking shoes especially with the sockliner on but it should have been executed well.


    That's my two cents on why it might be sitting, well along with it coming out in outlets at ~75% discount before it came out.

    The ACG jacket looks a bit better than the 2 in 1 version. No logos across the chest and seems to fit longer.

    @Rais, those Bonded Pants look great. Do you think they can be worn during the summer?

    Thanks. It was 27C here on that day and I was comfortable. Not sure how hot it gets where you are. The material is quite thin and breathable for a poly-blend.

    @Rais, you pull of Nike pants well, most tends to look baggy or the thighs too baggy with diaper effect and the calves too tight.

    What headphones do you have on?

    And those KD8 Elites look good :slayer: waiting for them to hit the outlets though.

    New KD9s looks promising.

    You guys who got carnivores, did you size up from flyknit? Wondering if sizing up might fit some of the fit issues?

    I went TTS on my pair. As RFX mentioned, I believe it is a design flaw. Having both the leather insert as well as the inner sock makes for "too much" in the shoe and the insert does not even fit (footbed of the insert extends past the end of the sock footbed) when placing it into the sock and not into the shoe.

    I doubt sizing up will make a difference when trying to wear both the leather insert and the sock insert in the shoe. It fits fine with just one or the other placed into the shoe.
