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.

    Those are all great (esp magistas).
    Decided all I'm buying from Nike from now on is mercs and magistas.

    I low-balled a guy on eBay for a brand new black pair and they arrived today. You were right these shoes are incredibly flawed on a fundamental design level. They are not wearable out of the box; both the insole and the sock liner are particularly bad but the rest of the shoe is abysmal in material quality as well. They'd have to be the worst sneaker I've ever owned, and that includes a $7 pair of Kmart runners which actually have more grip, better breathability and comfort than these. Luckily my LunarEpics came with a spare 4mm insole and they fit inside perfectly, making them bearable to wear with the sock liner in. They look nice, the stitching and construction seems good (I had a pair of Huaraches that were much worse put together than these) and the strap system makes them quick to take on and off (though not as quick as FlyKnits), but they are bottom of the barrel in pretty much every other regard. Anyone else thinking of picking these up, I'd avoid even for $50. They really are that bad.

    :lol:

    I don't feel as strongly about the carnivores but I do think I would feel ripped off if I paid the $200 retail.

    I am not sure how Nike tested the shoes and who even bothered to try to them on because it does feel like you needed to size up by like 3 to wear them comfortably as intended.

    It'll work as a good summer shoes without the sockliner and just black socks.

    I have a feeling you'd pull it off really well though as an athletechninja @Rais.

    Thanks rais, I couldn't find anything when i reverse imaged. Too lazy to translate but seems it's on the shorter side per the specs.

    No problem. I'd worry that it might be like other Japanese brands I've tried and have an A-Line cut, which is not very flattering on those with an athletic body type.

    Anyone have a Nike Hyper Shield Light jacket? There are a few on sale at a Nike store near me, but still pretty expensive for a packable windbreaker. It is so thin and light I am dubious about its claims of being waterproof.

    It's interesting you mention that because that's exactly what crossed my mind as well when I saw the pic. I really despise that cut since my back tapers a lot.
