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.

    they did that to me too in my last couple of orders. well, it showed three separate groups of items coming from different places, but they all arrived at the same time in one box. it was weird.

    They are known to do that. Some items are available before others are.

    I passed after seeing the quality was not there. These were last 1's I bought and the quality is up to par. Love Dave White's art.

    I've seen a lot of complaints on the heel causing blisters or being too tight for the flyknits, has anyone here had that problem?

    No problem here either, I think the only people who complains about the blisters wears lowcut/no-show socks or just go with no socks at all.

    Wore my Trainers for the first time in NYC and after 4 hours I had to put bandages on both of my heels. They're fine now, however.

    no issues for me either. i thought it wasn't padded enough but the sole does a great job despite being pretty thin. i never run more than 5 miles or 30-minute sprint intervals, though. maybe the marathoners are the ones complaining.

    I think is for folks that buy them to actually run it. IMO, Nike running is subpar, compared to other brands. Like most their products their consumer products, their retail stuff is not the same as the stuff pro athletes wear. Nike running stuff is more for the not so serious runner. I am a Nike fan, but while in the Navy we ran 10 miles 3 days a week and I could not do it in Nikes. New Balance were my shoes. Nike running is only good for casual use or casual exercising.
    Nike Basketball is where they shine.

    Nike has really made a huge stride on improving their running shoes (no pun intended). I used to run in NB too but switching to Nike starting with the FR2, then the Pegasus28 then the Lunarglide3 then to the FR3 to LG4 to Pegasus29 to FK and these shoes were just so much better than the NBs I ran in. Nike has been notorious for having crappy running shoes but more and more are being more open to actually trying them out and plenty of experienced runners are also surprised at how much improvement Nike has made. Are they the top dog in the running shoe game? No. Are they closing the gap? Most definitely.

    Not to mention Nikes running shoes actually look good, really hard to get with the designs Asics, Brooks, Mizuno, etc... comes out with.
