    My trainers are a size 10 and I have wide feet but they fit well. FWIW I'm usually a 9.5 in Jordans and a 10.5 in most Nikes.

    Choked I missed out on the Volts in my size but whatever.

    That is a big size discrepancy between Nikes and Jordans. I wear practically the same size in both, usually 9.5-10 depending on the model and how I want the shoe to fit.

    Just for reference, I'm a 10 in Free Runs, tried the 9.5s and they are too tight. I'm a 9.5 in Lunarglide3s but a size 10 in Lunarglide4s.

    My safe Nike/Jordan size is usually 10, those rarely fit too big. If it feels like there is too much room, I just wear thicker socks though that would defeat the purpose with the flyknits. We shall see.

    Well...how about this. My Wovens and my HOA AM90's are a size 11. Wovens are a bit big, but the AM90's fit perfect. My Chicago X's and Olympic VI's are a size 9 and they fit fine. I try and buy my Jordans as small as possible given that they are really bulky.

    Regardless, it's common knowledge to size down on Jordans.

    I never size down on Jordans, 9.5 is the smallest I'd wear and those are just about perfect but even too small at times. My AJI old loves are size 9.5 and they are really small, my toe hits the end and I have to wear thinner socks. My AJ IVs are 9.5 and they are just about perfect. I have a size 9.5 Space Jams from '01 and it is a bit tight. I have an OG XI concords from '96 in size 10 and it is perfect, I also have the blk/red XI and concords from '00 and the XIs from the DMP all in size 10s and they are all just about perfect. All my retro III, V, VI, VII, X, XIII, XIV, etc... all between 9.5-10 and all fit just fine if not perfectly.

    I wear a 9.5 in Dunks almost perfectly, in both general release and ID. A 10 in Kobe IVs and Vs fits me well too. I also wear a 10 in Lebron IIs BDay edition and Lebron IV. 10 in FR2 and FR3, 10 in Pegasus (but could fit in a 9.5 if need be). 10 in Hyperdunks and Pennys, etc...

    My Nike & Jordan sizing is pretty consistent for me.

    Looking around at pics of the flyknit I ordered and I think it is the best colorway of the bunch. I can't wait to get my pair.

    I'm less sure about the volt racers but for running I think it'll be fine.

    trainer looks far better than the racer, if these don't look huge in a 10.5 i might cop some if i can find them for cheaper than retail

    rfx that's the best of the bunch, i would get the burgundy ones posted awhile back or those

    I've been thinking about getting a pair of Free Run 3+s besides the white on black what other interesting colors are there? Or am I stuck going with NikeID? I really wanted these, but am not feeling the $180-200 prices I'm seeing on eBay.

    I am not really sure what colorway you are looking for, something crazy or something less "loud" and more suited for casual wear. I'd recommend one of the NSW versions with the leather uppers. If you want anything more crazy, NikeID is a good option you can play around with.




    For something a bit different in the Free line, you can check out the powerlines?

    You know what, I am surprised it isn't selling out quicker, it seems like people are only interested in the volt colorway. So if there is a chance they might eventually go on sale? It's a longshot but it might just be possible. With the 15% off code, it pretty much negates the tax, shipping and a few bucks, better than nothing. I got $45 off the trainers and racers.

    I wouldn't mind having the Gyakusou Lunarspeeds. The FW12 season will have a Free 4.0 so that should work for your workouts better than the past seasons Lunarspider/Lunarspeed/Zoom Elites which are strictly running shoes.

    Got these in yesterday.

    rfx, looks like I picked up the lunarglide 4 in the same color as you.

    [​IMG]

    I really dig them, so much softer than my free 2.0's, should help lots for long runs I hope. I also tried the pegasus 28 (which is super ugly, and I didn't find they felt alot different) and the zoom streak 4 (which looks really cool and has a super cushy heel, but the toe isn't soft enough for me, and they honestly feel really cheaply made). I was hoping for a cooler colorway, but I'm not too bothered since I got them 40% off.

    way lighter than they look too. maybe lighter than my free 2.0's but its hard to tell since my frees still have a lot of sand stuck in them. at least I know they can survive many machine washes.

    Just picked up my first Free 3's the other day and put a few miles on them. I'm not a runner in the least bit, but I'm used to bouncing on my forefoot from boxing so these were a breeze to run in. I'm actually surprised how cushioned they are.

    Yup, we got the exact same pair.
    [​IMG]



    The Pegasus 29 looks much better than the 28 though and I like it that it comes in wide width. I think the Frees are still probably lighter than LG4s but the LG4s is still under 10oz so that is a very light pair of shoes that provides as much cushion as it does.

    those first two look awesome. what is the top made of? It looks like wool which I imagine would be a terrible idea for running shoes.
