    I don't think Nike will go back to having a one-piece upper/full inner-sleeve sock-like fit, at least not on the Free Runs. I just haven't seen in the previews or upcoming shoes, even from their traditional free line (3.0, 5.0, 7.0, etc...).
    Free Sock Racer might be your best bet?

    Posted but here's the upcoming colorways for the FR4.

    Free Huarache Free Light for 2013 might be a good option too if you like the style, it looks a bit high but Huarachers tends to look taller than it really is anyways.

    Gyakusou shoes are harder to find but some stores are having restocks so you might get lucky. I just haven't been paying attention so I don't notice it. Aloharag has 20% off their leftover Gyakusou stuff though. I think TBS has a 10.5 of the blue Lunarspeeds if you can squeeze into it.

    I figure that is the one you are saying that you are wearing now, right? But yeah if you like the sock-like construction, buy as much old stock of the FR2 as possible. Or go custom on NikeID.

    The FR2 wovens are nice, if you can find them.

    I justhavent seen it in any of the future products outside of maybe huaraches. Plus they seem to be moving away from it and moving on to new tech/uppers. I would assume they would try it with the knit upper buti dont think it is flexible enough to stretch and mold to your foot. We'd have to wait and see but i havent seen any indication they would go back to it anytime soon, not for 2013 at least.

    Assuming you're talking about my used Flyknits, they're listed at $140 bro (the brand new ones are $170).

    With paypal fees and tax, I'm not making any money. Not to mention when I get offers on them they will of course be asking for a discount.

    Nothing against you and not to stir things up but if they are used, then yeah you shouldn't be making money. Actually you shouldn't even get what you paid for them but if someone pays that much then good for you. Can't hate the hustle, I guess.

    TBS has a bunch of Nikes on sale including some Gyakusou. FKs are down to retail but after VAT off it should be cheaper than retail.

    God I wish Nike would stop bastardizing the Infrared AM90.

    Ehhh I wouldn't say this is shoe much of Bastardizing, since it is an entirely new model. The AM90 with the yellowish-vintage looking sole is a bastardization of the shoe, but to me this is entirely different, just happens to be infrared.

    It's the same shoe with different mesh. Not sure how that qualifies as a new model, but the shoe with a yellowed midsole doesn't.

    Either way, nothing beats this:

    where's the cheapest place to buy lunarglide 4s online in a 12 or 11.5 (probably 12)? don't care so much about colorways.
