Yea must be. You can see on the heel that the sole wasn't made for the upper.

Had the oreo racers since the came out, never worn them and just decided that I'm gonna get rid. It's the black stripe down the back I can't live with, they look so so shit from the back. Not a patch on the og trainers.

Funnily enough I've had the same conversation with a lot of my flyknit wearing buddies and I was of the same opinion as you until someone pointed out, it would look like a slipper without it. And you know what? I think they are right! I've now grown to love the black stripe down the back and think it looks soooooooo streamline and more defined as a trainer (which of course it is).

Been wearing my oreo racers a bit lately, but just keep finding myself going back to these.

It's not so obvious until you put them on, I put them on with a pair of jeans the other day, looked at myself in the mirror and decided to take them off cause they looked so shit. Look crap with shorts too.


shame because side and front is all win

I think wearing flyknits has broken my left foot. I can't walk properly for 3 days in any other shoes on my left foot.

I'm over the hype. They were great for summer but like bill said I think they look crap with trousers and most shorts. Gonna stick with my £50 nike tennis…

People need cuffed joggers or chinos to get wear out of them in the colder months. Perfect for flyknits showing.
