Like I say to everyone mate, and what I normally do, is get a PULSE code off ebay for a fiver, if you are getting trainers or a big order, the saving always outweighs paying for it.

i'm sure it's been asked a million times before but i couldn't find a definitive answer with a google.

does flyknit stretch with wear?

bought the epic reacts and they're quite tight over the top of the foot but everywhere else is perfect. nice shoe tbh

Flyknit stretches yes. I’ve heard the Epic Reacts do start off tight at the top like you say and do stretch out a bit.

What do you think of the sole?

They stretch slightly, I'm just wearing in my Vapors - extremely tight at times.

I bought an 8 in racers instead of my usual 8.5 as they always seemed roomy, I couldn’t wear them too narrow at the end.

potentially a bit less bouncy than boost. i think they might take some wear to break in to really get the most comfortable wear. still great though.

think it's perfect if you don't wear adidas and you want that boost knitted runner experience. (personally don't wear adidas as I wear a lot of nike clothes and i don't like the clash #milspexbrandharmony)

The Flyknit on the Reacts is a bit stiffer than ULTRABOOSTS.

I decided to pass on the vaporstreet, it’ll definitely be a shoe I cop in the future I just didn’t want another triple black shoe

Feeling the reacts, look good there. Will definitely get a pair for summer.

Will try my luck with the racers on tuesday, but already know how that will end up…

I’m not sure whether I will keep them yet, it’s a toss up between the all black Trainers and these, which ever’s most comfortable for summer. Really wanted to try them on atleast and see how they felt.

I think there will be plenty available Anto, the whites were an easy cop and the all blacks today are still in stock now so hopefully they’ve made enough for demand. Good luck man.

How does sizing with adidas stack up with clarks/new balance? i am usually an 11, maybe an 11.5.
