    I don't like they are shipping that way. It's pretty much a clear take away what it's being shipped. Adidas is the worst IMO. They pretty much put the model# and order# on the shipping label.

    Some folks have already lost packages b/c of this.

    I got some stuff i have send back to Nike, best believe i'm either turning the box inside out or putting it in a new one. Not sure what Nike was thinking with that.

    Discreet box is where it's at.

    @MrKDes I never thought turning the box inside out. I'll do that next time. Good idea.

    Yea, it's something I always did when I reused boxes that had writing/labels all over them.

    LOL, I remember those days. USPS was like we aint letting these folks come up off our boxes!

    Imagine if Nike slapped an array of swooshes inside the box or "Just Do It" everywhere

    they're too cheap to do that, i am actually surprised they spend extra $$$ for the logo on the boxes and tape but they probably see it as advertising :lol:

    Bad advertising in my opinion, swoosh branded shipping boxes have to be a porch bandit’s dream come true. :smh:

    I think I’ve only put 40 miles on these.

    All outdoor runs.

    My first workout in my flyknit 4% the outsole was deteriorating in the same spot. Ironically same exact spot in both pairs of my OG 4%. The wear seems to be much quicker on these.

    I resisted the first color to have this new one and am stoked. Got the confirmation and will have it here on Monday. Just in time for next week's half. :tongue:

    I was expecting some difficulty getting these as I heard the production on these was lower. Looks like there is still a fsr on the app. I guess everyone who wanted a pair was able to get the bright crimson so the demand may not be as high.

    So I think the whole "scarcity" of the Vaporfly is a thing of the past, right? Over the last 2 months there has been widespread availability of the VF FK. It was even on Running Warehouse for over a week where it could be purchased for $212 with the 15% discount code.

    at the end of the day it is a $250 specialized running shoes so those who wanted it for running probably have at least one pair now since they've restocked so much and probably isn't too keen on multiple pairs for that price and many also feels it is too unstable for walking/casual wear

    resellers probably backed off too because they might still be sitting on a stock of the crimsons

    This is why I can’t pay the 250.

    Same, especially since I’m not an avid runner like a lot guys in here. For them it makes total sense. I’m not going to lie though...I’d be down if I find a sale price of under $200.
