As far as the Infinity’s...I’ve just chalked it up as a loss and moved on to other models...They’ll mess me up if I put any type of substantial miles on them...

If I stay tts at my 12 then I’ll end up with heel blistering like crazy because of the slippage...If I go 11.5 then my toes will end up looking like Lebron’s 😂...

Which current Nike BB shoes you get that are running big?

I only ask because all the pairs I’ve tried have been up .5 to a full size depending on the model...I’ve been wearing mainly 12’s (Sometimes 11.5) for the past decade and a half...This year I’m mostly in 12.5-13...

But Nike is 100% changing their lasts on current performance product for sure...
I was a size 13 across the board with Nike. In My recent purchases I’ve noticed:
-Lebron 17 I started with a 13, but 12.5 worked better. I usually get one Lebron each year, but I skipped last year so I thought 13 was the same. I found out I had a lot more space than usual with a 13.
-When the Epic Reacts 1came out, I had a 13, so I thought that round be fine for the Infinity React. Not so, half size down was the golden goose.

We 12.5 in:
React Vision
React Presto
Air Max 270 React (I feel like I could possibly went 12)
Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Cody Hudson

Went 13 in:
Zoom Pegasus 36 Turbo Gyakusou
Joyride CC3 Setter
Air Max 270

Again, in my experience it feels like shoes with earlier production years ran bigger, but things more recent feel a little smaller.

Lebron 17’s highs were literally one of only two BB sneakers this season that conformed to older sizing...I’m a 12 in those just like I’ve always been...

17 low’s - 13
PG’s - 12.5
Jordan 34’s - 12.5
Jordan 34 low’s - 13
Freaks - 12
Kyrie’s - 12.5

Nike is definitely skewing towards smaller lasts on their BB shoes at this point...

Luckily the running models have been pretty consistent for me at size 12 though...

Doesn’t that mean IT IS a size issue? :nerd: If you put your foot/slide it all the way to the heel of the shoe, are your toes still at the end of the shoe?
I had the same heel slip problem at first, with a 13 in the Infinity React. Half size down worked like charm. Laces too tight will create pain/friction on the bridge of you foot.

For what it’s worth, I think Nike adjusted sizing on a lot of their recent 2019/2020 models. There have been a few running and basketball shoes that I would normally get a 13, but now a 12.5 works better.

YMMV.
I mean I've tried both my normal 10.5 (way too small) & 11. I had heel slippage regardless of how I tied my laces. It's not an issue of me having the incorrect size, it's just a design flaw, in my opinion.

these react visions probably one of the most comfortable shoes ive ever worn. the upper on the epic react more geared to performance, and as such has more stability for runners but the vision is not tight nor loose, just right and has that give so you can stretch your toes out. the perfect lifestyle shoe. love the organic design...copped this with my HCP disco for $73, prefer the all grey CW but was really feeling these too.

Got an email from Nike yesterday letting me know that my grey/volt Milers were gonna be delayed. Turns out my local Richard’s had a pair of the white ones in my size.

So far I like them wayyy better than the Infinity Runs which I really wanted to love but just gave me really bad heel slip even after trying different socks and then even trying going down 1/2 a size.

Anyway I’m gonna have to put some miles on them but so far:emoji_thumbsup::emoji_thumbsup:

And, no, it doesn’t bother me the least bit that in this colorway they have kind of an old man mall-walker vibe. No, really, it doesn’t. :emoji_stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Size issues aside, how does the sole/midsole feel In comparison to the Infinity React? More plush? More firm?

I think they’re a little firmer and definitely not as wide feeling. That was another thing about the IRs - it wasn’t just the volume of the shoe but the footprint just felt so big and I found myself scraping the edge of the sole against my calf a few times.

Forgot to mention that I think the rocker is a little less pronounced than on the IRs and grip seems pretty similar to Peg 37
