Cant wait to see the outcome.
I saw a set of flyknit vics in the flesh yesterday worn by blankenship at the birmingham gp they look epic !


#362

Really looking forward to how these turn out. Kind of funny to see that picture when you consider how hard people search for OG vics


#363

I’m crying.

Anyone have any thoughts on putting a Flyknit upper on a superfly plate?? Could it be done?


#365

The lockdown would be terrible. The Flyknit upper might not be enough lockdown on a pair of Victory’s (hence why no pros seem to wear them), let alone Superfly’s.


#366

That’s what I was thinking, I feel an upper such as one on the Nike Free Flyknit would possibly provide enough lockdown.


#367

I’ve thought of doing the same thing. I believe we have seen a Free Flyknit upper on the Superfly plate before worn by a Pro Athlete.


#368

Alyson Felix used them awhile ago.


#369

Ah yes, that’s right. I just didn’t want to say her name and look like a fool if she didn’t

Hello from Europe,

Has anybody painted the plate of victorys from 2013/14 like these http://www.projectcs.de/images/large/German_Nike/1%20Wo%20Running%20157%20NIKE%20ZOOM%20VICTORY_1_LRG.jpg

wich type of color is permant at the plate?


#371

wow, you went with a brand new pair of vics? and you cut the upper off? I really hope you know what you’re doing otherwise you’re gunna have a lot of useless fabric and rubber and 260$ down the drain


#372

Got the Vic’s for $30 and I decided to go with with chlorine blue flyknits which were $150. Not too bad. I have a pretty good idea as to what I’m doing.


#373

Looking forward to seeing how it all goes. All the best.


#374

God speed


#375

Still $180 is a rather expensive project.
Although I suppose you cant really put a price on being one of the first who have built flyknit vics, (Outside of Nike)

Best of luck :slight_smile:

My family won a Dremel 3D printer (Maximum Build Volume: 9” x 5.9” x 5.5” / 230 mm x 150 mm x 140 mm) in a science fair raffle. I’m home from college and still have a month and a half before my job starts. How possible do you think it is for me to 3D print a spike plate and design my own pair of spikes?

I’m thinking take very careful measurements of a variety of spike plate (I’ve got about 30 pairs for spikes to test from :stuck_out_tongue: ), take measurements of my feet, design a template plate to fit a plate-less pair of spikes, print and test to see how it fits, possibly correct any errors, print a midfoot shank (or maybe not if I decide to make more of a LD spike (depends on how long it would last for, if I even decided to use them), and then probably rip the plate off of a pair of my spikes and paste the new one on (this could get more and more creative depending on how franken-spikish I want to get).

Post your thought on whether this idea is reasonable, insane, or both!

YOLO

How good are you with SolidWorks or CAD?
I’m not 100% sure on the specifics, but I’m pretty sure you are going to need to model it in some kind of 3D design software.


#379

I’ve got the programs, and have a decent amount of time to get familiar with them. Yeah I’ll need to model a design and that’s going to be the hardest part because it needs to be made on a flat surface.

Any advice on what type of glue I should use when making streaktumbos?
