    To better protect the environment, NikeTalk items will ship in plastic-free packaging.

    As @Methodical Management said, we're happy to partner up and offer these Caps & Shirts, with all proceeds going towards the charitable initiatives mentioned. They were made in an environmentally considered way, and will be shipping with eco friendly packaging as well. Over the next few days, we look forward to revisiting some of the work of these legendary designers with you all.

    That's a great question. To satisfy as many people as possible, we will need to impose a limit of one hat per customer.

    I'm sorry to hear that you missed out on those. We had a bunch of them for sale in 2017 - but it's possible that we may create a limited run if enough people are interested.

    The designer roll call tees we offered via the 19th anniversary pop up shop event went so quickly that we decided to make another run - this time on organic cotton tees with a more athletic cut.
    We're really pleased with how they turned out.

    It's the same price we charged for the black snapbacks in 2017.

    Bear in mind, that money, minus only the costs of packaging and shipping, is going to charity and the hats we sold on eBay in January went for more than twice that price.

    @instyleshoes can speak to the specifics, but it's basically an old school product launch. At 1 PM EDT on 7/20, both of these products will go live on Instyleshoes.com and the items will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

    I will update the topic post with direct links to each product just prior to launch, but I'm sure you wouldn't have any difficulty finding them through the Instyleshoes.com website.

    Ask away! If I can't answer your questions, @instyleshoes can.

    Repped for the reference lol but this is actually fair. Hats were auctioned and now made, and all for a good cause. Can't complain.

    1. There will be direct links to each product. I'll share those in the thread prior to release. It's best not to announce those too far in advance due to the possibility of bots.
    2. @instyleshoes can speak to this, but I don't think bots were a problem last time around. The product sold quickly, but the store didn't suffer from any instability. This is actually an area where the price increase made a difference, because there's less incentive to resell them.
    3. For the sake of minimizing waste, it's best to combine orders - but I understand that nobody wants to lose an order while they're adding items to their cart. I've reached out to @instyleshoes to see how best to address this, whether by launching the t-shirts a few minutes before the hats, since they're in higher supply, or if they can just combine shipments for orders placed separately within a 24 hour window.

    As mentioned, we charged $75 last time around, too, and the main reason we did that was to discourage resale. When we offered our fitted caps for the MSRP of a 59 Fifty, that's when we had issues with the cap city website crashing and a lot of the hats wound up on eBay. In 2017, that really wasn't an issue. The launch went quickly and very few of them wound up on eBay.

    So, what's the better option? A $75 hat you can actually buy directly, of which nearly the full amount goes to charity, or a $35 hat that sells through before you can finish checking out, and then goes straight to eBay to line a reseller's pockets?
