About Us

Since 1999, NikeTalk has served as the premier gathering point for the world’s most dedicated and knowledgeable sneaker fans. 


Together, we’ve built NikeTalk on the principles of authenticity, integrity and respect:  for ourselves, for our culture, and for our community. 


If you’d like to take part in our forums, be sure to check out our rules of conduct.   Insults, hoaxes, nudity, profanity, and slurs are never allowed.  We expect the best from each other, but that’s part of what makes NikeTalk such a tightly knit community and helps us to be better together than we are separately.


NikeTalk members help each other out.   Whether you’re trying to find rare shoes or even if you just need to get something off your chest, if you’ve been good to the community then we’ve got your back. 


To keep pace with all of the latest news, be sure to check out the discussion forums and subscribe to topics of interest.  Looking for something specific?  Head over to the Gear / Reviews section.   Each shoe has its own dedicated page, where you’ll find detailed reviews, extensive product information, related discussion threads, and even opportunities to buy from trusted merchants and community members.  


If you become an active and established member of the forums, and would like to sell something, you can list it on our buy/sell forums.  Our volunteer buy/sell guides personally review every single listing to help keep our fellow members safe from fakes and fraud.  If you only need to list a few items at a time, it won’t cost you a cent. 

“Giving back” isn’t just something we do for PR; it’s the reason we created NikeTalk to begin with. 

It’s our way of giving back to both the sneaker enthusiast community and to the greater global community of which we are all a part. 


Since 2006, NikeTalk has donated over $200,000 to charities like the Children’s Defense Fund, Room to Read, Habitat for Humanity, the Humane Society of the United States, Doctors Without Borders, and the UNCF.  For a complete list, please click on the Charity tab to learn more.  You can help by participating in our community fundraising events – or just by browsing the site! 


If you have any questions, feel free to reach us via email:

We look forward to hearing from you.

NikeTalk emerged from friendship. It exists because of a friendship forged online between strangers gathered within a common space due to a shared interest. That is both the 'how' and the 'why' of NikeTalk. It exists because of the friendships we've made, because of the friendships we'd hoped to make, and because of the friendships we hoped YOU would make.


Hang out with likeminded people.


If that sounds like you:  welcome home.
