Update: Our pop-up shop is now closed. We'll be back soon!
First, thank you so much for all the NT birthday wishes and messages. It has always been a pleasure to be a part of a community as warm and as faithful as NikeTalk. As our community turns 19 years old, we acknowledge that we would not be here without YOU.
To celebrate, we're excited to announce that we have a virtual pop-up shop with our sponsor, InStyleShoes.com this year. Did you miss out on any NikeTalk merchandise in the past? Did you want a unique and memorable gift for your loved one?
All shirts are $25 each and are very limited quantities and sizing. Only while supplies last. Our pop-up store is going to close up on Dec 12, 2018 at 8 PM Eastern Time.
Shown: The NikeTalk Pippen shirt
From L to R: NikeTalk Tinker & Grey shirt, NikeTalk Tinker & Black shirt, NikeTalk Tinker & Orange shirt
Sorry we missed you. Check back soon for the recording!

If you can't tune in live, an archived version of the stream will be available after the event has concluded.
Opening night is less than a week away so i figured we'd get this thing started. A big thanks to @big j 33 for running the Offseason thread. Time for another 8 months of awful takes, bets, bans, and receipts.
LeBron on the other LA team, likely the final year of the Warriors starting 5, Rockets heyward back in Boston, Fultz doing unfathomable things like shooting 10 footers, and Kawhi laughing in Toronto. Lots to watch.
A couple pics to ge the juices flowing.

Let me just say this thread isn’t going to be for everyone. If your not capable of responding in a respectful, none malice, forward thinking, and open minded manner just ignore this topic altogether.
Hopefully this thread will not get flagged for hate post or inciting controversial responses but we are the consumer and have the right to our opinions. Everyone in these forums has spent A LOT of money on Nike products. Some of us have businesses aligned with Nike. Some of us even have Nike themed tattoos ( I personally do).
Initially seeing Nike’s campaign announcement I wanted to tweet my stance about it BUT social media can be a place we’re peoples responses are only for shock value. Seeing people cutting the swooshes off their socks, burning shoes, burning shirts, and other Nike logos really has never happened before. So I thought; “Where could I discuss people burning Nike products because of the choice of an ad campaign?” Which brings me to NT.
On Sunday, November 4th, we'll be holding a community meetup event, NikeTalk Live, at Rhythms Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event is expected to run from noon to 4pm, but, if the previous event offers any indication, may run a bit longer.
Guests can look forward to an experience similar to that of NikeTalk Live 2016.
Images will be appearing soon but here is what we know so far. The model is more evolutionary than revolutionary.
Same Zoom Max cushioning setup as the LeBron 15
Evolution of the battle knit upper
Improved traction pattern
Lateral stability improvements (think outriggers)
Many many silly story telling ideas just to sell more shoes
And.... MAYBE NikeID
When Anna Wintour gives her approval for editorial or creative, she simply writes “AWOK,” which stands for “Anna Wintour Okay.” The Vogue editor-in-chief teamed up with Jordan Brand to put this approval stamp on two iconic silhouettes for the ultimate co-sign.
The AJI Zip AWOK comes in University Red and Sail colorways. Its ultra-soft leather upper is accented by a bold metallic zipper and new embellishments, including a Swoosh. It comes with an “Edited by Vogue” Nike Air tag and the AWOK signature on the sole and tongue.
Inspired by Anna’s signature suits and sunglasses, the AJIII SE AWOK features tweed as the primary upper material, and a back heel with the AWOK moniker. The AJIII SE AWOK comes in black and red colorways.
Both shoes come in a premium box with two suede dust bags and an “Edited by Vogue” keychain.

Don C's work with Jordan Brand has already produced several sought-after Air Jordan 2 collaborations, but the Just Don founder will soon apply his eye for design to his very own model.
In the latest episode of the Failing Upwards podcast, Don C joins hosts James Harris and Lawrence Schlossman to discuss he and Kanye West's countless contributions to the culture. But the biggest reveal is towards the end of the interview, when Don C reveals his next Jordan is the first of its kind.
"It's a Jordan that you've never seen before," Don C confirmed. While he didn't expand beyond that, there has recently been rumors of a new Don C model from @pinoe77, who says the sneaker will resemble the strap-equipped Nike Air Trainer 3. This wouldn't be the first time Nike gave the Just Don designer creative freedom, as he also re-tooled the Air Force 1 High for the brand's AF-100 campaign.
Recent rumors have connected Don C to the return of the Nike Air Yeezy 2. While his confirmation of a...
At NikeTalk, we believe that we're stronger together than we ever could be separately. As a community, we've donated over $360,000 for charity from our advertising revenues - and raised an additional $35,000 through merchandising and group fundraising events.
Thus far, we've contributed to a wide array of amazing organizations, but we've been particularly supportive of those devoted to education and literacy. NikeTalk has now sponsored school and library programs in eight different countries. Today, I'm thrilled to share a progress update from one of our most recent projects, a Room to Read library at the Government Primary School in Karmandi, India.
In late 2015, we contributed $30,000 to Room to Read, one of the world's premiere nonprofit organizations dedicated to promoting literacy and gender equality in education to sponsor the library itself, as well provide...
