    Have you forgotten already?  On January 12th, Haiti endured a massive earthquake, which reportedly claimed over 100,000 lives, left approximately one million people homeless, and caused incalculable damage to the nation's inhabitants and its infrastructure.  While the press coverage may have subsided, Haitians still need our support. 

    To help, we at NikeTalk have teamed up with six immensely talented artists, the sneaker customization gurus behind Evolved Footwear, JGoods Custom Sneakers, 1of Customs, JBF Custom Shoes, and Revive Customs, to present NikeTalk's first ever custom sneaker charity auction. 

    Each artist has generously donated a pair of amazing custom sneakers, designed specifically for this event.  You'll be bidding on the only pairs in existence. 

    Normally, you'd hear something like "proceeds will benefit..." or "a portion of the proceeds will benefit" charity in events like this.  However, due to the generosity of these artists, the FULL 100% of your bids will go to Doctors Without Borders, in support of their ongoing efforts to rebuild Haiti's medical infrastructure, provide on the ground care and support, and further their courageous efforts around the world.

    In addition, NikeTalk will go one step further by MATCHING your bids up to $1,000 per pair to help maximize our overall community contribution to this important cause.  

    Below, you'll see all five items along with a brief description composed by the artist.  The last day to submit bids will be THIS Sunday, May 23rd.  After 12:00 AM EST on May 24th, we'll no longer accept bids and auction winners will be contacted. 


    How do I bid?

    We'll follow a silent auction format.  Just post here or send us an email with your bid: [​IMG]  Please be sure 1) your bid is greater than the current leader's and 2) you specify the item(s) you're bidding on. 

    Please keep in mind that these shoes are one of a kind and are ONLY available in the size listed.


    Do I need to be a NikeTalk member?

    No!  You can bid by email.  We'll update this page periodically to reflect the current high bids, which will include those submitted via email.  If you win, we'll contact you by email to finalize your purchase and arrange for the shipping of your new, one of a kind custom sneakers.
