    With each of our two previous NikeTalk New Era cap releases, we've heard from dozens of our fellow members who've expressed a preference for snapbacks instead of the traditional fitted cap. 

    It's become our number one apparel request, and, now, that request will finally be granted.  

    Our friends at @eCapCity  have helped us produce 72 NikeTalk New Era 9FIFTY snapback hats.  They will be sold exclusively through @INSTYLESHOES, alongside our newly recovered NKETLK t-shirts.

    Hats and t-shirts will go on sale Saturday, April 15th at noon Eastern (9 AM Pacific) at Instyleshoes.com.

    We should have about 50 hats available for purchase.  The price will be $75 for the hat, $25 for the t-shirt.  Domestic shipping via USPS First Class Mail is included. 

    The proceeds from these sales (everything other than the actual costs of shipping) will be distributed between:

    The American Civil Liberties Union

    The Equal Justice Initiative

    The Natural Resources Defense Council

    and 

    The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund

    Good luck to all!

    UPDATE:

    A restock of about 25 hats will go up Saturday, April 22nd at noon Eastern (9 AM Pacific) at Instyleshoes.com.

    We're also offering three "last chance" bundle auctions for a hat AND t-shirt in your chosen size.

    Auction #1: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NIKETALK-SN...Auction-100-proceeds-to-IRC-LC-1/322486646407

    Auction #2: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NIKETALK-SN...Auction-100-proceeds-to-IRC-LC-2/322488544050

    As before, 100% of the purchase price for the eBay auctions go to the International Rescue Committee.

    Previously:

    With such limited quantities, we wanted to give those most interested in these items the opportunity to guarantee their purchase, so we began by auctioning off one hat and t-shirt bundle each day for seven days on eBay with our friends at @INSTYLESHOES.

    Using the eBay charity auction system, a full 100% of the purchase price - including shipping - was be donated to the International Rescue Committee, a highly efficient and well-respected organization dedicated to helping refugees and others impacted by crises around the world.  

    The auctions raised a total of $1,692 for the International Rescue Committe:

    Thank you for your patience, interest, and support!

    Now you can get both.  Each auction includes one cap AND one shirt in the winner's choice of sizes, with 100% of the proceeds going to the International Rescue Committee

    Previous releases were sold on ecapcity.com.  After a number of people began constantly calling their store to inquire about them, and multiple customers attempted to defraud them by claiming non-receipt of their packages, Cap City decided they could no longer sell these items on their store.

    We still wanted to make some available for our community, so the decision was made to purchase 72 at our own expense for a giveaway promotion.

    That promotion was cancelled once it became clear that we would be parting ways with Wikia (http://niketalk.com/t/660120/niketalk-will-be-moving-later-this-year), but our friends at Instyleshoes graciously stepped in to help us distribute the caps.   
    All of the eBay funds will go to rescue.org.  eBay charity auctions are only available for those organizations that are registered for the service.  

    The funds raised through the sale of NT gear on Instyleshoes.com will be divided equally between  

    The American Civil Liberties Union

    The Equal Justice Initiative

    The Natural Resources Defense Council

    and 

    The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund
