***FREE SHOES UPDATE:
NikeTalk member "peterflight" has offered to giveaway a free pair of new "Hops" shoes, which he designed, to the winner of the Other Brands Contest. The winner will be able to select any colorway shoe model and size of their choosing from the debut product launch of the Hops brand on November 1st.
Peterflight started out his design career by posting footwear sketches right here on NikeTalk a few years ago and this is his first big break into the industry.

My best advice for other companies is to-
be true to yourself, dont follow the rabbit down the hole.
stop with the endless "limited packs".
keep customers interested in what you have, a quality product.
collaborations didnt get you where you are today, a good shoe with a good fanbase did.
where are the converse weapons?
where are the signature shoes, or team colorways?
Keep improving the materials on you "id's" on your site and stay at a competitive price.
Even balance, produce those Retros people love and shoes that push the technological level that people will love.
Have a feedback button on your website, listen to the people.
