    Guys let's keep all concepts collab discussion here so as not to clog up the NB, Asics, etc threads with shipping info and talk.

    In reference to previous concepts releases it's best to refresh the home page and the brand page of the shoe you're looking for. It will pop up in both places.

    Concepts no longer uses the system where an item is held in cart while you check out, so check out fast.

    NBs are online today at 12pm eastern.

    Thanks for starting this thread! Much appreciated. In terms of sizing on 997s, how do most people go? TTS or 0.5 down? For 1600s I went with a 9 but felt like I could have gone for an 8.5 but it might have been a little snug

    In general NB is a half size down from your Nike Sportswear size. If you wear a 9 in Air max 1s etc you can probably do an 8.5 in NB997.

    Also it helps to learn your Euro and CM size and check those as well. Because sometimws a US9 can be Different CM sizes between brands and that can help you choose to size up or down.

    Adding on to this. Just keep hitting refresh until you see it pop-up. Then make sure you have Google Crome Auto-fill and Credit Card Auto-fill on and it should be an easy cop. I have never missed a Supreme or Kith release using this method. If you wait for tweet link or enter in your CC info manually you have already lost.

    Does anyone else feel the same way? Usually a true 11 and bought 998's in that size, which were fine. Should I get an 11 in the 997's?

    I dont mind paying $17 for shipping if i actually get the shoe in about a week. But if it takes 2 weeks or more.Hell Naw.
