Nike cutting off basketball shoe sizes at 13 or 14 is absolutely retarded. I guess you gotta work in the industry to fully understand, but when they make the roshe runner up to like an 18 and the Kobe to a 15 it makes no sense to me
I think they are really limiting the public site from the bigger sizes because a lot of their athletes use nikeelite.com Could be wrong but Im guessing their 14-18 market is fairly small on the public site.
Is that like having a rep? Never heard of nikeelite.com. Guess I'm REALLY out of the loop! LOL In high school and college I knew people where I could make a call, or make a call and have someone make a call.
Greetings redditors and redditees, Nike has a separate website (NikeElite.com) designed specifically for the professional athletes they sponsor to order merchandise, as a part of their endorsement deals, without charge. I was on my laptop one night and I found a loophole in their system which allowed me to hack into a plethora of professional athlete accounts (all big names). Once I was in, I registered myself as a guest so I could maintain access. Then it was time to begin making orders. I started out small and made a few $300 shipments to my apartment using three different accounts. I waited to see if Nike would notice what I was doingâ€¦ but they didn't. I decided to expand the operation so I recruited people to accept deliveries for me in four different states (Arizona, Virginia, Florida, North Carolina). I spent the next five months racking up over $80,000 worth of sports gear. I was on top of the world, until I got a knock on the door from the Secret Serviceâ€¦ with a search warrant. They ended up busting my door down and they ultimately seized 231 pieces of Nike equipment I had stored in my condo as evidence. After hiring a good lawyer, I agreed to assist Nike so they could fix their problem and plug all of their leaks in exchange for avoiding prison time and being placed on probation.
I've been shot at, played college baseball and was a friend/assistant/trainer/pick-up artist for professional athletes before becoming interested in computers. I wrote a book which contains plenty of crazy stories about girls, celebrities, inside information and confidential documents I haven't released yet. Still contemplating going the traditional or e-book route.
