    Hopefully as alot of you know, Nike are currently producing special (Red) laces in conjunction with the AIDs charity (PRODUCT)RED. All the money from the purchase of the laces goes straight to the charity and therefore helps to fight AIDs in Africa and help those in need.
    They are available directly from the Nike site, costing only £4 (not sure about dollars) and if you type the code 'FREE' in at the end, you'll get free postage.
    The campaign is being predominantly promoted by Footballers, with a vast majority of Nike sponsored players using them, but thats not to say they can't be used for other sports- i think a few players were sporting them at the AO.
    I got myself a couple of pairs, and am trying to decide which shoes to use them in. Let me know your thoughts!

    FREE code doesn't work. Until there's a free code out, I will have to hold off. :(

    Yeah, pretty much my thoughts exactly- using them in the Black vapors at the moment. Got alot of comments the other night, they definitely stand out!
    I don't think so, no. I haven't actually seen them anywhere other than from Nike direct

    maybe we can do group buy. if people buy 35 laces, we might be able to buy it around $6.50 shipped or less.

    Why not just donate the money straight to charity? Pretty shallow that you have to get something in return.

    Are you kidding me? do you think I try to make money from this?
    I SUGGESTED that there is a possibility not to pay $8 shipping fee.
    US nike charge $8 shipping for $4 laces.
    with tax it will be around $4.30 ish.
    I am 99.99 % sure that nike will not donate any money from shipping charges and less people will buy laces.

    Here is how I came up with $6.50.
    postage fee will be less than a dollar without package and with a package, it will be between $1-2 and I already wrote that it might be LESS than $6.50!!! I am not that bad person to make money from charitable items.
    I am not a super rich but I do have some money to spend. I don't need to make money to sell those charitable items.
    I can't believe that you accused me to make money from it.

    I like how the employee at the Nike Store here in Italy was very persistant on buying these laces. For 4 Euros = $6 or $7 USD.

    I'll have to pick up a few next time. I think they would go great on my Beijing Cage IIs.

    They'll be available at Nike Factory Stores on March 1. I picked up a flier for it last week when I stopped by, and I'll probably buy a couple of pairs.

    hes talking about not buying the laces at all. why not just donate the $6.50 per person to some charity?

    I just got my 2 pairs of laces in the mail. The shipping was a bit steep but went ahead with it anyhow. Got one pair for my oreos and my wife will wear the other pair on her running shoes

    These look really nice on black tennis shoes! I have them on the BW barricades and they're awesome.

    These look seriously nice. I would get those laces for my summer stuff that's coming but it would look so stupid (white/obsidian vapors & grey/blue/green ballistecs)
