    Hi everyone,

    I think it's time we make this official.

    We need to have Nike re-issue the Vapor V and VI


    So the idea here is to send to Nike a written request for action from their side, which is to sell those shoes again.

    We will then need to collect signatures that show we signatories are concerned about what we are asking.


    Of course if we're only 20 Nike wont even consider our request.


    Am I dreaming here?
    Jordan retro are a market for Nike's reps, but what about tennis?

    seriously?
    anyone knows somebody at nike?

    i know a guy in Paris, he works at an attorney office and they handle Federer's affairs. But it is not like if it was directly nike.
    So I need the guy to talk to Roger, and then Roger has to tell nike what to do

    i know it sounds insane but it is a start

    The market for retro Jordan is huge! There are more people who plays basketball than tennis. Tennis just doesn't have the market for it, especially in America, and certainly, the profit share is way lesser.

    You can take all the members (active or non-active combined) of TW, it's still nowhere near the number of people who plays basketball.

    Simply, Nike does not care who customer wants, so this petition most likely will not do any good.
