    It seems that TW europe always gets nike apparel first. Or is it just that TW US releases it later, but receives it at the same date? just wondering.

    Nike Europe might be the factor. Mostly Nike Europe even some asian countries release new items earlier than US.
    I think Nike US give TW for specific release date. I think that's the contract between TW and Nike US.
    Nearest my local store gets New items two-three weeks before TW.

    It takes longer to make the US products, requires more fabric and time.

    Nike USA sets firm dates that we can begin selling the apparel. Jan. 1 for spring, April 1 for summer, July 1 for fall, and Oct. 1 for holiday. Sometimes there are styles that are held until closer to a Major. For example, Aug. 1 we will begin selling the athletes' US Open outfits.
