Some collect sneakers, others collect promo – items released alongside the shoes in order to help retail fronts market and advertise certain releases.
In no particular order, here is a list of some Promo pieces I found while lurking on eBay.
I was not abloe to find out much about these figures – though I'm pretty sure they were never available to the public.
I do remember a Nike SB ad (2003 / 2004) where the Reese and Gino figures are holding their "Custom Series" colorways.
Need some pillows? Need some Nike SB branded pillows in particular? Look no further…
From what I recall, these were not available to the public and were shipped to shops in conjuction with a P-Rod release. However, these seem to pop up on eBay often and sometimes for pretty cheap.
This "Maneki Neko" was released alongside the "Money Cat" pack and was given to shops only. The right paw being raised invites money and good fortune (usually to businesses).
These Medicom x Nike SB figures were shipped to shops only for the "Three Bears" pack.
This promo piece is mostly used in windows displays and is / was not available to the public.
