We here at Lapstone & Hammer have two great loves in our lives: fine craftsmanship and helping people. Therefore we will be giving away one pair of finely crafted Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Breds" to help out our friend, Nick Engvall. Nick has been a well-known and respected member of the sneaker community for decades. Most notably, Nick's contributions to online sneaker media have helped to shape the space where so many of us share and enjoy our common hobby. From shaping the early days of Complex Sneakers, to helping to establish the digital media arm of a major nation-wide retailer, to building Sneaker History, to his new home at Stock X - if you consider yourself part of an online sneaker community, there is no way that Nick's work hasn't reached you.
Now we have the opportunity to band together and act as a community. Nick and his family need our help. In a touching piece published to his personal blog (you can read it here) Nick explains that his mother has been diagnosed with cancer and that she will need an expensive surgery. He goes on to explain she does not have insurance due to having suffered with Lupus and other preexisting conditions that have prevented her from being insured. In conclusion he has asked for our help.
Lapstone & Hammer has decided to donate a pair of the upcoming 2016 Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Bred" as a giveaway to one donator who contributes to Nick's GoFundMe
. While we recognize that many in the sneaker community are already helping and sharing, we hope that this giveaway may serve as both a motivator and megaphone calling others to action.
- - Simply visit Nick's GoFundMe page here
- - Donate any amount
- - Leave your full name and the message "Much Love" in your donation comments.
You can donate as many times as you'd like, each donation will count as a unique entry. That's all, simply donate whatever you can and wish his family the best. Lets try and overwhelm them with support. The winner will be chosen at random from the donation page's comments on the sneaker's release date on September 3rd 2016.
