Nike trolls Twitter fan with gift package

Wednesday May 27th, 2015

Nike's most coveted sneakers sell out from the company's website at breakneck speeds, leaving its many fans angry for even bothering to try acquiring the latest drop.

As such the @NikeStore account takes a good deal of abuse from fans mad they did not get their hands on that day's hottest shoes.

Sole Collector reports that one fan in particular, Charles Henderson of Mobile, Ala., was upset about not getting his hand on the "Cork" Air Max 90's and "Oreo" Flyknit Racers, two coveted recent releases, and then mused what it must be like to be one of the select few who Nike hooks up with all of the hottest gear.

Nike decided to give the fan exactly what he wanted by sending a box filled with Oreos and corks, literally.

@NikeStore even confirmed it had sent the package.

While it may not be the hottest shoes, who can really be upset about getting some free Oreos?
