Nike Witness Shirts- You will never own one
Many UK fans wondered where they could get one, this one asked. Thanks to UK D Shack for emailing Nike and answering the question via TCP.
"I appreciate you taking the time to email me about your interest in a special edition Meek Witness tee shirt. At this time the Nike 'Meek' Witness tee shirt was only produced for the UK basketball players and not sold at retail. This shirt along with other special mark-up tee shirts are specifically made for student athletes. As stated in an article on Kentuckysports.com - : "The shirts, which Nike produced for the UK team and athletic department personnel "within two-three-four days" of the game, will not be sold commercially, Newton said. The shirt has the word "Witness" on the front, borrowing the term of a LeBron James campaign. Nike also used the term for a campaign with Connecticut's women's team and Davidson's Stephen Curry-led NCAA Tournament run last year." In your behalf, I have passed your valuable feedback on to our collegiate team group for future consideration. Sorry for not being able to fulfill your request, but let me know if you have any other questions I can assist you with. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your day! Sincerely, RuiNike PS: Go Wildcats!"
