Hello All -
Here is what you need to know for your Strideline business:
FW'23 Prebook deadline.
- 6/1 for a 10/15 ship date.
- 6/15 for a 11/1 ship date.
Have you contacted your accounts?
- Are accounts thinking about socks? PROBABLY NOT
- Are some schools shutting it down for the summer? YES
- Do smaller accounts typically ‘prebook’ socks? NO
- We 100% understand the challenges, but still contact your accounts and be the first sock rep they think about when the time comes to order.
Rep portal. Spring 2024 Condensed/emailable version attached. Larger version can be downloaded in the link. Download to your machine! Physical copies will be at your house in July. Prior to our Spring 2024 call.
- All new designs marked with an asterisk will not be available until 1/15/24.
- If for any reason you do have an account that wants to see 2024 now, go ahead and show them.
- Spring 2024 Mandatory Virtual call. 7/11/2023, 9am West Coast time. Hit ‘YES’ on the attendance. Spring 2024 samples will be there prior to the meeting!
- MLS reorders. Season is in full swing. My ask is to check in every other week at least to see if they need fill ins.
- NFLPA. Continue to push. I need your feedback on how those calls are going.
- MLBPA. Same here.
- Pro Image program. I’m going to work with Bill/franchisor, and we will relaunch a holiday program for them. It’s a great time to check in. Then Bill will hit them up after we send out the program.
- NCAA. Stand by for your NCAA master list. We have over 300 licenses and we want all to have Strideline. There should be no surprises on what you should be repping, but it will be freshly vetted.
