StockX x adidas IPO


10.15.2019 – 10.18.2019


1. Eligibility: The StockX adidas IPO (the “Auction”) is open to persons who are at least eighteen (18) years of age or older.

This Auction is subject to all applicable laws and regulations (as applicable) and is void where prohibited.  Participation constitutes bidder’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and StockX LLC’s (“Sponsor”) decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Auction.  The right to purchase the Goods (as defined below) is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

2. Sponsor: StockX LLC, 1046 Woodward Avenue, Detroit MI 48226; [email protected].

3. Auction Period:  The Auction begins on October 15, 2019, at 9:00 pm Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) and ends on October 18, 2019, at 9:00 pm EST (the “Auction Period”).

All bids must be submitted during the Auction Period for the Goods as described below to be valid.

4. How to Bid: The Auction is a blind Dutch auction.

During the Auction Period, to make a bid to purchase the Goods, go to StockX mobile app, or, log in to your account (or create one for free) and place a bid as a buyer for any of the adidas IPO Products—Campus 80s by Alex Nash, Campus 80s by Helen Kirkum, Campus 80s by Shun Hirose (all colors, all sizes) (collectively, the “Goods”). At the time you place the bid, you will not make any payment. During the Auction Period, you may modify or cancel your bid at any time.

For each size and color of the Goods, the applicable product page will indicate the number of Goods that will be eligible to win the Auction (e.g., ten items of Campus 80s by Shun Hirose, size 10, will be available to be won at auction) (the “Available Amount”). Following the Auction Period, the number of highest bidders for each item of Goods equal to the Available Amount will win the applicable Goods (as applicable, the “Winners”). The Winners of an item of Goods will be charged and responsible to pay the price bid by the lowest bidder amongst the applicable Winners (the “Clearing Price”) of such Goods.

For example, if there for are seven (7) items of a Campus 80s by Helen Kirkum pairs, sized 8, available for auction, and the top eight (8) bids for such Goods are as follows:

Highest Bidders

Original Bid Price




Wins; pays $300



Wins; pays $300



Wins; pays $300



Wins; pays $300



Wins; pays $300



Wins; pays $300



Wins; pays $300



Does not win

then, in the example above, the Clearing Price would be $300, which is the lowest price bid by a Winner. In the example above, Winners 1-6 pay the Clearing Price, even though they bid higher than the Clearing Price. Furthermore, bidder 8 (and any other bidders who bid lower than the Clearing Price) will not win the Goods.

In the event that the number of bidders placing an identical bid amount which would otherwise equal or exceed the Clearing Price exceeds the Available Amount, then Winners shall be chosen based on which bidders entered their bids in the Auction first. In other words, if the applicable Available Amount is ten (10), and the eleven (11) highest bidders all bid $500, then the Winners will be the first ten (10) highest bidders to have made the bid of $500, and the eleventh (11th) highest bidder will not win the right to purchase the Goods.

Bidders do not know the amount of the bids that others are making.

Individuals who do not follow all of the instructions, provide the required information, successfully submit their bid, and/or abide by these Official Rules or other reasonable instructions of Sponsor may be disqualified.

Each person may bid once on each particular pair of Goods, but there is no limit on how many Goods a bidder may make a bid.

Automated entries are prohibited, and any use of automated devices will cause disqualification. Any bidder that attempts to complete or submit fraudulent entries will be disqualified (including all of that bidder’s bids) in Sponsor’s reasonably exercised discretion. Bidders may not enter with multiple e-mail addresses nor may bidders use any other device or artifice to enter multiple times or as multiple bidders. Any bidder who attempts to enter with multiple e-mail addresses, under multiple identities, or uses any device or artifice to register multiple times will be disqualified and forfeits any and all prizes won, in Sponsor’s reasonably exercised discretion.  Multiple bidders are not permitted to share the same e-mail address. Should multiple users of the same e-mail account enter the Auction and a dispute thereafter arise regarding the identity of the bidder, the authorized account holder of the said e-mail account at the time of entry will be considered the bidder. “Authorized Account Holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider or other organization, which is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses or the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the Authorized Account Holder.

5. Results:  On or around October 18, 2019, Sponsor will determine the Winners from among all eligible bids for each pair of Goods received during the Auction Period. Odds of winning the right to purchase the Goods depend on the number of eligible bids received and the amounts of the bids.

On or around October 18, 2019, Winners will be notified via the e-mail address and/or telephone number provided during entry into the Auction. Bidders who did not win the right to purchase the Goods on which they bid will not be notified.

The selected Winners shall purchase the applicable Goods for which they successfully bid for the Clearing Price. The purchase must be completed by transferring the Clearing Price to Sponsor by October 21, 2019 (the “Payment Date”). If a selected winner does not purchase the Product by the Payment Date, the bid will not be valid and such person will no longer be entitled to obtain the Goods.

Potential winners are subject to verification. If a potential winner is found not to be eligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, if attempted notification or any Product is returned as undeliverable, if any required documents are not returned within the required number of days, if a winner cannot be verified, or if a winner is otherwise unable or unwilling to accept and claim the Goods as stated, the winner may be disqualified and the Goods may be forfeited in Sponsor’s reasonably exercised discretion.   In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to not award the Goods to any other bidder. Where lawful under applicable law, Winners may be required to complete, sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability Release and a Publicity Release, within seven (7) days of attempted notification or Goods may be forfeited. Sponsor is not responsible for any change of email address, mailing address and/or telephone number of bidders.

In the event of unforeseen circumstances, if any Goods, or any portion thereof, cannot be awarded, Sponsor shall substitute the Goods with another product of equal or greater value or refund the bid at the Winner’s choice.  Due to the unique nature of certain Goods, color variations may occur.  Winners will be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and for any other fees or costs associated with the Goods they receive, regardless of whether it, in whole or in part, is used. Product awarded to a winner may be reported for tax purposes where required by law. Please allow 4-6 weeks for shipment of the Goods after confirmation.
