When it comes to tweeting at Nike, be careful what you wish for.
Last week a 23-year-old man named Charles Henderson, who goes by the Twitter name "ShoeDealer," asked a simple question:
How special you have to be to get gifts from nike like shoes and stuff ￼

Even though Henderson didn't tag Nike in his post, it appears as though someone on the company's social media team noticed the tweet.
Henderson told SoleCollector.com that he tweets at the Nike Store's Twitter account often, inquiring about Nike's cork sneakers and the "Oreo" Flyknit racers:
@nikestore those not Oreos

@nikestore not corks

This week Henderson found a package on his doorstep from Nike. This is what he was expecting:
— #SFNY (@SOLEFOOD_NY) May 25, 2015
— The Sole Supplier (@thesolesupplier) May 26, 2015
This is what he got:

"I kinda laughed but I realized that this is really dope," Henderson told SoleCollector.com about the prank. "They care that much."
The Nike Store had this to say about the troll job:
@Est1991__ Got eem.
— Nike.com (@nikestore) May 26, 2015
It appears Henderson eventually got his hands on the Oreos:
