Product Details

SNEAKER POLITICS of the South West USA opts for vintage maximalism with their foremost Consortium entry: a vibrant and flavourful Samba OG. Influenced by the 70s heritage of our lasting and storied adicolor franchise, this more-is-more sneaker design combines some of the most memorable fashion moments of the era.

Blue, green, yellow and red… the elegant upper in a shiny satin nylon is a celebration of the colour blocking trend which is a significant departure from the OG models' conservative, neutral colouring. This change brings some musicality to the previously sport-centric fabrication of the shoe, while the premium leather and hairy suede are paired with this new colour palette and a playful animal-print insock.

What is a pre-authorized payment?

A pre-authorized payment means that the payment provider will hold an amount to your credit card until the end of the draw. This amount is equivalent to the price of the item plus the shipping fee. Once raffle results are drawn, the payment will fully be captured only for successful entries, while unsuccesful entries will have the amount released back to their accounts by their card issuer. This is to decrease bot activity and to give everybody a fair chance to win.

When you submit an entry to a FCFS release, a pre-authorized payment will be held by Payment provider to your credit card until the end of the draw. The amount will be equivalent to the price of the product and shipping fee. Held payments during this period will be captured only for winning entries, and released by your card issuer back to your account for non-winning entries.

Please be reminded that Commonwealth does not receive the payment during the entry period. The credit card charges will not be accepted nor transferred to Commonwealth until a customer wins the raffle. The credit card charges of non-winning entries will be voided and returned to the customer, subject to the reversal procedures of the issuing banks. Commonwealth is not responsible for any delay, issue, and coordination with your card provider.

*Commonwealth Launches is strictly for credit card payments only. Please be reminded that the use of debit cards will not be accepted. Should you choose to enter a raffle with a debit card, Commonwealth is not responsible for any delay, issue, and coordination with your card provider.
