- Stickers and Laces are now covered by your BA code if you buy a pair of shoes!! Your BA code code applies to any order value of $14 USD or more.
- We have transitioned into an “opt out” vs “opt in” strategy to move from term to term! If you have posted on all your Blitz days you will be automatically moved into the next BA term! Need to take a break from the program, do not to worry! We can easily remove you if it is no longer serving you. Just PM us on Slack or text us on the BANGS hotline!
- We have added a Sunshine Day at the end of the term where we randomly select prize winners who participated in all 3 Blitz Days!!
Blitz 2 - August 19
Blitz 3 - September 10
Blitz 4 - October 1
Blitz 2 - December 16
Blitz 3 - January 7
After each Blitz we release a Survey for our community to vote on some of our most creative images posted!
Our surveys contain 5 categories that stay the same each term which are... Shoe Selfie, BANGS Art, Adventure Buddies / Companions, Spirit Guide & Sole Mates, and Wildcard. The wildcard category is a submission box where BAs can submit links to IG posts that they feel should have been included in the survey, either someone else’s post or their own! Winners of this category will be chosen at BANGS’ discretion.
The Blitz Survey is one of our MOST favorite times of the year to highlight some of your work! Please know that we are not able to select everyone's images (and that the process of narrowing down is HARD!) but if your image is NOT selected is does not mean that you didn't crush Blitz!! To help give you a better idea of what we're looking for check out this list below.
Please also know that number of followers, likes, and comments are NOT taken into consideration whatsoever for images selected to appear on our survey.
- High quality images (no pixelation)
- Interesting perspectives
- Clearly visible BANGS
- Unique additions to images
- Creative flare
- In line with Blitz Survey categories: Shoe Selfie, BANGS Art, Adventure Buddies / Companions, Spirit Guide & Sole Mates, and Wildcard.

1. How to silence a channel & manage notifications:
2. How to leave a channel
3. How to add yourself to a channel
You can join as many channels as you'd like, but I recommend only choosing your top 3 so you don't get overwhelmed! You can also leave a channel at any point if it no longer serving you! Below I have included some ""How Tos"" but I would also encourage you to click around & get SUPER comfortable in Slack. It will be the primary place to connect with the BANGS Community!
- Please do not spam any Slack channels with your IG handle! The BANGS Slack is a sacred space where we are trying to build a real, online community. It is a place to share & talk, and if you would like to give your IG handle to someone personally, please PM them!
- Slack has a Desktop App and whew let me tell you! It's a game changer!! After you get your email invite, I highly recommend checking it out!
- If there is a channel you'd like to see created, share your ideas in the #ideas channel in Slack & a Spirit Guide will help us figure out if we can make it! We will do our best to make all channel recommendations, but cannot make every single one!
