Those looking for another chance to cop some of the year's most wavy sneakers could be in luck, as a site benefitting charity, sneakertrees.org, is sneakily re-upping on 140 total pairs for retail price.

Hosted by Shopify CTO Jean-Michel Lemieux, the flash sale will offer Travis Scott's Nike SB Dunk Lowsthe Supreme Nike Air Force 1sthe Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 "Zyon," and the Nike Dunk Low in "University Red," "Brazil," and "Champ Colors."

All sales will be donated to the U.S.-based charity Shoes That Fit and The Kickback in Canada, which both empower children in need with athletic shoes.

Besides supporting a good cause, one of Lemieux's goals with this re-release was apparently to create an online portal impenetrable by bots, the enemy of sneaker buyers who aren't interested in reselling. "Manual only. Bots can try, but good luck. Just humans, by humans, for humans," he tweeted.

Let's hope his challenge doesn't backfire.

The first wave of the "Get Back On Your Feet" reveal will be available this Friday, Aug. 14, at 11 a.m. ET. Check out Lemieux's Twitter feed for updates on the second wave arriving later this month.
