Starting today and spanning the next 36 hours we are releasing 10 new designs for fan voting. And the twist is, we are going to let you guys decide which ones you want us to make! All you have to do is vote!
You can cast your votes via Facebook through Likes, Comments, and Shares. You can also cast your votes on our Instagram via Likes and Comments. Ultimately we will tally up all the votes and produce what you guys love the most.
Thank you for casting your votes and being a part of what makes Take Flight so unique in the world of clothing and Parkour!
Our world famous slogan Jump. Fly. Dream.(TM) is now boldly and elegantly displayed on a tee. It’ll fit your urban Traceur style while keeping you looking cool and refined. We’re making it in Royal Blue and Purple, and best of all the tee is only $16 for a limited time!
Special thanks to Dakota Lee who is the fan designer behind this tee! We tweaked his concept, and finalized the design you can see above. For his efforts we’ll be sending him 4 JFD Tees for free plus a 1st place contest prize of $75.
This tee is limited edition so don’t delay in picking up yours!
The Jump Fly Dream Tee Design contest was a huge success with a ton of amazing tee design entries from you guys! It was hard deciding the winner and the four runner ups, but we’ve finally arrived at a decision and we present the contest results to you here:
Note: these runner ups were selected separately from our final round of voting. Some of the entered designs were amazing but didn’t quite fit our brand style. For that reason, although they weren’t ultimately considered for the winning entry, we did feel they deserved runner-up status.
#4 Runner Up – Niyash Nizar
#3 Runner Up – Stephen Lanteri
Our plan is to giveaway 500 PAIRS of the new Take Flight 1.0 Parkour Shoe! But something has to happen first: Guy Dunlap has to win the World Series of Poker Main Event.
The World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event begins today. What is the first place prize, you ask? About $8,500,000. Why is this significant, you ask? Because Guy Dunlap, the brother of Take Flight founder Adam Dunlap, is playing in the tournament. Also, just so you know, Guy is a professional poker player so he knows what he’s doing.
If Guy wins, Take Flight founder Adam Dunlap has pledged to give away 500 pairs of the up and coming Take Flight 1.0 Parkour shoe! And he has pledged to give them all away to, well who else? The Take Flight fans.
All you have to do to claim your FREE pair is comment on our “Good Luck Guy” posts in Facebook and wish Guy the best in the tournament. If there are more than 500 commenters then we’ll draw for the 500 out of those who comment. This is all of course assuming Guy wins.
Regardless of the outcome of the WSOP Main Event, we are planning to unveil our Take Flight 1.0 Parkour shoe to the public on September 15th.
Follow this link to find out more information about the WSOP and stayed tuned to our page for daily updates on Guy’s progress. Good luck Guy, and good luck to all of you!!

We held an End of the World Design Contest. The mission was simple: find the Flight Man in the Maya Calendar, or incorporate him into it.
So, so, so many great entries were made that we couldn’t decide who the winner was! So we posted the top five on Facebook and let the fans decide. A clear winner emerged, and it was William Zhuang.
Below is William Zhang’s winning Maya Calendar. Let’s just say that according to Flight Man was really good friends with the Mayans :-) Or as one fan put it, “The Flight Man saved the world!!”
William won a Parkour Hoodie for his winning entry. Thank you William and to all the other entries in the contest!!
We’ve decided to hold a little design contest to celebrate the end of the world. The winner gets a Parkour Hoodie of their choice! Here are the details:
- Today is the long awaited “End of the World” 21st of December. This date is based on the Mayan calendar (example picture below)
- We are challenging you to integrate the Flight Man into the Mayan calendar Or as we say, “find the Flight Man in the Mayan calendar.” We’re pretty sure he is there if you look :)
- Find a photo/image of the Mayan calendar and use that as a base to edit in/design in/photoshop in the Flight Man. Any image of the Mayan Calendar will work as a base, but we recommend something professional and clear. We want it to look real! The image below is a good example.
- Post your finished design on our Facebook wall!!
- Deadline is December 28th! We’ll announce the winner on our Facebook on the 29th.
Flight Man Logo can be downloaded here: CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD FLIGHT MAN LOGO
How big is the Flight Man? What color is he? Where is he on the calendar? That’s all up to you and what you see.
Good luck to all and happy December 21st!
It’s that time of year again. Halloween is approaching and that means the Take Flight Pumpkin Carving Contest is here! Inspired by the first fan pumpkin submission in 2010, every year for Halloween we now have a TF pumpkin carving contest, and with this post the 2012 contest is on.
This year it works like this:
- Carve a pumpkin and make it say “Take Flight” and/or have the Flight Man logo in it! Adding Traceurs in flight, “Parkour”, or other things are welcomed too. Be creative!
- Post a picture of your pumpkin on our Facebook wall for us to see –> www.facebook.com/takeflightapparel

*Note: If there are lots of submissions we’ll up the number of gift certificates.

We are on the verge of launching the biggest sweepstakes that has ever swept the Parkour community. It is called The Parkour Dream Trip Sweepstakes, and the grand prize is an all expense paid week long trip for 4 to the Parkour birthplace Lisses, France this summer 2012 (winner can also choose to go in 2013 if they prefer). In addition, if the scheduling works out, the grand prize winners will spend a day training with the founder of Parkour, David Belle.
Presented here by Take Flight founder Adam Dunlap, this contest is more than just about a big prize. It’s about bringing energy, synergy, and togetherness to the Parkour community. So in addition to the grand prize dream trip, we will also be giving away clothing, signed Parkour merchandise, cash prizes, and video cameras. It is going to be huge!
But we haven’t launch the sweepstakes yet. And what do we need in order to launch this sweepstakes? We need the support of the Parkour community! But it’s really simply. All we need you to do is show your support by liking the Take Flight page on Facebook which can be found at http://www.Facebook.com/TakeFlightApparel or at http://www.iTakeFlight.com. We currently have roughly 39,000 Facebook fans. The goal is 100,000 fans. If we have crossed the 100,000 fan mark by April 15, 2012, then we’ll launch the sweepstakes.
It’s up to you to make this sweepstakes happen! Share this video with friends in the Parkour world and let’s send a group on the Parkour Dream Trip of a lifetime.

Participation of David Belle is subject to his schedule and is presented in this video in good faith, but is neither guaranteed nor promised. Some contest restrictions may apply.
