Footlocker Raffle Madness for Nike and Jordan Sneakers
As off 9AM early this Friday morning, sneaker enthusiasts had already lined up outside Footlocker’s, House of Hoop’s, and Footaction’s throughout New York City for several much anticipated upcoming sneaker releases. (scroll down for a video footage)
But Nothing Released Today
But wait just a second here — nothing released today (at least nothing worth getting). The twist here was that people stood in line for almost an hour (if lucky) just to enter their names for upcoming raffles that will allow you to buy one or more of the upcoming limited sneakers from Nike and Jordan Brand. The 39 degrees weather didn’t stop anyone from waiting inline while getting weird looks from passing pedestrians.
What Sneakers Were Being Raffled?
Incase you were wondering what sneakers Footlocker was raffling for today, here they are:
- Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Bred
- Nike Foamposite One “Oregon”
- Air Jordan 3LAB5 “Infrared”
- Nike Kobe Prelude IV
Here’s a different perspective of the situation. From the view across the street, notice the red rectangular highlight in the center of the image. This box represents the beginning of the line to the very end with occasional gaps left outside the store fronts to prevent blocking customers from entering.
