How to Find, Enter, and Win Sneaker Raffles – Sole Retriever
Whether you’re an experienced sneaker aficionado or just an average guy (or gal) looking to take a W on a hot upcoming release, it’s time you learn about sneaker raffles – what they are, how they work, and how Sole Retriever and our brand new mobile app simplify them for tting the Stage Times they are a-changin’. Ultimately, getting your hands on a pair of a fresh upcoming sneaker release in today’s world is not how it once was. Gone (for the most part) are the days of waiting in crazy lines and camping out on crowded street corners. Oh, you want to try your luck online on release day instead, you say? Best of luck in your fight against the determined infantry of botters. A combination of these factors, coupled with growing concern over the spread of COVID-19, has led many retailers to turn to an alternative launch method for their most highly coveted kicks – sneaker are Sneaker Raffles? A sneaker raffle or “draw” is when a retailer provides customers with the opportunity to win the right to purchase a pair of sneakers. Typically, the raffle mechanic is used when demand for the shoe exceeds supply. Raffles tend to level the playing field by giving everyone who enters an equal chance of being able to purchase the latest Yeezy’s, Jordan’s, Nike’s and other hot kicks for retail. Once the raffle period ends, the retailer will then select the winners at random and alert them of their winning entry. The ways in which these sneaker raffles are held vary in both their entry and retrieval methods. To make it easy, Sole Retriever has created a list of the different sneaker raffle types and retrieval methods. We’ve also included a brief description of how each of them QuestionsDo you have to pay for sneaker raffles? Yes. When you win a sneaker raffle, you are winning the opportunity to purchase the product; you’re not winning the product for free (unless otherwise stated) are the chances of winning sneaker raffles?

Enter more raffles. The best method for increasing your odds at winning a raffle for a new sneaker launch is to enter as many raffles as you can. The more raffles you enter, the more chances you have to win! Raffle TypesAlmost every sneaker raffle will fall into one of four main categories – In Store, Online, Social, or In-App. In-Store – The first major raffle type is classified as “In-Store. ” This typically involves an in-person pickup of the sneaker being raffled. Before entering, be sure that you’ll be able to pick-up the sneakers from the store on the dedicated pickup day. You want to ensure you’re able to claim your pair if you are selected as a lucky winner! Online – If a raffle is under the “Online” category, that generally means that it involves postage (or shipping). The winners of said raffle will have the sneakers shipped to them. Thus, you do not need to be physically present in-store to claim a winning entry for this raffle type! Some online raffles require upfront charge or payment, so be sure to read each individual raffle’s terms and information before submitting your entries. Social – Raffles that fall under the “Social” category are those in which the entering process takes place on social media. Typically, the store holding the raffle will use its specific social media page to hold the raffle and share the entry details. Almost always, this means the store’s official Twitter or Instagram account is where the raffle will be hosted. Most social raffle entry requirements include liking, commenting, or sharing the post. Once you navigate from Sole Retriever to any social raffle, be sure to read the store’s post and follow their exact instructions. This way you can rest assured that your entry is valid! In-App – Some stores have dedicated mobile applications where they announce and host their raffles. For a comprehensive list of the stores which have dedicated raffle app’s and where to download them, check out our article on the Top Ten Apps to Enter Sneaker Raffles. Similar to online raffles, some In-App raffles may require an upfront charge. Others, however, will give you the opportunity to claim, should you win. Moral of the story, always make sure to read the instructions and terms for each raffle you enter! Retrieval Methods Every raffle will possess a given retrieval method by which winners will purchase and receive the sneaker they’ve won the raffle for. There are two different retrieval methods – Shipping and Pick-up. Shipping – If a raffle has shipping (or postage), this means that the retailer will ship the pairs to the winners, upon purchase. This method does not require any sort of in-person retrieval. Be sure to check each raffle’s shipping guidelines & restrictions to ensure you qualify to enter.

How to Win Sneakers Straight from SNKRS and Nike.com
OK, I’ll be honest:
The title of the post sounds too good to be true, and to some extent it is.
It doesn’t change the fact that you now have to win sneakers from Nike.
Check out our beginner’s guide to how to sell sneakers once you win them, but for now, Read on to learn how you can win…
How to Succeed on Nike SNKRS in 2021
SNKRS logo –
A lot has changed since the very first days of buying sneakers online.
Following the first days of online drops, it became exponentially harder to secure a pair of sneakers for the average individual. Sellout times got shorter and shorter, making people, including the retailers of themselves, question whether or not the users were human or not.
Turns out, some of these record times were not humans with fast fingers, but clever humans using software that they or others built to benefit them.
Manufacturers now have resorted to letting people win a chance to buy the shoe–more on this later.
Sophisticated sneaker bots have come on to the scene, causing many brands and companies to wage war against those who make use of the nifty software, which still works in the hands of those with expert knowledge.
(We just launched a private group for high level sneaker resellers for a limited time for the month of June–click here to check it out)
When the demand continued to remain astronomically high and supply got lower, resale prices skyrocketed, bringing outsiders onto the scene who wanted to play the game so they could make a few dollars (in more cases than you would think, a few hundred thousand dollars).
UNDERSTANDING THE RESALE GAME BETTER
Brands understood that they couldn’t ban reselling, because it’s not illegal, and it’s really hard to tell whether or not someone is a customer intending to keep the shoes or flip them quickly.
Many strategies have been implemented, from the CAPTCHA “are you human? ” tests to more technical algorithms that monitor behavior of website users, blocking orders from users that resemble bots, even if they do pass the CAPTCHA test.
Other retailers such as Supreme, who stock coveted clothing items that resell for much more than they retailed for have boosted up their defense against bot users, who are almost always resellers running big business.
Websites like Yeezysupply, adidas and even footsites like Footlocker and Eastbay are known now to cancel orders even after they’ve been confirmed and paid for if they look like they may have been executed by a sneaker bot. Because of this, buyers are becoming more careful about how they are acquiring the envied merch.
In addition to all the techy stuff, changes in the buying process of some rare shoes with high resale value have eliminated the traditional checkout process altogether.
Winning in Raffles
Raffles have been the most common anti bot strategy, and as a sneaker fan or reseller, this is something you absolutely need to know, and we’re glad to share tips here.
Once you follow boutique brands on Instagram or on their newsletters, you will begin to see chances to win a pair of shoes that will be worth top dollar, but to do so you’ll probably have to mildly embarrass yourself by tagging three friends in the comments below a photo as well as the size you desire, along with following their account and likely their email list as well.
Fortunately, there’s a brand that lets you forgo all this nonsense, and simply win them straight from the source.
Nike is the best company to become familiar with this raffling process of winning shoes from them, because nearly every shoe worth getting from Nike will end up being raffled through these methods that you will now become familiar with.
Regular shoes don’t have a drawing for them, so for collectors and resellers, seeing that a shoe is on a Nike raffle is a good indicator that those kicks are valuable.
When you win the raffle, you don’t win the shoes for free, but you win an automatic purchase of the shoes, which is pretty awesome especially when they’re instantly worth more than you got them for.
Here are the 2 ways that you can get shoes straight from Nike:
1. Nike SNKRS App
Download Nike’s SNKRS App, and create your Nike+ account. Make sure you have push notifications enabled, and every now and then you’ll get notified that there’s a draw for a limited shoe that is probably worth money on the aftermarket, whether your intention is to collect or sell.
Over time, you will win a release. When this happens, your payment method will automatically be charged. You’ll have already entered all of your payment info and address ahead of time, so there’s basically no checkout process.
It’s pretty awesome, and Nike is one of the fastest retailers when it comes to shipping, I’ve gotten shoes in as soon as 2 days after I placed the order.
2. Nike Launch drawings
For a better user experience for those who still prefer desktop browsing, going on Nike’s official website is the option of choice. You’ll have to know where to go though, you need to get to the section of their website that allows you to register for Launch Drawings for rare releases.
It seems like they intentionally make it hard to find at first, so we’ll make it easy for you and give you the direct link to Nike’s Launch Drawings right here (this is the US Link, but if you’re not in the US and the link doesn’t automatically route you to your country’s website, simply google the phrase “Nike Launch Drawing”).
You’ll also have the option to pick up the shoes that you won from a store near you in person so you can get them in hand right away.
If the draw is a location exclusive that you don’t live near, there is an advanced workaround for this that’s discussed in our reseller’s field guide.
Both of these above methods require that you have a Nike account.
PRO TIP: USING MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
Having one account is great and I and many others have won profitable drops without more than one account.
Multiple accounts give you as many more chances of getting the shoes as the number of accounts you have.
If you have 5 Nike accounts or even 10 or 15, you can greatly increase your odds of getting one pair and you’ll also put yourself in a position for getting multiple pairs for insane profits.
Many people sell Nike accounts across social media and eBay, but because of rampant scams, you might as well cut your risk and learn how to make your own accounts.
Advanced strategies like multiple Nike accounts and more are discussed in the highly reviewed 5 part Hypemaster Playbook.
