The Raffle and the Drop

In the realm of sneakers, two terms ignite the passion of collectors and enthusiasts worldwide: raffles and drops. Today, we'll delve into the world of these coveted releases and uncover the excitement they bring to the sneakerhead experience, stay with me, I’m going to explain to you.


The Raffle

Let’s start with the raffle. A raffle is a method of sale employed by brands and retailers to distribute limited-edition or exclusive sneakers. The idea behind it is to create an equal opportunity for all sneakerheads by utilizing a random draw system. Interested individuals enter online, cross their fingers, and hope to be selected as one of the lucky few to purchase the coveted pair. This element of chance adds an extra layer of excitement to the sneaker acquisition process.

The Drop

Next, we have the drop. A drop refers to the moment when a brand releases a new sneaker model, typically in limited quantities, at a specific predetermined time. These drops are often announced beforehand, generating a buzz and anticipation among sneaker enthusiasts. When the drop day arrives, the sneakers become available online or in select physical stores, and that's when the frenzy begins. Sneakerheads worldwide rush to online platforms or line up outside stores, eager to get their hands on the pair they've been eyeing.


I recently had a personal experience with Nike's SNKRS app. Attempting to cop the highly sought-after Jordan 1 Travis Scott Olive. Unfortunately, I fell short in my quest to secure these coveted kicks. My story is not unique, as when it comes to such exclusive and limited releases, the demand far exceeds the supply. With thousands of sneakerheads who want this pair that stocks are quickly depleted, success rates can be slim.

It's important to recognize that brands and retailers often release only a small number of pairs, intentionally creating scarcity and desirability around these sneakers. This strategy also fuels the competitive nature of drops, as thousands of individuals compete for a limited number of shoes.


Despite the challenges, the sneaker world is constantly buzzing with new opportunities. Stay updated on upcoming drops and raffles, explore different online platforms, and keep an eye on local sneaker shops. There are also vibrant sneakerhead communities where tips and tricks are shared to increase one's chances of success during these hyped releases.

As for me, I'll be delving deeper into Nike's SNKRS app in an upcoming post. I'll explain its functionalities, highlight some interesting features. Unfortunately, I have to address some of its shortcomings, after all, no platform is perfect.

Despite the occasional setback, the sneakerhead spirit remains strong. We'll keep dreaming, collecting and appreciating this incredible sneaker culture. And who knows, maybe next time, luck will be on our side, and we'll secure that grail pair we've been chasing!
