Why You Can’t Win on Nike



ICYMI: Legend Blue 11’s (such a stupid nickname) restocked on Nike via their semi-new raffle system.

ICYMI: I lost again.

If you tried to get a pair today, there’s probably a solid chance that you lost as well. It’s either that, or I’m just really unlucky when it comes to this stuff. Now that I think about it, I have a pretty bad track record when it comes to raffles. I should probably just stop getting my hopes up from now on.

However, if you’re like me and have successfully struck out on all of Nike’s raffle entries, you probably want to know why you haven’t been blessed with a pair yet. Is it just luck of the draw? Not likely. Today we’re going to take a look at some possible reasons why you can’t win on Nike:

  1. You’ve been wearing a lot of Adidas stuff lately.
  2. Nike checked your IP, and saw you’ve been looking up the new Yeezy Boost release info.
    • (You ain’t getting those either, fam).
  3. You’re a reseller.
    • Nike execs stay lurking on social media. Tread carefully.
  4. You’re not a reseller
    • Nice guys finish last, I guess.
  5. You have been unknowingly banned from Nike.
    • (That explains why I can never cop any new releases!!)
  6. You’re not a big enough hypebeast.
    • C’mon son. You only get these jawnz if you’re planning to stunt in them on IG.

If none of these reasons apply to you, I don’t know what to tell you. As I’ve said before, I’m all for shutting down bots and giving people a fair chance at copping a pair of kicks, but with this raffle system, I’m not sure if I even have a chance at all. At least with a normal release, I can hop on SNKRS and trick myself into thinking that I’m next in some virtual line that probably doesn’t even exist.

Until something changes with Nike’s releases again, I’ll keep taking these virtual L’s.
