[Guide] Tips on copping a new release.: Sneakers – Reddit
[Guide] Tips on copping a new, this is my second guide and we will be going over tips and tricks on how to cop that awesome pair of sneakers during let me start by saying, be smart about this. Obviously some releases will be more hyped & popular than others. Mainly limited releases are the ones you will be interested in and will need these tips & tricks get started… There are a few different methods of copping on release ineStores (Standing in line)OnlineThere are a bunch of places to get new releases online. You could go straight to the supplier such as Nike, Adidas, Reebok, etc. I have found that these online stores are most always prepared for a release. I order a lot with Nike and they try to help as much as possible with such things as Twitter accounts, live help, etc. I’ve seen many websites go down on big releases (anyone remember the 2011 Concord release? ) and that is usually not the problem with these retailers because they impart expect massive numbers and have the systems to handle the could also try to cop a pair through retailers such as Footlocker, Eastbay, etc. Basically stick to the main websites because as mentioned above, they will be prepared for a massive amount of orders and since they are a bigger retailer, they will most likely have the bandwidth to cope over the smaller lets get into pre-orders. Most retailers will not offer pre-orders but you can find some websites, even on Ebay, where you place your order a few weeks in advance for a premium and they will do all the work for you. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS METHOD. I’ve heard of some good stories dealing with these pre-order sites but it is super easy to get scammed, so avoid them. It may seem tempting, but resist are some universal tips for online ordering:Have an account with your information already registered and logged the webpage open and ready before any twitter acounts for updates. (i. e @NikeStore, @Eastbay, @FLUnlocked)Have a back-up site opened up in another tab AND ‘t get lucky the first time? Keep checking sites for restocks. Restocks happen mainly when people ordered the wrong size or had no luck in the reselling market so they return the sneakers. It will never happen for the really big releases but I recently got lucky with a restock on the Nike More Uptempo Olympics. Don’t give up! Stores/Standing in LineLet me start by saying I have never copped a pair of sneakers by waiting in line, but I’ve read what some other people have said and put this you haven’t caught the theme of my guides, they all revolve around being prepared and being smart; this is no different. If it is a mega release like the 2011 Retro Concords, seriously consider if you have the time to stand in line for 24+ hours and consider trying your luck online. If it is not a mega release, you have a good chance of getting in line early in the morning and getting a I said, this is all about being prepared and being smart. Call your local stores and ask them some questions:How many pairs do you plan to order? (Some stores will not disclose this info unfortunately)Will size ‘#’ be available? Will they be open early? Are you offering wristbands? Have you been getting a lot of calls regarding this release? How many people are you expecting? Are you allowing lines to form inside the store? What time? I think you see where these are going. Just be stores offer wristbands which will get you in front of anyone that doesn’t have one and usually are given out a day prior to the release. This is to reduce “mobs” and extremely long lines by allowing people go early, get a wristband with a number on it, etc. So talk to your store as mentioned and see if they offer these wristbands. I have heard some stories of stores not mentioning this unless asked, and it never hurts to ask! If you plan on standing on line for any amount of time, be ready to do so. Some people bring chairs, which is sometimes not allowed but a great idea. Bring some drinks and food, dress appropriately, and go to the bathroom beforehand (#1 and riously though). As usual, communication is key even with this method. Ask the store workers to notify everyone when sizes sell out, this is to avoid you standing in line for hours just to figure out size ‘#’ sold out an hour nally, build a repor with your local stores. They will be more willing to help a familiar face/someone they know with info and possibly holding a shoe for you, as they have that priviledge. (Thanks to /u/bware113)Restocking takes place in store too, only not as common. Mainly when people pick-up the wrong size and return it for a refund. As I mentioned, it is not common at all, but always worth a try! That’s all I got for now. I will keep adding on to it and if you have anything to add put it in the comments!

Just over a year ago Foot Locker announced a brand new App Launch Reservation Procedure, allowing its most loyal customers first dibs at high-prized footwear. After being available in only select cities, Foot Locker has announced that its App Launch Reservation Procedure is now nationwide. Yeezys, NMDs, Ultra Boosts, Jordan Retros, and more will all be pair of their reservation catalog, so if you’re a frequent shopper of Foot Locker, this is definitely good news to hear.
What separates Foot Locker’s reservation procedures from other retailers is that it awards “Head Starts”, which act as extra time or opportunities for loyal customers to reserve product.
