A Tutorial On How To Enter Nike SNKRS Reservation Or Draw
Updated on June 22, 2021.
Nike uses an array of techniques to thwart bots from obtaining its most coveted drops, and it’s go-to platform is its SNKRS app where it employs a few different methods to enable everyday sneaker lovers greater access to its shoes. Before we go any further, it should be noted that at least in the United States, Nike has successfully shut down bots’ ability to succeed on the site.
This tutorial is designed to help first-time U. S. -based Nike sneaker lovers who are attempting to cop a shoe via a SNKRS, but have no idea how either works. SNKRS is used to sell Nike shoes and more recently apparel, but also Nike brands Converse and Jordan.
Be sure to open SNKRS a solid five minutes before the actual launch because it can be slow to load. The app is compatible with either Apple or Android smart phones. If it’s been a while since you last used SNKRS, provide time to make sure your size and payment info is saved.
Also, have on hand your SNKRS password and depending on your form of payment, your credit card’s three-digit security code or your Paypal password. SNKRS will often ask you to reenter your SNKRS password and also your credit card security code or Paypal password at time of purchase.
A lot of sneaker enthusiasts will attempt to win pairs using SNKRS on their desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone at the same time, but in order to do this you will need separate delivery addresses, email addresses and payment methods for each one. There are a whole host of other methods people attempt to use to game Nike’s system but we will not be reporting on them here.
Navigating Nike’s SNKRS App
Before the drop, start by downloading the SNKRS app and set up your Nike+ account. The app opens on the home screen (shown above), which shows “Feed, ” “In Stock” and “Upcoming” at the top of the app. “Feed” coverage includes background on highlighted silhouettes as well as brand partnerships and events. “In Stock” lists shoes currently available for purchase. Just like it states, the “Upcoming” tab shows a list of coming launch-date shoes.
On the bottom of the home page to the right of the “Home” icon, the “Discover” icon opens a feed with additional Nike-related stories, ranging from employee profiles to info on city-specific SNKRS Pass launches. To the right of “Discover” is “Notifications” where Nike delivers info on whether or not you won (“Got ‘Em! ) the shoe you were attempting to cop. It also includes information on placed orders.
How to Create a SNKRS Profile
The “Profile” icon is located to the right of “Notifications. ” Touch the icon and then touch the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner. Enter your first name, last name and email, followed by your gender and shoe size. If you want to be extra fancy, you can load a profile picture but it’s not required and you will have to grant Nike access to your phone’s images to do so.
Once you’ve loaded your info, the profile home page will show your name and a rectangle in the middle of the page that reads “Nike + Pass. ” When you touch the icon, it will bring up your personal QR (Quick Response) code, which is required to pick up certain types of launches in store. At times, Nike also uses the QR code to access special events and activities in its stores and at other locations.
Load a payment method (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Nike gift cards, Paypal and Apple Pay on iOS devices) along with your billing and shipping address. Just know that even if you pre-load this information, Nike may ask you to reenter size or payment info during your attempt to procure the shoe.
In SNKRS notification preferences, enable notifications and then choose the timing of your preference: one week, one day or 15 minutes before the launch.
Nike’s upcoming SNKRS feed includes a “Notify Me” button, which you can use to stay on top of launch-day product. A lot of the shoes you see in the feed are first-come-first served aka FCFS launches, which means once it goes live and the button changes to “Buy Now, ” whoever is able to purchase the shoes first, takes them home.
How To Purchase A SNKRS Drop
“Upcoming” is where all the action takes place for popular drops. At the time the shoe launches (usually 10:00 AM EST in the United States), the “Notify Me” button will change over to the price of the shoe. Hit the price button and you will be taken to a list of sizes. Choose your size and hit the “OK” button.
Hit the “$200” button, then choose size and hit the “OK” button. Note, the dreaded “Pending” status, which may appear after making payment.
You will then be taken to a page listing the size you selected, your address, form of payment and the total with shipping and tax. Hit the “Buy Now” button at which point you may be asked to enter your SNKRS password and possible your credit card security code or Paypal password. According to Nike, “If you want to use PayPal to order in the SNKRS App, we recommend saving PayPal as a payment method about 30 minutes before the sneakers drop. ” If you want to use Paypal, this is a step you should take for each launch.
Good question, if you’re successful you’ll see a “Got’em” message on SNKRS and will receive an order confirmation email. If you want, you can DM us your NikePlus email and we can check on our end if you were successful. (@nikestore) April 5, 2018
If you’re lucky, you will receive the famed “Got ‘Em” message in “Notifications” shortly after you make your payment. According to @nikestore (above), “If you’re successful you’ll see a “Got’ Em” message on SNKRS and will receive an order confirmation email. ”
If you didn’t win a pair, you may or may not receive a notification that you weren’t selected. In the case of the Jordan an Off-White drop on July 25, 2020, multiple people received a “pending” notice, which remained long after the shoe sold out.
How Long Does SNKRS Takes To Notify?
The answer is it depends on the launch. The two most common types of SNKRS launches are Draw or DAN and Let Everyone Order or LEO. For a Draw launch, Nike officially states it will notify within 24 hours, however, notification normally takes place with 15-30 minutes. For a LEO launch, you may be placed in a queue but as soon as you’re selected and your payment is processed you will be notified within two-10 minutes after launch time.
Types Of SNKRS Launches
1. Draw or DAN Launch: This is a system that makes use of a timed entry. When the launch goes live, the icon changes from “Notify me” to “Enter Draw. ” Nike will provide a countdown clock showing anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to hit the reserve icon.
If you haven’t saved your sizing and payment info, you will be asked to provide that. You may only enter a reserve draw once. If you attempt it a second time with the same account, you will be informed you’ve already entered.
Once the “Draw” ends, according to Nike you will be notified within 24 hours (though it’s usually within 15 minutes to an hour after the draw ends) whether or not you were selected to purchase the shoe. Nike will then process the payment and send you a notification through the app about when you can expect to receive the shoe.
3. Exclusive Access: SNKRS will sometimes notify members on the app or desktop that they’ve been given early access to a drop. Usually the push invite will come before or after a release, but it can also be provided randomly. Nike recently provided a tutorial on increasing one’s chances of receiving Exclusive Access.
According to the press release, Nike uses over 50 variables to determine which members are awarded Exclusive Access for a given product. Variables include prior SNKRS launch entries, content engagement and poll responses, among others. While the variables are combined in different ways for each Exclusive Access, Nike says its goal is to reward the most deserving members.
In a nutshell, turn on notifications and engage with SNKRS on a daily basis. If the app is inviting you to participate, whether through a poll or a heart button, do so. In the Discover part of the app, watch the videos and share them. For upcoming drops, tap Notify Me on the silhouettes you’re interested in. Of course don’t buy shoes you don’t want, but just know, Nike is tracking who is actually buying and those individuals will have a better chance of winning the very coveted drops than those who only open the app when a very high heat item drops.
Below is a video entirely dedicated to how one can gain Exclusive Access.
4. First Come First Serve or FCFS or FLOW: Nike rarely use FCFS with SNKRS launches. This is a launch type usually associated with non-SNKRS launches and just like it sounds, whoever submits their payment information first wins the item.
During a FCFS launch, you may receive a “You’re in line” or “Waiting for your turn” message. This is because Nike is processing the orders of the people who purchases the item before you and it is making sure it can fill the size you want once those orders are filled. You can close the SNKRS app and Nike will maintain your place in line, however, if you close the website, you will be removed from the queue. If you win on SNKRS, Nike will briefly hold the pair for you.
For FCFS, you will be notified immediately after the payment clears. Confirmation will be sent in the SNKRS Inbox under notifications and also via email.
It’s worth noting that just because the launch isn’t featured on SNKRS doesn’t mean it’s not coveted. Nike has used FCFS with Fear of God launches as well as the recent Naomi Osaka capsule. Sometimes Nike also employs FCFS when it launches surprise restocks.
3. Let Everyone Order or LEO: Other than DAN, this is Nike’s most popular type of SNKRS launch. This is akin to a FCFS serve launch in that everyone can order, however, behind the scenes Nike uses a secret sauce during processing to select winners. There is a lot of debate around how Nike processes a LEO launch with some saying purchases are cut off two minutes after the drop with Nike then going back and using various algorithms to make selections from the queue of shoppers. However, nobody knows for sure and it’s a good bet Nike is constantly refining how it makes selections.
5. Reserve Launch: SNKRS can be used on any device but if the launch is a “Reserve” requiring an in-store pick up, you will need to use a device that allows your location to be accessible. “Reserve” launches are FCFS so it’s a big help if your location is turned on and you have your size and payment pre-loaded and ready to go as soon as the drop is live.
Nike began using a SNKRS “Reserve” system in 2015 (starting with a Jordan 1 silhouette) for its very coveted launches. For store pick-up “Reserve” launches (more info from here), the icon at launch time will change from “Notify Me” to “Reserve. ” In order to be considered, your phone’s location will need to be turned on. Push the “Reserve” icon and then choose a nearby pick-up location. Some but not all “Reserve” drops offer the option of shipping. Because of the pandemic Nike has backed off of he use of “Reserve” through 2020.
If you missed out on a “Reserve” launch, sometimes it pays to visit the store stocking the shoe because pairs that aren’t picked up after a certain time are made available to purchase FCFS.
6. SNKRS Pass is a location-specific launch for a select city or group of cities, which at the moment are mostly limited to Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles or New York. Nike will often employ this type of launch in association with very limited edition, sometimes referred to as “Friends & Family” launches, which are then followed up by a wider launch of the same shoe. Often this type of launch is announced with little warning akin to a “Shock Drop” (see below).
If the shoe is an in-store, pick up drop, Nike will process the payment and let you know details on when/where to pick up in “Notifications. ” In order to take the shoes home, you will need to show your SNKRS QR code plus provide official photo identification that matches your winning SNKRS account.
7. Shock Drop: Nike will sometimes surprise drop its most coveted launches prior to a previously-stated, official launch date. It will also Shock Drop shoes that aren’t included in its “Upcoming” calendar.
Nike’s default launch posture is secretive to the extreme and it won’t confirm or deny any rumors about upcoming Shock Drop launches. Until the drop is announced on an official Nike social media platform, in Nike’s eyes it simply doesn’t exist.
Once in a great while, Nike will Shock Drop a shoe that can only be accessed by completing a task. In the case of Nike, Off-White and Serena Williams‘ “Shock Drop, ” the silhouette was featured in the app’s “Discover” feed with a “Behind the Shoe” story. In order to cop the shoe, the user had to rub an image featuring a blank version of Off-White’s signature plastic hang tag (above left) to make the copy appear. Once the copy appeared, the user was granted access to purchase the shoe.
To stay on top of coveted drops, there are numerous Twitter accounts that will notify you of Exclusive Access notifications and Shock Drops. Two of them even have their own apps: @solelinks and @j23app. You can also follow Nike’s @nikestore account but be aware it doesn’t announce every single launch.
Keep in mind that the SNKRS app is far from perfect. It can be glitchy and if you visit the @nikestore feed you can see it’s filled with people complaining about usage issues. Most of the time Nike recommends signing out and signing back in or reinstalling the app. If you’re still having problems and there is stock available, you can also call 800-806-6453 from 4:00 AM-11:00 PM PST seven days a week.
May the cop gods be with you!
What if I’m still waiting in line after 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45minutes etc?
November 17, 2017 – 2:04 PM. / Comments Off on Off-White x NikeLab “The Ten” Release Guide and FAQ
The sneaker collection of the year is finally making its way online this Monday, November 20. This release will be exclusive to in Canada and will not release anywhere else online. In this guide we will cover pricing, stock, tips, tricks and so much more. Lets get to it! What shoes are releasing and when? The Jordan 1, Blazer Mid and HyperDunk Flyknit all release at 9AM EST
The VaporMax Flyknit, Presto and Air Max 90 all release at 9:30 AM EST
The Air Max 97, Zoom Fly and Air Force 1 Low all release at 10AM EST
The links to purchase all of them will be shared on Twitter one hour in advance of release.
How much are they? Where are the links? Jordan 1 ($255) LINK: Blazer Mid ($175) LINK: Hyperdunk Flyknit ($265) LINK: VaporMax Flyknit ($330) LINK: Presto ($215) LINK: / Air Max 90 ($215) LINK: Air Max 97 – $255 – LINK: Zoom Fly ($230) LINK: / Air Force 1 Low ($230) LINK: How do the shoes fit? The Jordan 1, Blazer Mid, Hyperdunk Flyknit and VaporMax Flyknit all fit TTS
Presto I would go TTS but if you are a half size I recommend going up a half size.
Air Max 90 and Air MAx 97 fit TTS but half size up also works. Do not go half size down.
The Zoom Fly fits small so please go a half size up. TTS would be very snug.
Air Force 1 Low – Half size down, TTS would be too roomy
Why are they releasing 30 minutes apart? My assumption is Nike has done this to ensure everyone has a fair chance to attempt to purchase all pairs and to also give the system time to spread out the server load for what is likely going to be insane demand.
How many pairs can I purchase? You are allowed to purchase one (1) pair, per sneaker, per person. If you are lucky enough you can purchase one of each item from the entire collection online. If two different people in your house purchase the same shoe this is okay,
Will the release by FCFS or a queue? The release will be the same “wait in line” style queue system that is normally used on high level launches. More information on how this queue works can be found in the rest of this guide.
What sizes will have online? I am not aware of what sizes will be available but it should be the standard men’s size 7 or 8 to size 12 or 13. Nike is known for having more sizes as small as men’s 4 and as big as men’s 16 for their online releases but this is not guaranteed.
What’s your number one tip? Be patient. Some of you will purchase and be out of the queue in 5 to 10 minutes and some of you may wait up to an hour. The demand for these is so high that it will vary by system load and stock. If you want the shoe badly enough, grab some coffee and prepare to stick around as long as it takes.
Do I need to refresh the countdown screen? DO NOT REFRESH the countdown timer on Nike prior to release. Just let the clock tick down to zero. Please make sure your countdown time is synced with your computer.
For example if the time on the countdown reads 30 minutes to go but it is actually 20 minutes prior to release this means your clock is out of sync and you need to refresh in that situation.
What happens when the shoes release? DO NOT REFRESH the countdown timer on Nike prior to release. Once the countdown timer hits zero you will see a size selector appear, choose your size and press add to cart. Once you add to cart you will be put in a “wait in line” based queue system. DO NOT REFRESH THIS SCREEN.
Should I refresh the “Wait in Line” screen? NO! DO NOT REFRESH THIS SCREEN!
What if I’m still waiting in line after 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45minutes etc? Keep waiting in line! Never give up your spot in the Nike queue until we confirm it is sold out. As long as your screen says you are in line that means you have a legitimate shot to purchase the shoes no matter how long it takes.
No matter what, DO NOT REFRESH the screen when you are in line. If another release starts you should still keep waiting in line for the one prior.
How many tabs or browsers can I use? I highly recommend using one tab per browser per shoe maximum. You can also use one incognito tab (private) per browser as well for a total of 2 tabs per browser. I currently plan to use 4 browsers with one normal tab and one incognito tab giving me a total of 8 chances per shoe. I would stop at around 8, you don’t want to risk the chance of nike flagging you as a bot and blocking you from the site.
Can I also wait in line on mobile? Yes but turn off your WiFi so it registers your entry under another IP address. I also find queues work faster on mobile if WiFi is off.
How am I going to keep track of 3 release at the same time? This is a good question. If all you have is one laptop or one screen, its going to be tough to keep track of all your tabs. The biggest issue at hand is the fact if you are not instant to click “check out” when your pair is reserved for you then you run the risk of losing out. My advice is prioritize what you want. There is three releases happening at a time, pick the one that is most important to you and stick to that one.
Does Nike do cart holds or do I need to check out ASAP? Please read the following VERY carefully. Once you are in the queue and your size is ready for check out you need to click “CHECK OUT” ASAP. There is no cart hold UNTIL you have reached the “Shipping” screen. If you see your cart screen then you are not receiving a cart hold. The cart hold does not begin until you are filling out your shipping info. It is VERY important that you do not lose sight of your “wait in line” browsers because you need to click check out asap once you are through the queue or you risk losing your size.
Is it possible to cart more than one shoe at a time? Lets say you wait in line for 2 different shoes in the same browser, it is very possible you get lucky enough that you are able to check out both pairs at once. But the key to this happening is that Nike prompts you to purchase both at the EXACT same time. If it doesn’t happen at the same time then you could risk losing one of the pairs. In all likely hood, it would take a small miracle for this to happen!
How important is it to click “check out” right away? VERY IMPORTANT. I can’t emphasize enough how important the timing is from waiting in line to clicking check out is. During this time, if you are too slow to click check out, it is possible some people get errors saying their pair is sold out. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled to any queues you are in line for!
Okay so I see the shipping screen now what? You have 20 minutes to fill out all your information and pay. I DO NOT recommend taking all 20 minutes. Try and finish as quick as you can but there is no huge rush…just be in and out in a few minutes.
What if the check out system is not loading for me or my credit card isn’t working? Pray. Refresh and try again. Try another credit card. Try paypal. Refresh some more. There’s not much help I can provide you at this step of the process. I have in the past had an issue where the checkout screen didn’t load and refreshing worked for me.
What do I do if I get “Sold Out” while waiting in the queue? If you are told your size is sold out at this point you need to refresh the page. If your size is still listed, try joining the queue. If it is not listed, refresh again and look for your size. Repeat this process over and over until you can either purchase your size directly or you can wait in line again.
It’s so annoying I can see the size listed but when I try to add to cart it says “Sold out”, it sucks but this is Nike holding the sizes for someone in line. This is why you should always wait in line. The best thing you can do if you are not in line is refresh and try again.
How do I know when sizes are officially all sold out? I will tweet when it’s time to stop trying because sizes are sold out. If the page is removed from the website and says “product not found” then this is another sign that it is sold out.
What if I get “access denied” on we refresh a lot the system can block you sometimes. What you need to do at this point is CLEAR all of your COOKIES AND CACHE from your history. Close the browser, and then reopen it. You should be good to go!
I paid but I have yet to get a confirmation email. What’s wrong? Nothing is wrong, the emails can be slow to send sometimes because of how busy the website traffic is. Just be patient and you will get the email!
