Seriously let's try to keep this positive, or at least civil. Let's keep the Sodium levels to a minimum here. There's nothing wrong with a dude winning (the ability to purchase) a pair of Yeezy 2s fairly.
Here is my striking out story.
I was at the Wowsan Nikestore Yeezy 2 release in Seoul. Word was they had gotten about 50 pairs total, but this was the only store in Korea that had gotten them. The plan was to release only 700 raffle tickets starting at 1PM and start the raffle at 7PM. Due to my not living in Seoul, I got there at around 11:40AM only to find a line up about three blocks deep. I line up still because I counted about 400-500 people and thought I had a shot. Unfortunately, they had a large lineup since early and actually had some people camp out for raffle tickets, so they started giving out tickets early to clear the line. Turns out I was more like #900 in line. It was an interesting crowd out there, but still saw a lot of heat on a lot of feet.
Sucks that I didn't get a chance, but everything was handled pretty well and done fairly.
The raffle tickets were really nice as well. They were in the shape of a pair of Yeezy 2s and you had to lift the little strap to see your raffle number.
For me, it's the platinum pair over the the black pair even though living in Korea that platinum pair will turn to Iron quickly. From the videos and pictures I've seen, the details show up more on the plats. Personally, I would be able to wear them more often than the black yeezy 2s.
Anyways, I hope to see some nice pics from the other NTers (new and old) who lucked out from NDC soon. I struck out, but it's all good seeing as how there is always another pair on the horizon.
