Raffles are physical or virtual lotteries in which you win access to buy the most limited editions of clothes or sneakers from certain brands, designers or artists. In these lotteries, winning means you are allowed to buy the product. The raffles are a game of chance, so it is no longer about being able to pay for an exclusive limited edition, but about being lucky enough to have access to the product.
The specifics may vary depending on the store or website, as each seller has total freedom to establish its own rules. That is why, if participating in a raffle, we recommend that you carefully read the conditions as well as all the requirements to ensure that your participation is valid.
Although each store can establish its own participation requirements, there are certain points in common that define a raffle, which are detailed below:
- Raffles usually take place several days or even weeks before the release of the product.
- Participation in a raffle is totally free of charge.
- You must be of legal age to participate.
- You can only participate once per model. There are usually two types of raffles (online and offline raffles) and you must decide which one you want to participate in before registering. If you cheat and a duplicate entry is detected, your participation will be automatically canceled.
- You must correctly choose your size. Changes to the selected size are not accepted.
- If you participate and are one of those selected, you will be given the option to buy the product. A raffle does NOT mean you get a pair of sneakers for free. Winning the raffle will only give you the option to buy the exclusive product. In other words, if you win, you will have to pay for the product in order to receive it. Of course, you will buy the model at the actual price set by the brands, and not at the exorbitant resale price.
- If you have been selected, you will be notified the same day or in the days following the release.
