Jumpman has been in a slump lately with even Gold Retro 11’s sitting on a shelf. A few years back long lines at first come first served releases made Foot Locker re-evaluate their launch procedures. Lotteries became the standard for copping a pair of kicks and often lead to accusations of fixed raffles. Well it’s been a while since we even posted about a Jordan raffle, but the “Banned” Jordan Retro 1 has ticket lines buzzing again.
With a relatively modest, but not dismal stock list for the banned 1s(style 555088-001) and a renewed thirst for OG Jordans has people jumping from store to store trying to get a pair locked down. Resale is already above $300, while the 2013 OG Bred 1’s have been slowly slipping.
Tickets are available at Foot Locker and Foot Action Monday August 29th and Tuesday August 30th. Winners will be notified Wednesday August 31st by phone. Don’t worry, these raffles are probably still rigged.
