I stopped by the mall near work and home to get raffle tickets. I'd never line up hours upon hours for guaranteed tickets though. I had 8 tix but no luck on call backs. I only buy some. Some of the colorways that aren't OGs are so terrible looking but kids still buy them up.
It's pretty out of control now. Its like an all week long madness. This was why they stopped doing Wed releases. When some of the 11s dropped back in 2001 or so, cats would just skip school to buy them.

You gotta come with a game plan nowadays with all of the bots sniping sizes within seconds, if that long. I was able to get a pair from nikestore.com though.
