I got my pair of Gamma and Prelude 3 on hold for sure.....I dont think Nike did anything differ. its just a random selection/draw ...
That IS different. Before, it was the first send first serve, basis. This is where the RSVP bots prospered. If you send the DM longer than 5 seconds after the tweet, you're pretty out of luck. Now, there's been multiple reports of guys who sent in a DM right after the tweet and got nothing, and send another one 10-15 mins after, and got a DM back instantly. It's becoming more of a raffle now, which kills the effectiveness of the RSVP bots.
Hope you can flip the Prelude package for some good money nonetheless.
I personally loved the aesthetic of the Yeezy 2 (the 1s are the ugliest pieces of shit I've ever seen) but I absolutely hate what they stand for. That said if I could snag a pair of the red joints and resale wasn't over $1k I would rock the shit out of them.
