Sneaker Raffles Common Questions!
What Are Sneaker Raffles?
Sneaker raffles or sneaker draws are actual raffles that sneaker retailers conduct. They give you opportunities to win the RIGHT to buy sneakers. Kinda like winning a reservation on a sneaker at retail!
Why Are They Used?
Retailers resort to sneaker raffles when the demand/supply chain doesnâ€™t add up. In other words, when the demand is so much higher than the supply – AKA mega hype! They level the playing field and give everyone an equal copping chance.
Do I Have to Pay to Enter Sneaker Raffles?
No, but in some cases, you can redeem certain points in apps like Finish Line to get more entries.Â
Are the Sneakers I Win in a Raffle FREE?
No. When you win a sneaker raffle, you win a CHANCE to purchase the sneakers! Unless theyâ€™re giving out free kicks!
What Are the Chances of Winning Raffles?
Well, your chances of winning sneaker raffles depend on a few factors! First, how many pairs are available for the release. Second, how high the demand is, thus how high the competition. And third, how many people are also joining the raffle!
Can I Increase My Chances of Winning the Raffles?
Yes! The best method to increase your chances of winning is to enter as many as you can! More raffles, more chances. And, you can also use raffle bots!
The Finish Line app allows multiple entries at the same time! When you purchase items off their app, you get points that you can redeem for raffle tickets! You can STACK as many tickets as youâ€™d like. This is something you can do with the Footlocker app as well – by redeeming FLX app points for head starts!

Most Popular Types!
There are three different types of raffles that change the entire process of entering and winning the draw. Weâ€™ve got In-Store, Â online, social, and in-app raffles! The main difference is in the retrieval method – AKA how you claim your prize!Â
Obviously, these types of sneaker raffles involved in-person pickups of the raffled sneakers. So, you have to make sure you can pick up the sneaker from the dedicated store on pick-up day!
Online Sneaker Raffles
Online raffles are ONLINE! Duh! This means you do not have to be physically present in-store to claim your sneakers. But, they will have them shipped to YOU!
