You've read the first paragraph and you're on the fence because the term Sneaker Raffle doesn't mean anything to you? Then you are at the right place. Due to the high demand, it has been established in our industry to raffle purchase options for limited sneakers via so-called Sneaker Raffles. So if you participate successfully, you don't win the shoe, but you can buy it as a lucky winner, while many participants go empty-handed.
There are different types of Sneaker Raffles:
Online Sneaker Raffle: via the online store of a store/manufacturer, or, as in our case via the Asphaltgold app, interested sneakerheads can participate in Raffles during a certain period and win the purchase option. Winners get the shoe automatically sent in the Asphaltgold app, the payment runs via authorization when participating. This way, we protect the app from bots and ensure that shipping is fast!
Instore Sneaker Raffle: at Asphaltgold you regularly have the chance to participate in raffles for current releases in our store in Darmstadt. Asphaltgold defines a participation period and all interested parties can register with their email address and sneaker size. After the participation period our in-store team will draw the random winners - they will then be notified by email and can pick up their shoes in the store, pay and take them home. Psst: the chances at Instore Sneaker Raffles are usually quite good!
Instore Live Raffle: live raffles are raffles that take place on-site at the store, but are drawn live. Everyone who wants to participate to win the option to buy the shoe will show up at the store at a pre-defined time and can enter. When the time is up, the winners for each size will then be randomly drawn and the lucky ones will be able to receive their pairs directly! For the Nike Air Jordan 1 High OG Retro *Lost & Found* there was an Instore Life Raffle at Asphaltgold in Darmstadt last time!
