Last week, Foot Locker and Kyrie Irving introduced the #WeekOfGreatness, which celebrated the massive sneaker releases that began last Friday and ends this Saturday. No disrespect to any of the shoes that already dropped, but the most succulent meat of the #WeekOfGreatness starts tomorrow, with a list of top-shelf kicks in the name of Foamposite, Air Jordan, and LeBron hitting retail Wednesday morning.

@Yo_itsAaron I am with you on that need the Cloaks and i think this is the 3rd time and it mite be the last
Me too. Size 11.5. I got 3 tickets pulled from 3 different stores. Now I'm not a reseller, but in this case I might get the third pair and flip it so that second pair is almost free. This raffling business worked out for me. I usually order over the phone or online and have to wait over a week. This time I get to wear em the day they release! This is smart footlocker. Finishline you should follow their cue. It eliminates camping, long lines, and the problems that occur with them. I think footlocker has found the answer to camping and chaotic releases.
The majority of the foot lockers and their affiliate stores in my area used a raffling system for the Jordan bred 4s. You had to go in on sun. and mon, give your info, and your name was entered in a raffle. If they pulled your ticket, then you won the opportunity to buy the shoes in your size. Now all I have to do is show up to the stores that drew my name between 8 am and 6 pm on black fri and pay for them. No waking up early to order them or camping. However some footlockers, broke the rules, and allowed people to wait in line until 5 o'clock which was when they were supposed to start taking down names for the raffle. In stead they just gave out tickets with corresponding sizes on them to the people who waited in line. They did no raffle. Footlocker specifically said no one would be allowed to line up in front of their stores this past sunday, but I guess some footlockers are managed by people who feel they can set their own rules for the stores they work at. I'm glad some stores follow the rules and don't just sell off their size run to their friends. As I said though, I got super lucky and 3 different stores called me back to come in on fri.
sweet! this is a great giveaway. i did both tweets so hopefully i can win that gift card. wouldnt really help me for the 4s tho lol.
