Nike Sportswear’s 21 Mercer flagship location in New York just tweeted in confirmation of the Saturday, June 9th release of the ‘Pure Platinum’ and ‘Solar Red’ Air Yeezy 2s. The only way to get a pair is through the new Twitter RSVP that’ll pop up at a time TBD on Thursday, and it turns out that they’re not the only New York retailer ready to go on Saturday who’s doing a raffle-claim in advance of the big day. Ronnie Fieg’s Kith will offer raffles between Noon Thursday and 7pm Friday at the Manhattan location, where you’ll be able to put down your data to secure a pair at either that store or the Brooklyn location. There’s a strict 1-per customer limit in effect with this release, but aside from the pairs released, Kith is also giving away a pair at the end of the raffle Friday night, to be notified by social media and with a pickup in your chosen size on Saturday morning. US residents can enter on the Kith homepage; will you be entering multiple raffles or otherwise branching out to ensure you’ll get those hotly anticipated Nike Air Yeezy 2s on June 9th?
