Air Jordan 1 Banned Store Raffle? Is it Fair And What Can You Do To Score A Pair?

Sharing is caring!

I got a total of  six Air Jordan 1 Banned Store Raffle tickets  for a chance to win a single pair. A lot of people are whining and complaining about how unfair the raffle system is, so is it really unfair?  Before I answer this question,  let us  speculate on what may be taking place behind the curtains prior to stores running  raffles. I will assume that most stores may get between 24 to 36 pairs of these Banned 1. Most local stores probably get 2 pairs of the mid sizes ( size 8-11) and a single pair of the bigger sizes (12-13). Also keep in mind that this is a hyped release, so the manager and his assistant will definitely get their sizes,so will the sales assistants. Basically you are down to maybe 28 pairs (I’m assuming the store had 36 and there may be a total of 8 employees). Not only that but i’m sure they have family members that also want the shoe, so take away another 4 pairs ; now we are down to 24 pairs. And on top of it , every area has their renown Reseller who is probably going to come in there and offer $50 on top of each shoe, and may probably end up with 10 pairs (  employees probably get $6 to $10/hour plus 2% commission on every sale, hence $500 cash in one day is an offer they will not turn down).

Air Jordan 1 banned store raffle 1

The store is now down to roughly  18 pairs to raffle so I would assume 200 people ( can you see me SMH..), so your probability of winning is basically insignificant; and you are pretty much running from store to store and facing the same problem.the questions again : Is the Air Jordan 1 Banned Store Raffle Fair? well like my good friends Chris Burns and Pastor Steve Hughes would say: life isn’t fair, get over it and keep it moving.

OTHER ALTERNATIVES TO THE Air Jordan 1 Banned Store Raffle

I will not leave you helpless though, I believe there are several ways for you to get these shoes beside the irritating store raffles :

  1. try the online raffle, probably less rigged and your chances of winning will be a little higher
  2. Check your local Mom and Pop shop, I don’t think they are obligated to do a raffle, be honest with the owners, tell them you really want the shoe, and offer them a little token ( if you know what i mean)
  3. There are so many international shops from where i have bought several days after release Date, they still have shoes sitting on their site ( check our international legit shops list in the UK,Belgium, France, Germany, Poland,Spain )
  4. Pay resale
  5. You can always use the shoe style # and search for it on any search engines, you will be amazed how much you will find doing that.
  6. Be patient, there would be several restocks, trust me, JB will capitalize on these.
  7.  Get up early sit before your computer and save our early purchase links and keep refreshing it 5 mn prior to the release date and be patient.
