Are you wondering how to win sneakers in the SNKRS app? Or maybe there is a coveted pair of Air Jordan 1 Mid’s dropping next week in the Nike app and you are wondering how to win in the Nike app? Well, I cannot guarantee you will win the draw for a pair of Air Jordan’s or Dunk’s in the SNKRS or Nike app, but I can give you a few tips which have helped me win the exact pairs of sneakers my kids want, my husband wants, and I want!

First off, let’s chat really quick about what is going on here. The IT sneakers among Gen Z, Millennials, GenX and Boomers are sneakers from the Air Jordan collection and the Nike Dunk collection. There are also special shoes which drop from Nike that are collaborations with hot designers and brands such as Off-White, Stussy, Sacai, and more. These collections range in price from $100 for a pair of Nike Dunk Low’s to over $200 for a coveted collaboration shoe. While much more affordable than an IT bag priced over $2000, these hard-to-get IT sneakers are more of a competition than the IT bag you see on the fashion week streets.

Men, women, and teenagers alike are working hard to find a pair of Jordan’s, Dunk’s or a special other shoe released by Nike on a daily basis. When these sneakers drop in the SNKRS app or the Nike app, there is a small, limited size run which is released. While some styles are released a few times per year, such as the popular black/white Nike Dunk’s also called the “Panda’s,” other styles are only dropped once, making them even more scarce for consumers.

This level of scarcity is causing people to go to the secondary market to purchase the sneakers they really want. There can be a problem with the secondary market. Sometimes they sell replicas, just like in the handbag market, so consumers need to be very careful. In addition, there is price gauging for really popular pairs. A pair of Nike Dunk High’s that normally sell for $125 direct from Nike, will sell for hundreds of dollars on the secondary market. Unless the pair of shoes you want is not going to be available from Nike again, I recommend watching the prices from resellers and being very careful. Please don’t pay thousands of dollars! I feel like $300 from a reseller is the limit. Anything more than that, unless it’s an investment shoe you plan to keep locked up in a safe, is not worth the overpriced markup.

Therefore, I am going to help you grab that pair of coveted Air Jordan’s, Dunk’s, Off-White’s, and more with these tips which have helped me win Pandas, my favorite shades of blue, and the colorways my kids have been coveting. I hope they work for you too! I want you to know how to win sneakers in the SNKRS app and how to win sneakers in the Nike App!

How to win sneakers in the Nike App

The two pairs of sneakers shown above are shoes I won in the Nike App. Nike releases their coveted sneakers in one of two ways; on the Nike App or on the SNKRS app.

Step one: download the Nike app and the SNKRS app.

Step two: Create a Nike account and make sure you add a form of payment right away.

Step three: Ensure you have a very strong password on your Nike account. These accounts are often targeted by hackers who want to obtain control of accounts so they can enter the draws on the apps. Use a good combo of uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and characters. Also save your password in your phone and/or computer. This way you won’t need to type it when ordering sneakers. Sometimes the app will ask you to verify your account while you are trying to enter the draw to win that coveted pair of sneakers. Don’t get caught trying to type your password in! Have it saved in your phone for easy and fast entering.

Step four: Browse the Nike app. Do a search on “Jordan Shoes” or “Dunk” or anything special you are interested in. I do searches every few days on those two phrases plus “Air Force 1” because I love those sneakers too. Nike drops new styles on a weekly basis, you don’t want to miss out on the colorway you have been waiting months for! Once you search and find new styles you like, favorite them and click the “notify” button. This will help you know when Nike will open the draw so you can enter to win the sneakers.

Step five: Check your phone settings. Make sure you have notifications enabled for the Nike app and the SNKRS app. You don’t want to miss the draw!

Step six: Mark your calendar for the date and time when the next sneaker drops that you want to win. Be ready with your phone a few minutes ahead of time, but don’t be too excited. The best things come to those who wait. . .

Step seven: The clock hits 7am and the coveted pair of sneakers you want just dropped. Don’t click on it yet. Right when it drops is when all the bots attack the shoe. Don’t let Nike think you are a bot! Take a deep breath and watch the clock. When the clock gets closer to 7:01am, it’s time. Click on the shoe you want and enter the draw. Nike may ask you for your password, but you have it saved in your phone so it will be easy and quick for you during this step. Nike will then place you in a line. Click the “OK” button. You can safely close the app and go back to work, your breakfast, the morning news, whatever you do to distract yourself. It can take anywhere from two minutes to twenty minutes to find out if you scored the sneakers. Be patient.

Step seven and a half: If there are multiple pairs dropped on the same day, don’t worry, you got this! I won three pairs in one day recently! Patiently click on one, then the next one, etc. I have won shoes I have clicked on at 7:03am. It’s OK. Nike knows you aren’t a bot because you were patient.

Step eight: The aftermath. You either won them, or you didn’t. If you won the sneakers, screenshot that celebration screen and do a little dance. You got ’em! If not, brush it off and prepare for the next drop.

OK, you just read through the how to win sneakers in the Nike app tips, now let’s move on and focus on the SNKRS app. I have found the Nike App is a little bit easier to win shoes from than the SNKRS app; but that does not mean the SNKRS app is impossible. I have scored some amazing pairs of sneakers from the SNKRS app using the above tips. There are a couple difference between the Nike App and the SNKRS app. So here you are:

In reference to Step Four above, you don’t need to browse and search the SNKRS app. There are three tabs on the top of the screen, the tab on the right is the important one. It says “Upcoming” and this is the tab you want to click on. I love this tab because it is very well organized! The SNKRS app lists everything by drop date. You can scroll through the list and see which shoes drop on what date. You can easily click on the “notify me” button on each shoe you are interested in. This is an easy way to keep track of drops and see what you are waiting for. Follow all of the other steps listed above for the SNKRS app, and good luck!

A few things to keep in mind. If you are trying to get black/white Dunk’s, either low or high, don’t worry if you don’t win the first time. These drop a few times per year, and you will eventually win a pair. They are very popular and referred to as “Pandas.” The Jordan’s in Chicago Bulls colors are very popular too. You will eventually win a pair, they drop in different variations a few times per year too. Black and red pairs are often referred to as “Breds” and are very popular. Be careful if you try to purchase a pair on the secondary market, they are often faked. Same with the Off-White collabs, keep entering the draws for them, the secondary market can be priced high with a lot of replicas. You want to be careful.

Which coveted sneakers are your favorite? Mine are the Nike Dunk’s, both low and high, but I also love Air Jordan 1 low’s.

Thanks for stopping by, and good luck on the SNKRS app and Nike App!

OK, how cute are these Air Jordan 1 Low’s! I was so excited when I won them on the SNKR’s app. They are a women’s style with a beautiful combination of pale blue leather and grey suede. I know I am not tying them the “cool” way, but if I tie them the cool way they fall off my feet, so I am going to be uncool until I figure out how to tie them correctly and have them stay on my feet. haha

I found this pretty light blue tee for under $50, and it looks perfect with my Air Jordan 1 Low sneakers since they are pale blue! I decided to play with color a little bit and pair the pale blue with my bright green handbag and lilac summer nail polish. It’s a very casual look with some color fun. Love!

This outfit worked out well the other day when my family and I went out to lunch at Dough Zone in Cupertino. If you haven’t been to Dough Zone, you will love it if you are a fan of dumpling and noodles. They have the most amazing spicy won tons. So good!

In addition to their yummy won tons, we also enjoyed pot stickers, soup dumplings, dan dan noodles, and green onion pancake. Dough Zone also has amazing dan dan noodles. They are so good! Those are my two favorite dishes; the spicy won tons and the dan dan noodles. I highly recommend trying them!

I’m having fun building up my sneaker wardrobe this summer. Hopefully I can add some more fun colors to my collection.

Stay tuned for my tips on how to win in the SNKR’s app later this week!
