The kicks game comes down to the odds plain and simple.
Even with all the tech, all the servers, all the software, and all the accounts, the main goal is to increase your odds of being able to purchase a pair of shoes. That’s it. All the aforementioned simply help you maximize your odds of getting access to in-demand shoes.
Of course 50 in 50,000 is better odds than 2 in 50,000, but those odds are still not in your favor. Now I’m sure there are those who have advanced, proprietary techniques of skewing the odds significantly more, but I would guess that is not the population of kicks collectors.
So what am I saying? I’m thinking that to actually be successful #coppingkicks is a very difficult, dedicated endeavor. The upfront expenses probably won’t be covered immediately and since we’re dealing with the higher end, many won’t be able to sustain the costs.
It’s almost good enough to try your hand at entering draws, raffles, and buying via manual means. Heck, even using slot providers with their Pay After Success fee is probably more cost friendly with decent odds.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
