Sneaker lovers rejoice, we’ve caught wind of a next-level competition going down from Thursday, July 2 and here’s exactly how you can get in on it.
The team over at Australia’s most fashionable shopping app, Klarna, are bringing the goods with a sneaker drop of epic proportions. Here’s the deal—they’ve teamed up with sneaker royalty Fabian Gorsler, the Chief Sportswear Editor of Highsnobiety, to curate a collection of insanely-rare kicks for re-release in the competition.
Gorsler says, “The chosen five sneakers each represent a different—but equally important—part of today’s sneaker culture. This is a second chance most sneakerheads won’t want to miss out on.”
Up for grabs will be five of the most coveted releases from the last five years. We’re talking the likes of adidas Originals Yeezy Boost 750 OG (2015), the first design to emerge from Kanye West and adidas’ highly-anticipated partnership. This is followed by the Acronym x Nike Presto Mid (2016), a piece which leverages ACRONYM’s ultra-technical know-how to deliver a completely new sock-like sneaker.
More recent releases include the Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Jordan 1 Chicago (2017), the Sean Wotherspoon x Nike Air Max 97/1 (2017) and the Daniel Arsham x Adidas Futurecraft 4D (2018). For the lowdown on why we’re obsessed with this line-up, check the details over at Heartbeats 4 Sneakers. In total, there will be 15 pairs available to snatch up with each style offering three sizes for the giveaway.
True sneaker fans will know that competitions can sometimes be a drag and ruined by sneaky bots infiltrating all the fun. That’s why Klarna has done the hard yards to implement the most innovative verification technology to determine that each entry into the competition is by a truly passionate sneakerhead—if you’re keen to geek out on this next-level tech, get clued up here.
The comp will be going down for four days only, kicking off on Thursday, July 2 at 8pm and wrapping up on Monday, July 6 at 8pm. What are you waiting for? Get amongst this footwear fest over at Heartbeats 4 Sneakers now.
