Today, we're excited to announce the launch of the Plugd Sneaker Release & Raffle Calendar. To all my fellow manual coppers out there, this one is for you!

There are three ways to access the sneaker release info section:

  1. Clicking on the Release & Raffle section on the homepage.
  2. Clicking on the Release & Raffle Calendar in the side menu and then selecting a sneaker.
  3. Going to a sneaker's product's price comparison page and then clicking on "Release Info."

Normal Release

These releases are pretty straightforward, usually requiring you to be online or in-store during the announced release time. Some retailers that consistently release in this category include Yeezy Supply, Shoe Palace, Jimmy Jazz, and Shikeh.

Raffle Release

Raffle releases happen over a few days. Stores will usually announce over social media giving details on how to enter into the raffle. Winners who are selected will get sent the shoes after completing the transaction. Retailers that consistently release via raffle include SNKRS, END, Bodega, Sneakersnstuff, and Extra Butter. We've separated raffles into four categories:

  1. Online - Sign up online by filling out a form
  2. Social - Sign up by following and tagging friends on a retailer's IG or FB account.
  3. In-Store - involves either an online sign-up or in-store sign-up process, but winners will pick up the sneakers in person.
  4. In-App - requires users to download and use an app to enter into the raffle.

You'll also be able to keep track of the raffles you've already signed up for directly using Plugd.

It's wise to plan releases accordingly and sign up for as many raffles as possible to maximize your chances during a hyped release. We will be updating release and raffle information frequently as new information comes in.
