Your last chance to cop these highly-coveted high-tops.
Back in June, John Elliott brought back the Nike Vandal—the Swoosh’s classic basketball sneaker—in two easy-going hues, anthracite and sail. Both sold out faster than you can say “side-zip hoodie.” Though we thought that meant that Elliott’s take on the classic high-top Nikes were gone forever, the LA-based designer announced earlier this week that he was bringing them back via raffle on his own site. The raffle, which ends tonight, is seemingly your last chance to own either the gray or off-white pair of kicks. (Unless you’re cool with paying the $100 mark-up at Flight Club.)
The raffle rules are simple: Put in your information as if you were going to buy the sneakers, and if your name is chosen tonight (at 9PM PST) your credit card will be charged for the $150 kicks (plus shipping and tax). We don’t know how many pairs are being released this time around, or what your chances are of picking them up, but if you want a shot, entering the raffle’s your best bet. And if you do, know there’s no better vibe for these minimalist high-tops than some John Elliott sweatpants, hoodie, and bomber jacket.
