No more queues.

Not a fan of the whole queue-for-hours, every-good-size-sold-out shammozle of exclusive sneaker drops?

Neither are we.

Thankfully, Foot Locker realised this and did something about it. An update to the existing ‘The Locker’ app sees a roll-out that lets customers reserve limited edition sneakers, before their official release. 

Referred to as ‘Release Reservation’, the in-app feature allows you to reserve select kicks from the day before their release.

You can even select up to three sizes and add store preferences. But you’ll need to be quick. 

Once a launch is live, you’ll be racing against others to ‘submit’ your reservation. Like in-store releases, it’s a first-in-first-served basis.

Now that you’ve successfully reserved your sneakers, you’ve then got until 2pm on the release day to collect your goodies.

Next time there’s a new sneaker drop, you know what to do.
