The Off-White x Air Jordan 5 "Black" is arguably one of the most sought-after sneakers of 2020. Celebrating thirty years of the legendary Nike silhouette, this is Virgil Abloh's latest Jumpman collab since June 2018's Off-White x Air Jordan 1 "UNC", so naturally, it's going to sell out pretty quickly.
While it's guaranteed to be a brutal cop, we've compiled a few tips and tricks on how you can maximise your chances of getting a W tomorrow! Whether you've copped every single Off-White x Nike release since the beginning of time or you're trying for your first pair, you definitely don't want to miss out on this AJ5!
The first thing that you need to do is make sure you follow us over on Twitter. By following @thesolesupplier, we'll update you on the latest news surrounding the "Black"'s release, while @thesolerestocks will keep you locked in with direct links and potential restock information as well - something that's absolutely vital if you need a W this weekend.
The second thing that you need to do is head on over to the "Black"'s dedicated product page and familiarise yourself with all the information. Make sure you know the exact time they're dropping at, as well as where you'll be able to cop.
After you've done both of these things, the next few steps are absolutely essential. Over the past week, Nike have been going through every single SNEAKRS account to check which ones have their info correctly filled in.
If you've got all the compulsory information verified then you're perfectly fine, but if you don't, the Swoosh might've flagged your account, so make sure you have all the correct billing information and contact details filled. Better yet, make sure your bank knows that it's actually you who's making the transaction just so they don't put it on hold. This has caused countless headaches for many sneakerheads in the past, as banks may actually cancel transactions they think are suspicious.
As the "Black" is only dropping through the Nike SNEAKRS app, you can't enter through multiple internet browsers like previous releases. The best thing to do is enter as close to 9am as possible because it could be a three minute, fifteen minute, or thirty minute raffle and we just don't know yet. You can also borrow a friend or family member's phone as well to try your luck, but make sure you're not all on the same Wi-Fi as it may affect your internet speeds.
And that's that! If you follow every single one of these steps, your chances of copping the Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 5 "Black" will be higher than most! Let us know if you manage to grab a pair tomorrow, and be sure to keep it locked at The Sole Supplier for the latest and greatest sneaker news and releases!
