The SNKRS app allows users to register for raffles for a variety of sneakers that drop at different times, attempting to revolutionize the sneakerhead community and purchasing process. Many of them, however, are upset at seemingly never winning these raffles.

The SNKRS app promises to democratize the bidding and buying process for sneakers, preventing bots and resellers from dominating the market and giving regular people a chance to buy shoes as soon as they drop. But many remain disappointed by their track record on the app and devastated by the numbers of Ls they have taken.
