Sneakerheads and Kanye West fans alike already have their thumbs on the Adidas Confirmed app, waiting to reserve the new Yeezy Boost 350 when the lottery goes live later this week (Naturally, the Kardashians clan is already modeling them). But for city dwellers, time might be better spent figuring out how to get to the malls in Long Island and New Jersey, where you can enter an in-store lottery to get your pair—meaning you have to get to the store first.
The brand confirmed today that the New Jersey's Cherry Hill Mall and Westfield Garden State Plaza and Long Island's Roosevelt Field are among the 13 stores across America where shoppers can sign up to receive the new sneakers—excluding New York City stores like the Houston Street flagship or the new Downtown Brooklyn location. You've only got until the close of business on Wednesday to put your name down, and you'll be notified by Friday whether you're able to come back to the store on Saturday to pick them up.
Complicated, right? Head here to get updates from Adidas about how to try and snag a pair.
