Skip A "Major" Release
Know what the best thing about "major" sneaker releases are? There's always another one, generally the following week. So instead of settling into a camp chair for the weekend with a pocketful of Power Bars, sleep in. Let those other poor suckers spend the day and night in front of Foot Locker waiting for whatever shoe it is that they'll Instagram tonight and sell as VVVVVVVVNDS next week. No need to abandon the ride entirely, just take a turn off and see how you feel. Worst case scenario is you have to spend double retail on eBay later — at least you won't have pneumonia.
