Was there anything more exciting — and more often than not, heartbreakingly disappointing — as a kid than the claw machines found in arcades? Sure, some are rigged, but what if the prizes you were playing for were grail-worthy sneakers instead of a cheap stuffed animal?
One buy and sell sneaker store in Las Vegas is doing just that. As you'll see in the clip below, Urban Necessities features a claw machine stocked with kicks like adidas Yeezy Boost 350s, "Shattered Backboard" Air Jordan 1, and even older gems like the "Grinch" Nike Zoom Kobe VIs. On top of that, it's only $5 per play. Talk about a come up.
UPDATE (July 15, 1:30 p.m.):
Ever since our story earlier this month, Urban Necessities' Key Master game has blown up, with 'heads coming from far and wide to try their luck at scoring a rare pair. Despite the increased popularity, the Vegas store has managed to keep a steady rotation of heat in the machine, but it may have just outdone itself with the latest update. That's right, the entire machine has been stocked with adidas Yeezy Boost 350s. At $5 per play, this beats eBay prices anyday.
