Without notice, Nike, in true Quickstrike fashion, released one of the most anticipated collaborations of the year.
While most 'heads were entering raffles for chances to cop the Air Jordan X Retro "OVO," Nike did one better and released the actual shoe with a tweet from the @NikeStore account at 12 p.m. EST today. Sneakerheads who happened to be on Twitter when the link dropped probably lucked out and got a pair.
Nike has made a greater effort of late to equal the playing field for online releases with its implementation of use of its new Launch Drawing System and now with today's true Quickstrike release. Peep below to see how some folks on Twitter reacted and feel free to share your thoughts on how Nike handled the "OVO" in the comments below.
