The Juiced Guide To How To Use Nike SNKRS App

July 19, 2023

The Nike SNKRS app is where the brand releases some of its most sought-after releases whether it be huge collaborations with other brands or iconic silhouettes. Launched in 2015, the app is designed to make it as fair as possible for every buyer to have a chance at securing some of the rarest sneakers out there. However, there are some ways in which you can potentially give yourself an edge over your fellow resellers and sneakerheads. In this article, we will run down these ways you can manipulate the SNKRS app to give yourself a better chance. Not everything discussed here will have concrete evidence to support it. However, they may be worth a try nonetheless.

Creating Multiple Accounts


We start with one of the oldest tricks in the book. The majority of Nike SNKRS releases are done via a raffle system to try to make the playing field as even as possible. However, just like in any lottery, increasing your entries improves your chances of success. Creating multiple accounts can significantly boost your likelihood of securing those coveted drops. However, bear in mind that Nike is aware of this strategy, and you will need to be cautious to avoid violating their one account-per-person policy.

Each account should appear as unique as possible, using multiple devices where possible. This will require a distinct email address, phone number, and even a separate payment method. Utilizing family and friends’ details (with their consent, of course) can be an effective way to create legitimate, separate accounts. Address jigs, a technique to slightly modify your address while keeping it valid (e.g., abbreviating Street to St.), can also help bypass Nike’s systems to identify and flag multiple accounts linked to the same address.

Personalizing Your Account

Giving your SNKRS account a personal touch not only makes your experience more tailored but also reportedly increases your chances when it comes to releases. Apparently, Nike’s algorithms tend to favour accounts that show evidence of a ‘real’ person behind them. With that in mind, here are two easy ways to personalize your account:

Set Your Preferences: You’ll find a “Settings” tab on the SNKRS app where you can indicate your shoe size, gender, and preferred types of products. This ensures the app highlights the releases most relevant to you.

Heart Your Favorites: When you see a sneaker you like in the feed or upcoming section, tap the heart icon to indicate your interest. This not only keeps you updated on this particular release but also signals your preference for the algorithm.

Whilst there’s no absolute evidence to suggest doing these things matters, it’s worth a try regardless and many users swear that it does in fact make a difference come release time.

Engaging with the SNKRS App


Active engagement with the app is more than just window shopping for the latest drops. This might be a subtle factor, but it could improve your chances of securing highly sought-after kicks. Here’s how to engage effectively:

Participate in Polls and Quizzes: Occasionally, the SNKRS app provides users with polls or quizzes related to sneakers or sporting events. Participating in these not only enhances your user engagement but also shows the algorithm your ongoing interaction with the app.

Watch SNKRS Live and SNKRS Stories: Whilst often tedious, SNKRS live sessions and stories matter when it comes to app engagement. Regularly tuning in demonstrates active engagement and possibly gives you an edge as shock drops also often happen during these events.

Use the ‘Notify Me’ Feature: When you find an upcoming sneaker release you’re interested in, tap the ‘Notify Me’ button. This ensures you’ll get a reminder when the sneakers are about to drop. Regularly using this feature could signal to Nike’s algorithms that you’re a serious buyer who is constantly on the hunt for new kicks.

Purchase Regularly: While your ultimate goal might be those rare, high-resale-value sneakers, don’t ignore less hyped releases. Regular purchasing activity on your account can indicate to the algorithm that you’re a consistent customer, not just a reseller. Thus, try and buy “bricks”, shoes that won’t make you significant money but still will profit you $10-$20. The engagement here is more valuable than the profit itself.

Utilizing Notifications and Third-Party Tools

The sneaker game is fast-paced. Drops can sell out in seconds, so staying informed is key. Activating notifications on the SNKRS app can help ensure you’re alerted when a sneaker becomes available.

In addition, various third-party tools can further increase your chances. For instance, online communities like Juiced offer insider information, advice, and strategies for securing the latest drops. What’s so special about Juiced is that our app also contains information on NFTs, Collectibles, Tickets, Electronics and more. We also have various tools to help you as a reseller such as an auto-checkout tool and bulk listing tool for Amazon, eBay and Shopify. If you would like to get access to these things and much more then you can sign up for free here.

Botting tools can also be advantageous for SNKRS, but tread carefully, as using such tools violates Nike’s terms of service and can lead to account suspension.
