Did you try and cop the Nike Kobe 9 EM “Philippines” release? If so, you’d notice Nike Store introduced their new “Countdown to Launch” for online releases.
The countdown began about 8 minuets to launch, as @nikestore sent out a tweet stating “Countdown to launch. When the clock hits zero, it’s go time. No refresh needed.” Following that tweet was another that included a live countdown to 8AM EST. Once the Nike Kobe 9 EM “Philippines” sold out, @nikestore tweeted “The Kobe 9 Premium has sold out on http://Nike.com . Apologies for any issues experienced with this launch.”
Let us know what you think of the new “Countdown to Launch” release, are you a fan of the new system? We’ll see if this will be their new way to launch the anticipated releases set for Saturday, May 24th.
