Having scrapped the online draw due to overwhelming demand, Nike announced that Off-White™‘s “The Ten” collaboration would release via the SNKRS app. The release schedule for the app featured silhouettes dropping over a two-hour course of the afternoon, beginning with the Air Prestos and finishing with the Air Jordan 1s.

Unfortunately for Nike — and anyone hoping to pick up a pair through the app — SNKRS was unable to handle the traffic, with users reporting errors and crashes after the sneakers went live.

If you want more from “The Ten,” take a look at an unreleased all-white Air Jordan 1 colorway.
