Virgil Abloh and Nike‘s “OFF CAMPUS” workshops and talks start later this week and fans have been clamoring to find out when and how to purchase the sneakers. Now, thanks to an internal FAQs sheet for the drop, we find out the exact dates and method of release for the highly sought-after pairs.

According to the “FAQs: NIKE, INC. PRESENTS ‘TEN ICONS RECONSTRUCTED’ BY VIRGIL ABLOH” document, the collection will be split into two five-pair releases, the first five styles will include the Air Jordan 1, Blazer, Air Presto, Air Max 90 and Air VaporMax as the “REVEALING” styles, the latter five will be called “GHOSTING.”

In order to win a chance to purchase, you’ll have to enter via THE DRAW. Starting September 6, you can enter one time for each style in the “REVEALING” selection. As always, if you win THE DRAW you must have valid ID and be the person that picks up the pair once given the official confirmation and details for time and pickup.

All 10 pairs will have a November release but a pre-release for the “REVEALING” silhouettes will take place in New York City from September 9-13. A global release for these models follows in the coming weeks; London (September 18-22), Milan (September 21-25) and Paris (September 26-30). In NYC, the retailers carrying the sneakers will be NikeLab 21M and DSM.

Mark your calendars for the biggest release of the year and while you wait, take a look at how the reconstructed icons compare to the originals. Read the full Nike FAQ sheet here.
