Earlier this week, Nike released the Blazer Mid silhouette from the collaborative “QUEEN” pack with Off-White™ and Serena Williams via its SNKRS app. The surprise drop sold out in seconds, with almost all of the available pairs going to Android users following a technical mistake.
The sneaker was released using Nike’s Behind the Design “scratch” feature, which asks users to virtually scratch an image in order to buy the shoe. This caused a technical issue, which meant that iPhone users had to log out and back in to the app in order to access the “scratch” release. Nike has yet to explain whether this Android-exclusive release was intentional or not.

Pro-tip for Android users:
Sell your Serena Blazers and buy an iPhone
