Digital sneaker marketplace GOAT will be holding its highly-anticipated Black Friday event once again.

This year, the company will be sweetening the pot a bit in addition to making the occasion a bit more fun using AR (Augmented Reality).

In addition to the credit prize and rare sneakers at retail price raffle, the renowned footwear commerce app will also offer chances to win free sneakers which include the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Shattered Backboard,” KAWS x Air Jordan 4 Retro Black, Pharrell x BBC x NMD Human Race Trail “Heart/Mind” and more.

Winning these prizes are quite simple if you already have the GOAT App. All participants begin with 100 tickets. The more tickets you have, the better your chances are at winning. In order to get more tickets, GOAT has included fun location-specific activations using AR & AR 3D objects which was developed by Apple’s ARKit.
