The new Exclusive Access system will be available only to select members from August 9 onwards. The Off-White x Nike Dunk “The 50” pack, for example, will be part of a series of summer drops that will be released via Exclusive Access.
Exclusive Access system grants selected members early access to upcoming releases. According to a press release, “Exclusive Access may be delivered before the general launch, after the general launch, or delivered in absence of a general launch – some drops may release only via Exclusive Access.”
Who gets Exclusive Access? Short answer: active members. The system draws from over 50 variables — including prior SNKRS entries, content engagement and poll responses — to identify the most active members in the SNKRS community.
