YEEZMAS YEEZY BOOST DROP

 
 

DECEMBER 13, 2015 | 3:50PM

We're tired of all the overplayed, Instagram-spamming, 3-friend-tagging, photo-reposting Yeezy Boost raffles. All of those are long over now, anyways. So, if you've been deciding whether or not to spend last month's paycheck on a pair of Yeezy's then hold that thought for a moment. It may be time to cross your #1 ask off of your holiday wishlist, grab your beaters, and get prepared to celebrate your first-ever #Yeezmas. 'Tis the YZN, right?

HUNT INFO + INVITE LIST

The hunt will drop on Sunday, December 13th at 3:50PM EST. Use Hypeist.com/yeezmas, our Instagram account, and this page to find out everything you need to know about the hunt.

We are limiting participation to a select number who are true Yeezy fans. Throughout the week, we'll be offering up opportunities to cop an invite to the hunt, so you better be ready to flex your Kanye knowledge when those times come. Keep a tab on our IG to make sure you don't miss your chance to cash in on those opps.

If you make the exclusive list, we'll notify you through an Instagram DM and provide you with all information like where to be on Sunday, who you can bring, and how to check in. Oh yeah, if you make the invite list you'll be able to bring a +1, so you better start thinking about your duo.

Jordan + Pippen? Kobe + Shaq? Pierce + Walker (Sike)? Nah... 'Ye and Hov đź‘Ś.

THE HUNT

Once the hunt drops, you'll be searching for a hidden token - not the actual Yeezy's - for obvious reasons. The token can take many forms - amixtapeart piecemovie reference collectible, etc. - and is redeemable for the Yeezy's.

If you find the token, DM a photo of it to Hypeist on Instagram and we'll hit you back and instruct you on how to redeem it with us. After the token has been found, we'll notify all followers that the hunt has ended through a final Instagram post.  

EASTER EGGS

This hunt will also feature products from Reshoevn8r, Strideline Socks, and a few others. Check back to our Instagram account and in-person at the hunt to find out more about these Easter Eggs.

TIPS & RECOMMENDATIONS

Get to know Hypeist: If you've never hunted before and just started following us, make sure to read up on the basics here 👉How to Hunt

Stay Alert: Make sure you are following us on Instagram and Twitter, and have notifications turned on. Don't worry, we don't post much.

Be Ready: Past Hypeists have won by getting to the drop spot way ahead of the start time. We'll recommend the best time to get there, so stay woke and be ready to make moves.

Know the Drop: Know your strengths, know your weaknesses, and know the drop. For example, biking and skateboarding may allow you to get around faster, but if the token is hidden in a tree then you may be at a disadvantage. So if you're bringing a bike, then consider bringing a bike lock just in case. While these are 🔥, we wouldn't suggested showing up on one.

Read Thoroughly: We get that everyone is scrambling to make moves once the clue is posted. If you skim through the clues, you may miss the most important piece of information. This rule applies for the Kanye trivia challenge, as well. 

Be Careful With The Token: If you find the hidden token, do NOT let the world know - especially for this hunt. Find a SAFE place to take a photo of the token and DM it to us. 

Know Kanye Like Kim: This drop is about the Yeezy Boost, so make sure you have a good understanding of Kanye to pickup on all references and clues. Don't skip your finals to study Kanye, but if you understand our subtle and cryptic references, you will have a significant advantage over most of the competition.
