Birmingham sneaker store Size? has warned customers to expect queues ahead of the release of a new Nike shoe.
The release of the Nike Dunk Low ‘Marina Blue’ is expected on Thursday, February 3 and the store is selling the shoe on a first-come-first-serve (FCFS) basis at the Lower Temple Street store.
Normal size? stores do online raffles to prevent large queues but this time it has warned customers to “queue safely and sensibly”.

Previously, there have been two-hour queues outside the store due to previous sneaker releases.
In an Instagram post, the store said: “We expect everyone to queue safely and sensibly, if we deem it unsafe to open the launch will be withdrawn.
“We ask everyone queue up the street towards Tim Hortons and no one in the doorway to the shop or the launch will be cancelled.
If this launch goes well we will be able to do more first come first served launches, if your unable to follow the simple instructions from management this won’t be possible and we will revert back to change to purchase post.
“It’s down to you lot to queue properly”.
The store opens from 9.40am.
Back in April 2021, queues snaked across New Street as shoppers lined up two hours in advance to get their hands on new limited edition trainers.
However, people seem to be mixed about the approach that Size? is taking with the shoe.

And sneakerkid_____ added: “Much prefer raffles.. at least give us who work a small chance. Don’t have time to be queuing to purchase shoes”
But others were excited about the news. sneakersidestourbridge said: “First come first serve is the way. learn to get out of bed in the morning.”
And marium_______ added: “Hopefully people behave so you guys can do more fcfs”.
