Today marked another eventful sneaker release Saturday, with several prizes up for grabs early this morning. At the top of the list was Sean Cliver's highly anticipated "Holiday Special" colorway of the resurgent Nike SB Dunk Low, along with the "Hyper Royal" Air Jordan 13 Retro and pieces from Drake's NOCTA Nike Sportswear collection. Most of the potential buying activity was directed toward the SNKRS app, which, as usual, resulted in mostly everyone who attempted to make a purchase empty-handed and feeling pretty pissed off. So much that SNKRS took the top trend on Twitter in the United States for a lengthy amount of time.

As you may have guessed, the vast majority of tweets mentioning SNKRS weren't exactly sent in support of the app. Sneakerheads are understandably (and predictably) unhappy, so we've rounded up some of the best reactions to today's drop to help us all smile through the pain.
I might have to go to the most abandoned mall on the 24th when those grinches drop.. I gotta better chance there than on SNKRS.. 🙃
