    Hello,
    I often come across somebody requesting proxies for nike.com. What do they need it for? How do they profit from that?

    nike shopaholics can purchase from their home ip only 2 pair of limited shoes, by using the proxies that can purchase more then 1 pair of shoes from that nike limited edition.

    I think this is crazy, especially considering I've come across businesses SPECIFICALLY listing proxies for this feature! I guess it could be lucrative, if you can get 3 pairs of shoes per ip, and then sell them for much more once the craze has started/continues

    As above, they do it because they want to snipe limited edition shoes and then resell them. Not all people use proxies for that purpose, but those buying them in bulk are simply reselling them.

    I actually have a friend of mine who keeps bugging me about finding him a damn SHOE BOT. I insisted there was no such thing, but I must be wrong?
    If someone can point me in the direction of a shoe bot, that would be greatly appreciated.

    those things definitely exist, i frequent /fa/ fashion board on fourchan and there's always a huge buzz when for instance there's a new Supreme drop, ppl use bots to buy pretty much everything in seconds and the best stuff get sold out in minutes, so it's not really enough to have the proxies, you'd need a bot too, if you really wanna turn a huge profit flipping the stuff on ebay
    although i can't point you into the right direction for this shoe bot, but you can always hire somebody to make one for you/your friend, i think i've seen a thread recently where somebody was requesting one to be made in the hire a freelancer section

    I also saw the the special offer for proxies for nike.com and I was wondering why the hell they need it and why any proxy provider provides proxy for a niche like that. Now everything's clear, thanks :)

    i'm a big sneakerhead. yes botting is big buisiness... at least it was. little companies that specialize in nike botting will charge for "rsvp" services that guarantees you the shoe so to speak. buying off of nike on certain jordan and quickstrike nike releases is impossible because botting has gotten so out of control. the general public cant even buy shoes anymore. its completely oversaturated the way it is, and thats people who are huge into hacking and backdooring... not any room for general non sneakerhead blackhatters. just saying. its a bad time right now... nike just cancelled the jordan 1 chicago's and then they turned around the next weekend and cancelled every release. all because of bots... they cancelled a release that has only dropped in 1985 and 1994. its literal insanity.
    nike has cracked down in the last two weeks and started banning people who's cart ip's don't match their checkout ip. its all very complicated if you aren't familiar with the add to cart, checkout process.

    for the people asking about nike bots... just know that this is the worst possible time to ask that question. its always a cat and mouse game, but the shoe bot world does not look very good at all right now. and thats good for the sneakerhead community. its about time nike got drastic. but rsvp sites are getting ready to close up shop and call it quits.

    Yea your right.

    The competition is so strong that even if you use a bot you can still miss out.

    I have used bots in the past and even then I missed out many times so if you dont have a bot you might as well forget about buying online.
