Sneaker Bots: How Do They Work?
Not long ago, Newcastle-based streetwear retailer END. Clothing revealed its intentions to stand fast on the front lines of the war against bots, with its new “Launches” system that was touted as bot-proof.
In the past year or so, brands as well as retailers have been rallying against the use of bots during online sneaker releases, not limited to Supreme, Nike, adidas and other smaller retailers. The battle is waging on, and while sneakerheads are often S.O.L. when release day comes around, stores and brands are still seeing their stock fly off shelves faster than is humanly possible.
