Nike doesn't care that resellers are using bots, it helps build the hype. There are ways to combat/limit bots like Captcha, delays, etc. but Nike makes the same amount of money no matter what so they don't bother.

it'd be sweet if Nike did a drop and then nobody actually won but "fake" shoes flooded the market anyways.


fake in quotes since a manufacturing mishap is an indicator of authenticity with Nike.

I live 10 minutes away from my local shop. I got there 15 or 20 minutes after the drop and I still managed to get the last size 9.

Damn, my local skate shop posted orange label dunks the other day and I got there within 15 minutes only for them to already be sold out in my size.

They had a couple sizes left but didn’t want to buy them just to resell.
