Nike assures customers they're doing what they can to remove sneaker bots from their apps and launches with the resources available to them.

Today (May 27) was a bad day for a whole lot of sneaker aficionados. Two versions and two colorways of the latest Travis Scott and Nike collab was available on the SNKRS app, but thanks to limited quantities, way more people caught L’s than got blessed with a “Got ‘Em” notification.


The best thing Nike could do at this point is stop it with making just 100K pairs of a highly coveted release while making millions of pairs of kicks no one wants.

We all know the sneaker game is absolutely rigged, but a new story from the Los Angeles Times put a big spotlight on just how much of a jig it is.

Much ink has already been spilled on how SNKRS which you would think would help democratize the ability to get exclusive kicks has done exactly the opposite. At this point to thanks to bots and that reality that sneakers have become assets akin to stocks and bonds, even kicks you'd think would be an easy cop now require luck, elite dexterity on apps and a slavish devotion to the hunt. 

Sneakerheads feel like their suspicions about the SNKRS app and how trash it is were confirmed following the news of a VP connected to the app resigned from Nike.


HipHopWired is looking to help the everyday sneaker aficionado with tips and tricks on how to have Nike or adidas finally take your money in exchange for fresh to death kicks without the use of sneakerbots. Some of these techniques work and others are rumored to help, but still, if you want to catch that dub then you should definitely try some of these methods out.


For those who aren't lucky enough to grab themselves a pair of the 25th Anniversary Air Jordan 11's, they'll have another chance when the pairs release to the general public come December 12th at the tune of $220.

Did you get em? You won't be able to find many people following a sneaker drop on Nike's SNKRS app. The trend continued today for sneaker enthusiasts.

Well, despite being in a global pandemic, some things remain the same, namely the struggle to secure highly-coveted kicks on Nike's SNKRS app.
