Have you ever tried to buy a coveted sneaker on release day, multiple different retailer webpages open as you wait to refresh the page right when the shoe becomes available? This is a familiar scenario for many sneakerheads, and its become an increasingly fruitless exercise. The culprit? Bots.Highsnobiety has a pretty in-depth look at how bots work, and how they’re forcing retailers to quickly adapt so that regular fans of the brands can get access to product without being computer-savvy. Essentially, Yeezy Boost 950 purchasing bots imitate bots that web developers use to test whether their checkout process is working correctly.
