A sneaker proxy is a proxy server that is used to make multiple purchases on sneaker sites. Our RainProxy sneaker proxies usually have residential IPs and have to be fast to fulfill their role.

With their numerous applications in streamlining the data flow, securing both the servers and the clients, and making the internet an overall better place – it’s hard to underestimate the essential role proxies play in today’s digital landscape.

With that being said, people looking to protect their browsing and companies looking to forward their interests aren’t the only ones using proxies. Proxies are used for all kinds of things, one of the more interesting of which would have to be copping the latest pair of kicks.

In an exciting turn of events, proxies are a pillar of the sneaker subculture, as they massively augment your chances to get the latest pair of sneakers. In this article, we’ll talk a bit about proxies, define their role in the sneaker subculture, and help you pick out the best proxy for the job.

The Role of Proxies and Their Importance

Proxies serve an integral role in the modern internet – they act as a middle man between the server and the client requesting information from it. Proxies are a necessary firewall and web content filter that allows for streamlined, simple, and swift communication on the internet.

There are more kinds of proxies than you can imagine. Some proxies are used for high anonymity and internet security, others are used to enable things such as web crawlers, and some are even used to help you get the latest and most incredible pair of sneakers

The Role of Proxies for Sneaker Copping

Sneakerheads use proxies to purchase these sneakers by employing sneaker bots to do so.
If you press the “buy now” button a little too much or try to send too many requests to the server, which is mandatory if you want to cop some kicks – the server thinks you’re a bot, and you’ll likely get a soft ban that efficiently ends your chances of getting those sneakers.

Servers are careful to block all the bots from buying.

By employing a sneaker bot, it will automatically send the buy now requests for you, augmenting your chances of getting the sneakers in the first place.

However, there is a catch. If the system catches on that you’re using bots because all of the requests are coming from the same physical location and IP address, that address might get blacklisted.

That’s where sneaker proxies come in. They efficiently make your bots all look different from one another, making the server none the wiser. If just one of them goes through, you’ll get your sneakers, and you can resume the poxy later on.

Sneaker proxies make it appear that entirely different people are trying to get the same pair of kicks, while it’s been only you and your sneaker bot army all along.

Best Proxy Types for the Job

Our rainproxy residential proxy has a specific IP address that is different from your own, and most importantly, is located in a different place. While the best option, residential proxies aren’t the cheapest option on the market, and having multiple could cost you a pretty penny. Residential proxies are also very fast, which is a very sought-after trait in sneaker coping.

In that case, people opt for shared proxies. Shared proxies work very much like residential proxies – only you’re not the sole person with successes to it. As long as you find a proxy that isn’t trying to cop the same pair of sneakers as you, you should be fine. While not as fast as residential proxies, shared proxies also may lack security and privacy.
