Why do you need sneaker proxies for Footlocker?
When botting any Footsite website, such as Footlocker, Eastbay, Champs Sports or Footaction you will need proxies. This is because these websites employ advanced cybersecurity techniques which detect when you are trying to purchase multiple pairs of shoes from a single IP address (A unique networking identifier for your PC). To circumvent detection and buy multiple pairs of the shoe with your bot, you will need to reroute your internet traffic through a number of different proxy servers (proxies). This will result in the internet traffic looking like it is coming from different computers and as such, not violating the website one per customer policy. This should mean you can purchase multiple pairs of shoes with a single shoe bot.
Can you use any proxy?
No, you can't. Footlocker works with cybersecurity partners such as Akamai and Datadome to develop a range of techniques that allows them to detect certain connections from proxy servers and as such, these connections are then banned from their website. They do this by looking at a range of IP address characteristics such as usage history or owner and then maintaining blacklists of IP addresses that are banned from the site.
Most proxies that you can purchase on the internet will not work for Footlocker. This is because their IP address characteristics cause them to be banned. The main thing that Footlocker looks at is the IP address owner. Most proxies use IP addresses that are owned by datacenters. Sneaker websites know that real customers wouldn't have datacenter IP addresses and as such, these IP addresses are banned by sites.
My proxy can access Footlocker but I can't checkout?
Footlocker and their cybersecurity partners have a range of ban types which mean certain proxies do not work. The most obvious is their 403 Forbidden ban when accessing the site, this is enforced by Footlockers own website security and this usually happens if you access from an IP address which is owned by a datacenter or an ASN Footlocker has deemed as malicious.
Another type of ban is their Datadome block or captcha. Datadome are one of Footlocker's cybersecurity partners and they do a check on your IP address and digital fingerprint when you attempt to add anything to cart on Footlocker. If they deem your IP address to be normal you will be able to add to the cart without issue. If they suspect your IP address may be malicious but aren't entirely sure, they will present you with a captcha of some sort and, if they believe your IP address to be malicious, they will simply block you from adding any item to the cart.
Footlocker also rate-limits requests from IP addresses if they send too much internet traffic in a short period of time. Luckily, these bans are usually temporary but repeated abuse can lead to the permanent banning of your IP address or proxy.
Why are Ping Proxies the best proxies for Footlocker?
At Ping Proxies, we get around these restrictions by using a range of advanced techniques which mean our proxies are undetectable by Footlocker and their security partners. We do not use datacenter IP addresses and instead, use real residential/ISP IP addresses for our shoe proxies products. This means, when using our Footlocker proxies, the website will think you are a real customer and allow you to purchase multiple pairs.
