Nike is trying to do all they can to stop people from purchasing releases using a sneaker bot. Nike has already taken a step forward by denying people in person when arriving to their local Nike Store retailer to try and pickup their release.
“I went to pick up my RSVP from NikeDC and was denied. They said the RSVP was done using “an automated service” and I should call 1 800 344 6453 if I have any questions.
I got denied last week at NikeDC for the Retro 3. This time I even used my wife’s name and still got denied.” – ballsnark on NT
Now, Nike is rumored to start having pre-orders on their website as another step forward to stopping sneaker bots. Do you applaud Nike for taking these steps and do you think having pre-orders would make a huge difference? Sound off in the comments.
