What is a proxy?

A proxy or proxy server is basically another computer which serves as a hub through which internet requests are processed. By connecting through one of these servers, your computer sends your requests to the proxy server which then processes your request and returns what you were wanting.


How does this help me get shoes?

If you’re using a bot to buy shoes proxies are essential because without them, your bot would be spamming hundreds of requests to a website from one IP address; as soon as they detect that IP flooding their site with traffic, they will ban it. If you have 100 proxies for example, that is 100 different connections hitting the website therefore it is near impossible to ban your bots connection. Proxies can also be used to switch your geolocation which can useful for websites which audit the location the shoes were purchased in or block foreign IP’s from accessing their site.


Is the speed of my proxies important? Should I buy shared or private?

It can be important depending on the task you are using it for. Make sure the connection from your proxy to the website you are using it on is quick. Always use private proxies as shared proxies are significantly slower and have a higher chance of being banned. Never use free proxies you find online ! These are HUGE security risks!
