If you want the latest Yeezy sneakers, these days you may need a bot to help you out.
Alfred, you've wrote about the world of sneaker head bots.
Tell us a little bit about it.
Yeah so I spoke with the creator of one of the more popular sneaker bots out there.
The bot is called cyber AIO.
It costs about 200 pounds to get.
And then, they only sell 100 copies of that bot every month.
And then, people will try to rebuy.
If they miss out on the sale, they'll try to buy that bot for about $2700.
So there's a resale market on the bots?
Yeah, yeah there's a resale market for bots to buy [UNKNOWN].
And there's also bots to buy those bots now >. What?
Because there's only a hundred copies of them, so people make bots to buy those bots.
And you might be wondering why so many people pay thousands of dollars for these bots even, and the big reason is, you know, these sneakers are basically collectables, like even though these Yeezy sneakers on tater are going to sell for 200 dollars
Very good chance that on the resale market it'll sell for 800, $600 or so and that's just like D sneakers, like the Marty McFly sneakers that came out a few years ago.
Those were on an eBay auction for like $41,000.
Cuz they're extremely rare, and there is a lot of rich people out there that wanna collect these.
So is the people that get these bots, are they more collectors, or are they resellers?
There's a good chance that they're most likely resellers because there
But basically investing in a tool to help them make more money.
I don't think they'd spend that much money to just collect these sneakers on their own.
But it would be a healthy investment I would say if you're in the reselling business.
