About the bot

Nike Shoe Bot is one of the oldest Nike bots out there. It has a simple and user-friendly interface, which lets sneakerheads cook multiple pairs with ease. NSB supports over a hundred retail sites, including Footsites and Shopify. It is updated constantly and comes with a Discord server.

Using Nike Shoe Bot

Nike Shoe Bot is available on both Mac and Windows machines (no word on Linux support, though). The user interface is very blunt and clear: the Billing tab is for billing, the Tasks tab is for task management, and the Proxies tab is for proxy lists.

The great thing about proxies in Nike Shoe Bot is that you can dedicate a sneaker proxy list for a specific task, which means that you can monitor releases in multiple locations and use the best proxies for each one.

NSB setup and task management

Every task on Nike Shoe Bot can run simultaneously, and you can have tasks that monitor just some keyword groups with the option to run an auto-start task. Auto-start tasks monitor your target site and start a checkout task whenever they detect that the sneaker is in stock.

You can always use tasks to monitor multiple sites for bigger drops. Creating a new task is very easy: just select (or enter) a site, choose the checkout mode, insert a link or keywords, select a billing profile and choose a proxy list to use. You can usually get early links for most drops in the Nike Shoe Bot discord.

There are several checkout modes in NSB. You can use the Fast mode for the fastest checkout, but we’d recommend also trying out the slower Safe mode, which should lead to fewer blocks. Cyborg modes (there are two) try to mimic human behavior, but that means the bot will be quite a bit slower. You can choose to force Captcha when you create a task.

Nike Shoe Bot is also great when you can’t be at home for the drop because it can schedule tasks for a later date. This is especially great if you are using a smaller proxy plan because it lets you save some traffic usage.

To set up multiple tasks you just need to enter a number in the Number of Tasks field when creating a new task. Do not forget to use a different proxy for each task. Of course, if you are using our network, that won’t be a problem.

Nike Shoe Bot proxies

If you use NSB, you will need proxies, because they let you stay undetected when your bot runs multiple tasks. Proxies also let Nike Shoe Bot monitor and checkout multiple times, so it makes it faster and more efficient. Nike Shoe Bot’s advanced Task settings let you set timeout limits for monitoring and checkout tasks. The rate at which you can do this depends on the number of proxies you have.

For example, our network lets you use 10,000 ports for US proxies, so that you can use 10,000 tasks with a standard timeout rate, or just a few tasks with an extremely fast timeout rate. To calculate an unbannable timeout rate for Shopify, use this calculator.

Another great thing about Nike Shoe Bot is that it lets you select a proxy list for each task. That means you can use UK proxies for UK releases and US proxies for US releases. This might seem like a basic function, but some bots don’t let you select specific proxies to use for each task.

Creating a proxy list is very easy – you can just copy our endpoints list and paste it in the bot. Test out various locations and global proxies in different lists for the best results.

NSB features

NSB has some very nice features. The first one that comes to mind is the Billings tab, where you can easily review and edit your billing profiles. A neat feature here is the Checkout limit, which lets you set the number of times the billing profile can be used for checkout. This lets you avoid multiple billings on the same account – an indicator of sneaker botting. The limit works as ‘once per site’ or ‘once per site per item’.

The bot also has a neat Captcha solver, which lets you automatically generate one-clicks by logging in to YouTube and watching videos.

Task modes are also a fantastic feature because it lets you test out different checkout strategies with the bot. You can use the fast mode without forcing Captcha or run Cyborg mode for a slower (but less bannable) checkout.



Sneakers purchasing limit is enforced via IP-blocking

Another cool feature Nike Shoe Bot has is the inject password function, which lets you enter a password for a running task. This is great if the release is password-protected. A lot of bots don’t have this feature. The same thing for link injection – NSB lets you inject a URL in case your monitor picks up on something but the checkout does not start.

Lastly, Nike Shoe Bot has a nice active Discord server with a global monitor and early links for most drops. Usually, you can expect to get a link 1-2 hours before a drop. As you probably know, joining a cook group is a must if you want to cop those grails.

Frequently asked questions about Nike Shoe Bot


Does Nike Shoe Bot work?

Yes, it is one of the best sneaker bots around. It gets regular updates and has some of the most advanced features, including auto-generating one click Captcha tokens and link/password insertion.

What is the best bot for sneakers?

Every bot has its pros and cons. Choosing the best sneaker bot depends a lot on your target site because a great bot for BAPE might be useless for Shopify, etc. Most of the time a good sneaker bot must have a virtual private server (VPS) and residential proxies to work properly. That’s why there’s no clear ‘best’ sneaker bot.

Are sneaker bots illegal?

Contrary to popular belief, sneaker bots are completely legal. Top sneaker sites try to prevent bots from copping limited edition goods by implementing various obstacles, like Captcha. Bots use residential proxies to decrease Captcha rates. Ticket bots are illegal only in the US, though.
