Welcome back to our weekly introduction to the sneaker industry and the ins and outs of it all! Last week we covered everything you need to know about Footsites. However, we didn’t go into the details of Footsites proxies, which are a very important part of the copping process. Probably just as important as the sneaker bot you’re running. So let’s go through the whole process to get the best experience using NSB!

What Are Proxies?

When you step foot in the industry, you’re probably in for the money or the exclusive sneakers! However, it’s not as easy as you think it is. Nowadays, it’s pretty hard to get a pair fair and square, let alone several ones, without a sneaker bot. Luckily, bots like NSB got you covered with the speed, high technology, and bypasses. But even the best Footsites bot (or any) bot, won’t be able to give you the results you want on its own. That’s why you’ll need proxies.

footsites proxies mask IP

Before we get on to proxies you should know that every PC, laptop, or device that can be connected to the internet has an Internet Protocol (IP) Address. They’re just like your home address, but for devices. Every device has its own IP Address so the internet knows which data to send for every user out there. So it acts as the connection between you and anything you do or any server you connect to on the internet.

Proxies, or proxy servers, act as a mask to your IP address, so the internet doesn’t really know where you are in the world. So they provide privacy to a certain extent. But how does that come into the Footsites hassle?

Most of the time, when there’s an exclusive sneaker dropping, each user is limited to one pair. But naturally, we want more, and this is where proxies come in. When you use several proxies, it looks like you’re at many different places at once! Thus, you have the chance to get a pair from each different address. But naturally, it’s not as simple as it sounds. There are two different types of Footsites proxies that you can choose to use. Let’s check them out.

Difference Between Residential and Data Center Proxies

Residential Proxies

Now that we got the general idea of what proxies are, we’re gonna go into some detail about them. Residential proxies (or resis) are linked to actual IP addresses that exist in real life. They’re less likely to get banned by Footsites because they look like an authentic IP address. However, they’re usually slower than Data Center (DC) proxies. So they’re not a lot of help if the drop is on a first-come-first-served basis. Or when the stock is VERY LOW and sells out in minutes.

Data Center Proxies

Data Center proxies are the polar opposite of resis. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) usually provide this type of proxies. So they’re more generic and can be caught as UNREAL pretty easily. They’re much faster than resis but are more subject to get banned if they get caught.

Which Should You Use as Footsites Proxies?

Each type of proxies has its pros and cons. That’s why we recommend going for a healthy mix of both! That way, you get both grounds covered. If Footsites ban one, you still have the other. And on another note, Footsites proxies are not really exclusive to footsites, as you can use them in different types of websites. So all in all, Footsites proxies are just another label for a certain type of proxies.

Best Footsites Proxies Providers

Now that you know what is what, let’s get to business! Here’s a list of some of the best Footsites Proxies providers (in no particular order). But naturally, you’re always welcome to dabble and try on your own.

Author’s Note

Here are some tips to get the most out of your Footsites proxies experience, or your general botting experience.

  • Always try to balance both Residential and DC proxies, and go for Footsites proxies from different providers.
  • If you’re serious about going into botting, try joining bot discord channels. They usually have setup channels that you can refer to.
  • You can also see what proxy plans other successful users are using. What works successfully on NSB might not work on another bot. However, the Footsites proxies list we gave you here should do well on several bots.
  • DC Footsites proxies are currently more consistent, especially on hyped drops when there’s high security on sites.
  • ALWAYS keep up with the ever-changing proxy trends. There are always new providers that could outdo older ones. After all, the industry is always evolving and expanding. So always do your research to find what works best for you. Godspeed!
