It has emerged that Supreme will be banning users found to be using a bot to purchase goods from the brand’s online store. Most commonly used by sneakerheads for limited Nike drops, bots can be used to purchase specific products in lightning quick time. Twitter user @TheSupremeSaint recently tweeted that the brand is now banning the IP addresses based upon “how frequent you Poll Supreme’s website via refresher or bot.”

The move, much like Nike’s recently launched raffle system, is designed to reward the brand’s many cult followers, rather than those who employ dastardly tactics in the aim of making a quick buck on the resell market.
