Adidas is a sportswear manufacturer that designs shoes, clothing, and other sports accessories. It is the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe and the second largest in the world, second only to Nike. Everything Adidas does is rooted in sports, whether it be advancing new technologies for footwear or developing other innovative products.
With the sneaker craze and Adidas’ popularity, obtaining the latest Adidas sneakers is extremely difficult. Especially on the limited edition sneakers, supply simply cannot keep up with the demand for it. New releases usually go out of stock only moments after it becomes available. The only way to buy these highly sought after sneakers is to get them from a reseller or copping them yourself using sneaker bots. Bots operate faster than any human can realistically do and can get multiple sneakers before a user can get even one.
Adidas, along with other online retail shops, have extremely strict restrictions on bots or other automated tools. Adidas will immediately block any account suspected of using one. The best way around these policies would be to use proxies. Proxies, specifically sneaker proxies, enable you to simultaneously purchase multiple sneakers on any sneaker shop without getting flagged and banned by them. Not just any proxy would work though. You need the best proxies available from the best proxy providers there are in the market.
The best Adidas proxies to use would be residential proxies. These types of proxies use actual residential IPs from real devices making any purchase you make with your bot appear like a different user. Datacenter proxies, although faster than residential proxies, aren’t secure enough to not be banned by Adidas and if a datacenter subnet is banned then all the IPs would become useless.
Let’s set up a Adidas proxy server.
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save
To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
To set up an Adidas mobile proxy server, simply change your phone’s proxy settings. The web browser you’re using for Adidas will automatically copy your phone’s proxy settings whenever you use it. This is applicable for both Android and IOS. Here’s a thorough guide for Android and another one for iPhone.
Congratulations! You have now finished configuring an Adidas proxy server. Note that the first time you visit it, there will be a pop up asking for your login credentials.
Note: Make sure that the web browser you’re using for Adidas is set to automatically copy your computer’s proxy settings. Google Chrome automatically does this, so it’s recommended to use it.
