Kaws, whose real name is Brian Donnelly, is an American artist and designer famous for designing clothing and toys. His work has been displayed in multiple museums and even famous celebrities have purchased some of his work. One of Kaws’ biggest collaborations though, came from the sneaker brand Jordan. This collaboration featured Kaws designing a Jordan sneaker colorway aptly named “KAWS”.
The problem with purchasing these sneakers is that it would be sold out before you can even purchase one. It is quite difficult to purchase sneakers especially for limited-edition KAWS colorways. You need the help of a sneaker bot to streamline the purchase and checkout process for you as a sneaker bot can complete that entire process in an instant.
Most websites though, especially sneaker sites or footsites, have a strict policy against the use of bots on their website. If those websites detect that you’re using a bot then your order will be immediately canceled and your account and IP address automatically banned.
To prevent this from happening you need the help of a Kaws proxy. A Kaws proxy will handle all of your web requests for you, including your bot. This means that any website you visit will only be able to see the IP address of the proxy server and not your own. Through continuously rotating proxies, your sneaker bot will have a different IP address each time you purchase a sneaker.
However, to totally prevent websites from detecting that you’re using a Kaws sneaker bot while also using a proxy, then you need to use the best Kaws proxies available, which are residential proxies. Residential proxies use residential IPs from actual devices making your sneaker bot’s requests appear as if it were from genuine users. This completely deceives any website from detecting your bot and preventing you from getting IP banned.
Let’s set up a Kaws proxy server.
Note: Make sure that the web browser you’re using for Kaws is set to automatically copy your computer’s proxy settings. Google Chrome automatically does this, so it’s recommended to use it.
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 a Kaws proxy server for your mobile device, simply change your phone’s proxy settings. The web browser you’re using for Kaws 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 a Kaws proxy server. Note that the first time you visit it, there will be a pop up asking for your login credentials.
