Stricter Apple Pay?

Was it the macOS 10.14.4 update that has made password security much tougher for the end user? Whenever Safari’s autofill attempts to fill out a form, I’m not prompted to provide a fingerprint or enter a password. Previously, the autofill did its magic. From a security standpoint, this is probably better, but when you’re in […]

More Eastbay Games

I thought I was done and over with Eastbay’s games after I eventually placed my order succesfully. Though potentially still a success, my order has hit a significant snag that starts off like this: Thank you for your order. We are currently out-of-stock, however…

Shoe Palace May Be the Worst

Okay, EastBay and Finish Line may actually be pardoned after what I witnessed with ShoePalace.com. During a hyped release, you’ll see this timer counting down from two minutes. The accompanying text is below: PLEASE WAIT… You are probably seeing this because something HOT is going on right now — a new release, a restock, or […]

Finish Line Wasn’t Any Better

So I went on a roller coaster ride with Eastbay, but buying on Finish Line wasn’t any better. Finish Line’s site uses a queue system to regulate purchases. First, there’s a queue just to get to the site itself during busy times. After a long time, I eventually got through the queue, added my shoe, […]

ResExp: Expectations

Really, when it comes down to it, it’s about setting and managing realistic expectations. That’s another key distinguishing point between #coppingkicks and #rossfinds. For whatever reason those indulging in #coppingkicks are expecting to get every sneaker they go after. They’ll always expect the “W” and not just for a single pair but multiple pairs of […]

ResExp: (Sneaker) Size Matters

Whether #coppingkicks or searching for #rossfinds, one notable distinction is that size matters. It really matters. Success in one field doesn’t equate to success in the other. So here it goes. When doing the #rossfinds thing, you’re hoping to score men’s shoes sized 9-12. These are the most common men’s sizes, so therefore, you have […]

ResExp: May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

The kicks game comes down to the odds plain and simple. Even with all the tech, all the servers, all the software, and all the accounts, the main goal is to increase your odds of being able to purchase a pair of shoes. That’s it. All the aforementioned simply help you maximize your odds of […]

ResExp: Buying High End Kicks Is High Tech

The most obvious observation of buying high end kicks aka #coppingkicks is how high tech it is. Software bots, monitors, quick tasks, cloud-based servers, virtual machines, VPN, proxies, and more are just some of the tech you’ll need to be familiar with if you want the high end. It’s amazing to see what tools are […]

ResExp: A Costly Lesson Learned

Whenever you’re learning something new, you’re bound to make mistakes. While you can research topics to no end, sometimes, there’s no better way than learning by actually trying… and failing. Like this. You see, I didn’t realize what ATC links were while #coppingkicks. And in a frenzy trying to purchase profitable Off-White Air Force Ones, […]

ResExp: Risk Versus Reward

For the sake of brevity, I’ll refer to buying higher end items as #coppingkicks and buying discounted items as #rossfinds. Okay, with that out of the way, let’s briefly talk about the risk of either endeavor. With #rossfinds, you’re looking at discounted items, so costs of items are accordingly discounted. The risk of buying these […]

ResExp: Testing and Timing the High End

For most of the year, my reselling experience has focused on affordable sourcing from Ross aka #rossfinds. But for the month of December, with the crowds and long lines at Ross, I went in a different direction. I experimented with higher end commodities like items from Supreme and costly kicks. And you know what? Lots […]
