After dropping via select skate retailers this past weekend, consumers had another “chance”to get their hands on Ben and Jerry’s delicious Chunky Dunkys. The coveted collector’s item is being offered to consumers via Nike SNKRS today.
However, the sneaker has officially sold out already.
Arguably, the sneaker is the collaboration of the year. With its unique design it might also be one of the wackiest of all-time. These ice cream-inspired kicks have generated an insane amount of excitement. Just look at the resell prices, they currently reflect 10x its retail tag in pretty much every size.

From the detailed images of the friends and family giant pint packaging, the kicks are truly one-of-a-kind.

A Glitch In The Sneaker Matrix
However, people who tried their luck this one last time through the Swoosh’s draw system, felt that the shenanigans were afoot.

From complaints about the constantly rejecting SNKRS website to the overall process, the sneaker head community has spoken. With upcoming releases like the Nike Dunk Hi Retro, expected to release in several color ways next year, buyers want a balanced buying process sans bots.

Bots are an autonomous program on a network, especially the Internet, that can interact with computer systems or users. People program them to place multiple entries giving the person a better chance at getting a pair.
