No surprise — Travis Scott’s Fragment Design Air Jordan 1 collaboration release is sold out. Sneakerheads hoping to get their hands on La Flame’s latest kicks are out of luck, unless they’re willing to pay thousands of dollars more than the retail price of the shoe.
The unlucky group quickly voiced their frustration on the Cactus Jack discord channel and on Twitter, sharing links to tweets from people who used sneaker bots to unfairly get the shoes.
One user shared a screenshot showing they used an automated bot software Linear AIO to enter the raffle 25,000 times. Also sharing another screenshot revealing a series of pending transactions for the sneakers. While another Twitter user showed a screenshot of 32,000 raffle entries and an email inbox with 87 new messages for checkout.

@trvisXX This kinda stuff is disheartening. You try and try as a fan to show love and support for the artist and no matter how hard you try you lose to a bot who enters thousands of times. I mean… I'm gonna keep trying… but odds are against us fans. ? https://t.co/T8QO8QWtTJ
