Introduction to Sneaker Monitors and How They Help You Cop Sneakers

Alijah Landing

Tools and information. You’ve probably seen us touting these before as reasons to join our community. We want to take you under the hood and give you a closer peek at one of our most important tools, sneaker monitors. 

Sneaker monitors are a technology our team has created to surveil the sites of 100s of retailers worldwide. They’re looking for releases, stock levels, and restocks, as soon as they identify a new product (not just sneakers, apparel and collectibles too) on a site they’ll notify you and send you a direct link to purchase. Notifications can be received in one of two ways, via Slack or via Drop Alerts. 

In Slack, the notifications will populate in the corresponding #monitor channel. Peep the example below ⬇️ You’ll be able to see the name of the shoe, the retailer, a photo of the shoe, price, time of the release, sizes available, and be provided with a direct link to purchase. 

Hosted within the SoleSavy app, Drop Alerts are personalized mobile push notifications with direct links to purchase sneakers and other items like apparel and collectibles. With a few simple steps you’re seconds away from having sneakers at your fingertips:

  • Download the SoleSavy app (iOS or Google Play app store)
  • Log in (only available for premium members)
  • Set up and personalize keywords for the sneakers you’re looking for (ex: Dunk Low Black, Air Max 1, Jordan 1, Shattered Backboard, Orange Blaze) The more specific you can be, the better Drop Alerts will work. We’ll have recommendations on keywords in each release guide.
  • When a sneaker restocks or shock drops at one of the hundreds of retailers we monitor, receive an alert instantly to your phone.
  • Tap on the alert, click on your size, and be instantly taken to checkout. (tip: use autofill or Apple/Google/Samsung pay for even quicker checkout)

You may be wondering about the difference between Slack notifications and Drop Alerts. We recommend Slack monitors for our desktop users (also make sure you’re using Assist for optimal checkout), and Drop Alerts for our members on mobile. 

As fast as any bot, with sneaker monitors we’re putting the power back into the hands of those that love sneakers the most. Gone are the days of refreshing a site at 10am EST, waiting for a Twitter link, or stalking the new releases tab waiting for a release. Our monitors are always at work, so you don’t have to be.

Join SoleSavy today to become part of our amazing community of sneaker enthusiasts and gain access to resources and information that’ll help you get sneakers, grow your collection, and so much more.


Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
