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.
