The report said he spent more than $100,000 on the card to buy limited-edition shoes and flip them for a profit. In one instance, he said he gathered more than 15 people to swarm a website selling pairs of coveted Yeezy Boost 350 Zyon sneakers and then used bots to bypass a system designed to limit purchases to one pair per customer. He said he bought $132,000 worth of Yeezys on a credit card and resold them for a $20,000 profit.

“If you know the right people here, this is the city to sell shoes,” he told Bloomberg. The right people “can give you access to stuff that, like, a normal person would not have access to.”
