"Cop" is a slang term used in the sneaker community to describe the act of purchasing a new release. It is commonly used in the phrase "Cop or Drop?", which refers to the decision of whether or not to buy a particular sneaker. When someone says they are going to "cop" a sneaker, it means they are planning on buying it. This term is often used in reference to limited edition or highly sought-after releases, which can be difficult to obtain. Some sneaker enthusiasts may use bots or other automated methods to increase their chances of "copping" a rare release.
