It's one per account. 

Did anybody get one?  Mine just says "pending"...

Are the children's sizes worth anything? Looks like those are still available.

I tried for those at like 10:05 when I realized there were kid's sizes, but those all sold out also.

I don't think it's bots. It's just odds. hundreds of thousands of people trying to buy a few thousand pairs of shoes means you have a 1/100 or less chance of getting one. Milliseconds matter here. I ordered just before 10:01 and got the "pending" then "sold out".

What's the pending all about? Why not fulfill the order when one checks out?

   Assuming you had a chance for the order to go through the pending status would probably still be there?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Just annoying because of the way it works; you don't have an opportunity to try for another size if the one you wanted was sold out.

Their system probably can't handle that kind of traffic. They are afraid of overselling.

Technicaly that's exactly how it's supposed to work ! Remember you are supposed to buy for you, and your foot are one size ? It doesn't change based on the availability of the shoes

There are most definitely bots involved. People, too, but mainly bots.
Failing at maintaining Lurker status.

Placed the order at 10:08 for a size 11 as well and nadda.
 Showed pending then sold out.

 What did it say online? Pending then?

 Assuming you got an email confirmation.
Good for you.

Surprised that worked for you. I ordered a size eleven literally seconds after 10:00am and went pending for a while until it cancelled. Oh well

My buying group only got one kids pair. If anyone wants to join, PM. I will be doing shoes, coins and other limited edition items.

I was offering $130 commision (minus taxes pd) for the adult and $50 for the kids and toddler (only bc i didnt have time to research the resale price of the smaller versions)
