Here's a problem with fakes, dudes are selling fake shoes as if they were real. Look, I don't care if they are "perfect" lol or 1:1, If I'm paying $100+ for shoes, I better get the real thing.

Also, why would you want the fake version? Just to save money? That's fine. But if somebody is going to ask you about your shoes or jersey, are you going to tell them it's fake? Probably not and that right there is just lame. Buying something just to look cool? Very lame.

But if we're talking "grey market" sneakers, that's a whole different story.
what's that?

If you're just going for looks, there's nothing wrong with fake shoes. But the tech and performance are definitely shady. Quality control is obviously bad with fake shoes so you don't know what you're getting. A badly designed shoes could cause discomfort and injuries.

Besides, shoes are something that you wear for at least 6 month. Often years for good quality shoes. Most Nikes/Jordan cost around $100+ which is not that expensive considering that durability.

Where do you buy your fake NFL jerseys from?

Sounds like you're talking about replica/swingman vs. authentic, in which case those replicas aren't "fake" since they are made by the official jerseymaker.
