Default Fake Kicks - Jordans etc

Hey guys ive been buying a few authentic Jordans lately and my addiction is growing.

I actually wear the shoes so im not interested in keeping them just for collection. I just brought some Jordan 6s and 7s last week and thats all good so i was out looking for some 11s online...

Thats when i found some sites selling fake 11s. Now i know a lot of people HATE fakes and i do also when trying to by authentics. But these fakes looked awesome. Some of the colourways were crazy nice!

I'm seriously thinking about getting some fake 11s just because they look so good. I think knowing that they are fake and paying only 40-50 bucks for them is ok as long as your not expecting authentic quality etc.

What do you guys think about fakes? I really really like these fake 11s but i dont know if i should buy. Maybe your opinion can sway me either way?

If anyone is interested i can post some of the colourways i thought were sick.

Peace.

Don't buy fakes. It de-values the actual shoe. If your a Jordan collector, you'd stand by this.

BTW, still want peoples info on if all fake promotion shoe sites should be banned. What do y'all think?

Fakes should all be put in one thread. Labeled "fake jordans".

Fakes claming to be real or spamming should be banned.

Yeah i dont like when fakes are claim to be real.

But when you know its fake and know the the quality may be low but the outer looks of it is nice do you think its okay to buy it?

If youre not buying the sneakers to help you in basketball, just for the looks, you should definately buy them.

Those shoes you posted are ugly and they are screaming FAKE!

The only ones i would consider are the second to the last because its a nice color combo.

ban fake promoters.

and straight up, even if you are buying those kicks for the look its still really lame. reasons why?, Cuz ppl on the street that know kicks will look at ur feet and laugh... some girls will get fooled, but having fake kicks, aint a good look. Its like wearing a Bape sweater with colours that havent even come out, it may look good, but it doesnt get any respect and its mad sloppy.

Oh okay im with you now.

Yes i think you should ban them because its free advertising. They really should pay Jeff if they want to use his board for ads.

I think personal opinons on sites based on a persons experience is fine but not just spamming ads.

If you do buy the fakes though, I urge you not to play in them. They are terribl for support. I have alot of friends that pick them up in the Philippines and tried them on the court. A high % of injuries always occur.
