Default Legit Check.

www.mostkicks.com

I'm kind of a "noob" in the shoe world. I'm pretty sure a site like this is fake. All the shoes are $60 and have tons of sizes... like 7-15.

If the shoes are "fake" what does that mean? Does it mean they're not legit jordans or just the shoes don't even exist, they just steal your money...?

By the looks of even the first shoe, it looks very fake.

When a shoe is fake, it has extremely poor quality, and would last you about a week of playing basketball or even just walking in them. Don't buy a single thing from that site, unless you want to throw away your money.

Not necessarily that fast.

A few years, I bought some fakes from ebay (on accident). They claimed to be real but the colors just looked wrong.

The paint chipped away faster than usual and the insoles sucked. But the grip was decent for a shoe I paid $60 for and I still wear them occasionally for muddy days or balling on a court that will mess up your kicks. Basically, they are beaters now.

Lasted a few years though.

BTW, any site that has a full size run on rare jordans and is asking for a fixed (and ridiculously low) price is usually fake. Especially when they have the 23's.

You think getting some fake retro 13's for $80 is too steep?

It's really hard for me to find J's in my size... 14... They actually had em.

Search online, you'll find some great deals on big sizes like that.

Big companies that can't sell those sizes in stores. Sell them to smaller sites in bulk for super low prices. The consumer reaps the reward of having big feet.

Check some of the legit sites from hateraid's stickied thread.

Look at the stores that are selling on ebay and go to their actual website.

You'll find better deals there.
