Default Promotion of Fake shoe sites

I'm all for people doing their thing and trying to make an extra buck but a string of you are coming on here and making like you're selling the real deal at a great price. That's ripping off the general public. So just to be ethical, please state that your product is not authentic.
But for the vote of the general posters what do you feel should be doen.

a) allow people to continue advertising
b) delete posts immediately

Sorry to post this but ISH is my people and I wouldn't want them to get ripped off unless they intentionally want to buy fakes.

Delete/ban dude. Most of us already know Eastbay is basically the 1 place you go online for authentic shoes. These guys are getting free advertising to basically 1000 people and they aren't even selling the real deal.

Thanks BM, but you can't blame someone to want to make a quick buck. I'm really more concerned that they're not doing it in an ethical manner. Veiwers should be warned that the products in the sites are fake. But if the general consensus on this board is the delete, it shall be done. Jeff, PM me on what you think. Or post on here.

BTW BM, you've been really active in the Kings forum. Exellent job!

Thanks, I just try to get discussion started, post articles, and hopefully once the season starts my forum will have even more activity.

But on topic: I just don't see why ISH should let these guys promote their fake shoes. Also have a question about this:

Could ISH(Jeff) get in trouble if people find out that these guys are selling them fake shoes, and they wasted hundreds of dollars on them? I mean because they are advertising them on insidehoops, and it is false advertising. I'm no expert about this or anything but it's something I thought might be worth asking.

Yeah you can't blame them for wanting to make a buck, but they're selling fake stuff. They don't even contribute anything to the site by posting/doing other stuff. Not to mention it seems like it clutters the place up.

I dunno get some more opinions on this.

As long as they clearly state that the shoes are not authentic then I say let them do their thing. I just really hate when people insist that their stuff is auth when they know it isn't. All of us on here know the difference by now so don't insult people's intelligence. I would be more likely to buy from someone who tells the truth. Sometimes I want a color that isn't made auth but I won't buy from someone who trying to lie to me.

Well, for one, Nike and other shoe companies spend alot of time and money on R&D for technology in the shoes we wear. Buying cheap poorly made fakes don't support this, you have talented people designing shoes to be knocked-off by some overseas manufacturer looking to make a quick buck. That's just unethical. Bottom line... fakes are fakes inside and out. Would you buy a fake Ferrari just coz it looked like it? Not taking into account the quality of the engine, parts and such? I wouldn't. It sucks to see so many people wearing fakes its sad.

There's a great article in Sneaker Freaker's Vol 8., where they interview Richard Stanwix, head of Brand Security for Nike. They go into the whole fakes issue. Look for it, it's really informative and shows a good prespective on why you shouldn't support buying fake shoes.

Very true and Its just not right to take someone elses logo and put it on a product that they dont make or even have anything to do with. These products are very poorly made and fall apart, There is another good article about it in the first issue of Sole magazine.

Dude what are you really saying..... It is illegal to sale counterfeit shoes, so why are you condoning this....because that is what you are doing. Just because they tell people that they are fakes doesn't make it alright.



ISH needs to ban these d0uchebags that sell counterfeit shoes.

It doesn't matter whether they state their shlt is fake or not....they are still breaking the law, and flooding a bunch of fake kicks on the market.

People know my stance on fakes and the distribution of fakes. I've literally screened and deleted dozens of counterfeit sites already. Some do slip throught the cracks. But one thing you got to understand that this is still a public message board and it's primary category is basketball, shoes are a sub category and there is still a practice of freedom of speech. But I go by what the masses request and most have agreed with me to delete these posts.
