The shoe market crosses over into the fashion market as well. Many of the people that buy reps just want the look regardless of the brand. They use my earlier argument as a reason to go through with it because in all actuality, whose going to point out the fact that they are reps? In other words, they don't care who or wear the design came from. They just want it. Many people don't even know they are reps and aren't using insecure methods. They are going on Ali express and using PayPal thinking that they are buying "Trill Hip Hop Gothninja Boots".
You'd be gullible to think someone would spend $200 on some shoes without knowing who's shoes they are. Especially if they are going through the sources necessary to get these reps in the first place because we all know that if these reps get on ebay they wouldn't be sold for $200.
The people buying these $200 reps know exactly what they are doing. The people that buy $75 flea market versions of fakes are likely the people that don't care and just wanted a pair of shoes for cheap.
