Only dudes not caring about oversized fragment logos or incorrect shade of blue on their royals are the clowns that do this for IG... pretty soon they'll move on to the next wave. Sneakers and having a sneaker collection is like a damn trend right now. It's on par with having tha latest iphone or apple watch.
A lot of info in this thread but I want to point out the fact that fakes and UAs never get everything 100% right. To the untrained eye 100% stops at color blocking lol but to us on these forums and blogs we can spot the differences whether it be the materials used, incorrect color, misshapen molds, lines and stitching not meeting correctly, etc. Basically we does this lol
Now I don't want to see nobody else sitting here defending fakes and UAs on some quality is better bs. Fakes don't get everything right. The leather is not the same grade whether nike uses real hides or synthetic materials, these factories are using leftovers and if they run out materials to make fake Bordeauxs they won't hesitate to improvise and use materials for a different shoe. Ain't no b grades in fakes, they're just sold at a lower price point. This is that tiered system. Barbershop vs website. Plug overseas vs back alley shop in NY somewhere. Both fakes, just some made better. Bottom line is, find the best fake or UA and put it beside a nike authentic. Upon first glance it might look very similar, but rip the tongue out and look at the padding, dissect the shoe, squeeze the midsole and rubber outsole, you'll see the differences.
