the shoes in the pictures are clearly authentic
however, original paper tag has been photoshopped over
This notification doesn't automatically mean it's fake. I received a similar email when I purchased a Jordan XIV last shot. The pair they received had some defects which didn't pass their verification process. The KaWS could very well be authentic but it may had some defects or may have been slightly worn (minor crease) etc...
thats nuts i bought two pairs from stockx already very smooth transactions on both. i copped kaws and ovo 12s in black both very legit
