These kinds of places get shoes made in factories close to the Nike Factories. Have you missed any of the Chickenwop convos on Niketalk? There are plenty who have addressed it and can explain it better than me. And @JRepp23, the photos you posted are from a different era, but look at the Nike.com photos of the recent Tinker 6. The sample has a different tongue than the retail pair on the Skrs app.
