    Why do some of you think GOAT would be any better than StockX at authenticating?

    better than eBay and resellers

    Goat and Stockx authenticating process is the same. Only thing is Goat has an extra step for Quality Control (i.e, any scuffs, marks, dust, accessories, etc..) thats why they're more picky on letting stuff pass authentication because they have a separate step for the whole QC team

    From what I know they have dedicated teams for each brand/shoes

    Instead of stockX where joe blow is Authenticating every shoe known to man

    I’m on here all the time, around kicks, there’s only a few shoes I can actually legit check so I’m sorry I don’t believe there’s many people out there with the expertise to legit check every shoe and model with 100% accuracy especially in the time stockX legit checks shoes as shown in a few videos

    GOAT and SX lowered resell prices.

    Everyone knows to wait until shipments start coming in, to wait for the undercutting to buy.

    I would have never been able to get Unions for $530 or whatever I paid before StockX.

    And it's a different reseller. StockX and GOAT make it so anyone can sell a sneaker without a hassle. On eBay you have to worry about someone trying to scam.

    Same dudes that were selling on Ebay sell on goat or sx. As far as the scamming part on Ebay I just said that bro. Undercutting went on with Ebay except you didn't get an email everytime it happened. GOAT and SX just rolled up and taxed all the sellers it ain't rocket science.

    Lol wasn’t there a thread on NT where some cat quit after one day of working as a StockX NTer? Son said he got into his car and cried.

    StockX authentication process is completely suspect. That said, I buy and sell on there. The onus is on you.

    Do you work for eBay? Why are you getting upset and taking this personal? You mentioned scamming? So...I decided to mention it again. Because it's a very important factor that makes it different.

    It's no where near the same, I've been buying kicks on eBay for almost 20 years. And I do a lot more selling of stuff I don't want on StockX than I ever did on eBay. Because I don't have to worry about dudes lying and say they didn't get what I sent. Since there's virtually no seller protection.

    eBay requires you to message a person, wait for them to respond.

    Also eBay doesn't require them to ship in a certain time.

    and eBay was making money from everything in the process from the seller doing absolutely nothing. So not a good point. To the point now that they've raised the prices on transferring with PayPal if you want to do it the same day.

    What does where I work have to do with anything :lol: idgaf about Ebay sx or GOAT as long as I get paid it doesn't matter. You proved my point that it's the same sellers on each platform because you're one of em. All that typing and nothing refutes my original comment that GOAT and SX Debo'd the resale market. (No one's ever had to message me to buy my Ebay items)

    Apparently everything, because you don't get sarcasm. And it looks like I was right. You're hurt that it affected your eBay 401K, huh :ohwell:

    It's the same sellers. Also gives 'recreational' sellers a chance to spread sales across multiple selling platforms to avoid getting a 1099.

    Looks like you puffing the magic dragon, where did I say I work there. I guess you were being sarcastic because I said something negative about Ebay it means I must work there. You dont really know what sarcasm means do you

    right fake
    wings logo not touching stitching
    swoosh not sharp enough and is placed a little too low
    blue stitching is not tight near the lace holes
    red heel leather comes at a sharp angle is not as rounded as authentics

    Black leather around the toe cap is tumbled which is a dead giveaway.

    Damn, fakes are getting good if you're just buying to flex - not resell. :wow:
    Like, if I see somebody walking around with those fakes, it wouldn't even cross my mind that they are fake.

    yeah basically, you gotta be pretty trained to see that if you didn't have a real pair to compare

    hence why you got communities on reddit dedicated to fakes because some are so good now unless you're trying to trick someone, on feet no one telling

    Plus, it's kinda weird to be going up to someone you don't know to point out their gear is fake. I don't care enough in real life to outwardly call them out on it.

    I don’t care if someone is wearing real or fakes, I only care that mine are real.
