What's up with these 'urban' stores, that a year or so ago had no kicks in stock...all of the sudden have every fake bape colorway with fake hoody to match, and now I'm seeing bootleg AF1s in the heart of Scaroboro...its getting bad out here.

Obviously this has been going on for a little while, it just hit me last week at Scarborough Town I haven't been there in a minute...I was like..WHAT THE??

Basically the law of wide spread of fakes is proportional to the popularity of the product.

Hype + Fad + Pricey items = Influx of fakes

yea, it's pretty crappy, i dont really bother buying stuff up here. I find it funny how hard these guys try to pass off their stuff as being legit though. "we have some hot new Bape gear"....ok buddy

The average torontonian is fake anyways so i guess they got the clothes to go along with the mentality.

So this dude joined a message board that my boys and I run and is trying to push fakes. I really feel like doing something really grimey to this dude, maybe talking to Nike to see if they could do something about it.

I really think we need to put together a task force to stop Toronto from being flooded with fake sneakers. What do ya'll think? Jordan Police maybe?

Sixfoot - I wasn't born here, but when i came over here, that's the 1 thing i noticed, folk are so fake and on their own **** over here. There's some real genuine folk here too, but there's just an abundance of fake people here with no identity...that's just my opinion though.

Canada is known around the world for being full of fake items. I have a friend who used to work at customs and he tells me they couldnt care less if they found fake shoes, they would just let them through. The government will have to take it more serious in order to get fake items off the market. I live in the North York and see at least 5 pairs of fakes Js a day at work. I think it is so sad that guys are selling these shoes for over $100 bucks to naive kids claiming they are the real deal.

A guy I train with tried to sell fakes to one of our teammates claiming they were legit.

People need to get a conscience!!!!

I like that there are alot of fake Bapes out there, with so many morons rocking them, eventually abape will phase out and go away, Once a brand hits its peak its all down hill after, just like Tommy hilfiger and the gap.... now if only they made fake gino green global

Even Halifax, NS is full of fakes. There are two stores selling Fape sneakers and hoodies. And one of them with a ton of fake LRG, Bape, BBC, Ice Cream and even 10 Deep.

It just sucks because this year two legit sneaker/streetwear stores finally opened in Halifax and people are buying fakes. The place with tons of fake streetwear is selling knock off 10 Deep hoodies for $150... barely even reducing the cost from the real thing.

NP83, are you from Halifax?

I mentioned them as(soled out) one of two (the other is KRISP, but its much more of a clothing boutique than a sneaker place right now) that is selling legit sneakers and streetwear. But yeah, the mark up on some of that stuff is just incredibly painful. Occasionally they have good sales, (I got the clerks pack stabs for $100 tax included) but their normal prices are through the roof.

They can be sort of vague on what sort of account they're running. What I've heard is that they have a very low level account and any limited release stuff they get is just them reselling left over stock from an American store. This would also explain their absolutely nuts size runs. (i.e. often having sneakers in sizes 7-9 and 12-12.5 or some other wierd runs)

They're nice guys but I have no idea as to what's happening with their account.
