Whats stopping someone on ebay/instagram from saying something is authentic when its really not ?
Theres few different bootleg qualities out there.. some noticeable obviously, and theres some really great quality bootlegs that not even the best sneaker head could tell the difference..
Ive noticed a lot of instagrams, new shoe sites and ebay sellers with thousands of feedbacks are claiming 100% authentic shoes, but I know for a fact they are bootleg..
1. Way too many people with shoes before release dates. Test shoes come out, some people really do got the plug on shoes.. but Jordans a few months before they come out
them is fake..
2. When I go to ebay, to look for some shoes, people with 2000+ positive feedback, I check the 1-5 negative they might of received over the past 12 months, the way they type its obvious they are from China (I used to deal with china sellers all the time).
Lets take a look at this instagram;
aint nothing real about these shoes.. but he sellin em for $280 a pop and telling people they real..
