So, you’ve just bought a pair of fakes or are looking to get a pair of fake Jordan shoes, but someone is giving you grief over it. Here’s some things to consider. I would say that stigmatizing people based of off the authenticity of their clothes is a form of classism. You never know someone’s financial situation; it is unfair to put this pressure on the average human to purchase retail versions of their favorite clothes. For some of us it simply isn’t an option. What is important to consider is that often times when one purchases a pair of Jordans they are taking a serious hit to their bank account, this is actually hilarious when you consider the fact that shoes like Jordans are used as a status symbol to show off how much money you have. Another reason why fakes aren’t so bad is that they are often times made with the exact same materials. Okay, let’s be honest, often times there are fakes that are released that are so bad you can’t help but laugh. But nowadays the quality is getting better and better, and with many sellers using PayPal as a guarantee to their product, you can usually rely on them to come through with quality shoes.

Another reason why you should consider ‘Fake Jordans’ is the massively inflated price of sneakers once they sell out. Have you ever gone to buy a pair of Jordans at their retail price of like $250 only to find that they’re sold out and only selling for prices in the thousands? Obviously the shoes didn’t become thousands of dollars more valuable after release, so why did they increase in price so much? They increased I price due to sneaker heads and hype beasts buying the product out in hopes of it sky rocketing in price, and the worst part? Nike relies on this behavior to sell products. That the beauty of Fakes, because they have a much larger supply of shoes, they’ll never have price spikes like that.
