I Bought a Fake Yeezy

Like all intellectual property protection laws and people’s traditional moral values ​​advocate, I have never considered buying any counterfeit brand products a few years ago. Of course, there may be a reason why I have control over my financial situation only from ten years ago. During this period, I have never been as crazy about Yeezy’s shoes.

Besides, if not stated otherwise, the Yeezy mentioned below are Yeezy Boost under Adidas.

Given the brand value of Yeezy, the reason why these peculiar straw sandals make people crazy is very clear. Not only because of excellent design, but Adidas brand bonus, Kanye’s influence, the comfort of the shoe itself is also a very important factor.

Since its launch in 2015, Kanye West’s highly sought-after Adidas tennis shoe-Yeezy Boost 350s have been one of the hottest commodities on the football market. They are sold out within minutes of the new color drop and then resold to up to 10 times the original price of eBay.

This pair of shoes has gained avid followers on social media-Facebook group Yeezy Talk Worldwide has 140,000 members, and an Instagram account called Yeezy Mafia, dedicated to leaking information about the upcoming version, and has 280,000 Followers.

I know that when the effortless black-and-white “Oreo” Yeezys was released, I was one of the proud people who got it with a few pairs of my feet (feet), and the retail price was $220. I admit that the price of tennis shoes is not easy on the wallet. However, their unique position (think countless twists and praises) makes it worthwhile

Not to mention, the level of detail in each pair of shoes is perfect. Each pair is refined with a knitted appearance, woven in and out of various colors, bringing unmatched design to Yeezys.

Their comfort is breathtaking. The super-soft inner liner and iconic cushioned insole make me feel like walking in the clouds. If someone made a mattress with this material, I would heartbeat to speed up the purchase-dreaming of buying more Yeezys.

My First Yeezy

My first pair of Yeezy is Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebra. It cost about $350. However, in the years since my purchase, it has been restocked more than 4 times. I heard that the current price is only $220. I don’t know if this is true. If it is true, then I think I have enjoyed it for a long time in advance, and I have not lost anything.

About Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebra

The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘ Zebra ‘ released on February 25, 2017, combining an upper white / core black Primeknit with a red SPLY 350 branding and a full-length translucent midsole boost. On November 16, 2018, another restock of the ‘ Zebra ‘ arrived, with more pairs hitting the marketplace and building on Kanye’s commitment to making Yeezy more available to anyone who wished to acquire them.

The 2018 “Zebra” Yeezys feature the same color scheme as the initial release overall. But there are a few minor differences, such as a brighter shade of white for the outsole, brighter red for the “350 – SPLY” text on the Primeknit upper, different production dates on the inner size tag, and a different mold for the Boost foam outsole. The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 “Zebra 2018” released in November 2018.

My Yeezy 500

Well, later I also bought the Yeezy 500 series. They have a completely different appearance, which is exciting! I can try a Yeezy sneaker with a completely different appearance.

So this time, I bought YEEZY 500 “UTILITY BLACK”. It is a pair of all-black shoes. To be honest, I prefer light-colored shoes because they are very easy to match with clothes. But the black ones are also good. But to be honest, it is not black, but carbon black. I can match dark or medium washed denim and gray, black, or white tops. I put on flannel and it looks great with these different outfits! Consider the color of the shoes, don’t be afraid to try it.

What about the materials?

These materials are very good. Suede is not super buttery, but it must be lush and soft. It has a deliberately rough appearance and texture. At the same time, the leather is soft and the rubber part around the mudguard looks firm. In the end, some 3M pipes and accessories help make this otherwise dull color sparkle enough.

My Yeezy 700

Haha, Yeezy 700 of course! After reading several color schemes, I chose Yeezy Boost 700’Wave Runner’ without hesitation. The color of his cookies made me feel irresistible.

This inaugural colorway of Kanye West’s Yeezy Wave Runner 700 launched in November 2017, following a public debut earlier in the year as part of the Yeezy Season 5 runway show. The sneaker’s retro-inspired lines worked in tandem with a chunky silhouette reminiscent of an earlier era. A mesh base is finished in grey on the quarter panels and bright blue and teal on the forefoot. Suede overlays arrive on the toe and heel accented grey leather eyestays. Other details include neon green laces, a bulky white midsole, and pops of black and bright orange.

And, Yeezy 700 OG is still the most popular product. This is likely to become the ultimate chunky coach. More than 45% of people think this is the most attractive in the 700 series.

Where did I buy it

Although I used to go to the store to wait for the sale very early, it was a torment! And I didn’t buy it. That is really frustrating! So I bought Yeezy from StockX and eBay. As long as you pay attention to distinguish, they can be trusted.

And, although some people have bought fake Yeezy on StockX, I don’t think it can refuse this website. The shoes I buy have their certification, which is also a small thing that makes me feel happy.

The situation on eBay is much more complicated. I do know that many people sell fake Yeezy, but they will not disclose that they just sell it to people who don’t know how to do it at a more expensive price than expected. This is real!

I started to buy Fake Yeezy

Later I started to buy Fake Yeezy. What is the reason? I really like them very much, but as I browse more and more content in the relevant community, I start to think why not buy a fake pair of Yeezy to try it out? They look real! And so many people are active in this market!

So after about a month of selection and contact, I chose a fake Yeezy seller to buy a pair of Yeezy 350 v2. Surprisingly, this almost made no difference with the genuine. Although there are indeed flaws in some details.

But think about the price of these shoes! I only spent about $140, including shipping. And now I go to buy a pair of genuine products that may require a long wait and more than 300 or even thousands of dollars (if I want to buy the version is rarely restocked). This surprised me!

I started picking more sellers and contacting people who had previous purchase experience. They were very friendly and gave me a lot of very useful suggestions. I’m very grateful.

The biggest difference between genuine and fake Yeezy

We all know that Yeezy shoes are super comfortable to wear because of Boost technology from Adidas. This is very obvious on some bad fake Yeezy. Although there is no difference in appearance, it is not enough! I like the look of Yeezy, and I also like how comfortable they are to wear. So after a long period of comparison, I gave up many sellers who could not do this.

As an ordinary consumer, how can I effectively distinguish the quality of fake Yeezy?

Usually, before I place an order, I will ask the seller to send some photos of the shoes. This allows me to tell if they are operating sellers. If they refuse to provide pictures, even after you place an order, then you need to be careful! This is probably a scam. Especially if they inform you that they cannot provide a tracking number.

Therefore, find a seller who can provide you with a tracking number after shipment and use the service of a reputable logistics company. If you ask, they can usually send you photos of your items before shipping. If something is wrong, or if you change your mind, you can propose a replacement or refund.

The most important thing

We did not buy fake Yeezy to let others see at a glance that this is fake. But basically, as long as you can’t see it by yourself, ordinary passersby can’t see it either. Don’t believe online articles about distinguishing true and false Yeezy. You must know that the factory that makes fake Yeezy can use the Internet, and you will not know whether those articles really use genuine and fake Yeezy for comparison. So, just believe your instincts. If you want to be foolproof, send some pictures to your friends and let them see if they are genuine.

Where to buy fake Yeezy

In fact, I know there are sellers selling fake Yeezy on eBay, but they usually hide. You need to take the initiative to contact to identify.

In addition, I have also purchased in some online stores, they have fast customer service response, the shopping experience is very pleasant. This can be long-term cooperation.

Bottom Line

A replica market is a place that needs trust more than other businesses. This is somewhat ironic, but it is true. Buyers need to trust the seller, believe they will ship your items to you after receiving the payment, and the seller also needs to trust the buyer, believing that the buyer can normally complete their order, rather than submit chargeback or PayPal disputes after receiving the packages. They even tricked the seller into saying that they did not receive the package. All of this will be frustrating and troublesome.
