    Bro okay so if only half got it right and mostly by chance than who cares? Buy the fakes and invest the other $2680 in a high yield mutual fund and earn 10-12% a year and still be fresh!

    For everyone commenting on Adidas being greedy.. yeezys are $200 and the v2 are $220... Kanye wanted everyone to have some so that's the price... Resale game on the other hand is fucking crazy.. not enough yeezys come out so people who had a lot of money invested in buying a lot of pairs only to then get more than five times what the paid for.. hell even 10 times more... So blame the resellers not Kanye or Adidas...

    i've once ask a adidas staff about what's the difference between fake and real yeezy, he said that the real yeezy cannot get germs on it, like wtf? and he said the fake on, the glue is not clean looking, i mean why does a 700$~ shoe use glue to stick them, isn't it imbarrassing?
    and why are the yeezy material is made of grandma's knitting fabric?

  • Gates Andrews
    Gates Andrews 4 months ago

    Are the fake ones really "fake?" Are they not just from the same factory but the "real" pair was the one which was chosen by the retailer? Or am I wrong about that? Obviously there's two sides to the argument.
