Dying to get your hands on some sold-out Yeezys? It may be tempting to buy some fake ones to beat the queue. But before you do, watch this video. It will make you think twice before you hit the “purchase” button. Keep reading to learn more about the video, what to do if you find yourself with fakes, and some facts about the counterfeit sneaker industry.
What Inspired the Video and is it About?
Wondering what the inspiration behind our video is? Well, as you may know, fake Yeezys have become increasingly common online. Highsnobeityconducted a report on fake Yeezys on the Chinese e-commerce giant Taobao and found that from May to August 2017, “the tally of fake to real “Zebra” YEEZY 350 V2 sales comes to an approximate ratio of 6:1.”
Some people purchase them on purpose, while others, like the girlfriend in our video, do so unwittingly. The problem is so huge now that there are thousands of guides online about how to spot fake yeezys, from articles to videos. Even Beyoncé was caught wearing fake Yeezy heels!
So what does our video show? The video shows a boyfriend telling his girlfriend how much he wants some limited-edition Yeezys. As a surprise for his birthday, she purchases what she thinks are Yeezys on an online store. When she gifts it to him, the boyfriend immediately realizes they are fakes due to the low price and feel of them.
