    It all comes back to what designs are popular these days and I can’t fully blame people buying reps for like collage set of SBs cause 14 year old using there dads credit card is driven price up to astronomical prices

  • I feel like this whole fake bootleg shoes really appropriated the whole mid 2000’s urban look without the actual clothes or culture of it. Like these shoes reminded me of the shoes you would see at a store at the ghetto mall that would have the evisus you weren’t sure if they were real or fake and the coogi shirts that would be playing sittin sideways by Paul wall on the speakers. But instead of having that vibe people that own shoes try to act edgy cause they have guns or hockey mask or knifes on their shoes it’s cringy

    while i understand why someone would buy fake items, especially for sneakers, i do not think that somebody should. ethics aside, i think its a total consumerist mindset to buy that exact item that x celeb wore

  • this s*** was bound to happen the man made 25k pairs and sold them at 300 a shoe, that's gonna get some attention

    about time

    has anyone seen warren dunks in person? curious how they are vs the real thing

    The first jasons were decent, quality was good my boy had em but flipped em

  • I'm glad Jeff Staple got fired too that man has been living off of the success of the OG Pigeon Dunk for more than a decade and anything he has done outside of that has been pure dog s***.

    Oh and this is karma from Warren Lotas for lying about where his shoes were made. We all knew they were fakes, no need to lie my guy.

  • Did any of y’all saw the leaked staple pigeons that would of came out if Jeff staples didn’t f*** up

    i don't disagree but i guess the counterpoint from a lot of these guys is that they supposedly like the look independent of the hype and that the real consumerist mindset is only accepting a small subsection of similar looking shoes as legit or cool or whatever

    i always say that EVERYBODY is affected by hype and wider discourse to some extent though. these dudes will literally never admit it but they would definitely not be copping fake dunks if dunks weren't having a huge cultural moment right now.

    i think with warren lotas, he'd prob have gotten away with it if he didn't keep very publicly going to the same well like 3-4 times in the space of a year. and the jeff staple stuff only painted a bigger target on his head.

  • Some of them don't even look like shoes, they legit look like cakes that were made to look like a shoe.
    The pigeons are a flat out copy lol

  • at least the first jason dunks he did seemed kinda consistent thematically/colour-wise. like red and black gave a kinda spooky, halloween vibe to complement the jason mask.

    just doing stussy and pigeon dunks with the mask tho
