1:21 wtf this shoe is like 10 numbers bigger than his foot :/

Author Lucas Brown ( ago)
everyone needs to understand when u buy expensive ass shoes, most of the time you can get a decent amount of money back. its like buying a car, everyone forgets you will be able to sell it in the future. obviously this still doesnt rationalize buying resold shoes because the entire concept is ridiculous but my point stands.

Author Lucas Brown ( ago)

Author 10,000b subs no videos challenge official!!! ( ago)
Who the fuck actually buys shoes that are 2700$ I buy shit around the 60's

Author Antonio Newton ( ago)
When Kanye designed the shoe it was supposed to sell for a actual consumer price so the production of the yeezys probably weren't that much money, and if the "fakes" are literally the exact same (dimensions, materials. etc) then could that justify perhaps buying the fake pairs cause to me its the same Chinese boy making my shoes so does it really matter.

Author OXO ( ago)

People with straight hair trying to get shaped up need to stop, just stop.

Author Tristan Jurek ( ago)
This video aint gonna stop people from buying real yeezys, if they have the money they're gonna buy the real thing. I got fake yeezys but I'm a broke bitch if i had money id buy the real shit all day long

Author Chico ( ago)
Fuck everyone working there, that Asian chick holding the mic for the vid is wife material 👏🏼👏🏼

Author highview seeker ( ago)
i got the cheapest fakes i found and they comfortable and nice too, it doesn't have boost and they slippery but the comfort is there and easy to jump and sprint. the thing is in the shape of the shoe and upper with is just long pannels, so getting identicals or copys that at least have good boost or the originals if u can are definetely a deal. yes adidas bullshits us with ads and more ads but theyre clothing very good too and they have a name for a good reason

Author Victor Canas ( ago)
You know how you can tell easily. Just ask yourself if the person can afford them. 😂

Author Pupanugi ( ago)
2:39 this guy is mentally unstable. The money doesn't go to Kanye but it goes to the reseller who bought it for $250.

Author lilsuperman77 ( ago)
if i shouldnt believe the hype then i shouldnt believe in complex

Author The 5th King ( ago)
Imma buy me some fakes then, cause I never believed in the hype of Yeezys, I just thought they looked really good, except I only really like the Pirate Blacks and V2 Breds but still, Imma definitely get some fake Yeezys if you aren't able to feel a difference in quality or anything.

Author Jon Jackson ( ago)
Yo where you get those fake ones for $20 at?!?! Hook a brotha up!!! 😂😂😂

Author Hudson Hardin ( ago)
any sneakerhead could tell immediately at 0:01

Author Wout Vandenberghe ( ago)
they are obviously fakes because the stitching in the middle of the fake shoe is too dark to be the legit one

Author ib10jhs45 ( ago)
I can appreciate the fact that ya'll support the shit out of Kanye's moon shoes...But lets keep it real here...those shoes should only be worn on the moon cuz they funky looking & no one on the moon would care about your style, but do you like ugly, hyped gear...those kicks & Kanye belong in the trash bin.

Author iZilly ( ago)
And there is my reason for paying for a good replica.... hardly anyone can tell! the difference on real and good replicas anymore!

Author Meme Master ( ago)

Author Alpaca Llama ( ago)
You confirmed why I rather not be a sneaker head...

Author Linus Poon ( ago)
before watching the video i can already tell not to believe. The pattern on the fake pair isn't going across the shoe diagonally, but I would still buy them if i had no choice, nonetheless.

Author An african kid ( ago)
Those shoes wouldnt resell for fucking $2700 if adidas and kanye would bring out more of them and restock them. And of course if shitty fuckhead resellers didnt buy 10 of them at the same time to make some money. I think yeezys are interesting shoes because of the boost technology and the colorways but I wont ever buy them because I have to pay 5x the retail price or wait 2 days infront of stores that are miles upon miles away from my fucking home. Fuck you kanye and fuck you adidas.

Author Annu Naki ( ago)
Where can I get those fake pairs??

Author HammerBaseball34 ( ago)
