    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?

    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.

    The real one is longer than the fake one and the front of the shoes is different the fake is going up a little bit in the front the real one isn't so that's kinda how ik if it's real or not

    joe r gonzales 4 месяца назад

    Basically nothing.  The mid-sole is compression molded EVA (Nike called it phylon once).  Compression molded EVA is just EVA you find on the old school Nike Cortez that has been compressed...thats it; its SUPER cheap to make(EVA/compressed EVA and does not last very long especially when it gets wet).  These Yeezy's (Kanye West) will be the next FUBU's, Karl Kani's, RockaWear and so on.....just "flava's of da monf."  Nike Cortez's, Adidas shelltops, Chuck Taylors are the Levi's of the shoe world.  Maybe Kanye should shift his marketing strategy???  Kanye is ripping ya'll off to supplement his income all the while his wife Kim K. is making way more than he is with no talent which says alot about our culture as they watch KUWTK.  I don't supplement either one's income.....and never will.
