I couldn't believe my ears when I clicked on the "Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost All Black" video on YouTube and broken Chinese english started coming from my speakers. I was expecting the typical "Hey YouTubers...it's your boy Tblake back with a review". Above is the video of a Chinese lady, probably a factory worker, reviewing an unauthorized pair of Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost "Triple Black" that is set to release on December 19th. She goes into detail showing off the suede, smooth zipper, "YZY" branding, and holes on the toebox. It's scary how far these fake manufacturers have come in making the fakes look so real and difficult to tell.

Editors Note: Personally, I despise fakes. I think it takes away from the fun and passion I have for sneakers. If I can't or couldn't afford something, there were always other sneakers on the market I could buy and wear. I don't think there is ever a reason to purchase a pair of fakes, there are too many brands and silhouettes in the marketplace to be worried about stunting or impressing people, and if you have to fake impress people or impress them at all, you should reconsider why you enjoy sneakers.
