Sneakerheads have a lot more stress to deal with these days. Between the ever-advancing counterfeits and an increasingly cutthroat re-selling business, getting your hands on a pair of dope kicks just isn’t as easy as it used to be. However, there’s good news on the horizon. According to overseas news reports, the Chinese government recently nabbed $87 million (in USD) worth of sneakers from a factor in Anhul, China.

The tip about the factory came from a Nike employee who noticed a surge in fake Nikes, Converse and Vans being sold in the Middle East. After a lengthy investigation that originally began in December of 2015, the local police department finally moved in for the 🤬 .

Sneakerheads from Europe and North America can breathe a sigh of relief; the fake kicks were reportedly only distributed in the Middle East and Africa.

    They should give the shoes away to the poor for free.... Drop em of in third world countries or something. I hope they dont throw them away.

    Depends on what the company demands... In most cases they have them destroyed. Sometimes they give them to the poor.
