fake sneakers

The reality is that fake sneakers can be scarily accurate, and sadly, most people don’t know they’re being duped. Our resident Head of Sneakers shares her list of the top 12 most counterfeited sneakers and where to shop with real sneakers, expertly authenticated. It started with Nike accusing the reselling platform of selling fake sneakers despite having an authentication program.
