Give me one reason to spend over a thousand dollars on made in china shoes when i can pay a fifth that for the same quality and aesthetic
i love the yeezy shoes but would never pay the resell values (though i've sold some at resell values), if you want a yeezy shoe buy it for retail when it comes out (way easier than people say) or if it's already been released buy a rep of it
there was a kid in front of me in public who was like 16 wearing 750 boosts and he looked bretty retarded. Was really funny when he walked off in the distance and the only things you could see of him much was his clown shoes
The argument most people who pay full price will say:
"The quality isn't the same! You can get some Chinese-made trash with lower quality materials and craftsmanship, but it will fall apart. On top of that, everyone will know you're a cheap replica-buying loser."
- The quality can be surprisingly close as long as you don't pay near-nothing for the replica. Replica manufacturers know word spreads and what their customer base is, so they don't exactly make things out of cardboard.
- The worksmanship varies, but a replica isn't going to be made poorly automatically,
- The price/longevity ratio still usually favors buying a replica, especially for something on the bleeding edge of fashion, and
- The people who would know it's a replica and care don't matter.
the grey 750s are david's 6th batch reps which i should mention are fucking terrible compared to retails
He's just being an edgy sperglord. The only issues with David's 6th are the heel curve, the stripes under the strap, and strap length.
The 7th batch corrected everything though and look nice like the OP's picture.
i'm not just saying they're bad for the sake of it like the other dude said, the materials are really thin and floppy compared to my retail 750s, they're worth buying but they don't compare to retail at all
sneakerahead.me 6th batch (comfier)
zztop on ali (like 2% more accurate)
sneakerahead.me 7th batch, just bear in mind the materials are very floppy and weak though aesthetically they look the same as retails provided you ask for QC pics and post them on /r/repsneakers before 'greenlighting' the specific pair you're being sent
any on aliexpress
