Sneaker heads: Just because somebody is rocking a fake pair of Jordan’s does not mean you should clown or hate them because…?? Look, you hate when people hate on you because you go out, and purchase shoes that are the same price as a car note; the funny part about that is some of ya’ll out there paying that much for sneakers and can’t even show them off because your too broke or scared to wear them in fear of getting them dirty; So why pay that much? So when you do get more money, you could actually go out and MAYBE show them off? Replica sneaker heads: I understand, who in their right mind, wants to pay $250-$300 dollars for some Jordan’s?? Hell no! I get it…but when you buy the sneakers, can you at least stay within the color realm. Don’t go buy a pair of 11’s that are green and black or even better, there red and black and right below the Jump man it say’s “Chicago Bulls” with the bull and Jordan’s number….everyone knows those never came out and your just asking for these ridiculous, “all my shoes are over $200 dollars” sneaker heads to open their mouth and flood the internet about how passionately they hate “Fakes” Replica’s and the people who support them.
So what is a fake sneaker? I mean technically, you can hold it in your palm, you can grab them, you can feel them, they have been made with some sort of material, a matter of some sort, it’s visible, it’s there; you know, when someone say’s a fake sneaker, I get to thinking, “Is the sneaker in 3D or something?” Does it appear to be there so when I go to grab it, I fall into the mist of a hologram? The sneaker is not fake it’s real. “Oh LA don’t be an ass, you know what I mean by fake.” Yes unfortunately I do understand. You mean the shoe is not of the original origin as in, “some Chinese people in a factory, that is not a part of Nike or Jordan wait….some Chinese people, who use to work for Nike or Jordan, memorized all the patters, the stitching, color’s, everything…from working all those hours, can make Jordan’s and any Nike in their sleep..wait, what sleep?” So they got sick of that shit, went off to start their own business, got all of the stuff, and created some replica Jordan’s…meanwhile in America, another black kid got robbed and shot for his Jordan’s..you know, the rare pairs that just came out….because Foot locker now raffles off who gets to buy these rare pairs…See before, you use to be able to get up in the morning and maybe be the first few people in line to grab a pair…flirt with the cute cashier and tell her, meet me in the back of foot locker, I’ll give you the money, just ring me up…you know how it goes down…noooo… now it’s, the Jordan’s drop on this day, get your raffle ticket, 3months in advance so we can call to tell you that you didn’t get a chance to spend, $165.00 dollars, so that way when you leave the store, and enter into the mob of people who desperately “need” these shoes, can mean mug the fuck out of you and hey, if possible, you may get the whole Jordan experience, get robbed for your shoes; the shoes you’ve went to work for everyday, worked your ass off for, maybe even sold a few drugs on the side and almost shitted yourself because that week, it seems like you always had cops around you.
OKAY THESE ARE PRETTY BAD
I know, it seems that I have went on a long winded tantrum but listen up sneaker heads, do you really enjoy this?? Becoming enslaved by your own emotions over a shoe? Something you only wear once just to put back in the box because it’s the style to do so? Yet you clown people who buy Rep’s or fakes because there dying to belong or be a part of something? What does that really say about you? Look, we all eat Pizza right? We all at some point start off with pizza hut or dominoes and then someone introduces you to the neighborhood pizza shop and our mind is blown again because the crust, and the cheese and everything is SO much more rich then pizza hut…then one day, your bubble gets blown. That’s not real pizza. Italians don’t use as much tomato sauce on their pizza and for damn sure, the bread is not that fluffy; if anything, it’s extremely thin. What? No way. This whole time you have been eating “fake” pizza. Do you still eat it? Of course you do. The mom and pop pizzeria shops are so delicious and cheap, why would you stop eating it? “Oh, it’s fake Pizza, I don’t fuck with fake Pizza. I only eat authentic pizza.” Fuck outta here. Look, we live in America, everything we eat is a replica of some country…hamburgers, French fries, hot dogs, Taco Bell….we all eat that but get chastised if someone wears, fake Prada, fake Gucci, fake Jordan’s….you see my point here? Imagine you’re sitting on a bench, eating a taco from taco bell one day, and you look up, and someone is whispering in their friends ear..there saying, “Look he’s eating a fake taco” That’s kind of the same thing as saying, “Look at her fake Prada bag or look at his fake Jordan’s.”
My point: Clothes don’t make the man or the woman, man or woman make them; however, you are what you eat: imitation food is not a good way to go about calling someone fake, for wearing fakes, if you are what you eat. Jordan is the only person who will have the so called “real Jordan’s” because the real Jordan’s were made for him; all the other 1,000 pairs sold were made for consumers; therefore sneaker heads, I don’t mean to bust your bubble but, YOUR WEARING REPLICAS. I know, “no I’m not, the material is made much differently and the stitching is done better, there ripping off the designer (and Nike is ripping you off is what I’m thinking) and your supporting criminal activity (Hey! What do you know, we have the same thing in common, supporting criminal activity)” I get it, I own a few pair of “real” Jordan’s. I’m 29, which means I remember when Jordan played basketball, my first pair of Jordan’s were the 7’s, back when Jordan’s were still $100.00 and sold in JC Penny (Yeah you read it right, JC Penny had Jordan’s)
I remember getting the hologram Jordan’s blue and grey which I still have, I also have the black and red; luckily my foot didn’t grow anymore pass the age 14 so I’m still able to fit most of my Jordan’s. I own the 14’s and I bought my first pair of 12’s when I was 22 or 21; either way, good lord those things were expensive…this kid saw Jordan’s when they were $100.00, I spent $140.00 with tax when I purchased my 12’s..black and red. I’m just glad it was tax season when those came out…but as I got older, I came across a guy who sold Jordan’s out his trunk for $80. I knew they were replicas but son of a bitch, these joints look like the real thing, fit my foot well and were WAY cheaper than the mall.
I missed my point about 600 words ago, so let me try to wrap this up…please bare with me, I know this has been a long winded read but this needed to be said….Those Jordan’s I bought when I was 22 or 21, I still own to this day at the age of 29, I had to super glue the toe. I don’t play ball anymore and if I do, it’s not in Jordan’s shoes. I may have gone to a few parties in those shoes but none the less, I was careful, I didn’t dance in my Jordan’s, I was clean. Yet I’m using super…using Gorilla glue on a pair of $140.00 dollar, 7 to 8 year old shoes, that rarely saw much movement…but my Replica Jordan’s are still intact???
So why would I pay, (Excuse my language) but, “fuck me in the ass with a Sperm Whale cock” prices for a shoe that when you look at it, was poorly designed…when I can pay $45-$50 dollars for the same shoe; so that if it does fall apart on me, oh well…no, I’m super gluing a “real” Jordan. I know sneaker collecting is a hobby. I collect but I have really curved my sneaker taste…instead when I get my taxes, I would rather invest some money in something else; I know, I can flip my $140.00 plus sneakers online for $250.00 but that’s ridiculous; I brought those damn shoes and I own them. Lol.
I’m LA GREEN. The mission of my business is about bettering others; so let’s start by admitting that Replica Jordan’s, Gucci bags, Prada, Nike…whoever, there not hurting anybody, if anything, it’s making someone happy that they can flaunt it and still eat for the next week; some day, they’ll be able to afford it, but at that moment, they can’t. So what if it’s a fake, so is that slice of pizza, so is my 10.1 Samsung galaxy note tablet (apple was first everyone else copied) the Chrysler car is an imitation of the Bentley Phantom, all touch screen phones favor the IPhone…we all have a fake version of something. So sneaker heads, with all that said, can you still be upset if someone rocks a pair of fake Jordan’s? Of course you can. Just remember this, replicas are getting better every day. Rep’s are getting so good and there still selling them at a cheap price. These little companies are putting the money back into their business, buying better material, which in China, probably doesn’t cost much, and making the sneakers, to better benefit there consumer..Before, there were 10 flaws, now there’s only two, and soon there will be none thanks to all the sneaker heads giving away the tips of what makes a “real” Jordan online; and they will continue to sell Jordan’s for $50 bucks. One day, someone is going to buy a pair of fakes that have been perfected and you won’t know the difference.....Which one is real and which one is fake?
