Why Guys Buy Fakes – Reason #1: Ego
Guys think they’re too smart to get tricked, too much of a true sneakerhead to fall for even a well-detailed fake. Same reason they fall for other “fakes”, right girls? But back to sneakers and egos. In a Sneaker Freaker interview, Richard Stanwix, Head of Brand Security for Nike, estimated that up to 98% of shoes at any given time are fakes. So it is sheer ego to think that YOU know better, (and everyone else is a dork.) At one point or another, guys, you’re gonna get faked, especially if you shop online. And you know when we’re going to find out? When you’re telling some female sneaker fiend that she probably got her very legit kicks from her boyfriend, and she points out to everybody that your “Invisible Jordans” are beyond fake!
