I’m guessing the economy is pretty tough… Do you think there’s a chance a lot of these shoes were counterfeits?
Sure! If you see a 14 year old kid in Jordan 6 black/infrared and next to him a 55 year old lady in the same Jordan 6 in the olympic colorway, it’s clear that these two people from Trinidad didn’t save some money and then freak out on a three night eBay session. There were some little streetmarket sellers that I noticed with some fake Air Force and Jordans but also at the same time you had all the original Nike models right next to them in a regular sneaker store.
So I guess it’s not such a big difference than in Hong Kong or Turkey. The cool thing about it was that everybody spread the same love for their sneakers and treated them nice and properly to just look as funky fly fresh as can be, not giving a damn if they were real or what they cost! I can just advise anybody to try to get to these two little islands of Trinidad & Tobago because there is so much more than you would imagine. This whole trip was the best thing I ever did and I had the time of my life! Thanx for the interview!
