China’s Wenzhou made headlines recently for being home to the world’s first ‘official’ fake Yeezy store. Thanks to weak intellectual property laws, the retailer managed to rip-off Kanye’s sneaker line by trademarking the name ‘Yeezy’ before the Three Stripes, and has been selling Yeezy BOOST 550s ever since.
Now, curious YouTuber Collin Abroadcast has given us a look inside the store and showcased the knock-off wares. Expect dragons, snakes and scorpions fashioned in Gucci-style embroidery and woefully off-brand colourways.
Unlike most knock-off vendors, this one doesn't barter. And its products are only a fraction below normal Yeezy price! Crazy, right? But it seems the shoes are so popular that no one cares.
