For several years, multinational corporations in the footwear industry have outsourced production to factories in China. Specific industries are often concentrated in the same city or region.
Today, a retailer can find online listings of replicas to purchase if he wants to sell a famous shoe. He may also put an order from another country.
But have you ever wondered why the shoe business is booming in cities like Nairobi and Mombasa? Some people are even opening ready-made shoe shops and wholesales for less than ten thousand Kenya shillings ($100) as long as they have connections with fake dealers. On social media sites like Instagram and Facebook, these people usually get more customers. Someone had to buy after they placed an advertisement with a price tag.
To prevent later regrets, you can only trust checked online wholesalers such as Jumia and Kilimall, among others.
Though some fake sneakers are difficult to spot due to how fake companies are improving and making corrections, here are some photos from Check app org that show the difference between fake and authentic Nike sneakers.
