  Q: Are counterfeits a problem in relation to classic sneakers?

 
  A: updated (08/02/2012)

Yes they are. In the past most Adidas, Reebok and Puma sneakers were made in Europe; and likewise, most Nike sneakers were made in North America. Present day, these trainers are made in the Far East, most commonly in China, Vietnam, and Indonesia. This has probably given counterfeiters in these country an excellent insight into how these sneakers are manufactured; and therefore, it comes as no surprise that the majority of counterfeits originate from this part of the World. With classic limited release sneakers fetching upwards of $100, there is an immense amount of money which can be made from selling counterfeits of these sneakers over the Web. Therefore, it is advisable to learn as much as you can about the trainer you are purchasing - to spot if it is a fake - and also to double check the reputation of the seller you are buying from.
