The exorbitant prices for real Cheap Pharrell Williams Shoes Human puts them out of reach of most fans. Stepping in to bridge the gap, Reddit forums such as r/repsneakers have unspooled long threads about where to get the best replicas, introducing non-Chinese speakers to Taobao and factories in Putian, Fujian Province, the heart of China’s fake sneaker industry.
Having retailed for $200USD, the shoes, which are made from a synthetic knit, a rubber sole and a patch of suede, now regularly sell for $1,000. The original “Fake Supreme Nike Shoes” style, pictured top, is on Amazon for over $5,000. That’s not how much they cost me though. I bought them on Chinese e-commerce platform Taobao for 228RMB ($35USD).
