    very hit or miss but when they hit its a hecking bullseye. for example theres a specific batch for the triple s that people who either own or handled the real thing say there is NO difference at all. things like dunks and jordans have evolved to the point that the quality is said to be higher than what you’d get from retail now. that has more to do with nike quality control getting worse over the years but the rep quality for certain things is just mindblowing. but it all depends on what batch it is so you have to research yourself what the best possible version rep you’re looking for is because theres a lot of different batches of the same things out there. check out reddit or discord and ask around

    Only good for consoooming the latest trends if you are broke, something only broke teenagers should consider doing.
    There are no replicas of actual good quality clothes for adults.

    The replicas these days seem really good. A decade ago they looked like this.

    I would only ever consider getting a replica if it was some out of production thing that I really felt I needed for whatever reason. So I guess Rick dunks qualifies in that respect. But it feels a bit too cheap still in my opinion.

      What’s the difference between ""fake"" and ""real"" clothes if you can’t tell the difference side by side.

    yeah but millenials spend a lot of their disposable income on designer, instead of say, their children they don’t have or their mortgage they don’t have
    one thing i will say that tho, if youre going to rock reps, you better have an iphone. just giving you a heads up right now

    Buying reps is lame as heck
    if you can’t afford the designer you like, either save up for it or express your style in more affordable ways
    Wearing reps is hecking lame as shit and shows you have no sense of style, and think opulence = style

      Opulence? Define that term in the context of fashion. A lot of what’s being repped nowadays isn’t very flashy or filled with logos.
      You’re a stupid if you think people should save up money to buy designer clothes to dress how they want when an alternative exists that’s indistinguishable.

    the second i have a high paying job is the same second i start buying reps non stop. the only reason i don’t have lv or goyard everything is that i don’t have a high enough paying job to justify it. once you do theres no way to question your reps because its never the quality that gets you called out. the only thing that makes a lot of reps look fake is not holding an iphone in your hand and other auxiliary signs of wealth like that

    I bought some fake Yeezys back in 2018, they were quite uncomfortable and gave me a corn on my toes. Might like some triple S reps, Where do you go to get info these days? IIRC all the subreddits for that shit got nuked

    Repfags: tell me please

    I got some geos from a rick boutique in ginza recently but want some reps to see what the difference is.
    Where should I look and how much should I pay for something actually decent to wear that’ll hold up? I don’t normally wear real sneakers anyway much less know anything about the fakes.
    All I can remember is that about a decade ago you /fashion/gs were all maymaying about "dreamboxes".

    I wish we had rep companies making shoes bigger than the original companies. I want size 15 Ricks, dammit.

    Here’s my two cents, which are worthless.
    I get someone that really loves to own a particular piece, and its totally out of their price range or is something that you can only find used ones for a shit ton of money (ie rick dunks) and you get a rep.
    But simply don’t fall for the full deck out rep look, you know, making fits with just grails that cost thousands and thousands of dollars if it was real. In one hand most people will know that you can’t afford that shit, additionally, your money would’ve been better spend on less hyped pieces/sales/second hand market etc.

      The problem with Rick Owens shoes is that you have to commit to the avant garde look otherwise you look like a clown. People who just cop their "le grails" and then wear it with "teenage boy that just discovered fashion" basic shit looks awful
