Thrifts still haven’t reopened around here :(
thats funny, a client sent in a RRL poorboy hat the other day and I was reminded of how I still cant believe that sale. I forgot what it looked like, it very well may be similar. Im pretty sure it was a black/grey tartan tweed one. I dont think I have the pic anymore but ill sniff around.

cool, now that I’m thinking about it some more pretty sure yours was Harris tweed, so it’s unlikely the same.

I found a couple pairs of Yeezy's today, can anyone weigh in on if they're legit? I did some reasearch...most things look ok, but the white tip on the shoelaces is one issue, and perhaps the toe box stitching width; but I'm not sure...

They weren't cheap ($30USD/pr), but can be returned.... but they also fit, so they woudn't be a bad casual shoe if they don't check out....20200603_143924.jpg20200603_143912.jpg20200603_143902.jpg20200603_143856.jpg20200603_143850.jpg20200603_143825.jpg20200603_143817.jpg20200603_143754.jpg20200603_143749.jpg20200603_143740.jpg20200603_143728.jpg

You're in the wrong thread if you really believe that, people donate ANYTHING. Look at some of the crap that gets pulled in here.

I’ve been on this thread for 12 years dating back the the original one and I’ve seen. However rich people donating high end clothes is a lot different than a sneakerhead shoe ending up in the wild.

I've seen some pretty crazy sneakers in the wild and believe it can happen. I've a pair of nwot margiela gats and Dries derbies that I pulled from a box. The girl in front of me walked away with some nike/jun takahashi daybreaks that came out only 3 weeks before. I can only imagine what other stuff was there that got scooped before I got there.

I always imagine either someone's gf got mad at him or someone died and his stuff got donated. Yeezy's aren't all that rare anymore and I can imagine maybe someone just being done with supporting Kanye?

Not an expert but comparing them to mine in a different colorway. The stitching on the toe box pattern and sizing seems to be the same.

The size tag inside seems to be the same.

Sole and the pull tab at the back looks the same.

That's why I took a chance; I've pulled some great stuff even in my out-of-the-way location. I can return them if they end up not being legit in the end; so it would have been foolish to leave something that wasn't an obvious pass.
Do the most basic check ,the serial numbers ..each shoe has its own.its not fool proof but the quickest way to weed out a fake.if the numbers are same them fake.of not there is still a chance ...
