According to TMZ, federal agents at the Texas border seized $4.3 million worth of fake Air Jordans and Yeezys en route to Mexico. U.S Customs and Border Protection reported that the shipment contained 1,800 pairs of counterfeit limited edition Dior X Air Jordan 1, which retails for $2,000 per pair. Federal agents believe the shoes were shipped from China and had all the signs of a scam.
Agents were tipped off by the poor packaging and subsequently, the poor quality of the sneakers. Agents say that several other Nike and Adidas branded sneakers were included in the shipment as well.
