Air Jordan Fusions?

I'm am commonly asked why I don't do video's on Fusions, as in how to tell if a Fusion is real or fake. Before I answer that question let me say this, I am not against or attempting to discredit anyone's fashion sense or the shoe line itself.

I help people spot out fake signature line Air Jordan's (1-23) because those shoes increase in value pretty much the day after they release. For example let's take the Air Jordan XII which just released over this past weekend for $149.99, here we are less than a week away from the initial release and they are being sold at $189.99+ by reputable resellers. Being that the signature line increases in value and are so high in demand it is easy for counterfeiters to sell knock offs for the same high prices which is unfair particularly to those that want the real thing. This is why I focus on the signature line, because the demand is so high and the shoes sell out forcing people to deal with resellers. The issue are the Fakes look more and more like the real thing, inferior quality of course but to the eye the buyer is unaware which is why I try to help out.

Now as for the Fusions lets take the Fusion III for example. They released at $149.99 they did NOT sell out and are now on sale for $79.99. Fusion V released at $149.99 and did NOT sell out and are now on sale for $119.99. My point here is there is no reason at all to deal with resellers for Jordan Brand shoes like Fusions when you can still go to eastbay.com or your local Footlocker, Champs, Finishline etc and find them without worrying if they are authentic.

Again I have no problem with the Fusions or the people that wear them, I personally don't have any and if I ever do get a pair I'll be sure to post a "pick up" video.
