Is nike fancy in your area, is it seen as a good brand?

Where I'm at right now which is in some village in Africa people be wearing fake everything from Nike, addidas, Gucci you name it. I don't think they'll notice if you was wearing the real deal.

@popmol It's not that bad 😂. I kept complaining to her for days asking her why she didn't just buy something plain than this fake till she was annoyed.

Dats fancy smancy. But I have nice sneakers, so shouldn’t talk. But that’s because I wear them all the time and they are attuned to my feet. I exercise a lot and am very active so it helps to have good shoes so I don’t hurt my feet

@popmol Lol, you must have fancy smancy shoes in Belgium

I have a pair of brooks that I invested in after an injury, and a pair of women’s brand sneakers supposedly made for women’s feet

@YoungPoet345 to us nike is cheap sneakers and cheap clothes for those lowest in society, because its cheap no quality stuff and used mostly by those annoying teens no one likes xD

I don’t consider it a good brand when the materials are shit and cheap and they’re overpriced

I don’t paying paying for a quality overpriced / expensive good

Vs is the same. Cheap flimsy materials and overpriced

@DeluxedEdition they are like 5 euros in materials 2 in shipping they give the workers 1 euro and sell it for a 100 its insane!

@popmol 🤦‍♀️
I don't know but it doesn't seem like it to me. I think it's more seen as overpriced than really good at this point and fakes didn't help their name too. I guess there are already many other less known brands that are equally good or better.

@AthrillatheHunt yeah but it doesn't require that much money!
