What are unauthorized pairs and how do they differ from fakes and authentics?
Unauthorized pairs can be confusing to many. They are basically sneakers released from outside the U.S in other sneaker retailers in compliance to the shoe brand. They are legit, but at times, can be slightly different from the authentic U.S pairs because of different factories producing them. They can also feature different stamps, additional stickers inside the sole, etc. Again, they are legit, just not released in the U.S. They are not technically fake and they are usually in great or similar quality as the authentic U.S pairs. Fakes are usually obvious they’re fake.
Why should we avoid buying fakes?
Fakes are considered counterfeit items, and it’s actually illegal to buy and sell them. Counterfeit shoes most likely have never been tested for wear and performance, so it can be hurt your feet without the necessary support. Since counterfeit items are cheap, they contain cheap materials and other substances (possibly banned), so it also can also be hazardous to your feet. Fakes can irritate your skin with potential allergic substances, and also they do not look well for the most part, but the biggest reason, is peer criticism. Nobody should wear fakes.

What is hype price and overall steady price?
Hype price indicates the price of the first few weeks of release. The price is usually high after release because of high hype on the sneaker, and many people who want the shoe that couldn’t get it try to buy from others who manage to obtain them. Eventually the hype will die out and the price decreases because the demand for them aren’t as high anymore hence the overall steady price in the long run.
