San Diego Sneaker Consignment Shop Won’t Refund Customer After Selling Fake Yeezys

  • October 25, 2016
  • Written By Timothy Nguyen

Buying fake Yeezys is always a risk when buying on the resale market. To minimize their risk, buyers are willing to pay more money to sneaker consignment shops over marketplaces like Ebay for the knowledge they should have about their merchandise. This was not the case for redditor /u/intensetrash26 who bought a pair of Yeezy Boost 350 Turtle Doves for $1,700.00 from Kolorblind San Diego.
