Today I feel like showing you some less hyped, high fashion items I found here and there on Taobao. I am not the kind of person that likes to spend crazy money on reps, but at times i crave designer items and i know that usually the ratio to score good reps is 1:10 (if a product costs 500 euros in the shop, you'll have to drop at least 50 euros for a reasonable rep.
Let me carry on and start by saying that in order to score such a haul you'll only need Superbuy, and to do so you can register at this affiliate link - REGISTER BY CLICKING HERE
Saint Laurent Court Classic Sl/06 Shoes - 235 yuan - W2C
One of my favorite shoes of all times. Cheap, very detailed and reasonably accurate, these shoes are a must cop for the summer. I recommend snugging a pair before it's too late, the link is up since a while but after i'll post it it won't stay up for long.
Common Projects Hi-Tops - 398 yuan - W2C
This is the most expensive batch, and the quality of the leather finally lives up to the expectations. I reckon there are two famous sellers for these but i went with the most expensive one as the lower priced doesn't have "Common Projects" logos and box. The shoes are a bit hard at first but then when they loosen up they become a heavy duty, sporty pair of leath hi-tops. Must cop as well.
Saint Laurent 2017 blue French terrycloth hoodie - 208 yuan - W2C
For the price and the accuracy, another absolute steal and must cop out there. The seller is certified awesome and has a whole range of designer items for the cheap. The tags that are posted on the pictures are not actually the ones that will be shipped, as you can see in below pictures. Very very satisfied and recommend it to anyone.
Givenchy US Flag sweatshirt - 238 yuan - W2C
Another purchase from UKPark, notorious seller. Same quality as before, good and detailed enough to pass for a real piece. Must cop!
Stone Island Crewneck - 160 yuan - W2C
Widely regarded as one of the best seller on the market for Stone Island products, and in general out of all Taobao, Topstoney continues to deliver an amazing product for the money. Shipping takes a couple of weeks but worth it for the quality.
Saint Laurent Teddy for the cheap - 299 yuan - W2C
Won't comment here as i am not a specialist and there are some many of you battling around on which version is the best and which flaws are evident or not. But for 299 yuan i really can't complain. The linen is soft, the wool warm and feels legit. Even the leather is spot on.
Burberry Crewneck - 105 yuan - W2C
I can't believe they are making money out of this. It's too accurate and comfortable to be a rep, i am not even entirely sure it's not coming from one of Burberry factories itself. Great quality, nice details and very good soft fabric. Will order more and in more colors.
Today I would like to introduce you to an old friend of ours who has been for years the number 1 seller for non-hyped, commercial replica sneakers. Umkao changed tens of shops on taboo and decided to take his business partially offline in order not to have to upload his massive catalogue every time the taboo police would have taken down his shop.
I recommend Umkao for sneakers as Adidas non-boost products, Nike of all kinds (especially Air Max), Puma, New Balance, Fila and other shoes that don’t have a huge amount of details and that probably, for the price, the common nature or the non-hyped status, nobody will really check. Goes without saying i don’t recommend venturing into Gucci Aces or non-existing NMD x Louis Vuitton imaginary products.
Here are some pictures of some Stan Smith and some Nike Mars (this color doesn’t exist as far as i know but i liked it and tell me who the hell legit checks Nike colors). I would like to specify that these shoes cost 135 and 120 yuan, which is a bargain compared to the price in store and i didn’t expect significant differences with retails.
In my opinion the real reason to order from him is not the savings you achieve by buying there rather than in store, but the variety of products that you would otherwise not find in your local shop.
And now the “process” to order from him:
And that’s it, it’s that easy! You now have a pair of 120-130 yuan shoes that nobody will ever stare too close at for a fraction of the money.
Hope you appreciated the guide and good luck with your next hauls!
As promised today i'll post some pictures of the Gucci Aces, some of the most demanded and hyped shoes on the market. And not only your regular Main Street market, but also the Chinese one which has seen a surge in the number of suppliers who tired to venture into recreating replicas of the Gucci Aces.
The ones below are from a well known and reviewed seller that has been already under the radar of Taobao censorship team and has been taken down a few times before. I recommend to make your purchases fast should you decide to buy! I'll try as usual to update my links but so far it has not been easy to keep the pace.
And now the shoes.
Gucci Aces - W2C - 1473 grams with box - 72 hours delivery to Shenzhen warehouse
I have to say the leather feels great, around the heels it's soft (you can even see it from this picture above) and the color is a bright white that makes the colored stripes stand out. I apologies in advance for the lighting but the shoes have been lended to me to take pics and i had to return them on the same day.
And now the retail ones for comparison:
I say these guys really know what they are talking about... I love the letters and the texture of the back of the heel, not to mention the fabric of the side stripe. What do you guys think? Cop or drop?
