New VICE Documentary Explores the Fake Sneaker Capital of China

VICE News Tonight on HBO recently aired a documentary on “the city of fakes” – aka┬áPutian, China.

Putian is known for the massive fake sneaker black market that comes to life every night. Vendors pack the streets selling high quality replicas of popular shoes. VICE had the chance to speak with a successful vendor, Chan, about his experience in the underground world. From the looks of it, it seems like business is booming.
