Kanye West isn’t moving fast enough on the promise to bring his prices down for the average human. A bodega in Brooklyn is trying to beat West to the job by selling fraudulent Yeezyz for $15 a pop.

Reports Complex Sneakers:

Twitter user @Alfred__Julius spotted these unbelievable fakes at a bodega in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy neighborhood. As if the sneaker’s shoddy stitching, questionable pattern, and misshapen midsoles weren’t already enough reason to steer clear, the price tag on these monstrosities says it all. These struggle Boosts are so bad that they’re priced at just $15—apparently even the store owners knew better than to try to pass these off as the real deal.

While counterfeit kicks at bodegas and gas stations are nothing new, this example is about as shameless as it gets.

Real Yeezys cost $200 (if you’re lucky enough to cop a pair), or more than $2,000 if you’re interested in an eBay swindle.
