CBP chalks up another Nike sneaker seizure

US customs at the Port of Vicksburg/Jackson have seized more than $4,000 worth of counterfeit Nike Air Max, Nike Air Jordan’s, and Balenciaga shoes from Hong Kong.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers discovered the shoes at an express consignment facility in four separate packages marked as “casual shoes,” destined for an address in Mississippi. The seizure came a few days after a similar but much larger seizure in Los Angeles worth more than $2.2m.

A legitimate pair of Balenciago shoes can potentially sell for anywhere between $700 and $1,000 online, while Nike Air Jordans can cost as little as $100, and up to $1,000, noted CBP.

“Consumers shopping online, especially during this upcoming holiday season, are eventually likely to encounter fraudulent sellers,” it added.
