First off, it’s fuck Zara for not paying their factory workers and making them slip notes into the clothing as a cry for help. Whether it’s their fault or not, that shit just ain’t cool!
Second of all, we know it’s hard to compete in the fast-paced world of fashion, especially when people are just copping online these days, but making knock off pieces is really not the wave. That’s the shit that pushes the culture backwards.
We’ve already seen Zara make bootleg Yeezys.

But what about when they made some knock off Vans too?
Now, trying to capitalize off the trend of cooked kicks, specifically the Balenciaga Triple S sneakers (which go for $850), Zara has now released their own trash version.
BRUH WTF ARE THOSE?!
Going for $89 USD, they’re actually something like a Balenciaga x Raf Simons hybrid, perfect for getting roasted when you go to school. At this point, you might as well pull up to Payless and cop some Shaqs!
Realistically, whether it’s Zara, Balenciaga or Raf Simons, they’re all probably made in the same factory. No one makes real shit anymore!
You telling me these 3 kicks doesn't look alike?!?!? People hating on Zara's because it ain't Yeezy or Balenciaga. It's probably made from the same factory! pic.twitter.com/Omi7tBXiJW

I guess it really comes down to if you’re a hypebeast or not. Anyone who pays $850 on sneakers and isn’t named Young Dolph is an asshole in my book because you already know half these kids who are copping are using their parents’ money!
Sure, these cooked dad-shoes are the wave today, but are they really gonna be poppin’ by next summer? We don’t know.
One thing we do know is that whatever is the wave by next summer, Zara will be ready like some vultures to make a knock off of it.
