US customs officers intercept $1.7M in fake Nike sneakers from China

US : More than 9,000 pairs of fake Nike sneakers were found by U.S. customs officers during a standard inspection of incoming mail from China last Thursday, according to Customs and Border Protection.

Officers at CBP’s Port of New York/Newark found 9,024 pairs of the designer athletic shoes while looking through packages that had just come into the United States from Dongguan City, China.

The catch saved the retail corporation a potential loss of $1,695,600, the suggested retail value of the shoes that the counterfeit ones were modeled to look like.

“This significant seizure of counterfeit Nike sneakers illustrates Customs and Border Protection’s continued commitment to protecting the American consumer against the proliferation of substandard and potentially unsafe counterfeit consumer goods,” Troy Miller, director of CBP’s New York Field Office, said in a statement.
