Customs officers at Dulles International Airport have seized nearly $55,000 worth of counterfeit Air Jordan shoes.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Monday that 400 pairs of the counterfeit Nikes arrived at the airport last month, destined for an address in Alexandria.

Officers suspected the shoes, which arrived from China mimicking assorted models of the shoe, were fakes.

The shoes, which are named for retired basketball legend Michael Jordan, retail for well over $100 and have been popular since the '80s.


What, is that 10 Air Jordans?

If they’re counterfeit, wouldn’t they be cheaper($55K???)? I’ve never paid $137.5 for sneakers.

I’m assuming there are 400 homeless individuals that could benefit from a pairs of shoes without holes in them.
