When you buy sneakers online, you are always a couple of days waiting for them to arrive because nothing tastier than opening a box of newly purchased sneakers. The smell of the materials fresh from the factory, the colors, the design, the brand logo… It’s an almost spiritual experience, isn’t it? Oh, that drives you to a mental state most of the shopping can’t drive you to.
I don’t know anyone that doesn’t enjoy buying sneakers, especially from the most important brands like Nike, Adidas, Reebok, or New Balance. We all have some friend who buys the latest sneakers that came out on the market, or those that are trending on social media. TikTok user @orderedvsgotten was extremely excited when he saw some amazing transparent Nike sneakers in an online store. It’s no joke: they seriously looked stunning, and he shared the photos that entranced him. It seemed that he was going to be the sensation of the neighborhood and the envy of all his friends, but what he received in the mail left him totally disappointed, frustrated and with the feeling of having been scammed.
TikTok User Was So Disappointed When He Received the Transparent Nike Sneakers
The illusion was kept alive until the moment the doorbell rang at his house, and it was the delivery guy. He was bringing the box of his new sneakers, and he was super happy when he sat down at the table to repeat that experience of opening the box previously narrated.
Her happy face was immediately erased when he discovered what was inside the package. Man! How are they going to do that to an excited sneakerhead? The sneakers did not look, at all, like what was advertised on the web.
But the Nike sneakers were not at all what he had seen in the photos when he added them to the shopping cart. The ones in the advertising photo were totally transparent with a Nike logo in a beautiful golden color, and even the sole was totally translucent. But what he got was a pair of visibly cheap sneakers, of a dubious and low-cost quality.
Don’t Buy Sneakers That Look to Good to Be True
The golden color simply wasn’t there. Instead, an awkwardly cut Nike logo in a sad, faded gray. The laces are also one of the cheapest that can be found on Ebay and the seams are not even pairs much less well-made.
TikTok users joked and mocked the poor shopper. “never order something that looks too good to be true,” a dude commented. “It looked too good to be true to begin with,” another man agreed.“
“Cinderella vibes, just in a tacky form,” said another TikToker. And some other girl said: “Y’all just like impossible things!”
