So, we've got to give kudos to the LAX customs crew for taking a step in the right direction and halting 20,000 pairs of counterfeit red soles from China. The wannabe-Louboutin loot could've sold for $18 million dollars, likely at swap meets or online shops. We'll be honest and admit that we're a bit curious as to which iconic kicks were duplicated. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Spokesman Jaime Ruiz, the shoes were pretty spot-on (and will likely be destroyed).
Consider this a warning, L.A. — those fierce new stilettos you scored for a steal may actually be a set of phonies. And trust us, you don't want to mess with the man himself! (Huff Post LA)
