    I figured it might be nice to start a thread collecting info on any of the NIKE MAG Replicas that are sure to pop up.

    Those are cleary copies of Mark Poon's Mags.
    When copies of the ACTUAL Nike Mags pop up, then I will get excited.

    2nd ones down look like they could be taken pretty far in making them look realistic. might be a good base shoe for the budget conscious.

    Ditto. Just out of interest, I contacted the guy who makes the ones in link 1. He CLAIMED that they were direct copies of the real ones from China (Pou Chen factory 8) but CLEARLY they are just copies of Mark Poons. I said that if he modified the toe section, bulky laces and had the correct colours he would be onto a winner! The bottom ones are terrible

    Anyone heard of any better replicas apart from S02s then? I'm fairly sure the company who did the above will do a better version soon.

    Found a guy on eBay selling them for £1000 but they got removed VERY quickly. Looks like the designs have leaked and there's a company in China now making replicas. He hasn't listed since so I'm assuming eBay/Nike are monitoring and had a swift word with him ;-)

    Hopefully they will work their way into the trainer (sneaker for you Americans) forums soon.

    Anyone heard of any better replicas yet? I honestly can't believe that China haven't come up with any yet. The pair above are quite good except for the awful toes and solid coloured soles so we can't even do light conversions on them. :facepalm

    The ones above are actually from China I ordered from them and 2 weeks later I got an email "we have no longer your order you want, please help pick something else"....Well obviously I didn't want anything else and they wouldn't refund my money so I had to put a dispute in with my CC company...Word of advice don't order from that place lol Get Mark Poons Reps. as we all know he's a good seller.

    Markpoons are great, IF you're a size 9 or 10. Can't believe there's no way for him or his shoemaker to make bigger sizes. There are so many size 12 people wanting to wear them that are left out in the cold.

    I've been tossing around the idea of getting a pair of those Chinese knockoffs, for $60 it's pretty cheap, but the more I look at them and try to convince myself that with a paint job and light conversion they'd look pretty good, as soon as I look at a picture of the real ones, it just crushes the idea. There really is no comparison. The real ones look so sleek and clean, and those Chinese ones look like cheap shoes (boots, really) that you'd find at Payless or Walmart. And like what was said above, the soles are not translucent, so in order to add the EL, you'd have to re-mold and cast clear versions of that piece. That's a lot of trouble for a shoe that, in the end, still isn't going to look that good. The only advantage is that you can get them in any size and actually be able to wear them.

    I too am really surprised that there aren't better knockoffs yet. I keep hearing about the replicas of the McFly Hyperdunks and that they're really well done. What's the hold up with the MAGs??? They're such a big deal in the shoe world, with all the other shoe reps out there, you'd think they'd be on top of that *****. Aside from the electronics, there's nothing that is crazy difficult about making them for the rep factories. Even if they sold them without lights, I'd be fine with that if we could add them ourselves, as long as the shoe looked pretty accurate.

    /\ Exactly! I would love an accurate knock off, even without lights.

    I would buy several pairs and do the lights myself.

    Brad, I am going to post the YouTube user ID for the guy who was responsible for the above replicas at dhgate.com. He works for the factory who is responsible for them and his English isn't 100%. I suggested a toe correction, correct colours and clear sole/LED sections so that we could modify them ourselves and that there would be HUUGE demand for them. They are very clearly well made with leather etc but these litle details are what is ruining them and making them far less attractive to us fans. Here's a recent video on YouTube of someone (with slightly less IQ than the average guy..) reviewing them:

    Sbshoe.com FAKE NIKE MAG REVIEW. - YouTube


    ...and here's the user who designed the above replicas and actually works for his 'big boss' in a Chinese factory :)


    mavheji's Channel - YouTube


    I suggest you all pm him and request the above improvements and he'll sell literally thousands! I would love to convert a pair myself and I would buy loads of them.

    Let me know the responses you get back :thumbsup He said to me that if they make the improvements I suggested that his 'big boss' (lol, makes me laugh every time) will get sued but if we push enough maybe he'll at least meet us in the middle and do clear soles. We could do the toe correction and green splatter paint ourselves.

    Ditto to all that. Luckily I'm size 9 so marks fit me perfectly but I'd like some made like this in proper leather, it would be far sturdier for the electronics. Spam that guy messages and make him realise he'd sell lorry loads of them if he improves them.

    ive asked for more colour combinations on the knockoffs. The black/white one is the best, but its an obvious fake.

    Keep spamming this guy everyone, he is actually an employee of the company who made the above replicas. If he gets more people messaging him he'll probably push it a bit more. :thumbsup

    Even if they keep EVERYTHING the same but simply do clear soles, I would be more than happy. It would be easy enough to take them apart and get the toe section more trainer like. Try him again, someone different suggesting JUST the clear soles :thumbsup

    They have all the access to materials, and such, yet they create a replica of a fan replica.

    Do you really think, the design of a shoe is automatically in the public domain, just because you removed the logos? Then you obviously don't know much about copyright laws and international treaties. :lol

    Has anyone here actually order from SBShoe, or do I need to be the guinea pig here?

    I feel like they'd make a great base to modify and make more accurate, so I'd love to get my hands on a set.

    you cannot get sued if your design is sufficiently different or not completely identical. a replica without led lights, etc is not a carbon copy therefore it cannot be seen as identical.

    If you think so, then I will not rob your illusions. But don't wonder if the public prosecutor is knocking at your door after you made a "not so accurate" replica for sale. ;) I know, we all here make this, but I don't have any illusions, that it's allowed what we do.

    So I guess I'll have to be the board Guinea Pig with SBShoe.

    I'll probably place my order sometime this weekend. I'll let you guys know how it goes. For $65 it's hard to say no.

    I'll probably end up modifying them, so hopefully the soles are fairly easy to extricate from the uppers.

    EDIT: I bit the bullet and put in my order. The payment gateway was a little shady, but everything seems to have gone through alright.

    I'll report back with any updates.

    the chinese knockoffs, since none of them have the grey upper, are you guys gong to rip out the white/silver one and add your own?

    Vainess, do you have pictures of yours?

    Those Chinese that do the bootlegs actually do the fans a favour, since Nike is such a greedy beast.

    Little sheep?! You'de get you arsed penetrated by Nike if you made an almost identical replica.

    However, in China anything goes and as long as it had no Nike logos they would be fine. Infact, i'm MORE surprised Nike haven't done anything with those bad replicas as they actually have the swooshes and Nike branding which counts for more than a similar design.

    Forget spamming him, why don't we ask him for what we REALLY want: the soles...done accurately.

    The soles are the hardest part of the shoe to replicate. If we had those, we could make our own endless supply of accurate mags, and he'd be fully in the clear. (legally speaking)

    I don't have any of the guy's contact info, so who wants to reach out and see if he'd be willing to go down that route?

    What I'm suggesting is that he produce ONLY the soles, not the uppers, without any branding. And we, as the fine, industrious craftsmen we are, could create the rest.

    And there's no need to get so worked up...it's only a hobby.

    no, he understands English perfectly well, but for some reason says his boss's company will get sued.

    which is a bit rich given that the nike logo and lettering is plastered all over it!


    if he listened to you guys doing the accurate replicas, it could be solved.

    I'm watching all of my bank accounts like a hawk, and am ready to pull the plug on all of them should they try to pull something.

    I'm also using an account I was planning on closing soon anyway, so I've done everything possible to mitigate my risk...just in case.

    Just to let you know I was VERY skeptical about the SBShoe website but I got my Nike Mags and they look and feel great. Not 100% accurate, but for the price its a hell of a deal.
