Even in today’s era of smarter shoe-shoppers who have become keen with genuine products, counterfeits continue to be a thorn on the side of the ‘game’. One popular model that these fake-mongers have produced in hives is the faux-360 Max Air hybrids. Fake Air Jordans, Kobes, LeBrons, and Yeezys have been made with the counterfeit Air, so you might be thinking – “Are these counterfeits?”. This shoe you see here isn’t a fake, but a sample ‘hybrid’ that combines the Nike Zoom Huarache TR Mid upper with the 360 Max Air unit, and as seen with the sample Nike tag and Bo Jackson’s ‘BOOM’ detailing, these samples are the real deal. Technically speaking, these wouldn’t be a ‘Zoom’ shoe, but swapping it out for full-length Air Max isn’t a bad move at all; it gives the sneaker an aggressive look like Air Max TR1 360 without losing an ounce of comfort. Your thoughts on this funky-looking hybrid sample? Check out the detailed shots of this Huarache TR Mid Air Max 360 below and if you want ’em in your stash, this 11.5 sample is available now from thecoolshoeshine on eBay.
