WATCH: Yeezy does it - first of a kind counterfeit Chinese store opens

Kanye West and Adidas shoe brand 'Yeezy' has not opened an official shop worldwide, but a fake one has already opened in Wenzhou, China, Friday.

The shop is selling the product for a fifth of the price of official Adidas retailers, and has received a mixed reaction from Wenzhou customers, with some labelling the fake brand as "not good".

Mr Liu, customer said: "I don't think it is good to make a fake brand."

"I think it is normal.Compared to the products in roadside market, the quality is actually better," said another customer Mr Yang.

Mr Tang argued that "if the company makes the products look good and durable, even though they are fake, customers will buy it - because of the low price."

While copyright laws are often different from China to other parts of world, the shop's owner has claimed he registered the Yeezy trademark back in 2013 and is not worried about the legalities of its copyright.
