Remember those $30 Air Jordan knockoffs from Kmart last month? While many readers weren't too keen on the replica Js, we took things a step further and decided to see if we could convince actual sneakerheads to cop a pair. We set up shop at New York sneaker boutique Extra Butter's Lower East Side store and put a pair of the Catapult brand Jordan III replicas on display. For every pair that store manager Alex is able to sell (at a markup of $100 no less) Complex will in turn give him $100, and the responses that ensue range from downright flagrant to absolutely hilarious. Just how many naysayers was he able to convert? Watch the video above to find out.
