U.S. CUSTOMS SEIZED A LARGE SHIPMENT CONTAINING DIOR JORDAN 1 SNEAKERS
The shipment contained 1,800 pairs of Dior Jordan 1s
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Dallas/Fort Worth has just intercepted a shipment containing over $4 million USD worth of fake sneakers. The shipment which was headed to Mexico, contained 1,800 pairs of the coveted Dior Jordan 1 sneakers alongside other counterfeit sneakers.
The CBP has stated “due to the poor quality of workmanship, incorrect packaging, and previous experience with similar products” it was quite evident that they were dealing with a shipment of fake items.
According to the officials, the shipment, which contained Dior Jordan 1 sneakers, was declared as “Ball Golf” goods in 60 large boxes, came from Hong Kong.

Timothy Lemaux, the CBP Port Director, emphasized the importance of preventing illegal goods from potentially damaging the US economy: “Counterfeiters trafficking in phony merchandise are not concerned about the American consumer or the damage their fake goods can do to our economy. CBP will continue to take every opportunity to intercept illegitimate goods and disrupt transnational criminal enterprises seeking to fund criminal activities with counterfeit or pirated merchandise.”
The CBP also stated that the Department of Homeland Security agencies seized more than $37 million worth of counterfeit goods in 2019. The shipment with the Dior Jordan 1 sneakers would have made up almost 10 percent of that.
