The quality of the material on the knock offs are just as good if not better than the replica. Nike makes all of their products in third world countries just like the bootleggers but unlike the bootleggers they have a high overhead to cover with licensing, advertising, and endorsement deals. Also, while you can tell a knock off from an authentic upon close inspection you can spot the "cheap" replica a mile away.
I don't even need a "close inspection" to spot a knockoff in many cases.
And you must have missed the post where someone said that Nike's screen printed jersey is better than anything Reebok ever put out.
