You say to your friend in Chinese, “Why could I get the shoes so cheap, but not this?” He replies to you in Chinese, “Because this is a top-brand here in China. Why don’t you buy the one over there? It is not the same brand, but it looks almost identical. Who can tell the difference?!” You think about it and it seems to be a good plan. After all, you can barely tell the difference.
