Where the runway meets the street

Bootleg merchandise is definitely nothing new. But with more and more releases being nearly impossible to get a hold of, we’re seeing unofficial drops — much like the recent Young Thug x Thrasher tee re-release — appear at a somewhat rapid rate.

Accordingly, one enthusiastic N*E*R*D fan decided to take matters into his own hands upon attending ComplexCon and being unable to pick up some exclusive merch, as items sold out before general admission ticket holders could even enter the show floor. His solution was to simply make his own bootleg tee.

Designed for N*E*R*D fans who didn’t have the chance to cop the limited styles, the white T-shirt is decked out with the classic N*E*R*D logo, in addition to other significant symbols. Oh, and the best part of the tee, the caption underneath reads “The official merch sold out. This is a bootleg.”

So if you missed out on N*E*R*D’s ComplexCon goodies — or you’re just looking to add another fire piece to your arsenal — you can pick up this bootleg beauty today online.

For more, Noah recently dropped a selection of N*E*R*D rugby shirts.

Not NYC, not LA.
