What’s the most popular cheap Chinese knockoff?

Shoes, according to counterfeit seizure statistics from American customs. But maybe this just means it’s easier to detect counterfeit Nike’s than, say, fake Hublots.

Customs and Border Protection says 79% of counterfeit goods seized at the border came from China and another 10% from Hong Kong.   A question comes to mind: what’s the difference between a genuine Nike shoe, assembled at some sweatshop in Shenzen, and a counterfeit Nike shoe… assembled at some sweatshop in Shenzen (presumably not the same one.)?
